Neil Young To Follow-Up ‘Songs For Judy’ With Electric Counterpart

Cameron Crowe and Joel Bernstein have let slip that they are working on an electric counterpoint of the upcoming ‘Songs For Judy’ compilation of 1975 performances.

In the notes for ‘Songs for Judy’ Cameron and Joel said:

Cameron:
We never made it to the electric sets. Such was Joel’s attention to detail, and our shared commitment to exploring every crevice of the 1976 acoustic rabbit hole, by the time we finished part one, we were spent. We took a little break. Decades passed, but we always returned to the joys of this compilation. The tour had been so satisfying, and so different from all that rock would become in the ensuing years, something indelible was captured in our humble collection. Listening to it today is a little like discovering postcards from home. It was a precious time in Neil Young’s journey, a breath of oxygen in between some of his biggest adventures. Everybody involved was cresting towards another career peak, Rust Never Sleeps was just around the corner, and you can close your eyes and imagine the thrill in the room. It’s Bicentennial year in America, Neil Young and Crazy Horse are in your town, and out walks Neil with his acoustic. Press play.

Joel:
Meet you back at my place this fall. Let’s start the electric-set compilation…

Cameron:
Sounds good. I remember a blistering 9-minute “Cortez the Killer” from the Dane County Coliseum, in Madison that was absolutely essential…

Joel:
Here we go again…

Filmmaker Cameron Crowe and photographer Joel Bernstein met because of Neil Young in 1974. Bernstein was Neil’s photographer, Crowe was the teen writer for Rolling Stone he would document later in his movie ‘Almost Famous’. “Joel Bernstein and I first met on a crisp morning in March, 1974. It was already an auspicious day,” Crowe said. “Neil Young had agreed to join The Eagles for a benefit at the Cuesta College Auditorium in San Luis Obispo. We were all together for the bus ride up the coast. Neil was notoriously press-shy at the time. I snuck onto the bus as a guest of the Eagles”.

‘Songs For Judy’ will be available on November 30 on CD and streaming and 14 December on vinyl.
