NEIL YOUNG & CRAZY HORSE The Complex Sessions (1994)

The Complex Sessions (1994)
Live In The Studio With Crazy Horse

RE UPPED On October 3rd & 4th, 1994, Neil Young & Crazy Horse and director Jonathan Demme convened in Complex Studios in L.A. to make a film. The Complex Sessions captured Neil and the band just after the Sleeps With Angels recording sessions, as Young was still obsessing over the death of Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain. (Although the two never met, you know their chilling connection… Cobain quoted Young’s lyric, “it’s better to burn out than to fade away,” in his suicide note.) What you have here is the audio version of those filmed sessions. Four songs, clocking in at over 25 minutes. No audience, no clutter, no bullshit. Whether Young specifically sang any of these songs with Cobain in mind is hard to say. In fact, he had performed some of them in concert well before this recording date. But, it doesn’t take a lot to read Young’s empathy into a lyric like “…when life is hanging in the breeze.” Out of print, The Complex Sessions was originally released in 1995 as a VHS, LaserDisc and promo CD.
