Neil Young: Songwriting & Life at the Ranch 1971

I came across this fascinating video showing Neil Young, circa 1971, hanging out on his California ranch. This time period is right before he released his masterpiece, Harvest. We also get to meet, the “Old Man,” the subject of Neil’s classic “Old Man “.

As a songwriter, it’s not surprising that Neil’s ranch environment played such a vital inspirational role in his music of the day. Hat Tip to the excellent music blog, Aquarium Drunkard!
