Neil Young: Heart Of Gold

Neil Young: Heart Of GoldAugust 19, 2005. Nashville, Tennessee. A man is sitting alone on a stage at the Ryman Auditorium, the hallowed shrine of American music, the original home of the Grand Ole Opry. He is playing and singing, though the evening's performance is long over and the hall is now empty. When he finishes, there is no applause; he puts his guitar into its case, snaps it closed, and walks off into the shadows. Neil Young has just finished two performances of his newest album, "Prairie Wind", to a crowd whose adoration has never waned, but some things never change: as soon as the audience is gone, Young plays one more song, this one for himself and the sheer love of the music.

"Neil Young: Heart of Gold", a groundbreaking union of film and music ministered by director Jonathan Demme and Neil Young, is the permanent record that emerged from these two concerts at the Ryman. Young, accompanied by musicians strings, horns, and singers, including a gospel choir performed, in its entirety, "Prairie Wind", the album Young had finished recording only months earlier. Following that, Young offered a selection of other songs, mostly from the "Harvest" and "Harvest Moon" albums, which, taken with "Prairie Wind", together feels like a trilogy.
