I was interviewed at the insistence of the video crew in NYC.
I told them it was 30 years ago that I worked with Niel for 5 hrs. I had forgotten about the talk that day of Niel not wanting to sing. He sat and pouted as we setup. Out of earshot, I asked Steven Stills, "what's the matter with him". It turned out that it was the first time he had sung in the studio. Apparently they convinced him to do this in New York where all the LA producers, hangers on, and engineers were not around. I had been mixing some jazz in the mix room when the call came down from the offices where they had met with Ahmet Ertigen or Jerry Wexler. They did "Mister Soul". It was fine... They took the 8 track tape and left. It was recorded on Ampex 8 track #2. (Number 1 was owned by Less paul).
I was uncomfortable about being on camera. I had no idea what kind of spin and content they were after. I was not clear about what I'm saying above. Watching the video I waited nervously to see what they could have salvaged from my disjointed interview. My name was listed on the online description, Bruce Tergesen, misspelled. The reviewers who had followed Niel through the years gave amazingly insightful observations about the albums released during these years. Finally it reached the end and my interview was not included, whew! OK, just as well. If your a Niel Young fan this video demystifies the wide variations in style as a very prolific and talented artist moves through his life and influences from '66 to '75.
I bought this dvd thinking it had a lot of his songs & information about him. It turned out to be one long series of sometimes not too kind critical opinions from people I have never seen associated with Neil's works. Very few clips of his songs, mostly talk about what the person talking at the time thought about Neil & his songs. This production IS NOT authorized by Neil Young. If I took to heart what some of these so called experts said, I would never buy a Neil Young record. There are a few good parts, but all in all, this is a waste of money. Why pay to listen to someone go on & on about what they think? Neil Young's work speaks for itself. He's a true one of a kind genius who is loved by many. Don't waste your money, pass this one by.
