Neil Young and the International Harvesters on Austin City Limits in 1984

In honor of Neil’s new record, A Treasure, I’m posting three videos from the YouTubes. Back in 1984, Neil played on Austin City Limits with the International Harvesters. A few clips have made their way online, and they are fantastic. Especially the “Down by the River”. Enjoy.

Smoking. And you can tell those guys are having fun. Drummond is bouncing around on stage throughout the song, and Neil gives himself to the solos.

They also played a good “Old Man”:

And, last but not least, “Powderfinger”. I’m loving that hat.
