Neil Young has shared a new, archival video of his and Crazy Horse’s performance of “Farmer John.” The rendition comes from Neil Young & Crazy Horse’s Nov. 13, 1990 at the Catalyst in Santa Cruz, Calif. The footage comes from Young’s upcoming live release Rust Bucket.
Young shared a brief note along with the new video. “This was the first song I ever lost my mind playing electric guitar on!” he wrote. He then reminisces on when he was first performing the song live with The Squires, one of his first bands. “I remember that night in Fort William Ontario at the 4th Dimension Club with the Squires, when I first started to play the solo and just lost it. It went on for a long time. I didn’t even know what I was doing!”
