Smoke Notes

AMERICANA is the first album from Neil Young & Crazy Horse in nearly nine years. Crazy Horse is Billy Talbot, Ralph Molina, Poncho Sampedro, and Neil Young.

As you’ll see from the track-listing, AMERICANA is collection of classic, American folk songs. In their day, some of these may have been referred to as “protest songs,” “murder ballads,” or campfire-type songs passed down with universal, relatable tales for everyman.

Some of these compositions which, like ‘Tom Dooley’ and ‘Oh Susannah’, were written in the 1800s, while others, like ‘This Land Is Your Land’ (utilising the original, widely misinterpreted ‘deleted verses’) and ‘Get A Job’, are mid-20th-century folk classics.

It’s also interesting to note that ‘God Save The Queen’, Britain’s national anthem, also became the de facto US national anthem of sorts before Americans came to adopt their very own ‘The Star Spangled Banner’. Each of these compositions is very much part of the fabric of American heritage; the roots of what people think of as “Americana” in cultural terms, using songs as a way of passing along information and documenting the past.

What ties these songs together is the fact that while they may represent an America that may no longer exist, the emotions and scenarios behind these songs still resonate with what’s going on in the country today with equal, if not greater impact nearly 200 years later. The lyrics reflect the same concerns and are still remarkably meaningful to a society going through economic and cultural upheaval, especially during an election year. They are just as poignant and powerful today as the day they were written.
