Harvest Moon (Neil Young cover)


The grain harvests are mostly over here now, and the fields are filled with bales of straw. It makes me think of this song.

I love the original Neil Young version, but this foursome (Reina del Cid, Toni Lindgren, Carson McKee, and Josh Turner) do it great service too.

  1. We used to stay in a gite near Beziers.Farmland all around. It was mainly cereal crops. When the Sun shone, which was most of the time, it made me sing "fields of gold" by Sting. I love his version and also the version sang by Eva Cassidy.
    If I hear either I'm immediately transported to Bezier.

    1. Songs can be very evocative, and what nicer way to be reminded of B├ęziers. Fabulous town.

  2. Don't play it too loud if you're feeling fragile this morning!

    1. Too much fun is bad for me. I prefer an early night.

    1. This one's a good version, isn't it. It's very much my favourite of his.

  4. Still too wet here for hay bailing. I think we've exchanged weather this summer. I hear another heat wave is on its way to you.
    Trying to listen to the song, which, I love, over a very loud greek song coming from out on the balcony.

    1. No rain here for ages, and none on the horizon. My poor veg' garden is suffering badly.

      Go on; turn the volume right up!

  5. Those young ones did a marvelous job! I heard this song for the first time when you had it on your blog, I think it was over a year ago. It's now one of my favorites! TY.

    1. Yes, I posted the original version before. I liked this one so much that I thought it worthy of airing again.

  6. Those young people did wonderful job on my favorite, favorite song.

    My daughter took me to a Neil Young concert last winter. I had never had the opportunity before, and she said that because I had introduced his music to her (because I always had it playing in the house) she was returning the favor. It was a wonderful night.

    1. What a very kind thought by your daughter. I'm afraid over here I'm obliged to listen to him on Spotify.

  7. Well I actually listened to it twice and then called up the Neil Young 1992 version. I hadn't heard it for a long time. I have to say that the cover version was really good. Thank you.
