Greendale The Book By Neil Young

Bookmark and Share
Neil Young's latest project, Greendale, about the battle of the Green family in a small town in northern California against the forces of corporate greed and environmental destruction, has already produced a successful and critically acclaimed album, film and world tour. Now, Sanctuary is proud to publish the long-awaited companion book to this landmark creation.

The book is the perfect visual and literary complement to the Greendale body of work and a must-have for all fans of Neil Young. It includes fully illustrated chapters for each of the piece's ten songs. Each song is introduced with an overview by Young and followed by the complete song lyrics, which have been evocatively illustrated with stunning woodcuts by long-time Young collaborator and illustrator James Mazzeo. The book also contains a comprehensive Green family tree accompanied by illustrated biographies of each of its members. It closes with an exclusive 50-page look at the artwork of Greendale character Earl Green (the 'Earl Green Collection'), abstract paintings presented in stunning full colour.

With Greendale Neil Young has made what the LA Daily News has described as "A LOW-FI MASTERPIECE! The perfect marriage of music and images" It tells the tale of a family, the murder of a cop and the evolution of a young girl named Sun Green. For the film/DVD of the project Young himself shot actors on locations on his native Northern Californian home turf to create his Greendale, a rural town that is a microcosm of a world in crisis.

In essence Greendale is a tale of collective awakening told via ten interlinking songs performed by Young and his long time friends Crazy Horse. They don't appear in the film but Neil's distinctive voice is heard singing the story as well as the dialogue of his lip-synching actors.

Neil Young is one of the most influential singer/songwriters of his generation. His work from the 1960s through to the present day has never failed to command critical respect. A brilliant songwriter, a quirky, high-pitched singer and a guitarist whose piercing style has influenced an entire generation of young alternative rock fans, Neil Young has spent his career exploring nearly every genre of popular music. His body of work includes the classic albums After The Gold Rush, Harvest, Rust Never Sleeps and Freedom. He has continued writing and performing new and groundbreaking music into his fourth decade as a recording artist and his latest Greendale project has captured the imaginations of critics and fans of his music alike.

James Mazzeo is a lifelong painter and a veteran of the 60s psychedelic era and rock'n' roll light show art world. His work is in major art collections worldwide. Both Young and Mazzeo reside in California.
