Neil Young finds bootleg records of his own work in an LA store - 1970s


kkkfts : How is this video real lol

UpstateMediaGuy : "Your Mother Should Know" playing in the background just makes this video all the more strange. Amazing, yes, but just a strange vibe.

Christopher Donnells : Wait. Let me get this straight. Neil freaking Young walks into a record store and not one person recognizes him???

LJ Mendez : Wow. Surreal. Big Neil Young fan, and he's 100% in the right.....

Alan Turing : Damn that note Neil left would be worth so much with that bootleg

Garnet Nard : “Hey boss there’s a smelly hippie here who says he’s Neil young....”

Abraham Nixon : This is so incredible. I can't believe this even exists. Ciao.

Robert Orellana : Neil young was like a bull in a china shop behind that counter knocked over that candle

MavianMK : and now the owner has a personal note from Neil...$$

KimInChains : "Call the cops!" 😅

Zack Yoder : i like seeing the audio equipment for sale on the side. they dont make em like that anymore. and the music as well

mohammad5 : Such a neat video, it's really neat to see footage from this era. The Clerk and Neil Young were super cool too, haha. I'm so curious how that phone conversation went too.

pungochem : Does anybody know where that place is at? I want to see what it looks like today. The only clues I got are 6734 and Sunset Center Garage is near by.

Lmclean89 : truly shows how omnipresent The Beatles were ha!

jeff sanders : Dude had Neil Young's number! I'm sure it was an office number, but still.

Pete Marr : "I dont listen to records" and he is playing records in a record shop.. Hmmmm.. Classic ;)

dave idmarx : Are the Beatles being compensated since the guy is playing the Magical Mystery Tour 8-track in the store?

Steven Whiting : "I made this record". Well no you didn't. You played at a concert, someone recorded it illegally then they paid out to get the record pressed along with the sleeve. Should of said this is my music.

bswitza : It's so bootleg, even a caveman will buy it.

alfwok : Wasn't Neil Young kind of a big deal back then? How would someone who works in a record store not know who he was? Any old people out there?

Steven Whiting : Discovered Green Eyed Lady cause of this video.

Will Rucker : Hahaha, "I'll be sure to look you up."

Steven Whiting : "Do you take tapes?" Those two look so crooked its funny. Even looked like he had his black gloves in his back pocket still. Bootleg tapes or they just robbed them?

Joe Alesi : Geez, Neil with a camera crew, playing cop, stealing records, hassling a store employee. Just sign a bunch of records and autographs already so the guy can sell them on eBay 40 years later. By the way, can I have Neil Young’s phone number?

RKTologist : kevin parker goes into record store, tries to steal record, buys candle

Bryan Steele : Man that is small store! cool though

Trent Hogan : Pete Townsend is on the front cover of Rolling Stone magazine and that was the December 1971 issue but they often came out a couple weeks early and there's no Christmas decorations to be seen so I would guess this to be ~November 1971. I dig the song playing @ 1:20 It's Green-Eyed Lady | Sugarloaf ->

TV : little does he know he is going to get copy striked or music in the background.

GuinnessandPizza : This needs to hit a million views so the clerk can know this video exist and comment on it.


Mike : Do you think the sales person put on Blue Jay Way in the middle of the chorus..." Please don't be long" because he knew Neil would find out?

Ronnie O : Classic!

JJ Martin : anybody know the song that begins after Sugarloaf's Green Eyed lady...begins with "a million thoughts...a 1,000 words...

Rob Baker : Feel kinda bad for the clerk

Deborah Meredith : Also they could be charged with receiving stolen property

Master Longdong : Love the background song "Green Eyed Lady" Neil is off my radar. His soundtrack for "Dead Man" was ok but the last thing he did that was worth listening to was "Harvest".

rockmanted : Who the heck is that vagrant who came into the store stealing records?

albear972 : That has got to be one of the shadiest record stores ever.

bus driver : I wonder if the guy googled Neal Young after work oh wait that was 1971 nevermind.

TheBluRayCritic : Very interesting.

g37dude : Who sings that first song?

Todd Hilehoffer : I would have at least had him sign a record for me. He works in a record store and has no clue who Neil Young is. What a loser...

John Seal : It's nice to see an artist calmly stick up for himself, if nearly fifty years after the fact.

Deborah Meredith : This is outrageous, that's stealing from NEIL YOUNG and ifnibwas there is be in awe of his presence but if be mad as he'll bc that is stealing from a great artist whom I've loved for ever! And the clerk must be crazy not to understand where he was coming from. This freaking world is insane

Elrond Plankton : Cripes video cameras didn't exist until the late 70's early eighties which means this is shot on 16mm film with a sound guy next the camera guy with a boom....jeeeeez...good scam tho....a curse on all who lie in media are directly responsible for the downfall of journalism and unbiased is fun to destroy the modern world. Creeps

Edward Bliss : With how the record store guy is avoiding a camera that's pointed in his face, I'm beginning to rethink this clip. I beginning to wonder if this was staged

brez9091 : You're a Canuck, from the great White North, and you're now living in sunny LA. You've got money, fame, and all the girls on Sunset. And you're visiting record shops, so you can bust some poor clerks chops. If that's not the definition of an asshole, I don't know what it is. I guess it's just Neil being stuck up, like his Pa.

Mia fio : Wld've Paid to be a fly on that wall bk then!!! 👍😀☮️👍😀☮️ Needless to say Neil Young had EVERY RT!!

MiraculousMImikyu : I’ve actually seen shit like this in some of my local stores, it’s messed up!! My favorite record store has crap like this. Pisses me off man!
