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

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

Rob Baker : Feel kinda bad for the clerk

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

Lmclean89 : truly shows how omnipresent The Beatles were ha!

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

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

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.

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?

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

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?

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

alpacino92780 : the greatest thing bout this is the way it was handled. It was civil and peaceful sure if this would've happened today a gun wouldve been involved. Today generation thrashes Mcdonalds for not having their order right ...the70s mang...!!!

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

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

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

Elrond Plankton : Staged...if this was shot on anything other than a smart phone recently I'd be surprised....this is quite possibly the cleanest VHS or Beta I have ever seen. Not a fold in the tape. zero dropouts, clean as heck, the vehicles going by in the window do not look like sixties or seventies....Neil Young...right....

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

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


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...

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

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