Watch: Unreleased Neil Young live performance of “Southern Pacific” (Cluster 1 Premiere)

on June 09, 2011, 11:58pm

Neil Young & Crazy Horse might be a household combination when it comes to the legendary folk singer’s backing bands, but The International Harvesters supported Mr. Young in the 80’s producing some truly proto-country results. Released earlier this year on Record Store Day, the quite good collection A Treasure features compiled tour performances from 1984 US tour with the pickin’ ‘n’ fiddlin’ Harvesters, and above you can check out an exclusive performance of “Southern Pacific”, courtesy of Cluster 1, which sees the band chugging along behind Young. The footage is so “raw” that some of it is missing, and is replaced by the album cover in the video.

A Treasure hits stores June 14th. You can pre-order the album here, which comes with all sorts of extra goodies like t-shirts, 180-gram custom artwork vinyls, and Blu-Ray editions that include more live footage such as the clip above.

Update: You can now stream A Treasure in its entirety on RollingStone.com.
