Neil Young: Heart of Gold is a 2006 documentary and concert film by Jonathan Demme, featuring Neil Young. The film was made in the summer of 2005 in Nashville, Tennessee, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, and was released to theaters on February 10, 2006. The film documents Young’s premiere of his songs from his album Prairie Wind at the Ryman Auditorium.

Overview

The film opens with interviews with Young and most of his band, which includes Emmylou Harris, Young’s wife Pegi Young, steel guitarist Ben Keith, and keyboardist Spooner Oldham. They and the other band members describe the concert and the making of Prairie Wind. The recording of the album and the filming of the concert occurred just before and after Young’s surgery to correct a cerebral aneurysm, and just a few months after the death of Young’s father Scott Young.

The first half of the concert consists entirely of songs from Prairie Wind, and the second half consists of acoustic songs from throughout Young’s career. Young describes the inspiration behind several of his songs.
