Offered is a 1991 Warner Brothers Records 3/4 inch video master of Neil Young and Crazy Horses music video compilation for their album Ragged Glory. This one is for Neil Young completists. A little gathering of music videos to promote Young and Crazy Horse's Ragged Glory album, this short collection consists of productions by video wizards Rusty Cundieff (Fear of a Black Hat) and Julien Temple (The Filth and the Fury). It's hard to know if the world needs two different promotional videos to support "F*!#in' Up," but they're both here, just in case, and each features Young playing a doofus to entertaining effect. Meanwhile, "Farmer John" quickly gets traction, "Over and Over" paraphrases A Streetcar Named Desire, and "Mansion on the Hill" boasts the improbable sight of the band in church. The running time on the tape's label is "24:18", and the tape presents with some oxidation visible on the inside. The size of the large, pro-format tape is 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches.  It has not been tested for playability. It presents in its original case in Excellent condition. 

Smooth Ride Rock & Roll Tour Bus Collection

Each item in the collection is accompanied by a signed letter of authenticity from owner Sandra Placco. Her letters read in part:

Smooth Ride Custom Coach Leasing operated for over 40 years providing tour bus services to rock & roll bands. We began building coaches in our driveway in Red Hook, New York back in 1974. The first tour was with a band called Orleans (their big hit was “Still the One”), and we operated until 2014. We went on to provide tour bus services to dozens and dozens of different acts, including Prince, KISS, Phish, Trey Anastasio, Bob Dylan's “Rolling Thunder Revue”, Janet Jackson, Alice Cooper, TOTO, Bruce Hornsby, Don Henley, Steve Miller, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., Neil Young, Weezer, Fall Out Boy, Arcade Fire, to name just a few!

The business originally started as “Land Yacht” and gained the trusted name of “Smooth Ride” in the early 80s. Our reputation grew, and tours just came in as entertainers found that we provided a better way to get from point A to point B. I personally handled the tour booking, tour contracts with the bands and management companies and our company financials. Around 1984, we started working with Florida Coach, who built custom coaches for us, and later we worked with Night Train Coach of Nashville, Tennessee, as well as many other custom coach companies, over the years. We stopped operating in 2014, as I was preparing for retirement.
