    Editorial Review

    When Eva Cassidy is swinging her way through "Cheek to Cheek" and getting down and bluesy on "Stormy Monday" on this live set from 1996, it's nigh impossible not to get swept up in her voice's vast, barreling force. Her full range, though, becomes most obvious--and soul-shaking--on the slower side, as with Paul Simon's "Bridge over Troubled Water," Buffy Sainte-Marie's "Tall Trees in Georgia," and "What a Wonderful World." On these latter tunes, Cassidy's mix of aching clarity and rich warmth has a melting quality, speaking through the body to some evanescent presence that she seems to know all too well. She improbably makes Sting's "Fields of Gold" an emotional powerhouse just as easily as she makes Billie Holiday's "Fine and Mellow" an offhand declaration of feeling equal to nearly anything in the jazz vocal canon. In doing so she earns her place among the great singers--artists who could take any song and stamp it indelibly as their own. What Eva Cassidy had in her short life was an unbelievably perfect voice and a musical soul that grasped gospel, folk, blues, jazz, and all points in between as if they were mere stops on a single train ride. Alas, her ride ended in 1996, tragically early. Read more

    I was first turned on to the remarkable Eva Cassidy a few years ago from astory done on her by CBC Sunday Morning.As soon as I heard her perform, I instantly had to find an album, for I was mesmorized.I wish I would have started with this one.Not that the others are bad, quite the contrary.It is just that she is one of those rare performers that when you hear them live, its 100 times better.
    2-0 out of 5 stars Mmm... it's just okay.
    I had heard a few songs from Songbook in the store, and decided to try this 'live' album.Unfortunately, this was quite disappointing.Nothing of the magic that was Songbook.
    5-0 out of 5 stars AWESOME!
    It's a shame we couldn't hear more from this exceptional artist. Eva takes me to another world with her soothing voice. I couldn't wait to hear this CD and share it with my friends. I highly recommend it! ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Though the late Steve Goodman is remembered mainly as the writer of "City of New Orleans" (and perhaps also as John Prine's best friend), Chicagoans knew him as the most ebullient performer on a dynamic folk circuit, and one of the best guitarists as well. The Earl of Old Town was Goodman's home turf, where the audience would know his topical "Lincoln Park Pirates" (about a notorious towing company) from its first notes and friends from blues harpist Corky Siegel to venerable mandolinist Jethro Burns would join their friend onstage to offer support. On this 1978 live recording, Goodman's revival of "Red Red Robin" makes for an unlikely showcase of his guitar virtuosity, while "Lost Highway," "Truck Drivin' Man," and "The Auctioneer" show his fondness for classic (and occasionally corny) country. His offbeat sense of humor found a kindred spirit in Shel Silverstein, whose "Three Legged Man" he covers. (Goodman's own "Men Who Love Women Who Love Men" could pass as a Silverstein song.) As the romp through "Rockin' Robin" and the adaptation of "Saints" into "When the Cubs Go Marching In" attest, the main point of a Goodman performance was having a good time. Goodman, his family, and his close friends knew that he had leukemia years before he died of it in 1984 at the age of 36. Yet a performance like this shows how Goodman got the most out of his life, and how his fans got the most out of Goodman. Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Bob at his best
    There's no need for me to go into detail, given the number of other reviews on this. But this is just Bob Dylan at his absolute best. I'm listening to the album for the zillionth time right now. The acoustic side is great--the best from Bob's early years. Then the electric side just knocks your socks off. There is so much energy in Dylan's singing, and The Band is in rare form. The electic guitar solos are amazing. Each song is better than the last, and every track carries extra energy that you don't hear in the studio versions.

    5-0 out of 5 stars esto no es un album ..es un libro de historia!
    no podemos ver esta edicion como una simple sucesion de temas pertenecientes a un determinado artista...esto excede los oidos, los parlantes, los pentagramas, las criticas, en fin...esto es historia..demas esta hablar del particular momento en que fueron grabados estos temas, del dramatico momento compositivo que atravesada dylan,del ignorante que grito "... judas!!" esta obra no puede faltar en ninguna discoteca de musica contemporanea..es una capsula que encierra la atmosfera de un instante donde las palabras, la actitud, el compromiso de un artista intentan concretar un cambio...NO PODES DEJAR DE ESCUCHARLO, NO PODES DEJAR DE SENTIRLO, NO PODES DEJAR DE CREERLE....a dylan.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Solid Gold
    This album blew me away. I got it about two months ago, and I still can't stop listening to it over and over again. Both parts are absolutely brilliant. If you are a Dylan fan, you will enjoy the acoustic half almost as much as the electic, and if you are not a fan, then at least listen to the electric. Chances are it heavily influenced your favorite music.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great!
    The 10,000 Maniacs have been around since 1981, and it has been a great ride. This album came out in 1993, and features Natalie Merchant's excellent vocals. The band survived Natalie's move to a solo career, and she has done well on her own, but I must say that this album is when they all reached their absolute peak! With the excellent instrumentation and Natalie's beautiful voice, this is a great album to listen to.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A surprising little find
    It's amazing what you can find buried under a pile of junk in the local as-is Goodwill. Sometimes you can find near mint condition CDs, such as "10,000 Maniacs Unplugged." That's exactly what happened to me a few months ago.
    5-0 out of 5 stars My favorite live album
    I have never been a fan of live albums because most live albums seem to have audio problems and at times it seems like the vocalists can't even come close to what they are able to pull off in the studio.This album is an exception and in this case I actually enjoy the "unplugged" live versions better than the originals.I think a lot of the 10,000 Maniacs albums of the 80s suffered from what a lot of albums suffered from which is being just WAY over produced. I don't think a band like this should have ever been given the glossy shine their albums were given back in the day.Here we have a chance to hear the band as they actually sound in an intimate live environment that if it wasn't for the fact you hear the applause between tracks you wouldn't even know it was recorded live.I think another thing that helps this album is Natalie Merchant's voice has matured quite a bit at this point and is now much more pleasant to listen to.I think this has also benefited her much in her solo career.If you like what you hear here I would recomend Natalie Merchant's two disk Retrospective. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Thompson the alchemist turns poo to gold...
    This project originated out of rejection. A true non-reflection of life if ever one existed. Once upon a time, Playboy coveted Thompson's list of "the millenium's best songs". That is, until they saw it. This list included such chart toppers as "Sumer Is Icumen In" from 1260, "King Henry V's Conquest of France" from the 15th century, "Blackleg Miner" from the 19th century, and the bizarre Nat King Cole swinger "Orange Colored Sky". Then reality inverted. One of the least curmudgeonly magazines greeted Thompson's list with an icy silence. Perhaps they felt that those musty old songs would clash with the eternal blaze of naked airbrushed youth? Unflinching, Thompson turned to an art older than some of this set's songs: Alchemy. He miraculously turned what Playboy construed as poo into gleaming bullion. This shaft truly led to gold. So much so that Thompson has hit the road with his "1000 Years of Popular Music" twice.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Absolute Magic
    I've watched this show every night since it arrived three weeks ago. It's not just the excellent production, the sheer talent and huge versatility of the performers. This show has some magic ingredient. Utterly captivating.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Finally a Thompson live DVD that really clicks
    The first two Richard Thompson live dvd's were marred by slightly uninspiring song selections and fairly basic camera work. But third time's the charm - this lovely dvd presentation of Thompson's "1000 Years of Popular Music" show is simply one of the most essential items in his entire catalogue - along with "Henry the Human Fly", "I Want To See the Bright Lights Tonight", "Shoot Out the Lights", "The Old Kit Bag" and "Rumor and Sigh". And it's essential not only for Thompson fans, but for just about anyone who's interested in the history of popular music. Starting with old English folk song "Summer is a-cumming in" (which was also sung at the climax of 70s horror movie classic The Wicker Man), and ending with a version of "1985" (a download hit for the group Bowling for Soup a few months prior to this recording) and in between covering everything from English music hall, Gilbert & Sullivan, jazz standards and merseybeat - this is a wonderful selection of haunting songs. No, you won't find any of Richard Thompson's legendary electric guitar workouts on here, and you won't find any of his own songs, even though many of them could have matched the timeless quality of the great stuff that IS on here- but the dvd DOES manage to present Thompson as one of the most plain enjoyable live performers in the world. And it's all packaged in a lovely box with artwork, song notes and two bonus cd's. Now if only they'd do a presentation of Thompson's OWN song catalogue in this format - and that's a hint, in case any of the people responsible for this great set happen to be reading this. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars best dylan recording ever
    When Robert Zimmerman(Bob Dylan) started, he was a Woodie Guthrie clone. Many of the old Woodie Guthrie type folkies felt that the torch had been passed to a new generation. Many other young people,like myself,prefered Dylan songs done by popular rock groups of the time because Dylan's words were awsome, but the sound wasn't as good as rock music.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Dylan + the Band = Brilliance
    A strong live set from Zimmy and his ex-backup group, the Band. The energy here is everywhere, and though not as much as on Hard Rain, Before the Flood is my favorite Dylan live album out of the three I own, by a mile.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A Rocking Good Time
    This is the second record that Mr. D recorded for David Geffin's Asylum label before he went back to Colombia, (both this record and "Planet Waves" are now with CBS/Sony where all Dylan's stuff is now) and it's a rocking good time of a record. Dylan's voice is right up front and central, the Band's playing is strong. And Dylan performs a very, very angry, version of "It's Alright Ma," where the audience goes nuts when he shouts out, "Even the President of the United States sometimes must have to stand naked." You have to remember that this record came out during the Watergate scandal, seems Mr. Nixon wasn't to popular with the Dylan crowd. Five stars for this one.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Keen is keen at the Ryman!
    I have REK in live format on 3 CDs and 2 DVDs and although this one does not have any "story telling" on (like Live Dinner #2), it is the best.I can't wait to get it on DVD when it is released in early October!The song selections - we all could want more - are some of his best and the music (the band rocks) makes you want to take the CD, your pick-up truck and your cooler of beer out to your favorite drinking spot and turn it up to 10 and stay all night (and hitting the replay button) listening and sipping on your cold Shiner Bock!Great renditions of Feelin Good Again, I'm Comin Home, What I Really Mean, and Gringo Honeymoon (I want to do this with my wife) for the lover in you; Shades of Gray, Amarillo Highway and Corpus Christi Bay for your rowdy side; and The Road Goes On Forever over 10 minutes long - first five with lyrics and last five with rockin instrumental by the band - that will be a real treat on DVD. I am guessing that this was done near Christmas given the rendition of Merry Christmas From the Family - but it is a good one.Bottom line is that this is a gem and a real keeper.Buy it TODAY!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Hungry for the Kingston Trio
    When I was an innocent teenager, an older cousin introduced my to the Kingston Trio and said very intelligent people like them.Well, she was right!This CD is a broad scope of their ability to perform all areas of folk music.I especially enjoyed the part of the album that is live from the Hungry i as there is the banter and humor and wild wit thrown in by the guys as they perform.The audience is having a wonderful time and show it.It's worth the price of the CD just to hear songs like "They Call the Wind Maria", the joyful cynicism of "The Merry Minuet"and the rousing "Zombie Jamobree".Macabre, but fun.While I later heard trios with a little tighter and closer harmony, such as Chad Mitchell Trio, Peter, Paul, and Mary, I will always love the Kingston Trio for being the first.So, if you are intelligent, go get this CD.Excellent!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Quintessential Kingston Trio
    If you are going to get one CD of the Kingston Trio, this is the one I would purchase, for this is when they were young and in their prime. I do not think the influence of the Kingston Trio on modern popular music and rock and roll and radio play is credited fully enough by music historians, in this album you get a sense of the 'beat' generation live at the 'Hungry i' in San Francisco repleat with bongos, as well as their landmark debut album that included the number 1 jukebox hit of 1958, Scotch and Soda with vocals by Bob Shane. For all of the thousands of kids who struggle with a G-cord learning guitar, this is an album that should be heard, and if you are looking for something to add variety on your ipod, shuffle in a few of these songs. These are the originators of so many cover hit tunes like Wimbeway and Sloop John B by the Beach Boys, and the long running hit Tom Dooley. I think one of the strongest impressions that is made is the great wit and intelligence these muscians had, back in the day when being a 'college man' actually was reflected in erudite speech and humor. There are a few tunes that seem to lack inspiration, and some anachronistic references to individuals like John Foster Dulles, however there are few albums that so perfectly capture a feeling and a revolution of the cusp of popular music as does these two. ...

    This is a good live recording, but owning better live bootlegs of hers, and having attended better concerts of hers makes me wonder who decided what got put in this release and why?It took me a long time to shell out the bucks for this, and had I read the reviews on Amazon first, I probably would have spent the money on something else.Lucinda still makes me weak in the knees and I'll still buy the studio stuff and certainly keep going to the shows.The Fillmore might be legendary, but her performances in Houston far exceed what transpired on these San Francisco nights.

    When I first heard "Change the Locks", I could not believe my ears. This is one of the most thrilling live recordings I've ever heard. Yeah, her singing is raw and yet you can hear every syllable. Just the way she sings "change-the...CAAAARRRRRRR I drive" blows my socks off.

    Editorial Review

    The brooding Bob Dylan of the 1966 live collection in the Dylan bootleg series gave way to an even more hooded character on the second live bootleg album from 1974. Which makes the jump back to a younger Dylan in this set all the more jarring. Here is Dylan as an eager-to-please 23 year old with nothing between him and his worshippers but a guitar, a harmonica, and, for four songs, his lover, Joan Baez. In marked contrast to the acerbic electric Dylan of the mid-'60s and the tight-lipped living legend of the mid-'70s, here is Dylan as entertainer. Joking and bantering with the crowd, Dylan deals up some favorites ("The Times They Are A-Changin'," "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right"), but is already shedding his earnest folkie persona; imagine another artist a mere two years into his career declining to perform a hit on the scale of "Blowin' in the Wind." But Dylan was moving fast. Having completed the last all-acoustic collection of his early years three months before the Philharmonic concert, he would record the half-electric/half-acoustic Read more

    This late in Bob Dylan's career, it seems that Colombia is content to release (and profit from) a perennial bootleg album. For diehard fans there are reasons to buy and cherish all of these, not all of them healthy.For your casual fan however, some releases are better than others.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Terrific early Dylan
    Terrific, eh? Four stars, eh? Yes, I know, Dylan-philes everywhere are already seeing me in hell, but I'm just trying to be fair and balanced. So sue me.

    5-0 out of 5 stars You have got to hear this album!
    This has to be the most incredible album I've heard in years. My introduction to Bela Fleck and the Flecktones was on a trip to the States from the UK in 1993 on business. I flicked on the TV in my hotel room and there was a music festival on. I watched the incredible wizardry of Victor Wooton on the bass and was transfixed. Never before had I heard a banjo sound so exciting as it was they way Bela Fleck played it. I had only a few minutes to listen before I had to leave, but that experience left its mark. Why then did it take me 13 years to try out a Flecktones album? God knows, but all I can say is BUY THIS ALBUM! Whatever musical vibe you're into, whether Jazz, Bluegrass, etc, I can guarantee you will LOVE this album. The music is sensational, and the incredible talent of all the musicians is something I find it hard to put in words. As you can tell, I'm now hooked on Bela Fleck and the Flecktones! And I suspect you will be too.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Really fun stuff !
    This has to be one of my favorite live CDs I have.It is really refreshing to hear this stuff live even if you own all of the studio CDs the Flecktones have made.Unlike many other bands, these guys always change things up during each live event.Each song during every concert is never played the same way...not only does that keep it fresh for the listener, I'm sure it also keeps it fresh for the Flecktones.
    5-0 out of 5 stars great cd
    i'm a fusion/metheny/rippingtons/corea fan...being bored with much of todays music happened to purchase this cd after reading some reviews...now own about 6 of their cd's...this was the first one i purchased and i think overall my favorite.if you have any interest in jazz/fusion/bluegrass/or a mixture of all 3 i would highly advise giving this group and in particular this cd a try...you won't be disappointed. ...

    Editorial Review

    "Stories" is the operative word here.The late Harry Chapin penned tales that touched a chord in listeners regardless of their age, background, or truth be told, regardless even of the type of music they normally listened to. Chapin always came across as a tough guy with a heart of gold, a brainy type who wasn't afraid to get his hands dirty--much like the protagonist of "Taxi" (a terrific rendition of which is contained herein). In addition to radio staples like "Cat's in the Cradle," the 1976 recording also sheds light on slightly lesser-known pieces like "Circle" and "Mr.Tanner." Chapin's affable manner shines through the entire album, giving it a disarming quality that's not always present on the studio versions. Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars My Favorite Chapin Album
    I wouldn't necessarily consider myself a fan of Harry Chapin, even though I own four of his albums - just one who appreciates his work.Introduced to Chapin in high school, via my dad, his Live album still remains my favorite; in fact, it's my favorite live album of any artist that I've heard.
    4-0 out of 5 stars So What's With No 'Love Is Just Another Word', Already...?
    Harry Chapin confirmed with me following a later concert that the majority of these tracks come from his appearance at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, site of my earlier attendance and one of three west coast venues that the eleven live tracks on this album are drawn from.What no one has been able to confirm is why after all these years Love Is Just Another Word remains Harry Chapin's only studio track yet to make it to CD-format.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Very good music and story telling
    I don't remember when I bought this tape, I think it was in the middle 70's in Readying PA. I was living in PA at the time and working all around the Readying area, out of Hamberg PA. Some times a job would to Scranton PA where the song Banana's took place. I went down the hill Harry was singing about.

    5-0 out of 5 stars JT Live is ALIVE
    Those of us who are long-time JT fans have come to expect a certain level of care, craftsmanship, and recording excellence from his studio recordings.His last two CDs, Hourglass and October Road (as of this mid-2006 writing), are good examples -- the music is often controlled and sometimes subdued (and often up tempo and raucous), but almost always polished to a sheen.
    5-0 out of 5 stars best review
    I am a huge JT fan, and this double-disc set covers all the greats. JT, his band and the backup singers create a great musical masterpiece. I have seen him in concert four times, and this CD best resembles JT live. Highly recommend!

    5-0 out of 5 stars This Album Contains My Favorite Music Moment Ever!
    This entire album is excellent, with every track musically sound and enough different from the original takes to provide some interest and excitement.However, most importantly, there is a minute-long sequence on here that just amazes me every time I hear it.At the end of "Shower the People", they break into just vocal harmony amongst 5 people, and then a ridiculously talented back-up singer busts out an amazing, jaw-dropping solo.It still makes me sit back and say "Wow!"I wish I knew the guy's name so I could see what else he sings!

    It's December of 1962, the folk revival is in full effect, andan absolutely raucous crowd whoops and hollers throughout 32 sparklingcuts. This incarnation of the Foggy Mountain Boys includes Dobro whizJosh Graves and fiddle master Paul Warren, and the exciting musicblends exquisite picking, exuberant harmonies, and a touch ofplayfulness. The diverse repertoire offers instrumental reels and rags,Carter Family staples, traditional and old-time folk, F&S originals,and gospel hymns (with banjo virtuoso Earl Scruggs switching tofingerpicked guitar). Also included are novelties such as fan-favorite"The Martha White Theme," "Old MacDonald," and ofcourse, "Ballad of Jed Clampett," which would hit number onethe following year. Merle Travis joins in on the final two numbers, afitting conclusion to this wonderful show. This is bluegrass at bothits most artistic and accessible. Read more

    With a slate of more than 200 shows a year, Ben Harper has never been an album-tour-album-tour kind of artist; for him and his fans, the stage is the ultimate proving ground. So after four studio albums, Harper has finally released his first official live set, a 25-song double-disc collection that surveys each of his four albums and adds a couple of well-executed, if not terribly inventive, covers. Disc one is electric and finds Harper and the Innocent Criminals tearing through their patented mix of rock, folk, soul, and blues. Yet, the solo-acoustic disc two is the true prize, putting the spotlight squarely on Harper's incredibly agile, versatile, and enormously moving voice. In this pared-down setting, Harper shows an uncanny ability to connect with his audience, offering one spellbinding performance after another. Culled from two years' worth of shows--no two songs are taken from the same concert--Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars worthy
    this recording doent fully convey the essence of his concerts. there are better recordings of each song one can find on morpheus or limewire. It is worth the money spent however, i just found that there were a lot more worthy performances of his out there.

    5-0 out of 5 stars To dig his music, you must bleed
    Harper is one of the most eclectic and soulful artists that I've heard in my life and each time I listen to this live concert, it turns me inside out. When I am unable to understand my rage, my pain or pride, my bleeding, my state of mourning, my yearning for a lover, I play Woman in You, and I howl (shamelessly) along with Ben Harper, without censoring my fall and then my rise.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Best Live Album
    If you have never heard any Ben Harper, or if you are the world's biggest Ben fan...this is the album for you!The double disc set really shows off Ben's versatility, grace, and style.This is one of my favorite albums of all time...it always makes me feel like I'm right at the show.

    Editorial Review

    You can almost hear Simon & Garfunkel begin to like each other again on this now-legendary set. On September 19, 1981, the duo reunited for just the second time since their initial breakup and revealed a camaraderie that had apparently vanished years earlier. Not only do they reprise their shared hits, they also work in a few of Paul Simon's solo gems and a couple of telling covers--one from the Everly Brothers and one from Chuck Berry. The band includes the best session men around. By the time they get to the sincerity of "Old Friends" and the joy of "The 59th Street Bridge Song," you sense a relationship fully repaired. After this success, they even planned a studio record together--one that eventually became Simon's overlooked Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful music.
    Not only a great companion to anyone's Simon and Garfunkel collection, but also a great live CD in its own right, "The Concert in Central Park" is a wonderful and varied collection of songs sung by one of the greatest folk-rock duos of the 20th century.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Simon & Garfunkel: The Concert in Central Park
    Even through I wasn't living when Simon & Garfunkel re-united to do a free concert in New York's Central Park. And even through it was a free concert, but I bet that if they did sold tickets, that the concert would be sold out, and any time that they can get Simon & Garfunkel on the same stage pefroming together. So I would have to envy the 500,000 + people that were at this concert. You would see the show on PBS, and added up buying the dvd, but both on video tape, and audio of this show, you are still missing stuff. The songs are Mrs. Robinson, Homeward Bound, America, Me and Julio down by the schoolyard, Scarborugh Fair, April come she will, Wake up little Suize, Still crazy after all these years, American tune, Late in the evening, Slip slidin' away, A heart in New York, Kodachrome/Maybelliene, Bridge over troubled water, Fifty ways to leave your lover, the boxer, Old friends, the 59th street bridge song (feelin' groovy), the sound of silence. Most of the show is made up Paul Simon's solo songs, after they disbanded in 1970 after the release of Bridge over troubled water, and Art Garfunkel joins Paul Simon on most of his solo songs expect for Still crazy after all these years and Fifty ways to leave your lover. On the cd, you are missing 2 songs, the late great Johnny Ace, and a reprise of Late in the evening. On the cd you hear Art say to the aduidence, that the next song he is going going to do is the almost only non Paul Simon song in the show is A heart in New York, and that is right after Slip slidin' away, on the video tape of the show, when they end the song it just fades to black, and I also notiuce some additonal music, and both of them, introucing the band, but they don't annouce them on the shoe all togehter until the start of the reprise of Late in the evening, even through we o see Paul Simon introuce Stevie Gadd on drums after he signs fifty ways to leave your lover, other then those things the dvd andthe cd are just great, in less I have forgotten something else.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I was there then...and after listening I was there again.
    I attended this show in Central Park. The sound is so clear and captures the spirit of that late summer night in New York which I got to spend with 500,000 of my closest friends. I was right up front and with the height of the stage I could only really see the top of Art's head, so listening to the album without actually seeing S&G is (in the words of Yogi Berra) like "deja vu all over again. A most enjoyable celebration of the music of one of America's true musical treasures! ... Read more

    This is a lovely Neil album... I wouldn't call it his best, as some of the punk experimentation at the end ("Welfare Mothers" in particular) seems very un-Neil -- though then again, maybe exactly Neil for an artist who has made an identity by changing.Indeed, when you look at this album, one finds Neil using his typical / acoustic electric formats... but somehow both forms seem to be digging a little deeper, challenging new ground, more than before.It is an album of experimentation...

    No question about it - Neil Young is one of the greatest musicians of our (or any) time. And Rust Never Sleeps is proof of this. It's my second-favorite Neil Young CD, behind only Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere.

    The problem with these 2 disc multi-artist concerts is that they're often bloated with lesser performers and lesser performances.Here, not so, KK says at the beginning of the concert that "backstage we have assembled one of the greatest group of perfoming artists ever" or something like that, and it's no exaggeration.George Harrison, Neil Young, Johnny Cash, Eric Clapton, Tom Petty, Eddie Vedder, Stevie Wonder and on and on...
