Neil Young with The Friends And Relatives - Hartford, CT - 2000-08-14

Neil Young with the Friends and Relatives at the Meadows Music Theater, Hartford, CT, August 14, 2000.

What a special show. Maybe the setlist will tell you why:

Motorcycle Mama
Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere
I Believe In You
Unknown Legend
Dance, Dance, Dance
Buffalo Springfield Again
Razor Love
From Hank To Hendrix
Daddy Went Walkin'
Peace Of Mind
Walk On
Bad Fog Of Loneliness
Harvest Moon
World On A String
Tonight's The Night

Encore 1:
All Along The Watchtower

Encore 2:
Mellow My Mind

Some of my favorite Neil tunes...I love the Harvest Moon album and as you can see it is well-represented here...but Words, Powderfinger and Everybody Knows This is Nowhere really did it for me...

If the setlist isn't special enough for you, how about "The Friends And Relatives"?

Neil Young - vocals, guitar, keyboards, harmonica
Donald "Duck" Dunn - bass
Jim Keltner - drums
Ben Keith - Pedal Steel
Spooner Oldham - keyboards
