Alabama Shakes – Gimme All Your Love (Live on SNL in 2015)

I hate to admit it, but I sort of lost track of Alabama Shakes since the excitement of hearing their first record, Boys & Girls, back in 2012. Sure, I’d read or hear something about them occasionally, but I didn’t keep track of them. Then last week I heard “Future People” on Spotify – a […]

Neil Young with R.E.M. – Ambulance Blues (Live at the Bridge Benefit in 1998)

At the Bridge Benefit, everything is acoustic. At least, mostly acoustic. Here’s an outstanding version of “Ambulance Blues” – from the great On The Beach record – with R.E.M. as the backing band from the 1998 benefit. At least the guitarist and the bassist, since the drummer had left by this point, and Michael Stipe […]

Warren Zevon with Neil Young – Splendid Isolation (Live at the Bridge School Benefit in 1993)

“Splendid Isolation” is from Warren Zevon’s 1989 record Transverse City. Neil Young played on the record, and he joins Warren on stage to lend his vocals, harmonica, and guitar to the track. It’s pretty sweet. [Editor’s Note: They took down the video version, but I found this audio version to replace it. I wish the […]

Neil Young – Pocahontas (Live at Farm Aid in 2014)

We’re going to keep the Neil Young birthday celebration going another day here. Tonight, it’s something for the real Neil freaks. In September, Neil did an acoustic set at Farm Aid. It included this rare rendition of “Pocahontas”, one of Neil’s great Rust era songs. Every Neil freak knows this song. But there aren’t many […]

Neil Young & Crazy Horse – Change Your Mind (Live at Farm Aid in 1994)

Today is Neil Young’s birthday. He turns 69. We’re celebrating by posting this brilliant version of “Change Your Mind” from Farm Aid in 1994. Sleeps With Angels had just been released a month before, so “Change Your Mind” was a fresh song. Neil and the Horse give it a good work over. Lots of energy […]

Gov’t Mule with Jackie Greene – Crime In The City (Live In 2014)

This past Friday – Halloween – I drove down to Cincinnati to see Gov’t Mule play at the Taft Theatre. It was Mule-O-Ween.┬áJackie Greene was joining the band for a set of Neil Young tunes. They were calling it Young Mule. As a lifelong Neil freak, how could I not go? And it was an […]

Gov’t Mule – Since I’ve Been Loving You (Live in 2013)

I know what you’re thinking. “That’s odd. He usually doesn’t post two Gov’t Mule videos in the same week.” Well, we’re breaking all the rules this week. Why? I’m going to see The Mule on Halloween – Mule-O-Ween – in Cincinnati. With special guest Jackie Greene, The Mule is doing an evening of Neil Young […]
