Neil Young - 5/29/99 - Austin, TX - Audio from the Silver & Gold DVD

Neil Young released the concert dvd Silver & Gold as a companion piece to the 2000 solo album of the same name. While the album itself is very good, this live performance far exceeds it. On May 29, 1999, Neil took the stage at Bass Concert Hall in Austin, TX. From the full show, Neil included 13 songs on the DVD. The highlights on this record include three excellent songs from a mediocre 1999 CSN&Y album, "Looking Forward," "Slowpoke," and an absolutely stunning rendition of "Out of Control," a song that is astronomically better here than the original on record.

Other high points include a rare live version of "Philadelphia" and an interesting take on "Long May You Run" with Neil on pump organ.

I would highly recommend getting the dvd, but I decided to post the audio here because this is particularly great driving music, as well as some good stuff to go to sleep to at night. Enjoy the show.
