More Neil Young from the '90's! Here we have a great show from his fantastic 1993 tour with Booker T & The MG's. This was just a great tour, with a different sound provided by the great back-up of the legendary BT & the MG's, and a great and unique setlist. This tour also has a fond place in my heart because it was the first time I saw Neil live, and what a great show it was. This is a good quality audience recording, although not nearly as pristine as the excellent soundboard recording from the Torhout Festival, Belgium, 1993-07-03 (but you all should have that already, as it is a must-own for all NY fans, and readily available), but this much lesser-known recording date boasts the compete setlist rather than the shortened festival set, so we get several songs not included in that stellar 1993 recording. Also included here are two additional songs ('I Believe in You' and 'This Note's For You') that were only included in the first few shows of the tour, and then dropped from the setlist for all subsequent shows. So, we get a fuller concert experience of this tour here. Great stuff!
