Neil 93

TICKETS TORN IN HALF:August 20,1993-NEIL YOUNG w/ BOOKER T. and THE MG’s/SOUNDGARDEN/BLIND MELON @Jones Beach. This was one of those WTF moments,Neil with Booker T. and The MG’s. Sure they did the DYLAN TRIBUTE at MSG last year but that’s different as in it’s a DYLAN tune, not NEIL tunes. Musically I knew they would pull it off and be worth more than the ticket price but a full 90 minutes of tunes left me wondering…What would they play?…How will they play it?…Will Neil do a few BOOKET T. tunes? Hmmmm, the WTF factor times ten. So the stage is set after being entertained by BLIND MELON and a superb set by SOUNDGARDEN (Neil always has the best opening acts).All served in the pouring rain. The show must go on.

BOOKER T. JONES on the organ, STEVE “play it Steve” CROPPER on guitar, DONALD “Duck” DUNN on bass with JIM KELTER on drums, and NEIL. Neil shreds it on guitar while the band gives off a groove with out mellowing out the tune. It was amazing.AND The Dock Of The Bay…well.
