Farm Aid, is of course the benefit concert put on every year by Neil Young, John Mellencamp, and Willie Nelson, starring theselves and a host of other performers to benefit struggling farmers.

They came to Indianapolis one year when I was living not far from there, but for some reason I didn’t go (couldn’t get the time off or didn’t have the money one, I can’t remember.)

This is one of Neil’s sets from the show which starts out rocking, goes country-acoustic and back to freak out rock. Check out that closing Beatles’ cover, it rocks hard, and manages a decent job of conveying the weird instrumental strangeness of the original, even if it lacks its subtletly.
