Original info

This was a warmup show for Neil’s European tour with Crazy Horse (which ended up being aborted when Neil cut his left index finger while making a turkey sandwich).

Three songs were played for the first time: Out Of Control, Horseshoe Man and Modern World. This concert has a diverse setlist with selections from the rarely-played Mirror Ball album, and classics such as Cortez The Killer, Don’t Be Denied, Big Time and Hey Hey, My My.

This version of the show is an audience recording, with very good sound quality.

The artwork is at

Thanks to Marc Verbruggen for the artwork (great job!).

Thanks to Mark Diniakos for supplying me with this concert, and to Mr. Clean for fixing the show and making it sound as good as possible.
