If you have free time, put this on. You won't regret it. That is the first time they ever played the song together, it is probably the most perfect thing I've ever heard.

When they started playing this I got excited cause I knew I hadn't heard it by dave & tim and then after thinking about it I didn't think I had ever heard of them playing it. Made that comment to my gf, and she just looked at me like "you know way too much information about these bands concerts" and then when dave made the announcement they never played it together before she was pretty impressed.

I am actually listening to this right now, and it's great, I really like the sound of just dave & tim on this song.

Dave and Tim were excellent. I thought the Neil set was too slow for the end of the night and I left before his last song. Highlights were our guys and Mellancamp. He really is a great performer.

The venue was not so nice and I won't go there again. VIP was ok, food and bathroom wise but it didn't compensate for the tremendously long walk to and from the venue to my car with minimal lighting at the end of the day. AND there weren't any signs in the lots so I was looking for my car far too long. Not a nice way to end the evening and like I said, I'll never step foot on Randall's Isl again.

Farm Aid 2007 (Rolling Stone Review)

http://www.rollingstone.com/rockdaily/index.php/2007/09/10/farm-aid-2007-da ve-matthews-john-mellencamp-neil-young-and-willie-nelson-bring-diverse-line up-loads-of-covers-to-nyc/
http://stillisstillmoving.com/?p=2330

After twenty-two years of throwing Farm Aid benefits in theheartland of America, the concert hit the largest city in the countrylast night. Held on Randalls Island in New York City, Farm Aid boastedone of the most diverse bills of the year — with acts ranging fromcountry to reggae to rock and even to polka. Held for the first timeoutside of an ampitheater or sports complex, the venue's gigantic fieldfreed the organizers from the constraint of pre-existing concessionstands and let them bring in row upon row of organic food grown fromfamily farms. "Get some of the organic corn dogs," Dave Matthews saidin the middle of his acoustic set with Tim Reynolds. "I already hadfive."

The Allman Brothers — whose set was the by far the longest of theevening — were unquestionably the hardest-working men at the show.Allman guitarist Derek Trucks played an fiery set with his own band,while his fellow ax-man Warren Haynes did a well-received acoustic set.Greg Allman played a sloppy/slurry acoustic rendition of "MidnightRider" with Willie Nelson before being joined by Dave Matthews andHaynes for a slow version of "Melissa." Trucks also sat in for a bit ofJohn Mellencamp's set, as did his wife Susan Tedeschi, who brought thehouse down a stellar "Little Pink Houses."

Many of the musical highlights of the evening were cover songs.Warren Haynes dug out the 1971 Elton John super-obscurity "IndianSunset" — a tale of an Indian driven from his land that was highlyappropriate for the evening. He followed it up with a moving cover U2's"One." Matthews and Reynolds nailed Daniel Lanois' 2005 track "StillWater" and Neil and Pegi Young dueted on a note-perfect version of Ianand Sylvia's "Four String Winds." The only cover that fell flat was theCounting Crows' take on "Thunder Road," which they decided to mash-upwith "Rain King." Neither song benefited from the bizarre treatment.Stranger still was polka king Jimmy Sturr, whose brief set consisted ofBobby Darin's Splish Splash and the Charlie Daniels Band staple "TheDevil Went Down To Georgia." I guess you can polka-fy anything, butit's often not a good idea.

As is custom, the four musical members of the Farm Aid board (DaveMatthews, John Mellencamp, Neil Young and Willie Nelson) closed out thenight. Matthews, who was the biggest draw of the night judging by the crowd's reaction, played a hits-heavy set that included "Crush" and"Gravedigger." Mellencamp followed up with a masterful set that included the Farm Aid anthem "Scarecrow," as well as "Small Town" and"Paper In Fire." His band has been stripped down (no more fiddleplayer) and has rarely sounded tighter. "Our Country" was performed solo acoustic and nearly managed to redeem itself.

Neil Young, as usual, completely walked away with the show. Joinedonly by his wife Pegi on acoustic guitar and pedal steel guitarist BenKeith, Young did an eight song set of hits ("Heart of Gold"),obscurities ("Human Highway") and Farm Aid staples ("Homegrown"). Itwas his first set in nearly a year but he sounded like he had beenperfecting his show on the road for months. Young also debuted thefirst track from the forthcoming Chrome Dreams II, a tender ballad called "Bluebird" that sounded more like a track from Prairie Wind than the lost 1976 album Chrome Dreams.Before launching into "Homegrown," Young slyly said the song "used tobe about one thing now it's about another." Translation: the song was written about the glory of growing your own marijuana, but it's now about the glory of organic food grown on family farms. Willie Nelson —who who knows a thing or two about both subjects — sat in on guitar.Both he and Young beamed from ear to ear as they tried to in vain to get the crowd to sing "Homegrown, it's a good thing, plant that belland make it ring."

Where are my flip flops and khaki cargo shorts...typical "Dave" college frat boy music. It's not bad but nothing spectacular or I nothing I have not heard before from his style of music. Herky Jerky Whirly Twirly.
