Last weekend was the 3 day Bospop Festival in Weert, Netherlands with a killer line-up.
Here's a fast run through.

Friday July 11nd
Opening band Ryan Bingham and the Dead Horses is a recent discovery of mine and i really like their current release "Mescalito". Damn fine country rock with a whiskey soaked voice (Tom Waits meets Steve Earle). Played all my favorite songs from "mescalito" and a bunch of songs that may originate from his debut or his new album in the works. Cd was produced by Marc Ford who also plays lots of guitar parts on the cd. Touring band is without Marc but they were everything but disappointing.Some songs really flourished in a live setting. Next band was "Everest". Accept for streaming a few of the songs of their recent debut i'm not familiar with this band but i liked them too but unfortunally it was raining cats and dogs during their 60 minute show. Next were "The Waterboys". They surprised by not playing "Whole Of The Moon" and by playing many up tempo songs that really rocked. So they didn't play save. But lot's of rain. Fortunally the rain stopped in time for the main event: Neil Young. He played a 120 minutes set with lots of grungy rockers and a sweet accoustic set in the middle. He currently plays a surprise rarity every show.
Last week "Time Fades Away" suddenly resurfaced in Oberhausen, Germany; after 30 years! Last friday it was a full band electric "For The Turnstiles". The rough and grungy Beatles encore was cool to. "Needles And The Damage Done" gave me goosebumps (as always). Although i love Crazy Horse i was happy to see him with yet another backing band. Saw him twice with Crazy Horse, once with Booker T. and the MG's and once with Pearl Jam minus Eddie Vedder.

Here's Neil's setlist (the length of various songs are an indication that Old Black was put to the test again ):

01 Powderfinger 07:12
02 Mr Soul 05:39
03 Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere 04:45
04 I've Been Waiting For You 04:13
05 For The Turnstiles 04:12
06 Down By The River 16:40
07 Oh, Lonesome Me 04:51
08 Mother Earth0 06:29
09 Needle And The Damage Done 03:13
10 Unknown Legend 05:02
11 Heart Of Gold 03:14
12 Old Man 03:58
13 Get Back To The Country 03:08
14 Words 15:50
15 No Hidden Path 27:37
16 A Day In The Life (Encore) 07:58

Looks like an awesome fest and great line-up! Been reading the Europen reviews on Dickie and loving all the positive feedback.

There are currently 5 different sources of this Bospop Festival performance avialable for losless downloads on such sites as Dime A Dozen and the Traders Den.

Also The Waterboys performance and Ryan Bingham are avialable.

So far not much surfaced of day 2 and 3. I really hope someone taped DB&GS.

Here's a link to tons of photo's of the festival. Websites are in Dutch language but easy to navigate (since most links have the name of the bands or the dates).

Dickey's setlist was:

Statesboro Blues
Ain't Nothing You Can Do
Blue Sky
In Memory Of Elisabeth Reed
No One To Run With Anymore
Encore: Ramblin' Man

Well sometimes you can build up too high expectations and a dissapointment is around the corner. But not today. No trainwreck. Band in great shape and Dickey apparantly in a good mood. I love this line-up. Many of my friends who were not so familiar with DB&GS and were wondering if all my rants about Dickey's guitar playing had any substance said that they now can understand why this was to be the highlight of this festival for me.
Now some of them even want to join me for coming saturday's show in Bonn, Germany.

Although 60 minutes is way to short i knew it was gonna happen. I was scared even that limited time was getting cut short due to equipment failure or whatever. But sound was great. Dickey said he was used to play at least twice as long.

Dana Fuchs and her guitarplayer from NYC (performed earlier that day) were watching the show from the stage. Hoped she would join Dickey on stage for a song ("Stormy Monday" for instance) but is was not to be. Probably to the limited time of the gig
(60 minutes). SB was a bit "stiff" but they smoked during the rest of the show.
Elisabeth Reed almost brought me to tears of joy. Band was great. Duane Betts is really growing and his lead on IMOIR was spot on. Audience really liked the show.
I also had a hope / fantasy that Dickey would jam with Little Feat who played the next and final performance on this stage but that didn't happen either. But still i was a happy man and nothin' couldn't wipe the smile from my face for the rest of the night.

I would pay some damn good money if I were guaranteed to hear a Neil Young setlist like that!!!! WOW. I haven't seen Young in many, many years (70's). It didn't exactly inspire me to go when a co-worker of mine went with her husband to a 2003 Neil Young show and came back the next day depressed and dissapointed. They had been treated to a rendition of the entire "Greendale" record , a concept album about a family on a farm in a town named Greendale. Neil did play a few hits at the end. She said she'd probably never go see Neil Young again. In other words, you don't know what to expect when you go see Neil, but I guess really, like Dylan, that's part of his attraction. But look on amazon.com, they don't even carry "Greendale".
