Notes : See Change played twice
Tour : 2008 European Summer Tour
Band :

Chad Cromwell - drums
Pegi Young - background vocals, vibraphone, piano, guitar
Anthony Crawford - background vocals, piano, guitar, bells

Sí, no se ha equivocado. See Change ha sido tocada dos veces. Ya sabes como es el Tío Neil, si a él se le antoja... Y esa noche, con luna prácticamente llena, estaba de buen humor.
También regaló al público de esa noche un tema nuevo. ¡No! no te asustes, relativamente nuevo. Ha sido el "Wrecking Ball" de 1995. Nuevo en este Tour. Si te apetece escucharlo (en versión mp3), lo tienes en la web de Johnny "The Song Dog".

Aunque yo te recomiendo mejor una versión sin pérdida, precisamente The Dutch Master acaba de colgar su propia grabación en Dime A Dozen (diferente a la de Uli de ayer), y ya sabe que los trabajos de Dutch tienen calidad:
Artist: Neil Young & His Electric Band
Date: 2008 - 08 - 15
Venue: Theatre de plein air / Parc Expo Colmar
City: Colmar (FR)

Lineage: Edirol R-09 + Sound Professionals SP-CMC-8 microphones
Card reader > Harddisk editing with Soundforge 4.5 + plugins and using the Sonic Maximizer Process > SEKD Red Roaster

Editing: removal of some clapping next to me and an overall volume boost. (with extra boost on the acoustic songs)
Recording & editing: Young Dutch Master
Recorded in front of stage just left of the centre. (stage sound )
Sound is excellent. (so is the recording!)
The sound at my position was far from good. On some songs there is not a good balance between vocals and music.
XP also made a recording taking the sound from the left hand speaker stack. His recording will be available in a few weeks time as he left after the shows for his holidays.
Artwork is included
Starting as a show with a far from exciting setlist; almost 'a best of...'.
All this changed with Neil at the Grand piano playing Wrecking Ball. Certainly one of the highlights of the evening.
My personal favourite of the evening is the song I have been waiting for, for years: the Electric version of Cowgirl In The Sand!
Neil in a good mood: It was a full moon evening.

I've noticed recently that my recordings including the artwork are sold on the internet, therefor:
MY RECORDINGS ARE MADE BY A FAN FOR FANS. DO NOT SELL DUTCH MASTERS. ECORDINGS
DO NOT BUY DUTCH MASTER RECORDINGS. TRADE FREELY. DO NOT CONVERT THEM TO MP3 FORMAT. DO NOT UPLOAD ON OTHER TORRENT SITES WITHOUT PERMISSION FROM THE DUTCH MASTERS

As the show reached over 2 hours 15 minutes I decided to make a split over the CDs between Unknown Legend and Wrecking Ball.

ENJOY!
