Reviews for the Jones Beach show of Neil Young and Promise of the Real on Tuesday, July 21 have been hard to find, but here is one from The Brooklyn Vegan’s Blog.

Fellow Monsanto hater Reverend Billy and Norah Jones‘ country band Puss N Boots opened.
Andrew Sacher writes that last night’s set was filled with favorites.
He writes: “What were highlights was seeing Neil come out by himself at the start of the night to play ‘After the Gold Rush,’ ‘Heart of Gold,’ ‘Long May You Run’  ‘Old Man’ and ‘Mother Earth (Natural Anthem)’ consecutively on either piano, acoustic guitar, or organ. It wasn’t until after those five that the band even came out, and it wasn’t until even later that Neil picked up an electric guitar for the first time.
“Promise of the Real obviously aren’t Crazy Horse or anything, but they did a great job backing him. They brought a lot of energy to the show, and they basically played all the songs the way they sound on record. When they locked into the extended jams on ‘Down by the River’ and ‘Love and Only Love,’ they were on fire.
“Another treat was he gave us a good amount off one of his best ‘latter day’ albums, Harvest Moon, including the title track, ‘From Hank to Hendrix’ and  ‘Unknown Legend.’ Plus he sprinkled in even more from his most classic era, including ‘Out on the Weekend,’ ‘Words (Between The Lines of Age)’ and ‘Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere.’ Really an incredible show.”

I\'ve written some of my best songs on the move, driving on a long journey, scribbling lyrics on cigarette packets while steering. I like that style, though I tend to get pulled over a lot by traffic cops for driving erratically.
