docbh I remember watching and taping this Farm Aid show from country music television onto a VHS cassette and then onto a maxell tape so I could listen to this down by the river with Neil Young! Birds of a Feather through Moma Dance are pretty straight forward being a TV appearance and all. About halfway through Jim Neil Young begins to saunter out onto the stage, and if memory serves me correctly, I believe he was playing a Languedoc guitar! This 19 minute Down by the River is worth obtaining this set if for nothing else. After Down by the River Willie Nelson comes out onstage and they begin a beautiful Moonlight in VT. The Willie Nelson songs were short and sweet with Nelson doing the primary vocals. The set was short and sweet but man does that Down by the River smoke. The look on Trey's face while him and Young were jamming it out said everything that needed to be said. Here i am with our band jamming with Neil Young! The recording here on the spreadsheet isn't that bad seeing how I read in the tapers notes that it was recorded from the TV as well. I had forgotten about this set and stumbled across it by accident the other night. Phish doesn't have too many guest appearances, but Willie Nelson and Neil Young are two pretty awesome ones!
