Neil Young - Cardinal Stadium 1995 (Limited 2 x Vinyl LP)
The Classic 10th anniversary Farm Aid set from Neil Young.
The anniversary concert was held at the Cardinal Stadium in Louisville, KY with Neil Young returning as headliner, as he has done almost every year since it began. The period prior to the concert had been a busy time for Neil Young. He and Crazy Horse had produced the sombre Sleeps With Angels in 1994, dedicated to Kurt Cobain, who had committed suicide earlier that year. This was followed in June 1995 by Young’s collaboration with Pearl Jam, Mirror Ball, and in ‘95 too, Young was also recording the instrumental soundtrack for Jim Jarmusch’s black and white western Dead Man, which saw general release on 10th May 1996. Young performed most of the Cardinal Stadium concert with minimal backing, accompanied only by Willie Nelson on guitar and Mickey Raphael on harmonica, and played a set that included numbers from across the man’s career, although with emphasis on his 1970s output. Crazy Horse joined him for the two-track encore however, providing a full scale rock-out on which to complete proceedings for another year.
