Neil Young & Crazy Horse - Rust Never Sleeps DVD

I found this DVD along with the Alice Cooper DVD for under $10 each at Border's Books, so these are in the bargain bins! Go searching!
This DVD is a great concert film! It simply shows a gig from start to finish, but since Neil was being a little theatrical on this tour, it is all interesting. The oversized "equipment" on stage and the cast of characters - most notably the "Road-eyes" - give plenty of visual stimulation, while the song list is practically a greatest hits package, although lacking in his biggest hit, "Heart Of Gold".
But you get plenty of other acoustic tunes, from "Sugar Mountain" to "The Needle and the Damage Done" with lots in between.
Crazy Horse joins Neil for superb versions of "Cinnamon Girl", "The Loner", "Cortez the Killer", "Like a Hurricane", "Hey Hey, My My" and a bonus track of "Tonight's the Night".
I saw Neil a year or so ago and he was still amazing, but this is a very cool document of his younger days and shows how well he can perform by himself and with CH.
Pick this up if you see it!
