I have a dilemma regarding this. I will be taping the show, but I wanted to watch it live (I'm in WA), I have a Vast box that allows me to watch ABC from eastern states via satellite, it also has a very good quality stream of Double J, which I want to record, but I can't watch ABC NSW and record Double J at the same time. Is anyone else planning to record the double j stream?

I may be out of line, but is there anyone that can direct me to a source where I can view this broadcast from The Netherlands? I could access the stream here but it was a Sundaymorning and I was busy and hardly able to watch it: only catched a couple of minutes (the last chords of Nails in My Feet - which kind of like is my all time favourite CH song!). Found some vids of individual songs on Youtube and I know it's all probably not very legal, but if anyone can help me out I'd be very obliged. Thanks!

I've seen much of the broadcast and so far, Neil sounds exceptionally good, very little difference from the old days. I was a little critical of him in the webcast but I've heard almost none of those issues in the final encore show (exception being the shouted ending to Whispers and Moans...pretty rough). Some things, like the high notes of When You Come, he'll probably never be able to rip into with the same reckless abandon as he did when he was younger...but he can still totally pull it off, it's just a different approach now.

Anyway, just felt the need to say I'm happy to be wrong, Neil can still sing remarkably close to his young self.

I finally saw this show via YouTube. Great performance...especially by Neil and Mark Hart. Great guitar performance. Mark is quite good. The big thing that was the highlight is Neil’s guitar playing. Quite incredible. I am still confused why he plays this way, and plays quite Rockin, but doesn’t translate that in the recordings. He often said that Neil Young is one of his favorites too...I suspect for the raw guitar playing (at least big part of it) so that should be even more reason why Neil should do such a raw album focusing on guitar. I think Daniel Lanois would bring this out of him and the band.

I thought he played quite rockin and raw on Together Alone album? Do you think? Obviously Mark Hart was rocking on that album too.

Otherwise, perhaps we don't hear the his raw guitar playing on the album because of producing, mixing, engineering... or perhaps Neil doesn't think the songs on the album shouldn't get the raw guitar deal.
