review by Daniel Downtown Lee

As most of you know, the Sunday night Boston gig (which I missed) had some pleasant surprises: the debuts of Helpless and Suite: Judy Blue Eyes, and the return of the now sometimes sporadic Down By The River. After reading the reviews, I couldn't help but have high expectations for this show. Sadly (for me), the set list was cut by one song (bringing it down to about 3 hours and 5 or 10 minutes). And the absence of both Helpless and DBTR were particularly tough for me to swallow. Despite these disapointments, I can't go so far as to say that I was DISAPOINTED by the show: I still walked out of the Fleet Center with a huge smile on my face. I guess that says a lot about the quality of the show.

This was one of those nights during which the concert was less of a Neil show and more of a CSNY effort. Not that Neil was particularly down -- it's more that the other three seemed particularly UP. The most heartwarming, reoccuring theme of the night for me: every time one of the four played one of their songs that went over particularly well with the crowd, the others seemed genuinely happy and proud for the songwriter. It was particularly evident for Crosby with Almost Cut My Hair, for Stills with Suite: Judy Blue Eyes, and for Nash with Our House and Teach Your Children. As for Neil, pretty much everything he played sparked the audience. 'Nuff said.

Some particular highlights from the first set:
