review by Craig rollin to the bottom Leavitt

well i knew the set list, and the place was crawling
with country-clubbers, but...it was a great goddamn

Carry On- rocked out

Southern Man- rocked out harder....Neil busts nut on guitar

Pre-Road Downs- an unexpectedly great version of this 
               song...Stephen really wailed on guitar,
            found some big, crazy beautiful notes that
            filled up the arena and made you think of 
            the old days....

49 Reasons-  Hell yeah!  love this song.  I was so    
  happy when Stills started playing it solo & w/CSN
  a couple years ago, but it didn't sound      
  exactly right....until Neil came to town.       
  Speaking of WAILING, why didn't anybody comment       
  earlier on how Neil's playing really takes this       
  one to the next level?  a highlight for me.

Faith in Me- this, as well as several other new songs,
           really came off much better live than on
 the             album.  the crowd actually paid
 attention             to all the new songs

Dream For Him- quite lame compared to the studio      
    version.  for some reason they slowed it          
     down, took Stills off guitar and put him on      
     bass.  Neil got off some sweet bluesy riffs      
     but overall this lacked the great feel of        
         the original

Almost Cut My Hair- S&Y were in the midst of
  delivering        a major ass-kicking to the crowd
   when Croz         FORGOT THE LAST VERSE and let the
    song just               sort of crash.....at first i
     couldn't tell if it       was a sloppy false ending or
      what.....somebody          must have told him the words
       because they started         up again and finished the
        song....still fun but        not what it could have

Cinnamon Girl- kind of sounded like shit.  only 2     
       guitars, Steve and Neil, which sounded         
         cool, but the rhythm section tried to get too
           fancy on this one.  they need a stomping   
        lesson from the Horse

Long Time Gone-  i dislike Croz's emphasis on
  political           and psuedo-political tunes on this
  tour, but           i must say this sounded great. 
  Neil got his           rocks off in a big way.

FWIW- the "restored" version, with Neil's lead guitar 
   part. killer.  i had forgotten what it sounded like
    w/ Neil, so used to hearing it as a CSN or Stills 
   solo tune

Down by the River- sweet but way too short.  the      
  shortest version i've ever heard live electric in    
fact. it usuallly gets a third solo, only 2 last      
night.  seemed like Neil cut off Stills as he       
tried to get a 3rd instrumental passage going

Love the One You're With- so-so, not really
appropriate        for the end of this show i thought.
 Neil looked        goofy singing his doo-doo-doo's

RITFW- rocked pretty heavy but again too short.       
     Stillsy put on the slide to play the flying V at 
    the end

btw, I enjoyed Neil busting Nash about his plug for
the BS box set.  Neil said "that was a commercial,
an advertisement!" like it was a dirty word.
Nash nodded.  "A shameless plug," he confessed.

"Shit," said Neil.
