Neil Young Friends & Relatives

Road Rock Volume 1 (Reprise), Red Rocks Live (Warner-Reprise Home Video/DVD)

Highlights include a couple of Young rarities ("Bad Fog of Loneliness," "Winterlong"), some delicate Harvest Moon gems (the title song, "Unknown Legend"), a garagey "Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere" and the aforementioned "Tonight's the Night." And While Young & Co. may not be the most visually arresting group ever to hit the boards -- nobody's wearing Slipknot-style bondage masks, none of the musicians throw themselves into the mosh pit, and neither Astrid nor Pegi Young succumbs to the time-honored rock 'n' roll tradition to flash their tits -- it's still a pleasure to view people onstage who are brought together by an enduring bond, exchanging satisfied looks among themselves after a particularly emotional moment and passing that vibe along to the audience. With simple and tasteful lighting (primarily yellows, oranges and lavenders) and superb sound, it's the kind of crank-up-the-tunes and warm-yourself-by-the-fire concert document they used to make. And Young, clearly, understands something about keeping traditional values alive.
