For some reason, Neil Young decided that his 2000 tour was particularly hot, so he decided to record a live album and rush release it by the end of the year. So, that explains the appearance of Road Rock, Vol. 1, an eight-song collection recorded with an ensemble featuring Spooner Oldham on keyboards, Duck Dunn on bass, Jim Keltner on drums, and Astrid and Pegi Young on vocals - thereby explaining the "Friends & Relatives" subtitle. This band is pretty good, even supple, but this doesn't feel necessary at any time and suffers from indulgence.

Neil Young's 2000 summer tour brought forth Road Rock, Vol. 1, a live album recorded on September 19 and 20 at the Red Rocks concert venue in Denver. The eight-song set features one previously unreleased track "Fool for Your Love"; other highlights include an 18-minute version of "Cowgirl in the Sand" and a duet with the Pretenders' Chrissie Hynde on Bob Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower. The Pretenders served as opening act for several of the dates on Young's Music in Head tour.

Road Rock Vol. 1 (with friends and relatives). Released: December 5, 2000. Neil Young has included material recorded live on many of his albums; listed here are albums consisting completely or primarily of live concert recordings. Time Fades Away consists of previously unreleased material. Weld and Arc were initially released as a single package, Arc-Weld.

Giving Neil Young a subtle rhythm section is like giving a gorilla a Palm Pilot. On his 273rd live album, naturally titled Road Rock, V. 1, his all-star band includes bassist Duck Dunn and drummer Jim Keltner, and so what does he do? He forces them to keep up with his own patented electric thud-stomp, and the result is one of his sloppiest live albums ever. But since Neil Young is Neil Young, throwaways like this are a Zen spiritual exercise, a way of keeping his aging hippie bones loose and limber.

Neil Young With Crazy Horse - Americana (Album). Neil Young - Road Rock (Friends & Relatives) (Album). Reprise Records, Orpheus Music (3).

Neil Young Format: DVD Audio. Road Rock, Vol. 1 (Live). I'm a diehard Neil Young fan, owning nearly everything he has ever recorded but the idea of yet another live album -- with a bunch of "friends and relatives" -- didn't appeal to be at the time.
