Video Spotlight - "Down By The River"- Neil Young feat. Bruce Springsteen




There's not much to say about this video.  It's Bruce Springsteen and Neil Young, what more do you need to know?  It's my favorite Neil Young song, and when searching for cool versions of this on YouTube, I found this version.  It's from Young's solo acoustic tour in 1989, and Bruce really didn't add too much to the song except for the fact that it added Bruce Springsteen to an already great song.  It seemed to be the only night that the song was played on the tour, and obviously the only night Bruce played along with him.  Strangely, this show was from Jones Beach, on Long Island, New York, when the previous week Young was in New Jersey for two nights.  But as my great, great grandfather always said..."Bruce in Long Island instead of Jersey is always better than no Bruce at all."
