This is a completely enjoyable through Neil's songbook by a bunch of extremely talented artists. Both Dave Matthews and Ben Harper show what great musicians they are by largely solo acoustic performances, Keith Urban shows off his lead guitar chops (in tandem with no less a legend than John Fogerty of CCR), and CSN show that they can still harmonize beautifully. Performances by Norah Jones, Lady Antebellum, and Jason Mraz/Shawn Colvin show of the often ignored sweeter side of Neil. And Wilco's on-stage replication of the very complex studio creation Broken Arrow is just amazing.

Does Neil do all these songs better? Of course! Any major talent, from Dylan and the Beatles on down always does their own material best. But these are still very enjoyable versions that give one a different take on Neil's artistry.

Let me start by saying that there are only 2 reasons that I would ever give this 4 stars, instead of 5. 1)it was too short and 2)it's not available on CD. That being said, I just can't give it less than 5. I'm an old(er) broad who grew up listening to Neil Young's songs (a multitude of covers included) and I'm still listening to them. I've seen him (as well as several of the tribute artists) in concert, many times. If you want to rate this video on sound quality, etc. I can't argue with you because frankly, I'm no audiophile, but I am a lover of music and the artists who offered up their tributes to this amazing man, legend, icon, prolific songwriter, all did so beautifully and with heart. Yes, there were artists who weren't jumping all over the stage as they performed, but that has nothing to do with being bored or needing more rehearsal. (Well, OK... Crow and Case should have spent a bit more time in rehearsal) Artists all have their own methodolgy when it comes to performing and slow and steady is just one of those methods. The true gems for me are Dave Matthew's rendition of "Needle And The Damage Done", James Taylor's performance of "Heart of Gold", Elvis Costello's "Losing End" and the absolutely outstanding version of "Broken Arrow" by Wilco. Norah Jones, CSN, Jackson Browne and Mellencamp/Burnette knocked it out of the park too. If you're over 40 and love the music that you grew up listening to as much as I do, this is a must buy. If you're under 40 and truly appreciate the iconic talent of Neil Young, then do the same. You won't regret it.

Neil Young's songs never sounded better than through the artists who recorded his material as a tribute. Some that stand out were Dave Matthews uncanny cover of "The Needle and the Damage Done", Nora Jones in a wonderful duet of "Tell Me Why" and of course Crosby, Stills and Nash doing "Human Highway". This is a "must have" for Neil Young fans.

THe day he reviewed this DVD. Only problem I had with it was what was left off. The COMPLETE show should of been released. Maybe when the record compsnies wake up,they are a little slow, the bootleggers know what the people want they don`t, anyways Not a bad release for a taste of what went down.

This was an amazing music video. All of his greatest songs performed by the very best of artists were presented with class and total perfection. I watched it over and over and then bought his Decades CD to listen to while I'm driving. It took me right back to my Hippie Days and all the great music that we had back then.

If you are a fan of Neil Young you must add this dvd to your collection.
Seeing other musical artists like John Mellencamp, Josh Groban,Ben Harper,James Taylor perform Neil's tunes was awesome. Being a musician myself, I especially like the backing band for the evening which includes one of my favorite drummers Kenny Aronoff.
All this is presented in a package for a good cause with a mission to help help troubled musicians. Nice !

Neil Young's Music is great and to hear the songs performed by other great musicians and personalities added to the enjoyment of this DVD. Only negative was that there should have been more views of Neil and his reaction to his songs as performed by others.
