  • Great version of a great song. Hail John Popper and Blues Traveler! Doing Neil Young's annual Bridge School Benefit in '97. Showing that the best therapy of all is music. It knows no bounds - physical, cultural, mental, spiritual, emotional or otherwise. The joy of some of those kids is amazing. God Bless Neil and all his guests year after year raising money for this school and raising awareness.
  • Daaamnn. At first I was disappointed, like, 'Oh, it's a live version..' But it sounds great! That singer.. He ain't much of a looker, no offense, but man, can he sing... and jam on that harmonica! I love this song.
