Our Favorite Bridge School Benefit Memory: R.E.M. & Neil Young on "Country Feedback" - 1998
R.E.M. & Neil Young on "Country Feedback" from Bridge School Benefit in 1998.
This performance is -- without a doubt -- one of R.E.M's finest of one their most loved songs.
Which -- naturally -- would also make this one of our favorite tracks on the Bridge School Concert 25th Anniversary package set.
Also, one of our all time favorite Bridge moments occurs at about ~1:10. Watch it and feel the sheer awe of Michael Stipe as he takes in the moment.
Neil Young's acoustic rhythm on the song is just so simply stunning in his most achingly acoustic, hauntingly-beautiful-spook-in-the-muse transcendence.
The DVD playing through the ol' hi-fi stereo at "11" is well... in the parlance of our times... just freakin' awesome.
