About Farm Aid: Farm Aid's mission is to build a vibrant, family farm-centered system of agriculture in America.

Farm Aid artists and board members Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews host an annual concert to raise funds to support Farm Aid's work with family farmers and to inspire people to choose family farm food. Since 1985, Farm Aid, with the support of the artists who contribute their performances each year, has raised more than $45 million to support programs that help farmers thrive, expand the reach of the Good Food Movement, take action to change the dominant system of industrial agriculture and promote food from family farms.

Oh my Neil has figured out oil rhymes with soil. I pray for something good to come from his direction in the future, but I have my doubts. His show at Farm Aid was weak in my opinion.

The new RITFW lyrics are pretty clunky, but I thought the rest of the set was powerful and Neil was firing on all cylinders. Who's Gonna Stand Up is not a great song, but I can't help but get chills when I see an old man standing alone on a stage getting the entire FA crowd to sing along with a song, a cappella, that they never heard. Standing In The Light Of Love was INTENSE. Historically Neil's Farm Aid sets have been sloppy but the last 4 or 5 have been solid.

His next greatest achievement is just around the corner. Coming soon. I'll bet my last dollar on it.

Hope that you all stuck around for Willie's set, which was both completely rooted and absolutely transcendent. As Kris says "He sings like Sinatra and plays like Segovia".

Also loved Carlene's version of Wildwood Rose, which I've listened to at least a couple hundred times. Brought tears to my eyes and a smile to my face, remembering when I would sing along to my little girl, and thinking about Carlene and Rose in the Cadillac, travelling from show to show,listening to Maybelle, Anita, Helen and June singing just for them. Sometimes when she's performing, Carlene tells really funny stories about those days and the pranks she and Rose would play on their Aunt Helen. Keep on the Sunny Side Sweety!

And yes, Mother Nature, I'm with you about Neil and what's coming next. I have lots to say about what's been going on and what's to come, but I'll save that for another day when I've found the right words.

Agree w Keith and Mother Nature

He got the crowd going on that song -- maybe not a great song but a great anthem.

Standing in the light is great.

And the new record could be greater

Mr. Henry,

"When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things..."

Farm Aid observations: Neil keeps wearing that "Earth" tee shirt; will they ever be available to the general public? I know he gave some away at his European tour.

Also, did anyone else notice when Willie sang "Whiskey for my Men" nobody seemed to chime in "Beer for my horses" when he lifted his ear. Was it a much younger crowd that they didn't no the response?

It's a different time zone and climate.

Standing In The Light Of Love & Who's Gonna Stand Up Was Great Solo Acoustic. Who's Gonna Stand Up Could Be Another Anthem Like Rockin' In The Free World.Maybe Neil Will put That Version On His New Album,Great Crowd Response At The End Like On The Freedom Album With acoustic Keep On Rockin' In The Free World Jones Beach '89 Solo Acoustic Tour. Electric Who's Gonna Stand Up At End Of New Record That's Streaming on Neil Young Times Page. It's The 7/13/14 Liverpool,England Version That Was Used In The Studio With Full Band Orchestra.
