Synopsis

Amazon.com
While Volume 2 of Saturday Night Live: The Musical Performances claims to draw on 25 years of history, all but one track is taken from the 1990s. The exception is Neil Young, who performed "No More" all the way back in 1989. A rundown of the rest of the tracks reads like a roster of the 1990s always-on-the-radio club. The delights on this disc are few and far between. Beck's George Harrison impression on "Nobody's Fault But My Own" is a great turn for the man associated with funky stoner grooves, but longtime fans of the show will remember George Harrison dueting with Paul Simon in the late 70s. That moment is neither here nor on Volume 1. If the companion volume strove for a bit of balance between the past and present, Volume 2 is shamelessly tailored for sales, and not as an archive. --Jason Josephes

YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDIN' ME
Cary Fabiani | Mill Valley, CA United States | 10/08/2003
(1 out of 5 stars)

"One of the greatest if not the greatest live performance I've heard or seen is not presented on this CD. That's right the greatest. I don't know or have ever really know anything about Neil Young, but his live performance of ROCKIN'IN THE FREE WORLD on SNL almost put tears to my eyes. Utterly speachless. It was'nt that it was such an emotional performance or anything, but that the fact was that this old fart would have rocked Kurt Cobain's or anyone elses young butt. Trully a powerful and insperational song.Get the DVD it's the only official release of the song."
