did you tube any song?

I remember watching that on PBS and noticing the sad difference in psychology comparing a trio of women to a trio of men. The women supported each other and played "together" also taking turns at the lead.
The trio of men (Neil Young, Eric Clapton, and ???)(I think those are the correct men)each stomped around in their own little circle like wolves marking territory. There was no interplay or sharing. They were playing the same song, but they weren't playing "together".
Shawn Colvin, Rosanne Cash, and Mary Chapin Carpenter turned up quite a bit at shows 20 years back. I saw some combination of the three several times at the Bottom Line in NYC, usually at a songwriters' show called, 'In Their Own Words.' Good chemistry among the three performers, hardly boring, but to each their own.
@Don - tend to agree with your observation. Though I have seen Richard Thompson on several occasions pick up a guitar and support bands as diverse as Crowded House to Dave Alvin and be content to play in the background.
I saw their show last Thursday in Portland. The most intimate show I have ever seen. Like being in their living room. I expected the excellent music, what was not expected was the candid insights into their lives and relationship with one another. It was a show like no other. The show being acoustic without band support probably helped to distill it even further.
It's too bad the tour is so short, but perhaps after they get some other obligations taken care of they can pick it up again. Highly recommended.
