This is the full set. The BBC is going to yank this down soon, so watch while you can.

Here is a short review from Gigwise:

6. Ryan Adams makes the perfect alternative Glastonbury-closer
Vast swathes took to either the Pyramid Stage see icons The Who or to The Other Stage to have their faces raved off by The Chemical Brothers. We fancied something a little different, so took one last emotional walk to the top of the hill.

What better way to end Glastonbury than with an emotional outro from R’Adams with the ones you love? Opening with ‘Gimme Something Good’ before giant amp stacks and arcade machines, Dr Adams played up the theatrical setting of the Park Stage and its flaming towers, with a set of heartbroken balladry and bad-ass guitar god noodling.

It was a set of relentless Glasto-friendly highlights, the most fitting being the youthful decadence of ‘To Be Young (Is To Be Sad, Is To Be High)’, the firey regret of ‘Kim’ and ‘Stay With Me’, and naturally the ever-enchanting ‘New York, New York’ and ‘Come Pick Me Up’. Sealed with the kiss of the country-prog of ‘Magnolia Mountain’ and the unexpected and heart-wrenching encore of his now classic cover of Oasis’ ‘Wonderwall’, he couldn’t have done more. It’s a shame that more didn’t see it, but to those who did, it was a set never to be forgotten. (AT)

And just in case BBC does take it down, here is an official clip (only one song):
