Neil Young – Updated

Neil Percival Young (born November 12, 1945) is a Canadian-American singer-songwriter, musician, and activist. After embarking on a music career in the 1960s, he moved to Los Angeles, joining Buffalo Springfield with Stephen Stills, Richie Furay and others. Since his early solo albums and those with his backing band Crazy Horse, Young has been prolific, recording a steady stream of studio and live albums.

Young has received several Grammy and Juno Awards. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducted him twice: in 1995 as a solo artist and in 1997 as a member of Buffalo Springfield. In 2000, Rolling Stone named Young the 34th greatest rock ‘n roll artist. His guitar work, deeply personal lyrics and signature tenor singing voice define his long career. He also plays piano and harmonica on many albums, which frequently combine folk, rock, country and other musical styles. His often distorted electric guitar playing, especially with Crazy Horse, earned him the nickname “Godfather of Grunge” and led to his 1995 album Mirror Ball with Pearl Jam. More recently he has been backed by Promise of the Real. His 21 albums and singles have been certified Gold and Platinum in U.S by RIAA certification.

Young directed (or co-directed) films using the pseudonym Bernard Shakey, including Journey Through the Past (1973), Rust Never Sleeps (1979), Human Highway (1982), Greendale (2003), and CSNY/Déjà Vu (2008). He also contributed to the soundtracks of the films Philadelphia (1993) and Dead Man (1995).


Neil Young – Young Shakespeare (1971) (2021) [16-44] & [24-192]

Young Shakespeare is a live album and concert film from American-Canadian folk rock musician Neil Young recorded in 1971. Recorded three days after Live at Massey Hall 1971, during the Journey Through the Past Solo Tour.

Just two months after the release of his seminal After the Gold Rush, Neil Young sat down for a performance at The Shakespeare Theater on January 22, 1971. The Stratford, CT show captures the artist stripped down to the bare essentials – acoustic guitar, piano, and harmonica.

The concert was recorded for presentation on German TV later that year but was not publicly available until now. The original 50 year-old analog tapes have been lovingly restored, making available early acoustic recordings of two After the Gold Rush songs, early Harvest tunes, and beloved favorites such as “Ohio,” “Cowgirl in the Sand,” “Helpless,” “Down by the River,” and “Sugar Mountain.”

Young wrote on NYA that Young Shakespeare is, “a more calm performance, without the celebratory atmosphere of Massey Hall, captured live on 16mm. Young Shakespeare is a very special event. To my fans, I say this is the best ever…one of the most pure-sounding acoustic performances we have in the Archive.”

Neil Young & Crazy Horse – Way Down In The Rust Bucket (2021) Remastered [16-44] & [24-192]

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is cover-9-1024x1024.jpg

Way Down in the Rust Bucket is a new Neil Young and Crazy Horse live album issued under Young’s long-running ‘Performance Series’ banner.
This album documents a 13 November 1990 show at The Catalyst, a small bar in Santa Cruz, California where Neil Young occasionally performed. The band played three sets, including tracks from the newly released Ragged Glory as well as the live debut of Zuma‘s ‘Dangerbird’. The show is being released as a 4LP package, a two-CD edition and a box set which includes both of those formats and a DVD of the show, which was filmed and recorded by Shakey Picture’s LA Johnson. The DVD includes a bonus track, ‘Cowgirl in the Sand’. It’s believed there were technical issues with the original audio. The CD edition offers alternate cover art.

Way Down in The Rust Bucket is number 11.5 in Neil Young’s Performance Series (it sits between Bluenote Cafe and Dreamin’ Man Live ’92).

Neil Young – Archives Vol. II (1972-1976) (2021) [16-44] & [24-192]

Archives Volume II: 1972-1976, to give it its full title, contains 131 tracks, including 12 songs that have never been released in any form, and 49 new unreleased versions of Young’s classics – studio and live recordings, both solo and with Crazy Horse (Odeon Budokan), The Stray Gators (Tuscaloosa), the Santa Monica Flyers (Roxy: Tonight’s the Night Live), Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, and The Stills Young Band.

Neil Young Archives Volume II: 1972-1976 is a 10-CD box set from American-Canadian folk rock musician Neil Young. The release is the second box set in his Neil Young Archives series, following 2009’s The Archives Vol. 1 1963–1972, and covers a three-and-a-half-year period from 1972-1976. The track list was officially announced on the Neil Young Archives site on September 20, 2020, with the first single, “Come Along and Say You Will”, being posted to the site as the Song of the Day on October 14. The set then went up for pre-order on October 16, 2020 as an exclusive release to his online store, with only 3,000 copies being initially made available worldwide. After selling out the following day, Young announced that a second edition was being planned. This was followed by the release of a second single, “Homefires”, on October 21, and a third, an alternate version of “Powderfinger”, on November 3.

Of the 131 tracks on the track listing, 63 are previously unreleased. These include live and alternate versions of previously released songs. Twelve of the songs on this set have never been released in any form.

Neil Young – Homegrown (2020) [24-96]

Recorded between June 1974 and January 1975, Homegrown was intended to come out in 1975 before Neil cancelled the release. The album has remained unreleased until now, achieving a legendary status among Neil Young fans in the process.

The album is made up of twelve Neil Young songs, of which seven are previously unreleased – “Separate Ways,” “Try,” “Mexico,” “Kansas,” We Don’t Smoke It No More,” “Vacancy” and “Florida” (a spoken word narration). Also included are the first recordings of “Love Is A Rose,” “Homegrown,” “White Line, “Little Wing,” and “Star Of Bethlehem” – different versions of which would all later appear on other Neil Young albums.

Neil plays solo on some tracks (guitar, piano and harmonica), and is joined by a band of friends on other tracks, including Levon Helm, Ben Keith, Karl T Himmel, Tim Drummond, Emmylou Harris and Robbie Robertson. When describing the album, Neil himself of course puts it best: “This album is the unheard bridge between Harvest and Comes a Time”.

Recorded in analog, and mastered from the original master tapes, this long-lost album is a wonderful addition to Neil’s incomparable catalog.

  2. Try 2:47

Some sources place the album’s release date on January 22, 1969, while other sources have the release date as Young’s 23rd birthday, November 12, 1968. It was then partially remixed and re-released in November 1969, but at no time has the album ever charted on the Billboard 200.

Neil Young – Hawks & Doves (1980) [16-44]

Hawks & Doves is the tenth studio album by Canadian folk rock musician Neil Young, released in October 1980.

Hawks & Doves’s two sides were recorded in different circumstances, side one being culled from sessions dating from approximately 1974 through 1977, and side two from sessions set in early 1980 specifically for the album. It is also one of Young’s shortest albums, its running time just under half an hour.

Side one includes “Little Wing” and “The Old Homestead”, which were originally intended to be released as part of 1975’s Homegrown.

Side two consists of the recordings intended for the album, being the straightest country and western songs Young had penned to date, even more so than those found on American Stars ‘N Bars or Comes a Time.

Track Listing:

  1. Little Wing 2:10
  2. Old Homestead 7:38
  3. Lost In Space 4:13
  4. Captain Kennedy 2:50

Neil Young – Archives Vol. 1 (1963-1972) (2009) Remastered [16-44] & [24-192]

By Request: Any project in the works for two decades is bound to generate its fair share of myths and so it is with Neil Young’s Archives, a series of a multi-disc box sets chronicling Young’s history. Originally envisioned in the late ’80s as a Decade II, the project quickly mutated into a monster covering every little corner of Neil’s career. With its escalation came delays, so many that it sometimes seemed that the project never really existed; it was just a shared fantasy between Neil and his faithful. During that long, long wait, fans held tight to the idea that Archives was a clearinghouse of rarities similar to Bob Dylan’s The Bootleg Series, a treasure trove of unreleased songs and epochal live performances that would trump whatever bootleggers had to offer. While rare and unheard music is certainly a key part of Archives, particularly on the first disc covering the pre-history of 1963-1965, viewing this project as merely a CD box set is wildly misleading. Neil Young has designed Archives as nothing less than an immersive multimedia autobiography, an interactive experience where the music, text, video, and pictures feed off each other, creating a virtual journey through Neil’s past.

Because this is a biography, Archives, Vol. 1 winds up relying very heavily on previously released recordings, containing almost all of Neil Young, Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, After the Gold Rush, and Harvest, key Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young cuts, and the previously released archival live albums Live at the Fillmore East 1970 and Live at Massey Hall 1971. Such a large chunk of familiar material is bound to disappoint any listener expecting Archives to be a rarities-only set, forgetting that its origin was as a sequel to Decade, the triple-LP set that mixed up hits with unreleased tunes. Archives follows a similar blueprint, excavating many rare gems – some, like “Bad Fog of Loneliness” quite familiar to bootleggers; some, like an extraordinary “Dance Dance Dance” cut with Graham Nash, not – and placing them neatly alongside his well-known jewels, so the end effect isn’t a rush of discovery but ongoing quiet revelation, an impression underpinned by the set’s leisurely pace.

Neil Young – Sugar Mountain Live At Canterbury House (1968) (2016) Remaster [24-192]

Sugar Mountain: Live at Canterbury House 1968the third installment from Neil Young’s Archives – although through some weird filing system this is Vol. 00, possibly because this dates before either of the previously released volumes in Archives Performance Series – culls highlights from Neil Young’s two shows at Canterbury House in Ann Arbor, MI on November 9 and 10, 1968. Like its two predecessors in the Archives series , the concerts captured on Sugar Mountain are legendary among Neil Young collectors, in this case because of the gentle, tentative version of the title track that showed up on Decade – prior to this, the only official release from the concert. At first glance, Sugar Mountain might seem similar to Live at Massey Hall 1971, as they’re both solo acoustic sets, but the tenor of the two shows is quite different. Massey Hall captured Neil in full flight, just before the release of Harvest, whereas the concerts on Sugar Mountain were just a month or two shy of the release of his first solo album. He had hits with Buffalo Springfield – much of the set list leans heavily on Springfield songs, such as “Mr. Soul,” “Expecting to Fly,” “Birds,” “Nowadays Clancy Can’t Even Sing,” and “Broken Arrow “- but he had yet to prove himself as a solo artist, so the endearing tentative quality of his performances shouldn’t come as a surprise, and yet it does: Young’s reputation as a steely renegade often suggests that he never second- guesses his moves. Neil doesn’t second-guess here but he is fragile and human, telling stories (sometimes at considerable length) before sliding into these delicate songs, wryly lamenting that he should have some happy songs to sing before testing out the melody for “Winterlong,” stopping short because the song isn’t quite written yet. It’s a marvelously intimate performance, unguarded and open-hearted, unique in its delicate touch: it’s Neil Young before the myth crystallized, and listening to it anew, it’s easy to fall in love with him all over again.

Neil Young – After The Gold Rush (1970) (2014) Remaster [24-192]

After the Gold Rush is the third studio album by Canadian musician Neil Young, released in September 1970 on Reprise Records. It is one of four high-profile albums released by each member of folk rock collective Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young in the wake of their chart-topping 1970 album Déjà Vu. Gold Rush consists mainly of country folk music, along with the rocking “Southern Man”, inspired by the Dean Stockwell-Herb Bermann screenplay After the Gold Rush.

After the Gold Rush peaked at number eight on the Billboard Top Pop Albums chart; the two singles taken from the album, “Only Love Can Break Your Heart” and “When You Dance I Can Really Love”, made it to number 33 and number 93 respectively on the Billboard Hot 100. Despite a mixed initial reaction, it has since appeared on a number of “greatest albums” lists.

Release Date: September 19, 1970

It featured the London Symphony Orchestra on two tracks and vocals by noted guests David Crosby, Graham Nash, Linda Ronstadt, Stephen Stills, and James Taylor. It topped the Billboard 200 album chart for two weeks, and spawned two hit singles, “Old Man”, which peaked at No. 31 on the Billboard Hot 100, and “Heart of Gold”, which reached No. 1.

Neil Young – Harvest Moon (1992) [24-48]

Harvest Moon is the 19th studio album by Canadian musician Neil Young, released on November 2, 1992. Many of its backing musicians also appeared on Young’s 1972 album Harvest.

Recovering from a case of tinnitus that had come about after the recording of Ragged Glory (1990) and its subsequent tour (which produced the 1991 albums Weld and Arc), Young returned to the studio with Ben Keith, picking up the acoustic guitar, piano and banjo that had dominated albums such as Harvest, Comes a Time and Old Ways. 1970s-era analogue equipment was used instead of digital recording to achieve a “warmer” feel.

The subsequent 1992 tour was recorded and ultimately released on the 2009 Dreamin’ Man live album, containing Young’s solo renditions of all Harvest Moon tracks in a different order.

Release Date: November 2, 1992

Track Listing:

  1. Unknown Legend 4:32
  2. From Hank to Hendrix 5:12

The 2020 Harvest Moon will reach its peak at 10.05pm BST on Thursday, 1 October, but will continue to appear full through to Saturday morning. It gets its name for being the closest full moon to the autumn equinox, which was traditionally around harvest time in the northern hemisphere.

Neil Young – After The Gold Rush (50th Anniversary) (2020) [16-44] & [24-192]

Neil Young and Reprise Records are pleased to announce the 50th Anniversary Edition of Young’s classic record After the Gold Rush. Originally released September 19, 1970, After the Gold Rush is cemented in the annals of music history – the album has often been rightly recognized as one of the finest ever made. The collection combined Young’s poetic lyricism and wistful melodies, driven by both dreamy folk arrangements and ferocious rock ‘n’ roll, and in the decades has been certified double platinum in both the US and the UK.

The 50th Anniversary Edition box set features a variant of the artwork, originally created by Neil’s long-time art director Gary Burden, made in collaboration with Grammy Award-winning artist Jenice Heo. The set also includes a 7 ”single in a picture sleeve with two versions of album outtake“ Wonderin ‘. ” Side A, originally included in The Archives Vol. 1: 1963-1972, was recorded in Topanga, California, in March 1970, and Side B is a previously unreleased version recorded at Sunset Sound in Hollywood in August 1969. A litho print of the album’s front cover is exclusively included in this vinyl box set. The CD format of the 50th Anniversary Edition includes the new artwork and both versions of “Wonderin ‘.”

The timelessness and influence of After the Gold Rush is difficult to overstate. From the iconic LP cover – a solarized image by photographer Joel Bernstein of Young walking in New York against a brick backdrop – to the long-running legacies of songs like the incendiary “Southern Man” and the melancholy “Only Love Can Break Your Heart, ”The album has felt vital in each of the five decades since its release. In fact, its title track, with Young’s time-traveling and apocalyptic visions of California, places it firmly in the here and now. Young’s re-working of the song’s lyrics for live performances over the years casts that fact in a chilling clarity: “Look at Mother Nature on the run in the 21st century.” This 50th Anniversary Edition is both a celebration for longtime fans, and a chance for new ears to take in its continued relevance.

Neil Young – Are You Passionate? (2002) (2021) Remastered [24-192]

Are You Passionate? is the 24th studio album by Canadian / American musician Neil Young, the only album to feature Booker T. & the M.G.’s, and his eighth with Crazy Horse, released on April 9, 2002 as a double LP and as a single CD. It represents Young’s foray into soul music, not sounding like anything he had previously released. Exceptions are rocker “Goin’ Home”, recorded with Crazy Horse, and the brooding “Let’s Roll”, a response to the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
The album ends with “She’s a Healer”, an extended jam.

Neil Young – Hitchhiker (1976) (2017) Remaster [24-192]

Hitchhiker is a studio album by Canadian / American singer-songwriter Neil Young, issued September 8, 2017 on Reprise Records. It is the ninth release in Young’s ongoing archival release series and the first of the Special Release series.

Co-produced by Young and David Briggs with post-production from John Hanlon, the album was originally recorded on August 11, 1976 at Indigo Ranch Recording Studio in Malibu, California.[1] Young intended to release the album shortly after it was recorded, but executives at Reprise felt that it “wasn’t a real record, but a collection of demos,” with the musician saying that he “was advised to record the songs with a band.”

Eight of the ten songs found on Hitchhiker were released on various Neil Young studio albums over the next three decades, though mostly as versions from different live or studio recordings. Three songs from the session (“Captain Kennedy”, “Pocahontas” and “Campaigner”) were released in nearly the same form as they are found on Hitchhiker. Two of the songs (“Hawaii” and “Give Me Strength”) were previously unreleased in any form prior to this album.

Released August 11, 1976

Neil Young – American Stars ‘N Bars (1977) (2016) Remaster [24-88]

Neil Young made a point of listing the recording dates of the songs on American Stars’ n Bars; the dates even appeared on the LP labels. They revealed that the songs had been cut at four different sessions dating back to 1974. But even without such documentation, it would have been easy to tell that the album was a stylistic hodgepodge, its first side consisting of country-tinged material featuring steel guitar and fiddle, plus backup vocals from Linda Ronstadt and the then-unknown Nicolette Larson, while the four songs on the second side varied from acoustic solo numbers like “Will to Love” to raging rockers such as “Like a Hurricane.” Just as apparent was the album’s unevenness: side one consisted of lightweight compositions, while side two had more ambitious ones, with “Will to Love,” for example, extending the romantic metaphor of a salmon swimming upstream across seven minutes. The album’s saving grace was “Like a Hurricane,” one of Young’s classic hard rock songs and guitar workouts, and a perennial concert favorite. Without it, American Stars’ n Bars would have been one of Young’s least memorable albums, and since it turned up the following year on the compilation Decade, the LP was rendered inessential.

  1. The Old Country Waltz 3:00
  2. Saddle Up The Palomino 3:01

Neil Young – Comes A Time (1978) (2014) Remaster [24-192]

Comes a Time is the ninth studio album by Canadian singer-songwriter Neil Young, released in October 1978. “Comes a Time” is also the title song and a single release from the album.

The album originally started out as a solo record, but when Young played it for Reprise executives they asked him if he would consider adding rhythm tracks to what he already had. Young agreed, and the end product was Comes a Time. Two songs (“Look Out For My Love” and “Lotta Love”) were backed by Crazy Horse.

“Human Highway” was written several years prior to the album’s release, and originally presented to Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young in 1974 for a proposed studio album by the group which never came to be. Much of the album features harmony vocals from Nicolette Larson. She also shares lead vocals with Young on “Motorcycle Mama”.

For many years it was rumoured that Young had personally purchased some 200,000 vinyl copies of Comes a Time having been unhappy with the album’s sound, owing to damage that occurred to the master tape during shipment to the mixing facility. The version of the album most widely available today was personally remixed by Young from the safety copy of the original master. In a March 2014 interview with Rolling Stone, Young claimed that he, in fact, used the 200,000 LPs as shingles for a barn roof.

Neil Young – This Note’s For You (1988) (2019) Remaster [24-96]

This Note’s for You is the 16th studio album by Canadian / American musician Neil Young, released April 11, 1988 on Reprise. It was originally credited to “Young and the Bluenotes.” Part of the album’s concept centered on the commercialism of rock and roll, and tours in particular. (The title selection, specifically, is a hostile social commentary on concert sponsorship.) The music is marked by the use of a horn section. It also marked Young’s return to the recently reactivated Reprise Records after a rocky tenure with Geffen Records.

In 2015, Young released a live album from the album’s accompanying tour, which he titled Bluenote Café.

The album was originally attributed to Neil Young and the “Bluenotes”. But after musician Harold Melvin took legal action against Young over use of the Bluenotes name, it became credited as a Young solo album.

Neil Young – Prairie Wind (2005) Remaster [24-96]

Prairie Wind is the 26th studio album by Canadian / American musician Neil Young, released on September 27, 2005. After dalliances with 1960s soul music (Are You Passionate) and rock opera (Greendale, which spawned a Young-directed film of the same name), Prairie Wind featured an acoustic-based sound reminiscent of his earlier commercially successful albums Harvest and Harvest Moon. The album was in part inspired by the illness and recent death of his father, Canadian sportswriter and novelist Scott Young, and the album is dedicated in part to the elder Young.

Young recorded the album in Nashville before undergoing minimally invasive surgery for an aneurysm in the spring of 2005, and some of the songs on the album appear to be informed by Young confronting his own mortality.

A premiere live performance of Prairie Wind was held in 18 – 19 August 2005 at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. Here, Young held a two-night concert where songs from the album were performed. These concerts became the subject of a film directed by Jonathan Demme entitled Heart of Gold.

Young debuted the album’s closing track, “When God Made Me”, at the Live 8 concert in Barrie, Ontario, Canada.

Neil Young – Living With War (2006) (2016) Remaster [24-96]

In a move that deliberately echoes the rush release of “Ohio” in the wake of the Kent State shootings, Neil Young bashed out his 2006 protest record Living with War in a matter of days, sometimes recording songs the day they were written, and then seized the opportunities of the digital age by streaming the entire album on his website only weeks after it was recorded, with the official digital and CD releases trailing several days later. It’s the best use yet of the instant, widespread distribution that the Web has to offer, and it also hearkens back to the days when folk music was topical, turning the news into song. But if the ballads of the 19th century were passed along gradually, growing along the way, or if the protest tunes of the folk revival of the 1950s and ’60s grew in stature being performed regularly, gaining strength as singer after singer sang them, Living with War captures a specific moment in time: early 2006, when George W. Bush’s approval ratings slipped to the low 30s, as discontent sowed by the Iraq War, Hurricane Katrina, rising gas prices, and much more turned into a general malaise in the country (or in political shorthand, it was the moment when George W. turned into Jimmy Carter). To some, the specificity of Young’s writing on Living with War will forever date it, but that’s a risk with any topical folk, rock, or pop, from “We Shall Overcome” to “We Are the World” – or “Ohio, “for that matter. Young is aware of this and embraces the allegedly short shelf life of his songs for Living with War by directly addressing the political turmoil in the USA in 2006 and the real human wreckage it has left behind. As such, it will function as a vivid document of its era, as much as any journalism of its time, but Living with War isn’t rock-as-CNN: it’s a work of art, and it’s a canny one at that, with Young drawing on familiar words and music to create both historic and emotional context for his songs. It’s not merely clever that “Living with War” quotes “The Star Spangled Banner,” or that “Flags of Freedom” consciously reworks Dylan’s “Chimes of Freedom” – it helps tie Young’s work to the past and gives his new work greater resonance … And nowhere is that more true than on “Let’s Impeach the President” and how its melody recalls “The City of New Orleans” to help underscore what was lost in the government ‘ s bungled reaction to Katrina’s devastation to the legendary American city. With a grandstanding title like that, along with its George W. soundbites, “Let’s Impeach the President” is the flashiest song here, and it crystallizes what’s good about the album: sure, it pulls no punches and it’s angry, but it’s not just ranting; it’s artfully written and effective, as is Living with War as a whole. It’s not perfect, but it has a vitality lacking in Young’s recorded work of the last 15 years or so, and its blend of Greendale’s loud, meandering guitar rock and the bittersweet mournful, aging hippie vibe of Prairie Wind is not only appealing, it’s better executed than either of those good yet flawed records – and that execution not only applies to the ragged glory of the recording, but to the songs themselves. They manage to be unified in a way that Young wanted Greendale to be but didn’t quite pull off, yet they also stand on their own and are, overall, more memorable than those on Prairie Wind. And that’s the reason why, politics aside, Living with War stands as a very strong, effective Neil Young album that will continue to have a punch long after the George W. Bush administration has faded into the history books.

Neil Young – Storytone (2014) Deluxe Edition Remaster [24-192]

Storytone is the 34th studio album by Canadian musician Neil Young, released on November 4, 2014 on Reprise Records. The album was released in two formats: a single disc, which features orchestral and big band arrangements of the songs, and a deluxe edition which includes stripped-back recordings of the songs. Young subsequently released a third version of the album, Mixed Pages of Storytone, merging elements of both, later in the year.

Writing on his official website, Young detailed the recording of the two versions of Storytone: “First, I recorded the songs at Capitol Records with my old friends Niko Bolas and Al Schmitt. I sang them alone with only the instruments I desired to use. There was no over dubbing or enhancing. The resulting music is from my heart, directly to you. Then, I entered the hallowed MGM sound stage where The Wizard of Oz soundtrack was recorded. Surrounded by the finest musicians in Hollywood, with arrangements and orchestrations by Christ Walden and Michael Bearden, I sang seven of the Storytone songs live for the second time. I sang into Barbra Streisand’s microphone, a perfectly cared-for antique with a wonderful tone that I loved. I also went to Sunset Boulevard to record the remaining three songs with a big band in an old Hollywood studio rebuilt and now known as East West. All the performances are live with no added effects or recording. I just stood singing into the microphone with occasional harmonica notes blown in between verses, while the musicians played.”

Neil Young – Songs For Judy (Live) (2018) Remaster [24-176]

The album features 22 previously-unheard live acoustic performances from various shows during his 1976 tour in November such as “Heart of Gold”, “Sugar Mountain”, “Too Far Gone” and a never-released-before song, “No One Seems to Know “. The track list can be found at the bottom of the article.

Curated by rock music journalist, Cameron Crowe and concert photographer, Joel Bernstein, who were both working with Young during his 1976 solo tour. Crowe reminisced that the shows were both reckless and beautiful.

“The evenings began with an hour-long acoustic solo set from Neil. The acoustic portion of the evening morphed nightly, often fueled by a smoke or two just behind the curtain. After a break, Neil and Crazy Horse would return for a barn- burner of an electric set designed to level the place. They succeeded nightly, “Crowe adds.

Bernstein recorded all the performances on cassette tape, initially meant for personal enjoyment. He says he was “raiding malls for whatever blank C-90 cassettes he could find along the way.”

“The US leg of this tour was brief (18 shows in 12 cities, in 24 days), but the performances were at their best intense and thrilling. As the tour continued, the cache of cassette-tape grew, all of them filled with gems. “

Crowe said that it was a “deliriously painstaking work” to listen and compile the good tracks. “Wake up, eat breakfast, dive back into the recordings. Decide which of the 12 versions of ‘Old Laughing Lady’ was most essential. Repeat.”

Neil Young – Dead Man (2019) Score Remaster [24-44]

Dead Man is the soundtrack to the 1995 Jim Jarmusch western-themed film of the same name starring Gary Farmer, and Johnny Depp as William Blake. Neil Young recorded the soundtrack by improvising (mostly on his electric guitar, with some acoustic guitar, piano and organ) as he watched the newly edited film alone in a recording studio. The soundtrack album consists of seven instrumental tracks by Young, with dialog excerpts from the film and Johnny Depp reading the poetry of William Blake interspersed between the music. The version of the main theme used over the film’s beginning and end credits is not included, but was released as a promo single. The soundtrack differs from the film in that it uses background noises of a driving car while the whole plot is set in the 19th century (before cars were invented).

Neil Young – Tuscaloosa Live (2019) Remaster [24-96]

Tuscaloosa is an 11-track live album from Neil Young and The Stray Gators, recorded at the University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa on February 5th 1973. The Stray Gators backed Neil occasionally in the ’70’s and are Tim Drummond, Kenny Buttrey, Jack Nitzsche and Ben Keith. The album was produced by Neil Young and Elliot Mazer and mixed by John Hanlon. It is mastered by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman from the original analogue tapes.

Tuscaloosa features live versions of songs from Neil’s debut albums (track 1), plus classic songs from two of his biggest selling albums: After The Goldrush and Harvest. The album also features the title track from the live album Time Fades Away that would be released later in 1973, and songs from Neil’s classic album Tonight’s The Night that would not be released until 1975.

“It’s from the period right around Harvest and Tonight’s the Night,” Young told Rolling Stone. “For me, it’s edgy. It’s like those mellow songs with an edge. It’s really trippy to be down in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and singing those songs from Harvest and the songs that we were doing for Time Fades Away before it came out. I found this thing and it had such a great attitude to it. I just loved the whole night, so I put that together with [engineer] John Hanlon.

Neil Young – The Times (The Fireside Sessions) (2020) [16-44]

The Fireside Sessions is a series of concerts that Young streamed online for fans to provide some solace during the COVID-19 pandemic. This EP was made available only via Young’s site and Amazon Music HD for maximum audio quality.

Album of the Year characterizes critical consensus for The Times as a 73 out of 100 with three reviews. Writing for NME, Leonie Cooper gave the album four out of five stars, citing its relevance to ongoing Black Lives Matter protests and in opposition to the Donald Trump 2020 presidential campaign using Young’s music. Vish Khanna of Exclaim! agrees that the music is timeless, which is why he finds it depressing, considering the political climate. His review gives The Times eight out of 10 for being “stark and haunting”. The editorial staff of JamBase named it a new album highlight. Writing for AllMusic Guide, Stephen Thomas Erlewine, writing that the album is “designed to stir memories of past activism” and “it feels almost more nostalgic than modern”, noting that “Young’s voice quivers slightly and by supporting himself with just a guitar, he seems slightly fragile, a quality that gives these simple, straightforward covers a subtle new dimension.” The editorial staff of the site gave it three out of five stars. Writing for Pitchfork Media, Jesse Jarnow gave the EP a 6.9 out of 10, praising the “lo-fi but distinctly modern starkness that stands in contrast to Young’s longstanding fixation on sound quality and love of vintage (and expensive) analog gear” and Young’s “commitment to righteousness” but noting that the protest songs, “neither hit particularly hard as music”. Rolling Stone included this release as one of the 18 picks for the month of September 2020.

Neil Young – The Saddle Rack, San Jose, CA (1984) Early Show (2021) SBD Archives [16-44]

The Neil Young Archives is a longtime project by singer-songwriter Neil Young. It started as a series of archival releases featuring previously released as well as unreleased studio and live recordings. It eventually developed into a website featuring almost the whole of Young’s recording output throughout his career, available for streaming in high resolution audio format. The project has been long in the making – work began in the late 1980s. Throughout its development, Young himself has made several statements about the material included, release dates, and marketing that have proven false as the project was modified for new multimedia formats and expanded upon to accommodate new releases or other relevant material. Young has said that there will be five volumes covering approximately 50 years.

The archives are divided into several series. The main series consists of several volumes of box sets, each covering a separate period of the artist’s career. The Performance Series consists of individual releases of live material, each representing a specific show or tour. Finally, there is the Special Release Series, which consists of previously unreleased albums. These different series also overlap; for example, two volumes of the Performance Series that are included on the each of the first two Archives box set releases are also available separately. Homegrown is also included in its entirety on Neil Young Archives Volume II: 1972-1976 but was also released on its own earlier in 2020.

As of 2019, Neil Young has launched a subscription website and application where all of his music is available to stream in high resolution audio. The Neil Young Archives also include his newspaper, The Times-Contrarian; The Hearse Theater, which shows limited runs of concert films and rare footage; and photos and memorabilia throughout his career.

Neil Young – Carnegie Hall 1970 (2021) Early Show [24-192] Archives Series

The long-running Neil Young Archives Series has featured a number of lines: an Official Release Series, a Performance Series, and a Special Release Series among them. Shakey Pictures Records and Reprise Records recently announced a new addition to the Archives: the Neil Young Official Bootleg Series. It will launch on Friday, October 1 with Carnegie Hall 1970, featuring Young’s debut performance at the venerable venue on December 4, 1970 (the early show). Carnegie Hall 1970 will arrive on double vinyl, double CD, and digital formats (including high resolution), with the promise of five more Bootleg titles coming in 2022.

The performance was captured on analog multitrack tape and mixed for this release by Young and Niko Bolas. It was the first of two shows that evening; the second began at midnight on the morning of December 5. The midnight show has been bootlegged numerous times over the years, but the “lost” early show is considered by Young to be the stronger of the two. Carnegie Hall 1970 is the latest 1970 concert to be released under the Archives banner following Live at the Fillmore East (March, with Crazy Horse) and Live at the Cellar Door (November 30-December 2, just prior to the New York stand).

It features a fabulous, and generous, setlist with stripped-down versions of songs like ‘Down By the River’, ‘Helpless’, ‘Sugar Mountain’ plus the title track from the at the time only-just-issued After the Goldrush. ‘Bad Fog of Loneliness’, ‘Old Man” and “See the Sky About to Rain” hadn’t been released at all, at the time of this concert.

Neil Young & Crazy Horse – Great Woods, Mansfield, MA (1987) (2021) SBD Archives [16-44]

After a few weeks of silence, a new concert is added to the list of already numerous unreleased streams offered by the official site : Neil Young & Crazy Horse – Great Woods Center for the Performing Arts, Mansfield, Massachusetts – August 29, 1987.

This is an unusual evening, indeed a very particular tour: it documents the transition period between Crazy Horse (veterans of the semi-electronic labors of Life and the previous Garage Tour tour in 1986) and the Bluenotes (lineup that will accompany Young from November of that year).
In these concerts, in fact, the new rhythm ‘n’ blues style compositions peep out that will lead Young to decide to download the Horse in favor of a new band with a completely different sound. A colorful lineup like few others, in which the live debut of “Ain’t It The Truth” stands out, the unreleased acoustic “Last Of His Kind”, the new and sparkling “This Note’s For You” (played twice! ), “Don’t Take Your Love Away From Me” and “Welcome To The Big Room”, the previously unreleased “Someday”, and some taste of the most recent repertoire (“Mideast Vacation” and “Long Walk Home”). All seasoned with different electric and acoustic classicons for a total of two and a half hours of show.

Neil Young – One Night At The Canterbury House (1969) (2021) SBD Archives [24-96] / [16-44]

Neil Young @ Canterbury House 1969: “Timeline Concerts of the Week”

The “Timeline Concert of the Week” feature is now available to members at the Rust & Patron tier level members with streams of live concerts from Neil Young’s entire career. “Rust” subscribers can also exchange memories and stories with other subscribers. Some concerts are already accessible via the timeline, more will be added over time. Subscribers can send inquiries and express requests.

David Siglin, who managed the Ark Coffeehouse in Ann Arbor for decades, said the Ramblin’ Jack Elliott show at the Canterbury House was among the best live performances he ever saw (or something to that effect). Neil Young played three sets that night in 1969 and here is the song list from Sugar Mountain.

To be clear this is the 2nd appearance but fourth day at the Canterbury House in 1969.
In 1968 he played three nights and then came back in 1969 to play three sets in one night.

Country Girl from the 1st set contains additional verses from Down Down Down that were not included on the Déjà Vu version. Per Ghosts On The Road, Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere contains an unpublished verse and the second Country Girl contains alternate lyrics. The 1956 Bubblegum Disaster > It’s My Time is just fragments of each song.

Canterbury House had seating for a little over 200 people for each set

  • These 3 sets have been released as an NYA timeline performance.

Neil Young – Landing On Water (1986) Remastered (2022) [24-192]

A big, bombastic synth-rock album by Neil Young? Linn drums? Synth bass? Coming, as it did, immediately after Young settled out of court with a record company that had sued him for making non-commercial records, LANDING ON WATER could easily be seen as not only the oddest of Young’s mid-’80s streak of oddball records, but also as a big joke, the punch line being, “Here’s your commercial album, Mr. Geffen. Have fun selling it.” Or maybe he actually means it: “Hippie Dream,” whose chorus goes, “The wooden ships/Were just a hippie dream,” puts a bullet through the memory of his old folkie buddies Crosby, Stills & Nash. And while “Pressure” does a pretty good imitation of Billy Joel’s synth-rock hit “Pressure,” it’s followed by “Drifter,” which manages to put a bullet through the much more recent memory of David Geffen (“Don’t try to tell me what I gotta do to fit”) while effectively updating an ON THE BEACH-ish blues structure for the electronic age. In short it is, despite all appearances, a Neil Young album, and it foreshadows the giant rebirth that was about to come.

Backed only by co-producer Danny Kortchmar on guitar and Steve Jordan on drums, with all three playing synthesizers, Neil Young turns in an album that attempts to mix the raunchy rock thrust of his Crazy Horse-style music with contemporary trends in pop, especially the tendency to turn the drums way up in the mix. It’s an uneasy combination in which Jordan’s forceful drumming dominates the tracks, with Young’s vocals nearly buried. But that only means that the production has ruined a group of songs few of which were any good anyway. The only one that offers the promise of being one of Young’s better efforts is “Hippie Dream,” a sober criticism of what became of ’60s idealism in general and Young’s erstwhile bandmate David Crosby in particular. But if Landing on Water was not a good album, at least it seemed to point Young away from the stylistic dabbling of his last three albums and back toward the kind of rock he did best, and at least some of his fans returned as a result, giving him a slight uptick in sales.

Recorded Aug. 1983 until März 1986 at Broken Arrow Ranch, Woodside, CA and Record One, Los Angeles. Produced by Neil Young & Danny Kortchmar

Neil Young – Citizen Kane Jr. Blues 1974 (2022) Remastered [24-192]

Citizen Kane Jr. Blues (Live at The Bottom Line), recorded during a surprise set at the late, lamented New York City club on May 16, 1974, has been mastered and restored from existing bootlegs as no professional master recording exists. The show took place just a couple of months before the release in July of On the Beach and previews a number of songs from that LP (“Ambulance Blues,” “Motion Pictures,” “Revolution Blues,” and the title track) plus highlights from the discographies of CSNY (“Helpless”), Crazy Horse (“Dance, Dance, Dance”), and The Stills-Young Band (“Long May You Run,” which would be released in 1976). “Roll Another Number (For the Road)” and “Pardon My Heart” would show up on Tonight’s the Night and Zuma, respectively, in 1975. The title track was introduced as “Citizen Kane Jr. Blues” at the show but was retitled “Pushed It Over the End” when CSNY performed it on their stadium tour that summer.

    Thanks to our friend for spotting a torrent error.
    This really helps when doing a mega post (not that I shouldn’t get it right the first time… but having fun sometimes equates to missing details) ☹

    This Note’s For You upload yesterday had a bad torrent sending to somewhere else in Neil’s world.
    All fixed now and appreciate the feedback to make this right!
    Cheers & Happy Friday folks!

    1. Ozymandias

      Happy Friday indeed. A Studio LP listening day. Such to choose from, these are the version seared into my soul. And I’m working on my daughters’ souls, they seem to get AmBeauty. I’m preparing them for the time I’m no longer here. The torch must be passed. The mystical, metaphysical torch to light their way once they “get it.” They will hear me say that hunter is the heart and soul of it all. That will light their way, or at least explain my path. They are sharp, and will take it all in, in time..

      OP, pardon me for wandering away from Neil. I’m filled with the spirit this beautiful morning! Ripple!

  9. JerryRocks

    Is there an audio release of Journey Through the Past since the 1972 album version? Wasn’t it in the archives as an added bonus? Does anyone have audio of the album or the archive version?
