(Leading up to the June 2nd release of the first volume of Neil Young’s long awaited Archives project, AD is posting a series Neil related posts.) Those keeping track the past couple of weeks will note this is the second cover I’ve featured culled from Neil Young’s 1992 Harvest Moon album (noticing a trend here?).  […]

Released in 1989 (wow, a whole twenty years ago) The Bridge – A Tribute To Neil Young boasts an impressive array of artists representing a wide swath of the, then, contemporary “alternative” music scene.  The set is culled from a fairly diverse pool of left of center talent including, but not limited to, Nick Cave, […]

As promised, here are the re-posted Chrome Dreams companion tracks from 2007. The following live & unreleased studio MP3s are a companion piece, of sorts, to the unreleased Chrome Dreams acetate bootleg posted here last week.

According to the new issue of Rolling Stone, at long last, the first volume from Neil Young’s vast archives have a firm release date. Looks pretty outstanding, but I am curious if the format (DVD and Blu-Ray only), and the price point, will curb fans enthusiasm. Excerpt below. After more than 20 years, the first […]
