Neil Young “Archives” Released

June 12, 2009

Rock legend and singer/songwriter extraordinaire, Neil Young, has released a collection of songs in the form of a career retrospective, called “Archives”. In traditional Young form, however, it’s not just a compilation of his greatest hits. From the Onion, a review:

Here’s what Neil Young Archives: 1963-72 is not: It’s not exclusively a set of rarities and live tracks. As the title implies, Young’s gone back to square one, forgetting Decade ever existed, and is now endeavoring to create the ultimate Neil Young collection, encompassing outtakes alongside the well-known versions of his best-loved songs. The first volume of Archives opens with both sides of a rare Squires single, then continues with samples of the demos Young cut when he first moved to California, followed by songs drawn from his work with Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills & Nash, and songs from his classic albums Neil Young, Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, After The Gold Rush, and Harvest.
