    Picked up a few more replacement Neil records to fill in some gaps in my collection:

    I've always liked Trans, it's a very misunderstood record. Everybody's Rockin is a harmless bit of fun, but I fully accept that Landing On Water is pretty awful! :)

    Those were the three Neil Young records, together with Life and Reactor that you always found when looking for used vinyl. Seems a lot of people (in Sweden atleast) bought and didn't want to keep those.
    Really like Trans and Reactor though.

    Trans is cool! A few cuts don't hold up so well but mostly great and the really good stuff is terrific!

    Unbelievably, I still don't have the Shocking Pinks LP. 36 Neil albums but no Shocking Pink!

    Recently repurchased Landing on Water because I had to hear "Hippie Dream" again!

    I hope Neil is ok... and I hope he is recording a classic album on his hiatus... I also expect to see a massive CSNY tour in the next few years...

    and hopefully Farm Aid is near the east coast again this year

    I haven't heard much about the Old Man lately. Any idea what he's up to?

    What makes you expect him playing with Crosby ever again?

    I hope he's focusing on Archives volume 2. And thinking about a Mirrorball 2

    Yeah, a CSNY reunion is unlikely although you never know with these guys. First it was Crosby slamming Young for dating Hannah. Then came Crosby's apology to Young and Hannah. Then it was Nash saying "I don't want anything to do with Crosby..." The it was Crosby tearing into Young again, this time over comment Young made about Trump using his music. Then it was Nash saying Crosby “ripped the heart out of CSNY. He’s been awful for me the last two years, just fucking awful. I’ve been there and saved his fucking ass for 45 years, and he treated me like shit.” Meanwhile, Stills just keeps plugging along, probably trying to ignore all the hype and B.S.

    They should get together and do a cover of the Ramones' "We're a Happy Family".

    Fantastic! A really great collection of Neil's first 10 years. Definitely recommended for those who don't have it. Hopefully it will have the same cool gatefold layout

    I read somewhere the RSD release of "Decade" will be limited to 5,000 copies. I already have a fine copy so will save my dollars for something new but Neil fans, you'll want to grab this one. Highly recommended!

    I just want him to reissue Mirrorball. I don't see a Mirrorball 2 ever happening.

    Me neither.

    My 3 year old had his first experience of Record Store Day today :)

    I missed out on the PJ 7" but I'm super happy to get my hands on the Decade remaster! My original copy is still thousands of miles away in the UK so it's very nice to have a new copy here. The RSD issue is limited to 5000 - it will be spinning later on tonight for sure.

    Also grabbed the box set of A Letter Home that I've had my eye on for a while

    Don't see the point on a re-issue trying to sell itself by being limited (only 5000 copies and in the original packaing is hilarious). Saw it here in Sweden too, was expansive. Alot of content ofc.

    But got the original, so I'm fine.

    Nice A Letter Home box. But, not an album I really listen to.

    Thanks goldrush!

    LOL, yeah one of these days I'll add that to my other 36 Neil LP's, which for completists is a relatively small Neil vinyl collection!

    Nice RSD additions to yours, by the way!

    Edit: I should file this one under the "You know you're getting old when..." thread. I had already replied to your comment a while back Goldrush! I had scrambled brains for breakfast this morning along with my coffee, waffles and blueberries. :lol:

    Ha ha, no worries Brian!
    I'm pretty pleased with the 2 new additions. Decade has the tri-gatefold layout (with record 2's sleeve inside record 1's), and 2 cool Henry Diltz photographs. A Letter Home has 2 LPs, 7x clear vinyl 7"s, the CD and a DVD, as well as a really cool book.

    I've also got one more 'replacement' on the way that I'm very excited about. I'll post a pic when it gets here...

    I would think Neil still has the word on that.

    I wonder what a reissue would go for? Looks like used, near mints start at around $35 to $40, US. If pressed on 2 LP's like the original, probably at least that much.

    Just found out Jonathan Demme (who passed today) shot Neil Young playing with Crazy Horse in 1996 on 35mm film with the guy who shot Silence of the Lambs and Sixth Sense etc. Would love to see that.

    Just found out Jonathan Demme (who passed today) shot Neil Young playing with Crazy Horse in 1996 on 35mm film with the guy who shot Silence of the Lambs and Sixth Sense etc. Would love to see that.

    It was called "The Complex Sessions", and it was 4 songs from the Sleeps With Angels record. It was only released on VHS, I've got a copy in a storage box somewhere. The audio tracks were included on a bootleg called "TV EP and Best of The Unreleased" (which includes a fantastic version of Interstate, by the way)



    It's never come out on DVD but the videos are all on YouTube:
