    Perhaps, but I don't think that really changes anything. Not at his age.

    Wow..... Anyone else find this a little unsettling? Seems like he's kind of cleaning house in preparation for the inevitable/lightening his load ... I actually really admire people who do that. It's just that it also makes me think about what they're ultimately preparing for, and it makes me sad.
    Depressing to think about.

    I agree, there's something quite sad about it in some ways. He has said that it's time for other people to enjoy these things though, so maybe it is just a cathartic clean out.

    It would have been so cool to see these in a Neil museum though...

    Could be a divorce thing. But after the dropping out of the RnRHOF thing, as well as how weird he was on that Hitchhiker stream, it does give me pause. Especially after Bowie being sick and an insane few knowing.  Neil is a pretty private guy. 




    Read a pretty good theory at Thrashers positing the free Archives on Dec. 1 will probably only be Vol. 1. Makes sense actually. The original Vol. 1 is OOP. He wants to remind people about the depth of the set and then hook people in for a sub for Vol. 2 or the remainder dropping next year. Or 5.

    Self titled (1969). I have never understood why Neil Youngs solo debut is so overlooked and rarely brought up when discussing Young. It's a masterpiece. Soaked in mood and atmosphere and with a blanket of sadness. Not a song on the album that doesn&#39;t stand out.

    Yeah, this is definitely a bit unsettling to me.  It could be related to his divorce (did he end up keeping his ranch in the hills above Redwood City, CA?  I never heard either way.)  But I'm more concerned it may be due to failing health or poor money management. 

    Or maybe it's just the reality that scaling back is something most of us have to (or really ought to) do when we get older.  We're starting to do a little of that ourselves in my home.

    Ed had to feel good about writing the two best songs of the mirrorball sessions.  Long Road and I Got Id. 
  • Flipping through that catalogue, I wish I've had the cash to buy my dad one of the guitars. Haha. 

    How does those kind of auctions work? Are they live or more like eBay?

    And I agree it feels uneasy, with him selling stuff off. But maybe he's leaving/have left the ranch?

    Neil doesn't live at the ranch anymore.  Pegi lives there now.
    Maybe there isn't room for all that stuff along with the rest of his things and all of Daryl Hannah's things at the home they now share.
    I look forward to seeing Neil on tour in 2018.  This year was the first calendar year in which I didn't see Neil perform live since 1998.

    Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere (1969). First album with Crazy Horse. And a much rawer and less polished sound than the solo debut. I would argue It's the quentisential Neil Young album, featuring staples (and amazing songs) like Cinnamon Girl, Down by the river and the title track Everybody knows this is nowhere.

    After the Goldrush (1970). After the Goldrush is one of the iconic albums in history. Three albums in a row from Neil without one weak song. Even the quirky Cripple Creek Ferry is magic.

    Harvest (1972). One of the most beautiful sounding albums ever recorded. I adore it and the cover is the most gorgeous album cover ever designed.

  • On the Beach (1974). Wonderfully stripped down and crude. A typical Neil Young-contrast coming off of Harvest. Remember A-Camp doing a lovely cover of the title track, But don't know If it can be found online. Standouts: See the sky about to rain, On the beach, Motion Pictures, Ambulance Blues.

    Picked up the Harvest Moon reissue this morning. It's a double vinyl issue, with the tracks split across 3 sides.
    Side 4 is an etching of the album cover.



    Sounds pretty sweet so far!
