    Neil Young isn't as interesting in long songs as he thinks he is.
    Really?

    Down by the River, Ramada Inn, Last Trip to Tulsa, Ambulance Blues, Change Your Mind, Love and Only Love, Love to Burn, Cowgirl in the Sand, Like a Hurricane, Cortez the Killer, Walk Like a Giant, Ordinary People, Crime in the City... the list goes on.

    Yes, there are some that aren’t as good as these, but I think Neil definitely has more good long songs than bad ones.

    True. I had psychadelic pill too much on my mind.

    Eh, maybe Le Noise is a classic too. 

    Le Noise is great, never heard anything else quite like it. 

    Thought Psychedelic Pill was a great album, and I also really enjoyed Peace Trail. it's strangely quirky and Jim Keltner does a fantastic job on drums as always.
    I love Le Noise. I agree that it may be his last real classic album, but there’s a lot Psychedelic Pill to love too. Ramada Inn is one of my favourite songs from the last decade
    I wish I'd picked up Le Noise when in was new at $25 U.S. instead of 8 million dollars or whatever it goes for used!  At the time, I thought it was too much for one album.  Little did I know!

    I wished I would pick up Paradox for 19 dollars.... I don't think it would be a Le Noise situation with that one, but I do find it rather soothing.

    Hey, camel camel camel just emailed me this morning that Paradox dropped to $21. 

    Part of of me wants to jump on that. The other part of me tells me to wait to see if it goes lower.

    I've listened to the soundtrack on Spotify and I dig having it on. But I hated the movie...

    I JUMP ON IT IF YOU DO!

    Don't want to be in another situation where my nrother has a Dreamin' Man vinyl bough for 20 dollars and I have no one. And now it costs used one million dollars.

    My other brother has a ragged glory vinyl he bough for 7 dollars.

    good point. waiting for $2 cheaper is nothing compared to having to buy it for $20 more.

    My dad turned 65 and as a last minute-gift I wrapped my unopened Live at Tuscaloosa record.

    So there it was sitting wrapped while we were all eating cake. And my dad turns to me and says "So I listened to that new live album with Neil, and... he doesn't sound good at all. I think it's really bad. I'm happy I listened to it on Spotify and didn't buy it"

    Haha.


    Anyways. 

    I bought:
    Paradox $19.5
    Earth 23$
    Piece trail $20.5 (not a fan of it, but what the hell...)
    And a new Tuscaloosa for myself.

    What did A Treasure cost when it was first released? The vinyl and/or the bluray thing?

    Not sure the cost when it first came out, I managed to get a sealed LP from a store in Chicago a few months back for around $40 USD.

    Amazon is amazing. My local record stores have horrible selections and one of them charges twice the price for used that I can get for new on Amazon. 
    Peace,Love and Pearl Jam.

    Sucks that you don't have a good record shop.  Do what you must.

    I like independent record stores for a number of reasons. I have found some amazing records while browsing record stores that I might not have run across otherwise.  I've met some really cool real live in-person people while record shopping and have had great conversations about music in shops.  I like supporting independent merchants.  I do buy an occasional record on-line that is hard to find in a shop but I will never spend a dime on Amazon because it's owners have made it their mission to close down or absorb all independent dealers.  I cannot abide by that.

    That's how I see it but it's not for me to tell other people what to do.  I'm sorry if it sounded like that was what I was doing.  It's just how I feel and how I do things myself.

    didn’t feel like you were telling people what to do at all. Just saying for some Amazon is a great place to score some vinyl at decent prices. But yes. If your lucky to have a great local record store, spend your money there and spread the word. 
    Peace,Love and Pearl Jam.

    The vinyl version of 'A Treasure' was $49.98 from Neil's web store when it first came out.

    There was a box set version of the Bluenote Cafe vinyl that was $88 in Neil’s store. The standard 4LP set is $60 now.
    I can’t remember what the difference was, if any.

    Hmm.... feel kind of stupid to have the Fillmore East show on vinyl and one of the acoustic earlier ones... But not the 80s ones with the unique bands and unique setlists.

    Maybe I should try to fool my dad into selling me his Blue note cafe-record.

    Any chance there will be reissues of his archive live albums?

    There hasn't been any mention of them being rereleased. I guess having everything available in hi-def on the Archives site - and working on all of the other releases they have lined up - could mean it won't happen

    I like how they did the tix for the Indy show.  The pre-sale is still open to fan club members only....looks like about 70% of tix have been sold.
    Venue seats 2500.  Should be a hell of a show.

    So the re-release of the Dead Man Soundtrack on his site is not part of the NYA series? 

    His fucking Archive-project is more confusing and contains more paradoxes than the Terminator movie timeline!

    Fucking shit.

    i wished I had been a tad more interested when he started this and just decided that like Pearl Jam I will at least buy all the live releases (with me already owning some of the studio releases on vinyl).

    But I guess being picky and just pick up the ones I really want... works too... but that made me diss Dreamin' Man because it was a compilation. Bla bla.

    Grr.
