    Yeah, we'll see... 
    He was talking about 'Toast' again last week... he's been talking about that once since at least 2008 :lol:  

    I'd love a Mirror Ball Live box set, the same as 'Return To Greendale' and 'Way Down In The Rust Bucket'.
    The Dublin live show on cd, vinyl and blu-ray/DVD would be awesome. I'll happily wait for the studio album to be included in the reissue box sets.

    Yes, I genuinely think it is worth it. Even if you’re not a big Greendale fan, Neil and Crazy Horse sound great. There’s a really great groove on this one.

    Okey. I'll pick it up. But not the deluxe box. 

    Seems to be a few Neil releases this year to pick up too...

    It's been a while since I listened to Greendale all in one go, and there probably aren't any all-time classics on there compared to other Neil records, but Return To Greendale is worth it for a really tight Horse performance.

    Yeah, this could be an expensive year if Neil releases everything he's mentioned recently. Young Shakespeare, the bootleg series, Eldorado, Ragged Glory (maybe), Mirror Ball (maybe), the next vinyl box...

    I think Be The Rain is a classic.

    I may get the box set for Young Shakespeare. I think an old acoustic show would be something I would watch.

    Bought the single back  in the day. Haha.

    Great to see Neil so busy. In fact, he seems to be busier than ever these days!

    I'd really love a "Sleeps With Angels" vinyl reissue. That's such a great album. One of his best.

    The video for ‘Dont Cry No Tears’ from Rust Bucket kinda sold me on getting the deluxe version. It looks and sounds awesome. Man is he good at parting me from my money. 
    I just realized he has an online Canadian store with free shipping (over $75) and prices in CDN $, I appreciate that.

    I would LOVE a double LP Ragged Glory release.  I have an early pressing vinyl, but they crammed way to many minutes on to one LP the first time around and a record full of music with so much power and glory comes off a bit thin due to those skinny little grooves.  Time to put the GLORY into Ragged Glory on 2 LPs!

    In today’s new batch of letters, Neil says Ragged Glory is coming out this year as an extended edition including Interstate and 3 other songs.
    Fingers crossed it’s spread out evenly over 2 LPs.

    Also, Alchemy is on the list for this year



    The outtakes that have been added will be available to buy, and Archives III is planned for next year

    Tell Me Why



    I hope this album isn't filled with Neil chatter the way Massey Hall is.  I wanted that Massey record in a big way and bought it and just hated how the music is broken up with talking.  I sold it to a friend.  I was really bummed because the music itself is marvelous.  If it were a concert film, I would be OK with that, but on a record, I can't stand a lot of talking.

    Can’t say the same, I love Neil’s awkward banter between songs, just adds to the charm for me.

    You're not alone- several others have told me the same.  That's cool.  It's just not my thing.  And the odd thing is, I don't mind it live.  I've been "attending" several of Steve Wynn/ Linda Pitmon streamed shows this last year and they both have great stories interjected between songs.  But on a record, I'm only there for the music.

    Makes sense, I can respect that, “less talk more rock” :) Welp based on the Young Shakespeare preview, I think we’re gonna get some chattin’, sorry man. But hope you can still enjoy it nonetheless, along with the other treats Neil has in store for us this year!

    Ragged Glory got another mention today - along with WELD =)  and Freedom - all planned for ORS Box #5 in August this year.

    Neil hasn’t actually confirmed Box #4 yet (Hawks & Doves, Re-ac-tor, This Note’s For You, Eldorado), but Eldorado still has a May release date so maybe there’ll be 2 vinyl boxes this year...

    Just ordered the "Way Down in the Rust Bucket" 4LP set. Super excited to receive that. It's going to be an epic listen! Neil is going to break my bank account with all this stuff he's releasing.
