Five new Neil Young products imminent

September 24, 2008
Like all Neil Young fans still gnashing their teeth at having missed the highly praised European tour earlier this year, I’m looking forward to a slew of new product about to hit the streets, particularly:

* The new release, the oft-bootlegged Sugar Mountain gig, due next Monday

* Don’t Be Denied, a 60-min bio-doc due on BBC Four TV in late October

* The Riverboat, another live gig, from the Archives project, due November

* the multi-disc Archives Volume One, pencilled in for November, but serially delayed.

But I’ll be avoiding the new film chronicling the Living With War tour Young completed in 2006 with CS&N.

New Neil Young album – promising

September 5, 2008
Sugar Mountain, the new Neil Young album due for UK release on 29 September, sounds promising: speculation abounds that it’ll be an official version of a long-popular live bootleg with a similar title.

Shakey sources also tell me that the long-awaited, oft-delayed Archives vol 1 is still (still!) set for release in November; we live in hope…

Recent gigs suggest that Young has finally shaken off his eco-politico concerns to focus on celebrating his great legacy. Amen.
