Young’s next foray into the world of the soundtrack was an even scrappier affair. He provided the incidental music to Where The Buffalo Roam, the 1980 flick in which Bill Murray played the gun-totin’, drug-poppin’ gonzo author Hunter S. Thompson. Its soundtrack features classic tracks by Hendrix, Dylan and others but, in true gonzo spirit, Young’s seven contributions add up to less than 10 minutes of music and mainly consist of him playing creaky variations of “Home On The Range.”

Neil Young and Reprise Records are pleased to announce the 50th Anniversary Edition of Young’s classic record After the Gold Rush. Originally released September 19, 1970, After the Gold Rush is cemented in the annals of music history—the album has often been rightly recognized as one of the finest ever made. The collection combined Young’s poetic lyricism and wistful melodies, driven by both dreamy folk arrangements and ferocious rock ‘n’ roll, and in the decades since has been certified double platinum in both the U.S. and the U.K.

Time Fades Away, Live Rust, Weld, Arc, Year of the Horse, MTV Unplugged, Earth – Neil Young has always been a proponent of recording his live concerts. So, in that same vein, he has kicked things up a notch with his Archives Series, comprising of a dozen, often previously unreleased, live performances recorded throughout his extensive career. Recorded in Toronto in September 2003, Return to Greendale is taken from his Greendale tour. It includes the complete, chronological track-list of the album, and nothing else, in a nutshell! It is slightly frustrating to only hear those ten songs, as captivating as they are. Although it does make sense seeing as the Greendale project is a concept-album – a kind of musical novel which tells the story of a family confronted with murder in the small town of Greendale. The studio version of this rock music with folk, blues and country elements becomes slightly more edgy on stage – just a little – but demands the same attention and concentration as any other decent concept-album. With his loyal musicians from Crazy Horse (drummer Ralph Molina, bassist Billy Talbot and guitarist Frank “Poncho” Sampedro), Neil Young paints a moving picture of his colourful characters to convey political and ecological messages that are important to him. – Max Dembo

Neil Young’s 2003/04 Greendale tour with Crazy Horse will be chronicled on Return to Greendale, a live album and film coming out on November 6th. It will be available as a two-disc set or limited edition box set with two LPs, two CDs and a documentary, Inside Greendale, about the creation of the album.

Greendale is a rock opera about a fictional small town that is rocked by the death of a beloved police officer. Along the way, it addresses corporate greed, a scandal-obsessed media environment and Bush-era propaganda. It climaxes with one of the central figures, a teenage girl named Sun Green, heading off to Alaska to fight for the environment.

Two months before it came out, Young and Crazy Horse launched a tour of North American amphitheaters where they played all 10 songs from the album in sequence with a large cast of actors and dancers. Many fans bought tickets thinking they were seeing a traditional Neil Young and Crazy Horse concert and were none-too-thrilled with the show, even if it ended with a brief set of Crazy Horse classics.

Neil Young’s “lost album,” Homegrown, gets its debut 41 years late. Young shelved it because he “just couldn’t listen to” the heartache, which followed the collapse of his romance with actress Carrie Snodgress. Meant to fall between Harvest and Comes a Time, the 1974 time capsule fits neatly in that space. “Separate Ways” and “Try,” both featuring drums by Levon Helm, truly feel like an extension of Harvest: the former a noir-country lament and the latter an ambling plea for love lifted aloft by Emmylou Harris’ backing vocals. Throughout, train-whistle harmonica is a Greek chorus, popping up on the gorgeous and hopeless “Star of Bethlehem” (“All your dreams and your lovers won’t protect you”) and stripped-bare “Love Is a Rose”—which would be made famous in ’75 by Linda Ronstadt and here ends with urgent guitar chords like exclamation points of warning. There are moments of indulgence—you’re safe to skip any title that’s the name of a place—but also songs that stand with his best. The blistering “Vacancy” (“You poison me with that long, vacant stare”) and high-lonesome “White Line,” with Robbie Roberston, aren’t to be missed. – Shelly Ridenour

Roxy – Tonight’s The Night Live is one of the most sought-after recordings from his vast archives. This was the first public performance of many of the songs that would make up Young’s seminal album Tonight’s The Night, which would not be released until June 1975. The album’s final track “Walk On” would not appear until the release of On The Beach, in July 1974. Young would be the first artist to christen the stage at what would become one of the world’s great clubs, The Roxy Theater on the riotous Sunset Strip, right next door to the already infamous Rainbow Bar & Grille. The shows took place on September 20-22, 1973.

Neil Young will open his archive and release Hitchhiker, an unreleased new studio album. The 10-track acoustic solo album was recorded in Malibu, CA at Indigo Studio in 1976. The original session was produced by Young’s long-time studio collaborator David Briggs.

Recorded between Zuma and American Stars and Bars as a solo album in a single session, the resultant performances are truly breathtaking and passionate. The simplicity of a single voice and guitar captured here is as pure and powerful as it gets, with only Young, Briggs and actor Dean Stockwell in the room at the time of recording. A few of the songs would not appear on vinyl until years later. Some have never been heard, included in the original sessions for Neil Young and Crazy Horse’s Dume, another unreleased record of original sessions that yielded the classic album, Zuma. When the Hitchhiker album was recorded, none of the included songs had ever been released and many of the performances of the songs were the first ever.

This is truly an album of original performances.
