Subject: Archives Rumors

I have some insider info from WEA UK about the Archives... Apparently the archives have indeed been bedecked with hard to solve problems. The most interesting problem appears to be that Neil wanted to include some Squires acetate material, but the material belonged to a third party who couldn't be persuaded to part company even temporarily with the stuff. It seems this problem has been solved, and I quote "things are happening".

The other interesting thing would appear to be that the Archives WILL be released on CD.

Other lip-wetting news: there apparently are five extra tracks from the On The Beach sessions out there, although they probably won't see the light of day. But who knows?

Can't wait.

Subject: RANA covers Neil

I went to the Wetlands in NYC last night to see RANA, an exciting young four-piece band from New Jersey that frequently covers Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere.

I'd been encouraging them to do more Neil songs, and last week they said they would let me pick a song for the setlist for this show. I recommended doing something from Zuma because most of its songs fit their sound very well - and I knew one of them owned the album.

So last night, at the end of the first set, we got... Stupid Girl.

Today I picked up the local street newspaper and found a full page ad for Road Rock. First time I've seen Warner Australia advertise for Neil, which must be congratulated. However they did manage a couple of stuff ups. The ad lists the song CowgirlS in the Sand, and "unreleased song" FALL For Your Love. Oh well I guess they get points for trying.

Anyway, I'll leave you with that and get in the car, pop in my copy of Road Rock and drive home to Cowgirl again. I can already hear it... '...Hello Cowgirls in the sand...'

Take care.

Subject: Biz Week Neil

Any Rusties read Business Week? Well the new 12/4/00 issue includes a 4 page feature on Lionel Trains. It drops a few mentions of "rock star and Lionel collector Neil Young", including this paragraph:

"Neil Young, who declined requests for an interview, developed the device to control the sounds and speed of as many as 99 trains at one time. It's an extreme version of a remote control that he had designed years earlier so that his two sons, who have cerebral palsy, could manipulate their toy trains. For each Lionel train, Young also has created and mixed everything from the whistle sounds to simulated commands from the engineer."

Subject: Neil Protest

The December 2000 issue of Acoustic Guitar magazine contains an article, written by David Simons, reviewing the history of protest music in American folk song. The article's implied definition of "protest" seems to encompass songs of mere social commentary. The usual suspects are mentioned, Woody, Phil Ochs, Zimmerman, as well as some not so mainstream artists. Neil, Buffalo Springfield and CSNY get prominent mention for such contributions as For What It's Worth and Ohio, which receives more column inches than any other song mentioned in the article. There's even a photo of CSN performing at 1983's "Survival Sunday" at the Hollywood Bowl.

The article contains the following statement:

"Near the end of the '80s, the subtlety and simplicity that was the hallmark of prime protest music finally resurfaced in a series of songs about domestic violence and economic hardship... Fittingly, Neil Young capped the comeback by weighing in with his own take on domestic blight, Rockin' in the Free World, his most potent -- and political -- tune since Ohio 20 years earlier."

The Atlantic Monthly magazine (December 2000 ) has an article about a wine critic -- he seems to have good taste in music, too. In describing the wine critic's office, the article says...

"That office has a messy desk and a computer, a stereo stacked with CDs (Bob Dylan, Neil Young), a countertop crowded with bottles, a rack of clean wine glasses, and a sink that is deep enough to allow for spitting without splattering."

How 'bout that VH-1 Hard Rock countdown thing last night? Neil & Crazy Horse was in at #39. The musicians shown who worshipped Neil included Bun E. Carlos (Cheap Trick) who did the arms to the sky praising motion (kinda like I always do with Neil), Peter Frampton (damn good guitar player), and JOHNNY ROTTEN!

What an endorsement... John indicated he was puzzled by the meaning of the song (My My Hey Hey), but was "touched" by being included in his music, and has always respected him for sticking to his guns. Now THAT's an endorsement. I've always liked ol' Johnny, even though he comes across as a lunatic most of the time....then again...so do I! Anyway, the universe has officially reached a higher level of order due to Johnny's endorsement.

Subject: Road Rock short delay

I've heard a rumor that the Road Rock album is being pushed back to December 5 rather than next week. That's the date of the Red Rocks Live videos, so my first thought was that this could be some confusion with the release date of those. But it does appear something's up...

Checking the online music stores, Amazon, CDnow, Tower and Wherehouse all still list it for next week, but Barnes & Noble and CDUniverse both show it for December 5. This makes it appear that it HAS slipped, and that the other stores haven't updated to show December 5 yet.

A check of the Reprise Records site's front page still mentions it (in the "Coming Soon" list) as coming next week (11/21). But in the "store" section of the site, it is listed as coming on December 5. I tend to trust whoever it is that updates their "store" pages to have the correct date.

I think it's safe to assume now that December 5 is the date.

Last night Honeyslide and I walked down to the Alexis Hotel here in Seattle and saw Henry Diltz give a slide show and exhibit his amazing photos. Really cool. Free wine... Nice big pictures of Neil's cows! There were a few Neil pics that have never been shown anywhere before.

Unfortunately the signed prints were usually $800. There were several people with smoking credit cards as they walked out of there..

Diltz said that Neil's dog "Art" (of "Love Art Blues" fame) is the black and white one with dark ears -- NOT the white dog on the Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere cover.

I asked him about the Buffalo Springfield and Neil archives and he said he has a lot of photos in both. He said the archive box is HUGE -- and he held out his arms to show the size! Said he's actually seen it and there are DVD's, CD's and a huge book. Really amazing. Hope WE get to see it...

For some time now US purchasers had to buy expensive European imports of Trans, so maybe this will introduce the album to some who balked at the high price. The other two have been on "bargain" import prices for a while now, so this US re-release won't make a big difference, probably.

Subject: Road Rock album

I'm hearing (from early reviewers) that the Road Rock album is mixed somewhat like a bootleg. A lot of bottom end, loud crowd noise, etc...

I'm still not positive, but it's looking pretty sure that there will be a separate "DVD-audio" release of the music that's on Road Rock. A separate higher-fidelity product, like a "super CD" for playing on a "DVD-audio capable" DVD player.

If true, this'll be the first of a new line of "product" from Neil -- what'll ultimately replace the CD line of product. My guess is that it'll also be the format on wich the Archives will eventually see the light of day...

I've seen a track listing for the Red Rocks Live DVD songs, and it's the exact same sequence as the first Denver show (9/19). There's been talk that the show was going to be equivalent to the webcast show (9/20), but that can't be the case with this track-list (if it holds).
