Four long-delayed Neil Young vinyl reissues, including the reprint of rare 1973 album Time Fades Away, will finally be released on September 6. (Time Fades Away was long exclusive to Young’s Pono service.) Remastered versions of On the Beach, Tonight's the Night, and Zuma round out the box set, which is coming via Reprise. The albums were released as a limited edition set for Record Store Day in 2014, a press release notes, but these are their first standalone reissues.

ive got all of them on vinyl aside from Zuma but if the TnT reissue has the insert and gatefold, i'll probably get it as i've got a fairly mundane pressing. but i am sorted on OG pressings for TFA and OTB

Neil released a new song today called Peace Trail and, more importantly, returned all of his music to Spotify and Apple Music.

Also, here's a Thanksgiving themed Neil playlist called The Old Homestead from Aquarium Drunkard.

'Hitchhiker' to be Released 7/14
01 “Powderfinger”
02 “Hold Back The tears”
03 “Human Highway”
04 “Hitchhiker”
05 “Ride My Llama”
06 “Lookout For My Love”
07 “Lotta Love”
08 “Fontainebleau”
09 “Campaigner”

Hitchhiker is a collection of solo acoustic songs that Young recorded at Indigo Ranch Studios in Malibu, and here’s how he recalled the experience in his 2014 memoir Special Deluxe:
I spent the night there with David and recorded nine solo acoustic songs, completing a tape I called Hitchhiker.

It was a complete piece, although I was pretty stony on it, and you can hear it in my performances. Dean Stockwell, my friend and a great actor who I later worked on Human Highway as a co-director, was with us that night, sitting in the room with me as I laid down all the songs in a row, pausing only for weed, beer, or coke. Briggs was in the control room, mixing live on his favorite console.

Uncle Neil desperately needs someone to tell him that just because he CAN release a new composition, that doesn't necessarily mean that he SHOULD release it. I couldn't even get all the way through that abortion.

WTF???

Slightly embarrassed about the timing of having just evoked Neil as THE example of an evolving always relevant artist. Yikes. I guess this gets filed under "if you want your artists growing, changing, experimenting, absorbing new influences and all that good stuff, sometimes the results are not going to be pretty.

Neil's new Hitchhiker album seems to have everyone fired up again about Powderfinger (myself included). Here's a new write-up on the lyrics from American Songwriter.

“Look out, Mama, there’s a white boat coming up the river.” So begins Neil Young’s “Powderfinger,” a song that has captivated, intrigued and mystified his fans ever since it was released. It’s a striking opening, one that might have portended something fortuitous had Young taken the song in another direction. But “Powderfinger” burrows mercilessly towards death, landing there even before the narrator has finished his story...

Not really. If a board states they have such a policy in place yet refuses to actually enforce it, why even state that you have such a policy? Also, when the text of an entire article is posted it robs music journalists (and journalists in general) of revenue. Apparently that is something you and the Admin of 3DD are ok with. I always thought folks here were all about being sure that their favorite artists see the most profit from the purchase of their products. The same train of thought applies to writers. The amount of traffic that is driven to the sites they write for is important. By posting the entire text of an article, there is no need to visit the site. These writers, like musicians, are struggling to get by and to them, the amount of "clicks" they receive is vital to their survival. If you want to make me out to be an asshole for pointing this out, you are sadly mistaken.
