Neil Young’s Archives, Vol. 1 Is Crazy Comprehensive

Not only that, but the 10-disc retrospective is “The Most Ambitious Artist Collection Ever Produced.” The first volume covers the first 10 years (1963-1972) of Shakey’s career. If you don’t believe the hype, watch this promotional video. It makes pretty odd (and repeated) use of Richard Nixon, then goes to great, hyperbolic lengths to illustrate exactly what you’ll get if you lay down the big bucks for this thing — basically everything minus Young’s auto bailout plan.

Neil Young Archives, Vol. 1: 1963-1972 is 2/24 out via Reprise.
