And we thought that 2006 was a great year?! It seems every year we do this, it seems like it's better than the year before. Will 2008 be the Year of the Archives?

Needless to say, looking forward to Europe 2008!

Thanks for everyone supporting Thrasher's Wheat!

Thanks Neil and Pegi for the memories. Happy New Year to all!

I'm glad that I found this blog in 2007.
Keep on the great work!

I'll keep on hoping that Neil Young will arrive in Israel one day.

Don't know if this is old news, but I was digging around in Borders Books DVD's yesterday and I stumbled upon an apparently new DVD titled: "Neil Young, Under Review 1976-2006 - an independent critical analysis". I haven't had a chance to view it yet but it includes: musical peformances by neil that are reviewed by a "team of esteemed experts" that includes John Einarson, Robert Chistgau, Barney Hoskins, Nigel Williamson, Dave Zimmer, Johnny Rogan, Clinton Heylin "and many others". Also includes "obscure footage, rare interview and seldom seen photographs" an "interactive Neil Young gaming features" (what the hell is that?!) and a "Beyond DVD section". Also says "This DVD is not authorised by Neil Young, his managment or his record company". Also says it is "Part of the Chrom Dreams Group of Companies" (again, WTF?) looks like a uK company. they give a web site (www.chromedreams.co.uk). It's copyright 2007 so it must have been out for some time, so I hope I'm not regurgitating common knowlege. Like I said, I haven't had a chance to view it yet and don't know if it's crap or a gem.
