The Archives and "Sugar Mountain"
The excruciatingly delayed "Archives" project is "supposed to be" released on November 3. (Note, this will be at the same time that Hell freezes over.) This information comes from Warner Bros. release sheets and Uncut confirms.
Incidentally, this places the release date one day prior to the U.S. presidential election so we're sure this news will have a significant impact on the race and cause a drop in voting participation as fans watch their Blu-rays and opt out of going to the polls. What was Neil thinking with this release date??? Regardless, folks are going to be either cheering or crying that week.
Also, according to our source BECAUSE SOUND MATTERS (who has been on target in the past), Neil Young will release "Sugar Mountain" on September 29. Exact details of what this album will contain are unconfirmed, but it’s widely presumed to be another set of vintage live material.
A bootleg album, "Live On Sugar Mountain", recorded at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles on the last night of Neil Young's early-1971 solo tour, has long been in circulation, and it’s *possible* the material for this official release may well be drawn from that show.
Thanks Greg, BSM & Scott in Glasgow!
