Hidden "Hidden" Track on Sugar Mountain

There appears to be a super secret hidden "hidden" track on Sugar Mountain.

In TW comments recently (which lunar_tunes on Rust pointed out), if you pop the CD in your PC, there's a download link for the track "#1 Hit Song Rap".

Of course, the track is so hidden that most folks can't seem to find it. So here's a spoiler tip -- go to Neil Young Download Page.

The rap is quite hilarious and another astonishing premonition of what would come over the next 40 years.

SML seems to be doing pretty well and is still rising to 18 15 14 on Bestsellers (updated hourly).

Here's some of the best of Sugar Mountain reviews that folks are raving about.

"#1 Hit Song Rap" is hillarious. Great tune.
Can somebody let me know how to find it on a Mac?
Tried it earlier today a couple of times. No result.

so much for "archives guy" saying that any hidden tracks on archives wont be that hard to find.... err hello?!?!

sorry archives guy, but you do need to be standing on one leg, pressing every button counter clockwise, and with a full moon and a strong wind behind you to find it..

archives guy be dammed!

Where does this place in the flow of the album? I'm trying to rename it as part of the album within iTunes but have no idea where to place it. (That is, track 24?)

It was originally between Broken Arrow and Birds from the second night. Since the CD doesn't give any detail about what song came from which night, and Birds already has a preceding rap, I'm going to put it before Broken Arrow on my iPod.

Wow thanks guys for letting us know that's there. I woulda never found that. When I put the CD into my PC I did not see a link so thanks. That song was so funny. I actually wish it was on the album!

Ok, so they're not releasing the Archives on CD because quality matters. However, there is an iTunes only track and a bonus download track from 'Sugar Mountain' both of which are only available in lossy format.

Makes a lot of sense.

On a related note, is the "Canterbury House" bonus Archives trailer is the same one that's been running at for the past 6 months or so?

"there is an iTunes only track"

"It was originally between Broken Arrow and Birds from the second night."

How did you come to this conclusion since no one has ever heard this show before?

" I Am A Child" is the iTunes only track.....

I know where it came in the original shows from Ghosts on the Road. Check it out, lots of useful info there.

Just saw Neil in Auburn Hills, Mi 12/7/08. Great show. Question does anyone know what was with the back drop of letters and numbers behind the stage. It spelled Neil at the end. Also whats with the artist painting during the show. Curious.

To JR Heat Warp:
The "Canterbury House" bonus Archives trailer is NOT the same one that's been running at for the past 6 months or so.
It's a completely new trailer.

In my opinion "#1 Hit Song Rap" fits in perfectly between "Birds" and "Winterlong (excerpts)"...

I think "I Am A Child" should be the encore. (Shame on Neil to have it left out from the "in stores" version of the album...).

And.. where the hell on iTunes can you get this "I am a child"? Anybody did it or found it at least?

anybody know where I could get a download for this I would love to hear it. when I click the link it says the contest is over if anyone can help that would be great.
