Contest: Win Uncut Magazine Preview Issue of Neil Young's Archives


Last month, Uncut Magazine published a preview of Neil Young's Archives. Of course, they got a little burned as the latest scheduled Archives release date came and went. Ho-hum. But, that's why we call The Archives our beautiful girl - elusive and unattainable.

Anyways, here's your chance to win a copy of an issue of Uncut Magazine's preview of Neil Young's Archives.

It's an excellent overview of the mythical Archives with lots of tantalizing details. Also, Sharry "Keepin' Jive Alive in T.O." on Rust is interviewed for the article. Yeah Sharry!

It should be noted that the issue includes a free CD "LONG MAY YOU RUN" with 15 brilliant tracks that share musical DNA with Neil Young, including The Gourds, Neal Casal, J Tillman and Hush Arbors. This is a fun little CD bonus.

In order to be eligible to win a copy of an issue of Uncut Magazine's preview of Neil Young's Archives you need to make a donation to the support Thrasher's Wheat blog campaign. (If you made a donation in the last 60 days, you are automatically eligible.)

We're very pleased to be able to offer this issue to one of our loyal supporting readers. We truly appreciate being able to what we do here at TW, and we love being able to give something back in return.

All Thrasher's Wheat supporters between now and the end of March will be automatically entered into the drawing. Click below to send support now via Visa or Mastercard — or send support via Paypal.

Just click on the link below to make a donation. If you do not have a PayPal account, you can use a credit card to make a donation via the button below (see lower left of linked page).

Please don't give out of guilt; just give if you place value on what we do and are in a position to donate a little.

If you're unable to send any support at this time, we understand. You can also enter the drawing by emailing and put UNCUT Contest in SUBJECT line. Those of you who contribute via automatic support payments will also be entered automatically. There's no need to confirm your entry via email.

The deadline for entries is midnight on March 31, 2009.

Good luck - & thanks again for all of the support!

So Why Bother To Support Neil Young News on TW?

Our goal is simple: we create the best Neil Young blog we possibly can, refrain from contaminating it with advertising, and then ask you to donate to us what you think it's worth. So far it seems to be working out sort of. We're not likely to break even on bandwidth and storage expenses (much less donated labor) this way, but that's not our goal.

Here at TW we're not just non-commercial. We're anti-commercial. We feel that quality blogs and advertising just cannot co-exist. We also choose to refrain from forcibly extracting money from you by charging subscription fees. We leave it up to you to decide what our service is worth to you.

Send support now via Visa or Mastercard — or use Paypal — or scroll down for other options.

Your voluntary support enables us to devote all of our time and energy to making TW the best blog possible - and pays for the bandwidth, equipment and services required to keep the blog online.

The amount of your contribution is up to you - based on your opinion of how much you enjoy TW & what you can afford. A number of reader's have adopted the "one hour's wages per month" formula - some can afford to send even more than that (thanks!), others can afford only $5.

We particularly appreciate automatic monthly, quarterly or annual support payments. The more regular ongoing support we receive in that fashion the less we have to bug you on the blog. Please consider choosing that option of support.

We want to extend our sincere thanks to everyone who has contributed so generously over the past few years. We quite literally couldn't do it without you.

And, as always, we understand that contributing money is just not an option for some of you. That's fine. All posts, feeds and services at TW are open to everyone, and we will do everything in our power to keep it that way.

Send support now via Visa or Mastercard — or use Paypal — or scroll down for other options.
Safety & Security Concerns:

When sending & receiving your credit card information online we use the standard https protocol that all online commerce sites (Amazon, banks, brokerage houses, etc) use. We do not know -- much less store your credit card number. We have no way to access that data ourselves, even if we wanted to.

We do not ever, under any circumstances, share your email address or any other information about you with any third party - nor do we engage in any kind of email or direct-mail marketing. We will send occasional (2-3 times per year) email to readers, which you can opt out of by unsubscribing.

Other Ways to Help:

Use our TW Neil Young Amazon Shopping Store :

Neil Young Store on

When shopping for your CDs, DVDs, books and other merchandise (Neil & Non-Neil) use the Amazon link above (it's always in the lower right sidebar, too). Each time you purchase an item on Amazon by clicking through the logo link above, Thrasher's Wheat will receive a small commission.

(Please note: International orders (non-U.S.A.) do not credit to Thrasher's Wheat unfortunately. Please use PayPal account or credit card to support Thrasher's Wheat.)

Spread the Neil Love:

Spreading the word about Thrasher's Wheat is also a huge help. If you have friends that you think might enjoy TW - please take a moment to drop them a note. Postings about TW on appropriate web forums are also a great way to spread the word.

As a matter of fact, we have folks using our new Thrasher's Wheat logo on their blogs!

Thanks again for all of your support! Neil fans are the best!
