Win Neil Young Archives Boxset

There are two contests going on to win a Neil Young Archives Boxset.

On The Independent, a contest to win a box set, as well as five sets of his complete recordings on Warners.

The contest is super challenging and we're sure that it will be difficult for anyone to possibly win. In order to win, you must correctly answer the following question:

In which country was Neil Young born?

We can only give one hint. It was not on earth.

btw, the article by Andy Gill is quite good in detailing the complexities and contradictions that are Neil Young. And we did learn a couple of things like 1987's Life, whose cover portrayed Neil as imprisoned, the number 5 scratched on his cell wall is supposedly a reference to the number of albums demanded by his contract with Geffen. Innarestin'.

In addition to the The Independent contest, Destin Elite Posters will also be annoucing a Archives winner next week.

Details are here on Neil Young News: Win A Neil Young Archives Box Set.

As always, see Everything You've Ever Wanted To Know About The Neil Young Archives But Were Afraid To Ask to understand why anyone should bother with these contests for free stuff.

Especially when you can show your TW love by clicking on the Amazon link to the right. ;) (You'll Help Support Thrasher's Wheat. Thanks!)
