NYA Disc #1 Back Cover
From Blu-ray.com - Neil Young Archives Sell Out on Blu-ray:
'Neil Young Archives, Volume 1: 1963-1972', released on June 2, has already sold out of its initial shipment, to the surprise of Warner Music, according to Young's producer Larry Johnson. As the reasons for that success, Johnson cited the ongoing addition of content via BD-Live and the BD listener parties held at retailers.
“About 40 people I know had a party at a Best Buy watching Blu-rays,” noted Johnson. “Stores can do that across the country.”
Johnson believes that people are really attracted to the set's automatic notice of new available downloads each time the BD Live-enhanced discs are played. “This keeps it fresh for Neil, but it drives me crazy,” said Johnson, who is managing delivering updates to fans. “He keeps giving and giving.” Johnson said to next look out for access to a download of concert footage from a past Hollywood Bowl performance.

ps - As we mentioned recently, we're dealing with some heavy traffic here @ TW so apologies for slow loads. With the Europe tour and Archives, we have record levels of traffic from around the globe. Quite exciting if you're a data geek, you can watch TW traffic in real time (and always in right bottom sidebar.)
pss - We've just established reciprocal agreements with Amazon Canada and Amazon UK. If you're still looking to order NYA (or anything by Neil) via Amazon, please consider using links on right.
