Archives Open Thread Tuesday, 6/9/09
UPDATE: Amazon.UK is out of stock of NYA and has sent the following message to back order customers (via Dave on Rust):
"Please accept our apologies for this inconvenience, but 'Neil Young: Archives, Vol. 1: 1963-1972 [Blu-ray] ' appears to have been a surprise sellout.
When you placed your order, we believed we had access to more copies - we then discovered that every one of our distributors had rapidly sold out.
Major distributors have thousands of copies on order from the publisher, all apparently awaiting the next print run. As soon as more copies become available, we'll be able to dispatch them to our customers."
Bummer Dave. :( Hope you find your little box at the top of stairs soon.
And for those wonderin' about our link title for the TW NYA FAQ, we can only say:
"Stick around while the clown who is sick does the trick of disaster"
Make sense now??? So, take that 4% Club.

Here's today's daily open thread on the Neil Young Archives where you can post thoughts and questions.
Archives Guy seems to be checking in on occasion as time permits. But if you know the answer to folks' questions, please try and help out, to free up AG to focus on newer issues.
Got a report? Drop a comment below. No registration required.
Also, see The Neil Young Archives for FAQ's and tutorials.
Again, feel free to post here your concerns and questions. But also try and resolve through your distributor. If you ordered from WB site, call 866-430-6230.
Another source of good answers to questions is good old fashioned search. There is a search box on right about midway down. If you include "Archives Guy" (with qoute marks) and your question, it might just come up.
And -- as always -- see Everything You've Ever Wanted To Know About The Neil Young Archives But Were Afraid To Ask.
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.)
