Today's The Day: The Neil Young Archives Finally Arrives!
UPDATE: From Archives Guy:
Welcome to June 2, 2009
On behalf of the NY Archives team and Shakey Pictures I am pleased and proud to announce the official release of the Neil Young Archives Vol 1 box set.
May I start your day with the 1st Edition of the Archives Post-Informer...Early Edition...ink is still wet.
What you will see here was personally written by Neil today on his manual typewriter as a message to share with you, the listeners and fans.
We have many more pleasant surprises coming up in the days and months ahead, so stay tuned.
Thank you for your patience and support.

And I've been waiting for you.
For such a long time now.
Normally, we say tonight's the night. But, today's the day.
Somehow, in the miracle of all miracles, the Holy Grail arrives!
Hell freezes over. Peace in the Mid-east. World hunger is solved. Poverty erased.
We look back to the day in 1977 when we picked up the 3 LP Decade and spent what seemed to be an entire afternoon playing the 6 sides and reading through all the notes. Little did we realize at the time that Decade was only the tip of the iceberg.
OK, so it's Volume #1 of the Neil Young Archives. And it's been a Titanic adventure in more ways than one.
The following video by tomlong95 captures some of the the drama and excitement that comes with the unveiling of the long awaited, much anticipated day that we thought we would never see: the opening of Arc of the Covenant.
BUY THE ARCHIVES ON BLU-RAY !!! NOW !!!
Seriously, this is the BEST THING ever released. It's better than you could ever imagine, packed full with stuff that will keep you entertained for months.
Is it worth the price? Once you hold it in your hands it makes YOU feel unworthy being allowed to possess such an inestimable treasure.
It's a man's life and this man is God, because since today NEIL YOUNG IS GOD. Write it on the walls tonight!
...Well, sorry for being so ecstatic and excuse the guerilla style camera but I have been so hyped and finally all my expectations have been exceeded.
BTW: The audio was swapped because WMG seeks to ban all NY songs from Youtube, sorry.
Once again: Buy this, it's the pinnacle of Rock'n'Roll history !
Many of us Neil Young fans feel as if we are King Arthur's surrounded by Knights of the Round Table. Has there ever been such a tale in the legends of the music gods?
No longer can Neil fans wail The Archives Be Damned. At long last, let The Archives Be Praised!
