Nice photo gallery of Neil Young at Paris Zénith, Paris, France, June 4th, 2009 by Guino Patrice on RockerParis.

And -- like so much of Neil's '80's work - it has slowly come back in vogue. Particularly in the dark post 9/11 days.
So here's a rather clever animation of "We R in Control" by Christian Madsen of Villainous Turtle Cinema, who made this in 2004 for a talent show in his senior year of high school.

I purchased this item from Jeff Gold, former Executive Vice President/General Manager of Warner Bros. Records and Vice President of Marketing and Creative Services at A&M Records, who has been collecting records for nearly 40 years. Jeff is a highly knowledgeable individual regarding the music industry and was profiled by Rolling Stone Magazine as one of the top collectors of high-end music memorabilia in the world.
According to Jeff 's account from Joel Bernstein (musician, rock & roll photographer and good friend of Neil Young), Neil and Joel were at Neil's ranch going though Neil's vast amount of vinyl. Apparently, Joel was helping Neil sort vinyl into a save pile and a discard pile. Jeff's understanding was that Neil tossed this acetate in the discard pile, from which it was then salvaged by Joel. Jeff Gold bought it from Joel, I bought it from Jeff, and such is the history of this unique collectible.
