The latest issue of Broken Arrow Magazine, published by the Neil Young Appreciation Society just arrived and we're now finishing up reading the issue. As always a nice read -- especially as we look back while looking ahead.

And -- thanks to the generous support of NYAS and editor Scott Sandie -- we're pleased to be able to offer a copy of the latest issue of Broken Arrow Magazine to a Thrasher's Wheat reader. Details follow below.

Issue #117 (February 2010) of Broken Arrow Magazine - as usual - has some fine articles, commentary and nice photos.

In particular, a very, very detailed research project on Neil Young's early formal education by Rustie extraordinaire Sharry Wilson (NYAS #1063). "A Shakey Education" with over 30 pages, rare, unpublished, exclusive photos and artifacts with five pages of footnotes and comments is beyond definitive. A very educational read and -- without a doubt -- the most thorough examination of Neil's early years ever assembled.

And this is ONLY Part #1. Part #2, "The Winnipeg Years" will be in the next issue.

Also in the issue:
  • Neil Young Performance Performance Series (NYPAS)
  • Dreamin' Reviews
  • In Memory of Larry "L.A." Johnson
And as usual, a news section edited by Guy Haslam, with lots of innarestin' items.

Don't be denied!

Thanks Scott and everyone who is supporting the NYAS & BA!

Oh my, yet another "innarestin'". Is it so hard to type the word "interesting"? Or is just so cool and hip to use the other one all the time? Hmmm...interesting..

It's the Jimmy McDonough convention - using innarestin' proves you've spent many an evening perusing "Shakey"

Innarestin', eh?

Thanks jon and Jim for the links - cool!

Donation made, but I don`t need to be entered into the prize draw, thanks T, as I`m already well into my Feb copy. This is only the 2nd BA mag I`ve read, but I`m very impressed with the the superb in-depth articles, photos and general Neil-related info. All fascinating stuff and, of course, innarestin!
