Broken Arrow Magazine: November 2011 - Win a Copy and a NYA Boxset

Neil Young - 1966

The latest issue of Broken Arrow Magazine, published by the Neil Young Appreciation Society recently hit the streets 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 #124 (November 2011) of Broken Arrow Magazine - as usual - has some fine articles, commentary and rare photos.

It includes Part One of a fascinating memoir from Vicki Cavaleri, originally a waitress at the Whisky A Go Go who was there at the very start of the Buffalo Springfield story in LA in 1966 and who spent much of that year in the company of Neil Young. This article is accompanied by some vintage posters and photos from 1966. The cover is a stunning 1966 photo by legendary rock photographer and friend to the NYAS Nurit Wilde.

Once again this issue sports a colour centrefold, this time of Farm Aid and Bridge School Benefit photos sent in by members, and there also is a long, detailed article on the premiere of Neil Young Journeys at the Toronto International Film Festival. News editor Guy Haslam catches up with ex-Crazy Horse sideman Matt Piucci in London for an interesting interview, and there are all the usual features, including a detailed letter from Pete Long on the ongoing Old Ways saga.

Finally the sad recent passing of Bert Jansch and Jackie Leven – and their relationships to Neil Young – are noted with obituaries.

For more information and subscription information visit the Neil Young Appreciation Society or directly contact NYAS editor Scott Sandie at

Neil Young Archives Vol. 1

Want to help out the Neil Young Appreciation Society? Want to win a Neil Young Archives Vol. 1 Bluray 10 disc box set?

OK, here's how and why...

In the issue of Broken Arrow Magazine: May 2011, in the final article 'Last Dance', NYAS editor Scott Sandie and esteemed colleague (and pint consuming connoisseur) Guy Haslam issued a call for submissions to Broken Arrow from all Society membership.

So have a look at this article list below and use it as a prompt. Why not write that article that you’ve always thought about, either on one of these topics or anything else that you have in mind? Set yourself a target to write one, or at least have a go. At worst it won’t be published. At best you’ll see yourself in print in your own magazine. And earn a NYA boxset, to boot.

Drop editor Scott "Surfer Joe" Sandie an e-mail ( to talk about it and make a proposal. They’re open to almost anything.

Act now. Seize the day. Your society needs you!

Potential article topics listed here.

The deadline for article submissions has been extended indefinitely. So you have plenty of time to do your Neil research, polish it up, and send it in. (Thanks to all who have made submissions thus far as we continue to evaluate.)

This is the first volume of the Neil Young Archives series of box sets, produced by Neil Young himself. This series is the definitive, comprehensive, chronological survey of his entire body of work. Volume I covers the period from his earliest recordings with the Squires in Winnipeg, 1963, through to his classic 1972 album, Harvest and beyond, including studio and live tracks with the legendary Buffalo Springfield, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, and Neil Young with Crazy Horse. This Blu Ray disc edition contains 10 discs, each in its own custom sleeve. 9 of these discs hold a total of 128 tracks (12 hidden), all presented in ultra high resolution 24-bit/192 Khz stereo PCM state-of-the-art master quality sound, and featuring nearly 60 previously unreleased songs, versions, mixes, or rare tracks.
