This should be great, especially coming right after shows at The Gardens (Boston and Madison Square). I know Jon Stewart is a charter member of Team Bruce but I'm sure he's a Neil fan as well, and his show has been especially good (and wicked funny!) in the pre and post election period. Thanks T for giving us the news.

Speaking of TV shows, last night's episode of The Walking Dead had a graphic during a commercial break with "Norman Reedus' Zombie Apocalypse Playlist" and it included Rockin' In The Free World. Also had Dirty Boots (Sonic Youth) and Iggy's The Passenger on the list plus some others I can't recall right now...very cool. And Norman is my favorite on the show; if Neil watches, I bet he likes Daryl Nixon as well--just the kind of winner that you'd meet in the dives, a guy who rides a chopper and loves kids.

Unrelated but: I just got my vinyl in the mail. Did Neil really NOT include a download card? Every small time local band in Austin includes a free download card of their album with the vinyl, and those LPs cost $10 from struggling musicians.

Neil wants me to fork over for the iTunes version now, just so I can listen to it in my car? Really?

(And before someone decides I'm a troll who also complains about him playing new songs: Wrong. I'll be seeing him 4 times on this tour and just forked over $70 for 3 records AFTER WAITING instead of buying the iTunes version for $10 a month ago)

If I buy a vinyl LP that doesn't have a download card, I either happily download it illegally, or wait a little and buy the CD used on amazon for a buck or two. Especially for one this expensive, which is about 60 bucks profit!

That's a little odd about the lack of download card, but I wouldn't read that much into it, since Neil did include a download card with the blu-ray and DVD Archives sets. Maybe he figures that people want it on vinyl don't want to hear the mp3 quality. Anonymous @7:13 PM, have you bought Neil Young vinyl releases of his other recent albums? Did they come with cards?

Search for it on google - there's at least 3 links to to the mp3 on the first pagek. boom, there's your digital download

Yeah, I found the downloads about 30 seconds after I posted that. Didn't think it would be THAT easy. But nonetheless, that just seems stupid.

Unfortunately, no, I've never bought Neil brand new on vinyl until this one. So, no clue how other recent releases have worked.

None of the NY Vinyl releases had digital download cards included. As mentioned above only the Archives Vol.1 had a digital download.
Can't wait to receive that vinyl Pill.

'A Treasure' vinyl came with a digital download card...which I threw away immediately

Who wants mp3 crap anyway?

Jon Leibowitz (Stewart)is lame...

Do you guys really think there's any difference in sound between mp3 and vinyl and CD and bluray? I've been trying and trying and they all sound the same to me. I think NY is hearing things. I'd like to give him a blind listening test because I have really good ears and his are about shot so I don't know how he picks up on the difference. Remember this is the same guy that spent a year thinking he could make an old Lincoln run on water before basically turning it into a Chevy Volt that he still runs on gasoline. I love his music but give me a break.

Earth to Johan - uhhhh yes there's a huge and obvious difference between the formats you listed. I'm not quite sure how you're not hearing what is so clear when done the right way. Perhaps your system sucks no matter what format the music is played through...

Unrelated shameless fanboy questions to anyone who has the vinyl: What is the timing of the two parts of "Driftin' Back" on sides 1 and 2? Does it fade out and in? Are the fades long? Any repetition at the start of side 2 to accommodate the fades? Thanks!

This day (Nov 28) is also Jon Stewart's 50th birthday...wish that Neil had visited my place when I turned the big Five O! Should be great entertainment and maybe Neil will play Happy Birthday on Old Black.

Johan to Earth - I thought it would come to this, "There's either something wrong with your ears or with your stereo if you can't hear the difference". The cruel irony is that it always came down to that back in the 80's too even with the best stereo and perfect hearing except then it was virtually everyone trying to convince me how much better CDs sounded than vinyl and how I really needed to buy all my albums again on the amazing new digital format that perfectly captured every nuance of the original master without all the degradation that happens to the sound when the molds are cut and the vinyl is pressed and when the record get's worn and the needle gets worn or the arm is imbalances or the platter wobbles etc etc etc. They said I must be deaf because I thought they sounded the same and proved it again and again in blind tests too all these people who couldn't tell the difference if they didn't know which it was either. I say stop worrying about every detail and enjoy the music and if Pono is really that much better I'll be pleasantly surprised, but very surprised none the less.

OK I admit that I was wrong. I fired up my best ears and best stereo and flicked back and forth between my best new vinyl copy of Everybody Knows This is Nowhere and the really nice MP3s I have of it and I agree that the vinyl actually does sound noticeably better.

If Pono sounds better than vinyl and is as nice and portable as mp3 it's going to be totally worth it. Soon we'll just look back at mp3s as that compressed crap people listened to when computers were first invented ;-].

Looking forward to seeing Neil Young on the John Stewart show: they're my two favourite guys and together they might talk about some cool stuff!
