Dear NYA: Why Isn't Ragged Glory Available on Vinyl?

Dear NYA
NYA Times-Contrarian
photo by dhlovelife

In a new feature on NYA, Neil Young is now publishing "Letters To The Editor" -- and actually responding?!

"Letters To The Editor"

An assortment of topics in the current batch of that Neil personally replies to. Neil explains that missing analog master tapes of Ragged Glory and will be re-mastered by Engineer John Hanlon.

Other letter topics include NYA content and audio quality. Peter in Holland asked about the never played live "Deep Forbidden Lake". Neil wrote that he would play it at the next solo concert or maybe Promise Of The Real". He could also imagine "Over And Over Again" with the band.

Really great to see how Neil seriously takes fan input on NYA.

Other headlines: Archives app/subscriptions tentatively set to start Nov. 20, Volume 2 CD box/book next May (but no Blu-ray, which is "no longer viable for economic reasons"), Homegrown album coming soon, Boarding House videos on the way (though no date yet).

Thanks, Thrasher! How does one write a letter to the editor on the archives?

At 10/09/2018 12:14:00 PM, Blogger Senor said...

On the left hand top corner of the MAIN page, there is a box with 3 horizontal lines.
Hit the box and a menu comes up...Contact us is a t the very bottom.

Hope that helps!

@Andy: That's the "Billbox" chart, "the most popular albums sold at the Xstream by NYA store."

According to a new-ish post in another section (John Hanlon's Notebook), "Songs For Judy" (aka The Bernstein Tapes) is in pre-production.

Most of the recordings come from the Bernstein's original audio cassettes, although sctually A Visit To The Archives shows analog reels from these shows, not cassettes. Probably the tour wasn't multitracked, if not selected shows, if any.
