Great recording! Looking forward to hearing the whole album.

Giving the hype around NYA subscribers getting to hear releases first, I'm surprised this got posted to YouTube before it hit NYA (I'm a subscriber). I do hope we get the streaming of Songs for Judy that it was announced earlier this week to start tonight at 8 PM PST.

IDK. I’m a little indifferent to all these releases of songs previously done dozens of times. Nothing wrong with it of course... just can’t get excited by it...meh

At 11/30/2018 10:28:00 AM, Blogger andrea1bianco said...

Oh well, most of songs are relatively rare, at least officially.

While the hardcore fans on this website most likely will have heard these songs if not the bootlegged collection previously, this really is peak material presented in pristine audio. I listened to this the whole way through this morning and it really is gorgeous, stoney and melodic. The casual Neil fan deserves to hear this too.

(Ready for Odeon/Budokan film!)

like others, it seems, the announcement of this album left me un-excited...but my little local music store, who sometimes, will let me have a copy a few days early, offered this up and i had to pull the trigger...again, this might have been a release i skipped. or at least didn't pick up right away. i mean, how special is archives vol.2 going to be if this era keeps getting stand alone issues? anyway, i had picked up a few other things that day and finally threw the songs for judy on... Wow! i put this up with the massey hall show. it sounds fantastic!! great versions of great songs, little moments all over the place man needs a made hurricane synth intro, banjo human highway, white line, here we are in the years, maybe my favourite acoustic mr soul, six string pocahontas...i could go on. and i had the bernstein tape boot leg. but this is standing as one of my absolute favourites of the archive releases so far...this seems insane, but, folks...give 1976 live acoustic neil a chance, its pretty great.

his piano on No One Seems to Know is exquisite. Maybe the best Ive heard. This may be a desert island issue, Songs for Judy

There's possibly an interesting insight into Neil's creative process in the Archive extras for Songs For Judy. The Human Highway folder contains a beautiful concert review by David W. Chandler for the Wisconsin State Journal. It talks of the theme of Neil's songs as being about the will to live, or the effort to live. Next time Neil was in the studio, when the tour was over, he's laying down The Will To Love. Its hard to believe he didn't read that review and it sparked something.

@ Knowledge Nomad - looks like all is well @NYA streaming now.

@ Andy - still?

@ Paul - that's unfortunate.

@ andrea1bianco- right, but after listened to a 10th generation cassette for years, this is pure joy and sounds pristine comparatively speaking.

@ rtg - right, again, we knew there was a reason wee just typed "pristine". :)

"gorgeous, stoney and melodic" nice, exactly.

@ Unknown - putting with the Massey Hall is high praise, for sure.

Banjo Human Highway is a real revelation. Just before Neil says something like he'd been trying to record HH for years but something always got in the way? hmmm.

@ wsanjose01 - similar to banjo HH, NOSTK is exquisite, as you say.

S4J has been on repeat @ TW HQ since Friday.

No, not naive. It's hard when you wake up and realize that most of these guys are just crooks. but now you know, so you know what to do...

@ Art Symbol - thanks, yes, a very interesting insight there on Neil's creative process. We need to go back and read that review. good catch. more to come for sure as the exploring gets underrway.

btw, here's a nice S4J review...

This is one of the most satisfying releases yet, of so many! A slew of unreleased songs and fantastic versions of others. I swear I can hear Like A Hurricane being born in the intro to A Man Needs A Maid. Good lord, what a gold mine! Thank you Neil Young! Thank you Thrasher! Alan in Seattle
