I love this song! Anyone know if we’ll get an early download for it if we pre-purchased NYA 2?

A lovely example of less is more, which Neil has always excelled at.

Just perfect.

Peace 🙏

It's so perverse that Neil has held on to stuff this good for so long!

Excellent version of “Homefires”, very excited for NYA2’s arrival. Now I just need to order the Return to Greendale box to see 2020 out in style!

good one Neil!

Great track. Another little jewel included with Archives 2 is Love Art Blues. That track is on the CSN&Y 1974 box set. Crosby & Nash do the backup vocals. After listing to the CSN&Y version I always thought the song would be better served with just Neil singing & no backup vocals. I think the version on Archives 2 is just Neil solo. I can't wait to hear that version.

What a fantastic song! We are being rewarded for our undying love and appreciation for the life’s work of our musical Hero, an Eco Warrior too! Thanks Neil! I also will enjoy it on NYA for years to come. But I also want to own the physical copy. I want it on Blu Ray! Anyone at the Record Company listening?! I want to buy this on Blu Ray! I bought my surround system for Archives 1. I own a lot of great high resolution music to enjoy on that system. But now it looks like a long shot to even get it on CD, and I am broke. This pandemic is not kind to the wallet. So how about selling a CD version with no book? How about selling just the unreleased music discs separately for those who want them?! I own all of the discs out thus far except Tuscaloosa. So now I must re-buy all the same CD’s and get a nice book even though I cannot afford it. If NYA 2 comes out on Blu Ray, I will buy it. BUT the way it looks I’d be lucky to get the CD’s. I have faith that Reprise will come to its senses and realize that they must sell this product and multiply the quantities by 10 or 20, at least!
But I get to sit back and enjoy (&) Keep the Home Fires Burning & all the rest. Still waiting for the Eldorado EP to come to life on NYA. I bought the Cocaine Eyes CD single back in the day; that’s as close as I got. So much treasure to enjoy. I SO appreciate the artist who dreamed all of this up! One day Neil will be wielding 0ld Black in Valhalla! And I will join him there at the Great Gig in the Sky.

But for now, I will listen here on Earth, our dying planet. NYA is a salve for weary souls.

Don’t forget to vote! The Oligarchy depends on the people believing in fair elections and Democracy. The 1% will be fine either way. Good job, DNC, picking the less popular sellout candidate with the horrible record, a guy who promises he won’t ban fracking and wonders why the Cops don’t just “shoot ‘em in the leg.” Ya, the DNC could only beat 1 politician... they chose Bernie.

Crazy that a track of this quality has been sat in the archives all this time. Absolutely stoked for NYA vol.2 to arrive.

Great to get the conversation back to the music,. With the release of Homegrown and "Come along and say you will' and 'Homefires' Neil is letting us in to his life even more deep. Filling the gaps. Thanks Shakey

Alan--Thanks for your comments. I am in a very similar situation: money is very tight, I have Tuscaloosa,Roxy, TTN, OTB. (yes, there are few unreleased songs). No way could I afford a $250 box set with so much redundant music. I would probably purchase Discs #1 and #6 if they were available separately.

So, I second your comments/concerns.

PS I bought Eldorado for $25 back in the day, which would be $50 in today's money.I had a lot more disposable income back then. El D not worth it at that price, I'm afraid.

@ Alan - Great to see you're able to comment again here on TW. Sorry about all the logon troubles. This seems to be a mobile glitch where sometoken is stored requiring reset. About the only solution we've found is to crash browser app, logout and re-login. We know that's a pain, sorry.

@Alan - I have copy of Eldorado EP on CD I was about to trade into my local record store. Contact me privately at at and I will arrange to send your way. Much rather it has a good home then resold at some high price. Kevin D. Morro Bay
