A Message From Neil Young: A PANDEMIC AND A RARE GIFT | NYA

A Message From Neil Young: 
A PANDEMIC AND A RARE GIFT | NYA

In a posting yesterday from March highlighted on NYA on Tuesday, comes A Message From Neil Young: A PANDEMIC AND A RARE GIFT | NYA.

In March, we reported that Neil Young found that the pandemic brought "The focus, a gift". The focus was the gift, which has brought us an "avalanche of an embarrassment of riches" -- or as we characterized previously -- Expecting to Calculate Neil Young 2021: Numbers Add Up To Nothin' ... or "A Rusties Holy Grail".


 Neil Young: Now & Then
 

Essentially, Neil Young recaps the past 6 months or so and how he and Daryl moved from Colorado to a 116 year old wooden cottage on a lake near his old hometown Omemee, Ontario, Canada.

 
Welcome to Omemee, Ontario, Canada

 

Neil's message continues with a rundown on all of the projects he has completed and will be releasing over the next year or so.  Most of the release details have been previously shared.  See Neil Young's planned release schedule for 2021 and 2022 plus Neil Young's DVD & Official Bootleg Series release schedule.

(See Neil Young Release Schedule For 2021 & 2022: TENTATIVE* DATES**)

Also, see Neil Young's "The focus, a gift": Reflecting on Reflections, with details of the dozens of release projects in the pipeline.

My my Hey Hey. Well Neil sure picked an awesome winter to return to here in Ontary-ary-ary-io. It was an epic one from his youth...the snow came and it stayed...none of the freeze/thaw/rain takes away the snow and turns it all into slush crap that has become more and more the norm with these days of climate change upon us. Lots of extended sun too. Impeccable timing Neil & we welcome you back home !

Is the message you wrote about the one that’s dated a month ago? (3/28/21)

@ Mark from T.O. - thanks for climate update!

Let's see what summer brings ...

@ Art - hmm, you're right. We saw the date but didn't catch month. We thought this was an update to the March post. Well somehow this got pushed to top of front page on NYA-TC.

oh well, it gave us the opp to go back and visit Omemee. such a pleasant little town.

Now I'm going back to Canada

@ Rist - From Peru to Texarkana ???

Oh Neil. If only all of us had your means and arrogance. The media made you a god and you ran with it. And pretended you didn’t. Where next?

What a strange thing to say.

Is there anywhere with a list of the songs Neil has put on the archives that were not released on CD? I'd like to put together a playlist to make sure I listen to them all.

 
At 5/02/2021 11:42:00 AM, Blogger thrasher said...

@ Jake - that's a really good question.

there are many sources to compile such a playlist. Here's a start:

The Unofficial Archive - Neil Young's Unreleased Songs by Robert Broadfoot
Version 7 (Abridged): 12 November 2019

To download PDF file, see
http://neilyoungnews.thrasherswheat.org/2019/11/neil-youngs-unreleased-songs-uncle.html

let us know if that works. and share any other helpful references.
