That’s 35 individual albums........ jeepers!!!!!!! I’m totally prepared for disappointment, but what a forecast for the future. I just can’t imagine all that material in the next two years. Time will tell, but it’s a nice dream for now. Now I’m just going to have to figure out how I’m going to pay for all this stuff.

Peace 🙏

What about the sound quality of the first boot that will will be out in August, if this will be confirmed ?

At 4/13/2021 10:07:00 AM, Blogger Phil said...

Good question about the sound quality, Roberto !

On the Timeline today, the covers of the bootlegs appeared ! Including the numbers (which are logically NOT chronological:-):

OBS01: Carnegie Hall
OBS04: Royce Hall
OBS03: Dorothy Chandler Pavilion
OBS06: Somewhere Under The Rainbow
OBS05: Citizen Kane Jr. Blues
OBS02: High Flyin' (The Ducks)

No tracklists so far.

I threw in the WDITRB DVD last night after only listening to the CD mix for weeks...sounds even worse than I recalled...

please hurry up with the replacements!!!!!!!!!!!!


At 4/13/2021 11:50:00 AM, Blogger Fabian Thomas said...

I saw on Discogs someone are already selling Eldorado... obviously before the release date, still hope it means it's coming earlier than 22!

At 4/13/2021 12:23:00 PM, Blogger Jonathan said...

Fabian - I picked up Eldorado many years ago as an import CD...don't remember is really great for an EP...Don't Cry is fantastic & On Broadway is simply a good way! can't wait to hear it in hi res!

At 4/13/2021 01:09:00 PM, Blogger Seamus Mc Donnell said...

Sorry if it's been already conversed about...but TOAST anyone? Later? Thanks

At 4/13/2021 02:24:00 PM, Blogger Dan Swan said...

@ Roberto : Neil has said he has tapes of both Carnegie Hall shows but he prefers the early show over the late show that was actually Bootleged. It should sound awesome.

Peace 🙏

i got NYA V2, Return to Greendale, Way down in the rust bucket, and Young Shakespeare all in the box sets

I have seen Neil so many times I hope to see more. 1989 Jones Beach, N.Y. was one of my favorites. Neil will always be my favorite no matter who is with him.

At 4/13/2021 10:59:00 PM, Blogger Nimrod said...

If half of this stuff comes out in the next 5 years, I'll be more than happy. We've been given so much already.

Never Going Back to Greendale.

Ya, it has been possible to buy a Japanese version of Eldorado on Amazon for awhile. I was moaning about its lack of availability on NYA and a TW regular sent me a physical copy! TW has a bunch of amazing people / NY fans! Alan in Seattle

Bought Eldorado as an import of Japan some 20+ years ago, I think. I like it a lot.

Maybe off topic. As I bought NY archives II Deluxe, I could use the code for renewing my Classic level and it worked. Yet I had to cancel my current subscription first!
However I've got a problem: I cannot upgrade to the Rust Level except if paying full fee. This is as if the discount code is useless.
The NYA team is aware of this problem, but no solution yet :-(

I am not buying the Greedy Hand Store anymore. Though I miss the Hi-Res download, I bought the two box sets RTG and Young Shakespeare in a shop in Europe. That was even cheaper. I enjoy them but it is a unfortunate that the video comes only with box set.

Hopefully they are available on NYA site.

Impatient to get the new releases at Neil's pace. No hurry, as we have already so much to hear.

At 4/14/2021 11:34:00 AM, Blogger Fabian Thomas said...

Guys- as a follow-up: I just found a copy of Eldorado on an old hard drive. So sick! Can't wait for the remaster!

At 4/16/2021 12:49:00 PM, Blogger tomatron said...

More release dates have been added for the latest DVDs... and the Archives II book comes out in a week! I’m most pumped about that one because I have the retail edition that didn’t come with the big book.

@ tomatron - thanks! Posted @
+ Official Bootleg Series Release Schedule, as well !

so much neil! so much time! so lucky us.

At 5/02/2021 11:07:00 AM, Blogger Jake Ziegler said...

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 11:44:00 AM, Blogger thrasher said...

@ Jake - that's a really good question.

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