UPDATE ON DVD REPLACEMENTS: "Way Down In The Rust Bucket" by Neil Young w/ Crazy Horse + The Force of the Horse | NYA

"Way Down In The Rust Bucket" 
by Neil Young w/ Crazy Horse

Replacement DVDs of "Way Down In The Rust Bucket" by Neil Young w/ Crazy Horse are finally starting to arrive and early reports are that it "sounds heavenly!!!!!" (Thanks Jonathan!)


 "Way Down In The Rust Bucket" by Neil Young w/ Crazy Horse


As we reported here back in March, (see  "RUST BUCKET" DVD Audio Issues: Neil Young Owns It and Steps Up) Neil Young is stepping up on the issue regarding the DVD audio on ‘Way Down in the Rust Bucket’

"RUST BUCKET" DVD Audio Issues: Neil Young Owns It and Steps Up


As background, a TW reader commented back in February on the audio concerns on the DVD versus the CD, LP or hi-res files. The TW commenter -- Mr. Harm -- then followed up directly with NYA with a Letter to Editor to which Neil Young personally responds.

Neil Young's response is noteworthy in its transparency, honesty, accountability, and integrity. 

Shortly thereafter the discovery of flaws, came word on Members Page | T-C | NYA that replacement DVDs are shipping to everyone who ordered either the stand-alone DVD or the Deluxe Box Sets from the Greedy Hand Store, as well as to those who purchased the Deluxe Box sets from other retailers and signed up for the replacement DVDs. 

Now, according to NYA Members Page, the replacement DVDs are shipping this week.  All of these DVDs will ship from U.S. warehouse to  worldwide customers.

ok here's my assessment after 1 viewing/listening of the new audio on the WDITRB DVD :

* Fuckin' A Awesome

* This is a completely new mix to my ears - this is NOT the same audio mix as the CD or vinyl - on those the bass is much more up front than on this new DVD mix - not complaining just what I am hearing...after Harm caught the flaw & Neil agreed back in February & March, I stopped watching/listening to the DVD

* The editing in between songs seems different to me...will need to dive deeper to get into details...I love Billy's MC role!

* Fuckin' A Awesome

The “Under Construction” version of Cowgirl has to be one of my all time top cuts from the Horse. Not for the casual fan! “Has your band begin to rust,” Neil grins. The mix is a huge improvement from the first edition release. If it’s a new one altogether, even better! The laid back Ragged Glory tunes here absent from Weld make this record essential for me: Over and Over, Days That Used To Be, Country Home. Why did they never play White Line but like twice in the 70s??

ICAC: My copy arrived on 7/14 (midwest US).

Interesting to think that Neil played white line with promise of the real in a bunch of other songs originally recorded by Crazy Horse but he never played any of those songs with Crazy Horse in a live setting.
