• Harvest 50th Anniversary Edition Deluxe LP Box Set 

• Heart of Gold

• Journey Through The Past Releases 11/4 

• NYA Harvest 50th Anniversary Edition Hi Res Download Code 

Press release:

Young’s fourth solo album remains one of the most beloved in his catalog and is dense with songs that have long-permeated radio waves. The 50th Anniversary Edition Box Sets will be released December 2, 2022 on Vinyl and CD, boasting the original album, three studio outtakes on CD/7” vinyl, an unreleased live 1971 BBC solo performance on CD, LP and DVD.  The film Harvest Time is a previously unseen 2-hour documentary filmed in 1971, documenting the Harvest sessions.  Also included in the package is a hardbound book and fold-out poster. The vinyl box sets include a lithograph print.

Fans of the record will receive a new glimpse into Harvest through the two DVDs included in the box set. The first is Harvest Time, an unreleased two-hour film shot during the making of Harvest, with footage from Young’s ‘Harvest Barn’ sessions in Northern California, recording sessions in Nashville and London. The second is a film of the unreleased solo BBC Concert recorded on February 23, 1971. Also included are three unreleased tracks from the original Harvest sessions: “Bad Fog of Loneliness,” “Journey Through The Past,” and “Dance Dance Dance.”  Additionally, the hardbound book will include never-before-seen photos along with extensive liner notes by photographer Joel Bernstein.

I can't be the only one who thinks the three outtakes should have been added to the end of the main CD. That's what they did with Gold Rush 50, after all. Still, the bonus of the BBC CD and DVD, the other DVD, and a lush book makes this an immediate purchase.

- Three outtakes? On their own separate cd/record? Really? I guess wasting plastic is cool again?

- The BBC concert has been available on YouTube and other places on the internet for over a decade. Don't know what's "unreleased" about it.

- Harvest Time looks cool, but I'll be watching on the Archives site.

- At least it's not as insulting as the ATGR 50th anniversary release.

Greedy Hand indeed.
The two hour DVD is the only thing of interest to me.
The BBC doc has been available for years.
CD 2 is the audio of the BBC show.

$150? (some of us are saps) what does “Heart of Gold” mean in this listing?

It looks superb, I don't need another vinyl copy of Harvest but have purchased. Expensive day, also finally picked up the After The Goldrush 50 box on the Greedy Hand at £49.99.

The BBC video and audio is now being being OFFICIALLY released FROM Neil Young; which is why I’m happy to spend the money to own it. For me,The Harvest Documentary is the biggest draw with this set, and it really isn’t outrageously priced like the After The Gold Rush 50th was. The packaging looks great as well as the hardcover book too. Yet another beautiful box set to add to the ever growing collection from our uncle Neil. I just wish there were more outtakes included…..but we get what we get when it comes to Neil. I’m just grateful for anything he’s willing to share with us.

Peace 🙏

This is obviously a Massive improvement on the ATGR 50th throwaway

Not sure we need yet another early 70s solo live release (I’ll still take it though) but the Harvest Time doco will definitely get me over the line for the CD/DVD set - with all the other Neil releases this year I literally can’t afford the vinyl set (my original pressing of Harvest sounds great anyway)

I wonder how many other studio albums will get the 50th anniversary box set treatment in the future? I much prefer the format we’ve seen with Vol1 and Vol2 where a bigger period of his career is covered and presented as a whole rather than individual albums getting expanded editions but I’m sure there’s some pressure from Reprise/Warner Bros to
scrape more and more out of the archives barrel and repackage the big selling albums all over again…….

Assuming there’s no more surprises between here and the end of the year I guess the Harvest 50th will round off another big year from the Archives:

3 x solo live LPs
Noise and Flowers
Harvest box set

And a new studio album

I think if Vol3 had been released as well it would have been too much for one year!!

What will 2023 bring!!?

Vol3 looks to be pretty certain

Ragged Glory extended?
Mirrorball live?

All of audio can fit one cd.

Based on the vibe I'm getting these days from Neil and those around him, I got a feeling we're gonna be getting a WHOLE LOT of 50th anniversary reissues. I'm sure at some point, just about every recording session Neil ever recorded will be released for sale to his fans.

(not sure why this didn't publish on 1st try?)

The tag is steep but not egregiously so as the ATGR box was. The outtakes on their own disc make plenty of sense on vinyl - a 7” is a suitable presentation for 3 short tunes, and its artwork features a great photo from the barn sessions. Official audio released by NYA makes the BBC 100% worth including.

What in the world are they doing putting out DVDs when it could be blu-ray? The lower quality relegates them to bonus discs. And buying this album on CD is a real step down from the now-ubiquitous hi-res streaming or the entirely analog experience of the LPs. But the $50 asking price is reasonable considering all the legendary music and extras within. This release is a fine gift for the fan who grew up with the record but never got into the weeds (ditch?) of the catalog, and wouldn’t be delving into the completism of the Archives but would enjoy revisiting that time in an expanded fashion.

The vinyl set would be an especially lovely present for a new fan who would be getting Harvest for the first time. For those of us who have heard it all by now, the availability of BBC audio will be a sweet stream, and the unseen comprehensive film of Harvest Time will be a must play on the Hearse/Movietone screen, no additional dollars required.

Hearing this fully developed Heart Of Gold on the heels of the wealth of bootleg and performance series concerts from the preceding tour has been a bit of thrill. The flavor of the acoustics is quite different in the BBC setting, and the singer’s mood is subdued and refined at this stage. I don’t recall Out On The Weekend ever being done like this; by the time it went on the road for what became the TFA tour, the Stray Gators we’re rocking the full band version. A budget-priced, stand-alone BBC LP at some point would be a welcome addition to the shelves.
