Just go off a NYA Patron’s call. Neil sounds and looks happy and well.


Neil was happy to put up a Princeton Landing show and a Harvester’s concert on the timeline.

Neil reads out the Volume three disc list and some content! Its a monster:

Discs 1&2: “Across The Water”. Crazy Horse

Disc 3: “Hitching Judy” - 1976 tour solo then Crazy Horse

Disc 4: “Snapshot in Time” - audio documentary with Linda and Nicolette from ’76 ’77 practising Stars and Bars

Disc 5: “Windward Passage”. Ducks live Santa Cruz!

Disc 6: “Oceanside Countryside” 11 unreleased songs included

Disc 7: “Union Hall” rehearsal for concert with Nicolette. Includes losing end, lady wing shot, please help me I’m falling

Disc 8: “Boarding House” acoustic film

Disc 9: “Boarding House” devo sessions film!

Disc 10: “Sedan Delivery” rust never sleeps period but different tracks - bright sunny day, Cortez

Disc 11: “Coastline” - Summer 1980 - stay in power, winter winds, sunny inside

Disc 12: “Trans EP” of the vocoder only tracks and J”ohnny’s Island”- orig silver gold , raining paradise, big pearl, soul of a woman, love hotel

Disc 13: “Evolution” from 1983 - california sunset, shockingpinks stuff, hard luck stories, I got a problem, your love

Disc 14: “Touch the Night” from 1984. Crazy Horse tracks Violent Side (must be the Catalyst version!!!!), all unreleased, touch the night

Discs 15 & 16: “Grey Riders” International Harvesters from 1984 ’85 San Jose June 6 - soul of a woman , nothing is perfect, time off for good behaviour

Neil mentions that many of the discs have “Original versions” which he explains means they are first time ever recorded and the essence of the song is more pronounced

Disc 16: “Road of Plenty” - drifter, hippy dream, road of plenty (orig Eldorado), when your lonely heart breaks. No mention of 60-0 but fingers crossed

Disc 17: “Summer Songs” 1987

There are around 4/5 films. No Rusted Out Garage or Trans animation. Otherwise this will be epic. I’m particularly keen to hear original versions of the Landing on Water without the 80s production.

Neil then talked about Canary (being heavily edited). His Westcoast tour (nice to play songs after so long not performing). Roxy show (loved playing the whole albums - maybe for future live performances…)

Neil talked about the private show he did. They made a video. May be released.

Talks about Gen AI.

Neil has not discussed Mirrorball 2 with PJ. Doing things again are not for Neil. Wants to do things for the first time.

Talks about his train setup.

No future bootleg series are in the pipeline but they keep track of suggestions and how many times suggested.That’s how they will choose. Neil comments on all the help we members give NYA as Neil is too close to it and so appreciated the other opinions.

Zeke talks about music he loves. Clapton and Knopfler. Real music is a big part of his life. People that write and play their own stuff. Jimmy. Tom Waits. John Lee Hooker.

Neil talks about the amp Sal Trentino built. 1952 deluxe tweedy but Sal did not build it. 12 inch speaker. 17 watts. Sal made sure all the components were the greatest and checked out all the tubes to find the tubes that sounded the best (12AX7s, 6L6s). He made an inventory of his tubes by buying everything he can find and then testing them all as each one is analogue and unique. The Amp goes “Whoa everything is great!”. They made a mechanical device to turn the knobs electronically to saved settings.

They might be able to show pictures of all of the props from shows. Neil knows where is all is but a lot of work.

They’re going to be emptying a warehouse up north full of Neil’s stuff and looking through it to find things.

Neil is asked about his most memorable show and says, although not the most memorable, the 30 years Bobfest he played with Booker T was great and sticks out as it was an interesting show. Last Waltz was interesting too. The original Roxy and this one were a trip. TOTN sessions were highlights for Neil. Lots of highlights. Ragged Glory. Briggs. John Hanlon. Niko Bolas.

It’s good to share.


Excellent update Greying Rider! Many thanks for sharing all the details.
NYA3 is shaping up to be a real "monster", for sure. It seems as if some of "Informed Speculation" on Neil Young Archives Volume #3 that we posted on back in 2022 was pretty accurate. (Thanks LRR!)

This set is going to be incredible. Too many things to even comprehend, can't wait to go through it all very slowly.

Hope Neil actually tours Tonight's the Night, or a rotation of several albums.

I genuinely wish he'd break out a Trans track like Computer Age or Sample & Hold (Vocoder/autotune an all) at a show just one time!

Thanks for sharing the info!

By far the longest Patrons Zoom so far, I taped it and it was around 70 minutes. Terrible to hear about Sarah White being attacked whilst protesting at APEC. Neil requested a gofundme page is put up on NYA. Sarah played Sun Green in the Greendale film and on the tour.

Sometimes the patron calls seem a little stilted, like a corporate obligatory "meet the main shareholders" meeting, with curated questions slowing things down and steering the conversation down ready made paths.This one was a lot more free flowing.

What struck me most was the discussion on Sarah White. Neil was visibly animated and for a short while seemed to forget the audience when discussing with his team whether donations had been made and how quickly the gofundme link could get on the Contrarian front page, leaning forward at his web cam to make the point. It was most uplifting to see a personal response to go alongside all we know of his other philanthropic contributions.

The link's not there yet, but the top contributor to the fund is now the "Greendale Chamber of Commerce".

Also loved to to see Zeke being given some space to join in, the long technical discussion on amps (which went way over my head, but I always appreciate nerdspeak with passion).

As for Volume 3, 76-87 covers such a range of musical excursions in alien territory the possibilities of hearing so many "original versions" is pretty mindblowing.

I've been quiet for a while for various family reasons, but regularly checked in for all the debates and conversations. Thanks Thrasher and posters for keeping me sane and reminding me of the outside world.

No Rusted Out Garage DVD. Bummer, maybe I can find a bootleg copy. Would rather buy it from Neil. I have bought everything else there is to buy. Seems like a missing link in my collection. It's getting late in the game for me anyway.

I see Neil is streaming In A Rusted Out Garage on his website right now. I really like that show.

Thank You Neil. ✌️
