Like a Hurricane…the Flood of Neil Young Releases

If you happen to be a  Neil Young fan this fall is going to be fun. There are so many new releases coming out soon. First up is his autobiography, ‘Waging Heavy Peace‘ with the moved up release date of September 25. Hopefully it will be better than it’s title…

If you are bucks up there is a deluxe signed edition on Amazon for $500, but with the Amazon discount it is only $337.50. Or if you are one of the 1% and have money to burn, you can donate $1,500 to the Bridge School (totally tax deductible…like you pay taxes, rich bastards) and you will receive a personalized copy signed by Neil…I will stick to the e-reader version.

Next up on October 16 will see the DVD and Blu-ray release of Journeys. It is the latest Jonathan Demme directed Neil Young concert film. This one was filmed on Neil’s solo tour from last year called the Twisted Road. Filmed in Toronto’s iconic Massey Hall it is an up close look at Neil solo and plugged in.

And last, but in no ways least, on October 30 the new double CD from Neil Young and Crazy Horse will see the light of day. Titled Psychedelic Pill it will feature all new original material. It will also be released as a triple vinyl record set. A double CD and triple vinyl release for eight songs (and a bonus mix of the title track)…got to love that. But I don’t love the price tag for the vinyl set…87 bucks. Damn, that is just too much.

Disc One:
1 Driftin’ Back (27:36)
2 Psychedelic Pill (3:26)
3 Ramada Inn (16:49)
4 Born In Ontario (3:49)

Disc Two:
1 Twisted Road (3:28)
2 She’s Always Dancing (8:33)
3 For The Love Of Man (4:13)
4 Walk Like A Giant (16:27)

Bonus Track:
5 Psychedelic Pill (Alternate Mix)

Plus you have the second leg of the Crazy Horse tour, the Bridge School Benefit concerts and Farm Aid…and I bet you can throw in a couple of TV appearances in the mix. Gonna be a fun fall…
