Neil Young - Archives Be Damned 2000


Neil Young
Archives Be Damned 2000
5-CD set
MP3 files @320 kbps
Artwork included

Here's another great Neil Young compilation, although much more obscure stuff here. This was another response by fans to fill the void until the oft-delayed, ever-elusive 'definitive archive' collection promised by Young finally comes out (still not released, maybe next year?). Excellent set. An essential collection for every serious Neil Young fan. Outtakes, rarities, demos, live versions. 82 tracks on 5 disks. Great companion to 'A Perfect Echo'. Whereas 'Echo' tries to compile all the best unofficial live versions of classic Neil songs, ABD2000 collects primarily the obscure, unknown, and rare song performances that many have probably not heard before.
Sound Quality varies from mediocre to excellent, but overall, very good.

Neil Young - 2008 European Summer Tour 4-CD Compilation


NEIL YOUNG
2008 European Summer Tour 4-CD Compilation (Rustbucket)
in FLAC
Artwork Included

Continuing with some great compilations of live Neil Young, Here is a more recent one, which features the best available version of every song performed on the 2008 Summer Tour, presented here in lossless FLAC files. Enjoy!

Compiler's notes:
This is a compilation of every song from the 2008 European summer festival tour. I've compared each version of every song from all the recordings I have (nearly all of them!) and picked the best version to my ears. I'm no expert on recording equipment so I have no idea what the difference is between the mics the tapers use, what quality they are or even how much they cost. I don't care as long as the end result sounds good, so I'll leave the expertise to the tapers!

A Rustbucket production!
