Neil Young's "A Letter Home" Coming Back as Deluxe Package
2013 | April 24 | rollingstone.com

New set will include alternate takes, vinyl discs and making-of DVD

By Andy Greene

Neil Young's lo-fi covers record A Letter Home was quietly released on vinyl through Jack White's label Third Man Records just in time for Record Store Day last week, but on May 27th it's coming back in a deluxe package that will include a CD, a download card, a making-of DVD and two vinyl records. The limited edition set will retail for $109.98, but a basic CD version will also be offered for $13.99.

A Letter Home - which features acoustic renditions of Bob Dylan's "Girl From The North Country," Willie Nelson's "On The Road Again" and many other classics - was recorded at Third Man Records on a refurbished 1947 Voice-O-Graph recording booth. "Imagine a very simple recording studio not much larger than a phone booth and you'll get the idea," reads a press release. "Recorded live to track to one-track, mono, the album has an inherent warm, primitive feel of a vintage Folkways recording."

The deluxe edition of the album will also have a 32-page booklet and seven 6" clear vinyl discs, one of which features an alternate take on Willie Nelson's "Crazy."

Young also released a video for his cover of Bert Jansch's "Needle of Death" for those who wish to see the Voice-O-Graph recording booth in action.

Young recently wrapped up a solo acoustic North American tour at at the Chicago Theater. The shows centered mostly around Young's early work, and featured the first live performance of the Rust Never Sleeps deep cut "Thrasher" since 1978. He heads to Europe in July for a tour with Crazy Horse.

Neil Young to Europe and New Album Recorded
2013 | December 5 | swp.de and bad-news-beat.org

The German newspaper SÜDWEST PRESSE says Neil Young and Crazy Horse will schedule a concert in Ulm, Germany on the 20.07.2014. Tickets go on sale next Tuesday and prices are from 69.90 to 89,90 Euro.

Scott Sandie from the Neil Young Appreciation Society is reporting that Neil Young’s next album was recorded in Jack White’s record booth. According to Scott: "Confirmation that Neil's next album was recorded in Jack White's record booth. It should be out sometime in the new year. I don't know its release details but would be surprised if it's only available via Third Man. But this is Neil, so who knows. I anticipate this will be a very big seller. It is an album of covers. In it, as anticipated, he pays tribute to other renowned singer-songwriters. There are 12 tracks on it. There are no Neil Young originals, but...each side starts with an introduction (part 1, part 2) of the same title. That could be a Neil Young original although I have another theory on what these might be... A couple of the songs chosen will astonish you. Sorry for the secrecy but more on this might leak soon..."

Local stars celebrate Crosby, Stills and Nash in EMP fete
2013 | November 22 | seattletimes.com

The finale at this year’s Experience Music Project Founders Award tribute to Crosby, Stills and Nash could not have been more predictable, but it was also appropriate — and magical. EMP’s annual Founders Award raises money for the museum’s youth programs, and each year Paul Allen handpicks a superstar act to honor at the big-ticket gala. Past honorees have included Carlos Santana, Buddy Guy and Ann and Nancy Wilson.

This year’s event Thursday night was the best Founders ceremony yet, perhaps because CSN’s folk rock sensibility fits so perfectly with the current crop of Seattle musicians who toasted them. Over two hours, a dozen local stars — along with visitors like Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Jason Mraz and Shawn Colvin — played their favorite CSN songs. Usually tribute shows lag, but this one started great and got better.

The Head and the Heart seemed like a perfect fit early in the bill, and it was. Their take on “Simple Man” was sublime and drew rousing applause. Pete Droge and Elaine Summers did a moving “Our House” which ended, appropriately, with a photograph of their own home.

Sean Nelson chose to go deep for a Byrds’ song, “Everybody has Been Burned.” Backed by a crack house band (including guitar whiz Ian Moore) it had a biting energy. John Roderick took on “Southern Cross,” and pulled off the difficult vocal shifts.

But the musical highlight of the evening came with Brandi Carlile’s show-stopping performance of “Long Time Gone.” She sang it as if she were Janis Joplin mixed with Joni Mitchell, and it was just the right mix of rough and sweet.

It wasn’t just Carlile who made the song come alive — Stephen Stills came onstage to play guitar, and proved that he still has incredible chops. In his remarks, Paul Allen noted that EMP had been inspired by Jimi Hendrix, but “as an aspiring guitarist, I was pretty interested in Stephen’s playing. He’s a killer guitarist.” Allen is right.

Allen cited CSN’s harmony singing and songwriting, but also their ability to tackle political issues. Dan Rather had been at the event early on, as he’s profiling CSN for a television special. Krist Novoselic was also present, and played accordion in the lobby.

When Crosby, Stills and Nash finally took the stage themselves, Nash said, “I can’t tell you how special it is to hear musicians we respect doing songs we wrote.” All three members thanked the crowd, and Stills joked that winning awards was a sign they had gotten old.

In a fitting move, it was a group of young musicians — Vuga De, from EMP’s youth programs — who presented CSN their actual award. That was a perfect set up for the finale, which anyone who knew anything about CSN’s catalog could see coming.

The Founders Award celebration raises thousands of dollars that go to music education programs. If there’s an unofficial theme song to those efforts it must be CSN’s “Teach Your Children.” So on that classic, CSN was joined by a dozen Seattle musicians. It was a touching, and perfect way to end a special night.

Neil Young Confirms Carnegie Hall Dates
2013 | November 8 | rttnews.com

Neil Young has confirmed a string of dates at New York's famed Carnegie Hall early next year. The rock legend will appear at the venue on January 6, 7, 9 and 10, marking his only announced tour dates of 2014.
Despite Neil's wide open touring schedule next year, he was busy this fall with his annual Bridge School Benefit on Oct. 26, which streamed live via YouTube this year. Young was joined by Crosby, Stills & Nash, Arcade Fire, Queens of the Stone Age, My Morning Jacket, Jack Johnson, fun., Heart, Jenny Lewis, Elvis Costello and Diana Krall."
Neil came up with the acoustic format idea," Pegi Young, Neil's wife, told Rolling Stone of the long-running benefit. "It was genius. Nobody was doing that at the time. This is before MTV Unplugged or any of that. It keeps costs down, and it took artists outside their comfort zone. Looking back, that first concert was an exercise in simplicity compared to what it is these days."

David Crosby Reveals Details on Solo Tour and CSNY 1974 Live Package
2013 | November 7 | rollingstone.com

David Crosby knows that a solo tour isn't his best career move from a business perspective, but he's hitting the road anyway this January to support his upcoming LP Croz. "I'm not going to make any money from this tour," he says. "Not a dime. Busses are hideously expensive, so instead I'm going to do short residences in five cities, staying in each place for a few days where we can work in fine brush strokes and try to do nuances and the best work we can possibly do.

Crosby is convinced that the long-awaited box set from their 1974 reunion tour will finally come out. "It should come out in March or April, something like that," he says. "It got pushed back for good reason. We're gonna put a DVD with it. We have pieces from about eight separate shows."

There is a complete film of their tour-closing marathon show at London's Wembley Stadium, but don't expect that to make it onto the package. "Nope," says Crosby. "We were a little too jittery that night."

Neil Young to Release
2013 | October 23 | artistdirect.com

The Canadian singer and songwriting treasure will release Live at the Cellar Door, the latest in his Archives Performance Series, on November 26 on Reprise Records.

Here's the critical intel about the record.

The album collects recordings made during Young's intimate six-show solo stand at The Cellar Door in Washington D.C. between November 30 and December 2, 1970, a few months after Reprise released his classic third solo album After the Gold Rush in August.It's certainly a "must own" for collectors, classic rockers and Young fans.

Of the many unique gems found on Live at the Cellar Door, a rare solo version of "Cinnamon Girl" performed on piano rather than guitar is a particular treasure for Neil fans; the full band version appears on Young's 1969 second solo album Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere.

Live at the Cellar Door features early, raw performances of songs that wouldn't appear until subsequent Young albums, including the rarity "Bad Fog off Loneliness" (which appears on Live at Massey Hall '71 - released in 2007-- but was previously unreleased until the studio band version was included on Archives Vol. 1 1963-1972) and "Old Man" (released two years later on 1972's Harvest album). "Down by the River," also from Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, rounds out the spectacular set.

As with Young's previous releases in the Archives series, Live at the Cellar Door will be released digitally, on CD, and on 180-gram vinyl.

Track Listing:

Side One:
Tell Me Why
Only Love Can Break Your Heart
After The Gold Rush
Expecting to Fly
Bad Fog of Loneliness
Old Man
Birds

Side Two:
Don\'t Let It Bring You Down
See the Sky About to Rain
Cinnamon Girl
I Am a Child
Down by the River
Flying on the Ground Is Wrong

Neil Young to be honoured during Grammy week
2013 | October 18 | wenn.com

Neil Young is set to be feted by officials at the Recording Academy Producers and Engineers Wing.
The revered musician will follow in the footsteps of previous honourees Jimmy Iovine and Quincy Jones in January, when he is celebrated for his "commitment to excellence and ongoing support for the art and craft of recorded music".
A statement from Recording Academy President/CEO Neil Portnow reads, "It is with great honour that we pay tribute to a musical icon who has been tireless in his own efforts to draw attention to the importance of hearing music as the artists who created it intended, and who has continually set precedents of excellence within the music community.
"The contributions of Neil Young are innumerable, as is his incomparable body of work, and we look forward to an unforgettable evening with this legendary artist."
The seventh annual ceremony will take place at Village Studios in Los Angeles in the week leading up to the 2014 Grammy Awards.
This will not be the first time Young has been feted by the Recording Academy - in 2010 he was named 2010 MusiCares Person of the Year and honoured with a tribute concert featuring performances by Elton John, Wilco and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Nash's Book "Wild Tales: A Rock & Roll Life" Out Today
2013 | September 17 | billboard.com

Graham Nash has just one concern about his frank and revealing autobiography Wild Tales: A Rock & Roll Life which publishes today. "The one person I was most worried about the reaction was (David) Crosby," Nash tells Billboard. He credits Crosby with "saving my life" by encouraging him to leave the Hollies in 1968 to work with Crosby and Stephen Stills, and "Wild Tales" doesn't pull any punches in talking about their friendship -- including Crosby's long and debilitating battle with drugs.
"I really didn't care to think about all the shit that Crosby put me through," Nash says. "You just have to deal with it and let it go. But it's all still in my mind, sharp as a needle. So I was concerned about what he thought, but he called me and said, 'I read it. Everything is true, everything you said is how it was. I did that. I did put you guys through all that madness.' So Crosby was totally fine with it, which pleased me. I care deeply about he thinks."Nash is equally open about other relationships in his life -- including with Stills, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Mama Cass Elliott and a father who was jailed for theft when Nash was young -- but he hopes that "Wild Tales'" tone doesn't come off as kiss-and-tell."I'm a positive man, and though there's some awful things that have happened to me and I had to talk about them, I don't want to piss anybody off anymore," Nash explains. "I just tried to put it in my voice, just tell people what the fuck happened to me."And when he finished, Nash adds, "I got to the end of the manuscript and I looked down and I thought, 'Fuck! I wish I was him. You know me; I don't look backwards. I don't rest on my laurels. I don't give a shit about stuff I did 30 years ago. What's the point? But in looking back over my life in one piece, it was stunning to even me what I've done in my life. And, you know, there's a thousand more stories. I didn't want a 700-page book, y'know? So I had to leave a lot of stuff out."So "Wild Tales, Vol. 2?" "From your mouth to God's ear," Nash says with a chuckle.Meanwhile, the two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer is moving forward on a number of other creative fronts. He's in the midst of a solo tour and also has photographic exhibitions opening in London, New Jersey and Boston. He has 36 new songs written and hopes to make a new Crosby, Stills & Nash album happen soon, although he notes that "we simply don't have time to get in the fucking studio!" The trio will reunite with Young, however, for the 27th annual Bridge School Benefit concerts on Oct. 26-27 in Mountain View, Calif., which Nash hopes will lead to something even more extensive."It's not been spoken, but it's certainly in the air," he says. "When Neil goes, 'Hey Willy, you guys want to do the Bridge?,' I know what he means. He wants to hear us. He wants to know if we're singing good. Why? Just for the six songs at the Bridge? No, I think Neil is thinking (about) next year -- but that's only my opinion."

Graham Nash Hints At the Possibility Of A CSNY Reunion Tour
2013 | September 10 | pastemagazine.com

Graham Nash’s upcoming solo tour and memoir release, The Hollies founder and one quarter of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young hinted that a CSNY reunion tour could be in the works.
The supergroup already confirmed that they’ll be reuniting for the first time in over seven years at a benefit for Neil Young’s Bridge School in Mountain View, Calif. on Oct. 26 and 27. A subsequent 2014 tour has been rumored, but Nash’s comments confirm just how real the possibility of a number 40th anniversary dates next year could be.
“Neil called me a few weeks ago and asked if CSN would be willing to do a benefit concert with him for the Bridge School in October,” Nash told WSJ. “Neil doesn’t like wasting words. When he asks about us playing together, he’s really saying: ‘Come on up here and let’s see how we sound. Maybe we can do something later.’ If it feels good when we play as a group, I’m sure it will be the four of us next year.”
Nash and Young seem to be game, but David Crosby might be the most enthusiastic of the quartet in regard to the prospect of putting together one last tour. In June, he closed a piece he wrote for WSJ by figuring that he probably has 10 years left to live and that his dream would be for one final tour with CSNY. “From there, I’d be fine,” he wrote. “I’d be able to sail. I’d live. And I’d be happy.”

Neil Young’s Pono Audio To Launch Next Year
2013 | September 5 | stereogum.com

until Young releases it to really get an idea. In his words:
"Are you sick of over-compressed MP3s, but not willing to climb FLAC Mountain? Well, Neil Young may have something even better planned for next year. Young’s PONO Audio is finally launching in early 2014, according to a post on the company’s Facebook page. According to Young, this is the best possible format because PONO restores the sound to the way it was in the studio. Obviously, words can be limiting in describing how something actually sounds so we’ll have to wait Hearing PONO for the first time is like that first blast of daylight when you leave a movie theater on a sun-filled day. It takes you a second to adjust. Then you enter a bright reality, of wonderfully rendered detail.
This music moves you. So you can feel. That’s why so many musicians are behind PonoMusic – this is important work that honors their art. This is the way they wanted you to hear their music.
Sounds exciting, and barring any delays we’ll get to hear how PONO sounds relatively soon. Now let’s just hope that Young’s million dollar electric car breaking down in the desert last week wasn’t some sort of omen for what’s to come.

The Rides will embark on a world tour beginning in September
2013 | May 9 | jambands.com

Stephen Stills, guitarist Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Electric Flag keyboardist Barry Goldberg have formed the new all-star blues-rock group The Rides. The multi-generational outfit’s debut album, Can’t Get Enough, is set for CD, digital, and vinyl release August 27 on 429 Records. Featuring four co-written originals, a handful of covers, and a vintage, previously unrecorded Stills number, Can’t Get Enough was inspired by—and is an homage to—the now-classic 1968 album Super Session. That album featured Stills on guitar on one side, and the late Mike Bloomfield (Bloomfield founded Electric Flag with Goldberg, who also played on Super Session alongside Blood, Sweat & Tears keyboardist Al Kooper).
The Rides will embark on a world tour beginning in September.

2013 | May 1 | vintagevinylnews.com

Add the upcoming 1974 live album by Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young to the long list of CSN projects that will be out "someday."
Scheduled for August 27, the document of the groups 1974 tour is now pushed out until 2014. Graham Nash told ABC Radio News that there are two reasons for the delay.
"We were gonna bring it out in August, but next year is the 40th anniversary of the tour, and so I'm gonna wait for spring of next year.
"You gotta understand, our shows were three or four hours long and there are four of us and we were all writing like crazy. I just found a one-minute, 10-second song of Neil Young's about Richard Nixon that I can't leave off. It's brilliant…So, my point is, I'm still forming and shaping the album."
For those disappointed by the delay, know that the wait may be worth it as the release should contain around 38 songs.

CSNY To Release Long-Awaited 1974 Live Album In August
2013 | April 17 | rollingstone.com

After years of work, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young are finally gearing up to release a live album from their 1974 reunion tour. "It's going to come out August 27th," Graham Nash tells Rolling Stone. "It's going to fuckin' stun people. We only multi-tracked eight or nine shows from the tour, and we've chosen the best from those gigs. We've had to do a little tuning, but not that much . . . But the spirit of the band! If I take myself out the band and look at it, it was a fuckin' great band.
David Crosby shares his bandmate's excitement. "I am one of the most egotistical people on this planet," he says with a laugh. "But the legend looms larger! You have to remember that in 1974, the Beatles were over and the Stones were playing a completely different kind of music. When I hear this shit, I think, for a moment we were probably the best band. It's startlingly good."

Graham Nash: Life on the Road
2013 | March 17 | proud.co.uk

Proud Camden is pleased to present Graham Nash: Life on the Road; a collection of rock ‘n’ roll portraits taken by musician, photographer and political activist Graham Nash. Including images of his musical muses, acquaintances and closest collaborators, this intimate series features Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, David Crosby and other 70s greats.
While best known as a founding member of ‘The Hollies’ and later ‘Crosby, Stills and Nash’; Nash also developed a parallel career as a photographer, collector, and pioneer of digital imaging alongside his music and has produced three photography publications of his own and other’s work.
Shot between 1969 and 2003, this exhibition of Nash’s photographs includes revealing portraits of family and friends, images of life on the road, still lifes and landscapes, street photographs, and a unique series of self-portraits.
Nash has said of photography: “I sense the very same energy in photography that I find in music. Through these rock ’n’ roll photos we are conveying what is so difficult to put intos words: how the spirit of rock ’n’ roll is mainly an attitude; an attitude of ‘get out of my way, I have something to say here.’ Whether you’re a country singer, a pop, rock, blues, or gospel singer, it makes little difference to the unceasing eye of the camera.”Proud Camden is thrilled to host Nash’s candid and often striking collection. See Neil Young driving into a distant landscape, Joni Mitchell lost in rapture to a melody and the photographer himself in various experimental self-portraits. The ultimate visual experience for Graham Nash fans.Dates: 3rd April 2012 – 19th May 2013
Address: The Horse Hospital Stables Market Chalk Farm Road, London, NW1 8AH

Stephen Stills Returned To Sunset Strip - Update
2013 | January 19 | thesunsetstrip.com

Influential musician and singer/songwriter Stephen Stills returned to his Sunset Strip roots to sign a Gibson GuitarTown art guitar celebrating the music and influence of Buffalo Springfield. Stills wrote one of the band's biggest hits, "For What It's Worth," which became an anthem for the 1960s counterculture movement and remains an important and influential song today.
Buffalo Springfield formed on The Sunset Strip in 1967 and was comprised of Stills, Neil Young, Richie Furay, Doug Hastings, Bruce Palmer, Dewey Palmer and Jim Messina. While the band was only active for just over two years, they produced three influential and important albums during this time and became one of the most influential American folk-rock bands, shaping the California rock sound.
The art guitar was created by local Los Angeles artist Juliana Martinez and features mosaic tile with symbols that are tied to the band and the song, "For What It's Worth.""I tried to include identifiable images on the guitar," noted Martinez. "The peace flag speaks for itself, but there are also maple leaves on a white background, in homage to Canadian Neil Young. There is a large bluebird, the name of one of their hits. The flower border can also be found around the perimeter of their second album, Buffalo Springfield Again."The Buffalo Springfield-inspired "For What It's Worth" guitar is currently on display on The Sunset Strip's 'west entrance', near BOA Steakhouse. This guitar, along with all other 2012 GuitarTown on The Sunset Strip guitars, will be auction for charity next month.Note from 4WaySite: It should be Dewey Martin and not Dewey Palmer.
