Neil Young, the reluctant godfather of grunge, is a well-worn 72 years old, but still producing new music and still wanting you to listen to music in the best possible music format. Don’t get him going on mp3’s!
Friday, he’s releasing his latest studio album, The Visitor, with Promise of the Real backing him. The other big news for Neil fans is his long-talked-about online archive. Log on to NeilYoungArchives.com and enjoy “unprecedented access” to hear his songs and music – the entire catalog – in the best possible audio quality.
And the NYA has more than just his music. You can view his film work and info on his recordings, plus photos and other rock memorabilia. It’ll be free until June 30, after that, they’ll charge a “modest fee,” according to Young. He’s even produced a 10 minute “how to” video to tutor you into getting around the site.
