REPRISE REMASTERS 1970S CLASSICS FROM NEIL YOUNG
8/24/17

Weeks after announcing the release of 1976 solo recordings, Reprise has released two Neil Young boxed sets of previously released 70s material.

Picking up where Original Release Series 1-4 left off, Original Release Series 5-8 comprises four albums: 1973’s Time Fades Away, 1974’s On the Beach, and 1975’s Tonight's the Night and Zuma. Limited to 3,000 sets, the releases are available on CD and vinyl.

The second CD box, Original Release Series 8.5-12 gathers together The Stills-Young Band’s Long May You Run from 1976, 1977’s American Stars 'N' Bars, 1978’s Comes a Time, and 1979’s Rust Never Sleeps and Live Rust.

On 9/8, Reprise will release Young’s Hitchhiker, a 10-track acoustic solo album recorded in 1976 that features versions of many songs that wound up on Rust Never Sleeps.

Young’s concerns about audio quality kept many of the titles off download and streaming services for years. Certain titles spent decades out of print.

Each albums has been remastered from the original analog master studio recordings at Bernie Grundman Mastering, working with John Hanlon of Young's production team and approved by Neil.

Reprise says “the new remasters sound absolutely superior to any previous iteration and will allow the listener to hear these albums as a brand new listening experience.”

We’ll have to check that out.
