    I had never heard that performance before. I'm completly blown away now and feel knocked out.

    That was a slice of heaven. Thanks Bud. I am completely stoked for this bad little puppy! Looks like the wait is going to be more than worth it.

    That is an AWESOME clip!
  6. I just watched the LIVE AT MASSEY DVD and am not quite blown away.

    Not sure what this footage was filmed on but it seems to me like they've done some extra work adding a grain to the film to make it seem more "archival".

    Between the songs there is black & white stock footage of the outside of Massey and the streets of Toronto, also some colour footage from Neil's ranch. All of this is extremely grainy amd I wonder if they treated the concert footage so that its texture would match with this.

    I think I'll hold of on Massey Hall if it's going to be in the box. I could probably sell Fillmore easily and sit tight until years' end. :sigh:

    I'm looking forward to the CD..I'm not a DVD guy...I find it hard to "watch" concerts on the tube..YMMV..

    That's already on a Music Scene DVD. But it's edited as aired. I think there's an unedited version around, and that would be nice to have.

    (p.s. Shadygrove..your avatar scares me.;) every see the movie 'Armacord"?:D )

    What is the "Riverboat Stuff"? I'm not familiar with this.

    The Riverboat was a famous folkie club in Toronto. (cf. "Ambulance Blues")

    Neil has been talking about those shows for the past several years. He did his first series of solo shows there in February 1969. The recording of "Sugar Mountain" is from one of those shows.

    Isn't this from Canterbury House in Ann Arbor?

    You're right. I've seen Riverboat listed as the source but that must be wrong since the label on the single says "Recorded Live At The Canterbury House".

    It's also mentioned in the Decade liner notes. Same era and similar venue (although Massey Hall is larger)

    are you a record company marketing guy?

    'ever have to buy again', thats funny!

    (not making fun of you here, this is pointed at the industry and what the tell the consumer)

    a friend of mine heard October 23rd as a release date.
    might be too early for a date that far away.. and just a rumor.

    Like Live at the Fillmore, my local Best Buy has the CD/DVD at the same price as the DVD ($14.99). It's a misprice and I know I should have told them but .....

    don't bring it to their attemtion. :agree:

    i bought gram parsons' reprise sessions last summer and the sticker said $11.99 :bigeek:

    i figured "here's a screw up...if it rings for something more then i'll tell them i won't buy it unless they sell it as the sticker advertises". sure enough, it rang as $11.99 + tax :angel:

    Sorry if this question has already been asked, but . . . considering that some of Neil Young's recent audio releases have also been released in hi-res 96/24 audio on standard DVDs (I'm thinking of the Greatest Hits, Filmore and the upcoming Massey Hall releases), is there any possibility that the Archives set would be released that way as well? It's well known that Neil isn't happy with the sound of red book CD, so it would seem a little strange for him to make the audio recordings available only on CD.

    good question, it appears that Massey Hall and Fillmore East will be part of the Archives box, but only on cd? or on cd/dvd like the individual releases?

    I was gonna sell off my individual releases, now you've got me thinking.......
