Neil Young “Record Store Day” Vinyl Box Set Gets Delayed
Neil Young and Warner Bros.Records have announced that the release of Young’s forthcoming Neil Young Official 2 Vinyl Box Set—originally scheduled to come out on Record Store Day—will now come out in November. The delay was necessary due to several other projects Young has in the works that he wishes to focus on. The set will include the classic albums Time Fades Away, On the Beach, Tonight’s the Night and Zuma.
In other Young news, the veteran rocker recently told Rolling Stone he once used 200,000 inferior copies of his 1978 album, Comes A Time, to roof his barn. “That was because it was a mastering error,” he said. “The tape got damaged when it went through the airport or something. I had to go back and use a copy of the master--it was a copy, but it had better-sounding playback than the other one. I made a barn roof out of the [inferior LPs]. I used them as shingles.”
