iTunes Review

This collection chronicling Neil Young’s first decade as a musician features plenty of jaw-dropping revelations, including the previously unreleased “I Wonder” (a blueprint for the classic “Don’t Cry No Tears”) and early demos of “Sugar Mountain” and “Nowadays Clancy Can’t Even Sing.” Young’s talent is evident from the beginning. The Squires’ “I’ll Love You Forever” is a raw piece of Young melancholy folded into a traditional love ballad. “(I’m a Man And) I Can’t Cry” casts Young as a country-influenced vocalist. As Young becomes increasingly confident in the studio and live, we hear him blossom into the idiosyncratic artist who brings the world “Only Love Can Break Your Heart,” “Birds,” and “Down By the River,” all re-mastered for maximum effect.

Another painful example of irresponsibility

As a Neil Young FANATIC, I am thrilled that this music is finally available, and I only bought this version of the Archives because I was impatient to receive my Blu-Ray discs in the mail. The music is terrific, fascinating. But, it loses a star because, not only is the set incomplete, as the previous reviewer mentions, it is totally devoid of notes---not even the most basic recording dates---and this for what is one of the most carefully annotated archival collections ever released! Why not throw a few notes into the comments section? Because they think it will be profitable even if they are lazy. This is infuriating and insulting.

Not quite complete version?

The price is attractive and personally I like the format, but this iTunes version seems to be short a few tracks (4, if I'm not mistaken). Or am I missing something? And why not include the video material?

After Neil Young left the California folk-rock band Buffalo Springfield in 1968, he slowly established himself as one of the most influential and idiosyncratic singer/songwriters of his generation. Young's body of work ranks second only to Bob Dylan in terms of depth, and he was able to sustain his critical reputation, as well as record sales, for a longer period of time than Dylan, partially because of his willfully perverse work ethic. From the beginning of his solo career in the late '60s through...
