Okay, this is a piece of naked self-publicity but I thought Public Address readers may be interested to read the very big review of the new Neil Young Archives 1 (1963-1972) box set posted at Elsewhere.
This is the first of the box sets to come from Neil’s trawl through his vaults which he’s been promising for decades. But you may want to read about it before you start abusing your credit card to the tune of around $180. (And that’s just for the cheapest version.)
That necessarily lengthy consideration (it's eight CDs, count 'em!) is posted at Elsewhere right now -- and there is also what I guess is the first New Zealand review of the new Sonic Youth album The Eternal (it was posted yesterday which may have made among the first in the world) as well as lots of other reviews (the new Costello, Fat Freddys, St Vincent, the Checks etc) at Music From Elsewhere.
There is more stuff too like just about every Rolling Stones studio album assessed, and maybe a few new Essential Elsewhere albums you need in your collection which have been added since you last looked also.
Oh, and they come with sample tracks and videos.
But I’ll let you discover that for yourself.
And I won’t even mention the Recipes from Elsewhere or all the other reviews, articles etc etc.
Okay, you can un-mute now, the ads have finished. Enjoy the programme!
