Description

Neil Young's "Official Release Series" continues with the Discs 8.5-12 limited edition 180g 6LP box set, the next collection of chronological titles which includes: 1976's Long May You Run (The Stills-Young Band); 1977's American Stars 'N Bars; 1978's Comes A Time; 1979's Rust Never Sleeps (Neil Young & Crazy Horse); and 1979's Live Rust (Neil Young & Crazy Horse). Discs 8.5-12 checks in after 1975's Zuma and follows Discs 1-4 which were issued in 2009 and Discs 5-8 which were issued in 2014.

Long May You Run served as the lone release from the short lived Stills-Young Band, featuring Neil and his old Buffalo Springfield cohort Stephen Stills splitting the songwriting duties with backing from Stills' polished session musician fitted band.

Roots rock affair American Stars 'N Bars offers a mixed bag of the many styles Young had explored on previous efforts. There's beautiful country-rock material ("The Old Country Waltz," "Star of Bethlehem"), introspective acoustic solo numbers ("Will to Love"), and extended ragers ("Like a Hurricane") plus guest appearances by Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Nicolette Larson and Crazy Horse.

Comes A Time finds Young largely returning to his lush acoustic-based Harvest sound with uplifting harmony vocals from Nicolette Larson. Tender and inspired in all the right places, it became his first Top Ten album in over half a decade.

Rust Never Sleeps features new material recorded live during Young's 1978 tour with Crazy Horse and it's split into compelling acoustic material and powerful electric numbers. The set kicks things off with the state of rock 'n' roll anthem "My My, Hey Hey (Out of the Blue)," before offering up a lovely "Pocahontas," scathing epic "Powderfinger" and closing with a rowdy reprise of "Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black)."

1978 concert recording Live Rust featuring an on fire Crazy Horse on select tracks - issued months after its spiritual guide Rust Never Sleeps - was captured at the Cow Palace in San Francisco, CA and finds Young wearing his folksinger and bandleader hats and mixing early classics and then newer material in what adds up to be one hell of a show.
