Neil Young to issue three Official Bootleg Series releases

All available on CD and vinyl

There’s no sign of any let up in Neil Young’s current reissue/release productivity, with the announcement of three new albums in his ‘Official Bootleg Series’.

These are Royce Hall, 1971, a solo acoustic gig which was recorded on 30 January of that year on the UCLA (University of California) campus; Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, 1971, another solo acoustic performance and the last US show of his 1971 solo tour; and, perhaps most excitingly, Citizen Kane Jr. Blues (Live at The Bottom Line), an On The Beach-heavy set from New York City, 1974.

‘Revolution Blues’ from Citizen Kane Jr. Blues (Live at The Bottom Line)

If you are wondering about the audio quality, the message from the label is that “where analogue tape exists in Young’s archive, these concerts have been mixed properly, providing much higher quality recordings than have previously existed”.

This is the case for both Royce Hall and Dorothy Chandler Pavilion 1971 (i.e. they are both from the original analogue masters). If no tape exists, the original bootleg has been restored and remastered to make it sound as good as possible. This as is the case with Citizen Kane Jr. Blues (Live at The Bottom Line). Songs from all three releases are on this post.

‘Don’t Let It Bring You Down’ from Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, 1971

The original bootleg artwork has also been replicated wherever possible, offering a bit of amateurish authenticity which conjures the era they were first created in. These either looks really cool or a bit rubbish, depending on your point of view…

All three albums will be released on vinyl and CD on 6 May 2022 via Reprise Records.
