Neil Young’s Archives Vol 1: 1963-1972 reissued on CD

8CD box set

The 8CD box set edition of Neil Young’s first Archives release is being reissued in November.

Archives Vol. I: 1963-1972 was released way back in 2009 in three variants: Blu-ray, DVD and CD. The first two came in massive vertical boxes while the cheaper 8CD edition came in a slightly weird folding outer box known as a ‘Garypak’ because it was designed by Young’s long-term art director, the late Gary Burden. Each CD within the box has its own custom sleeve (check out the video at the bottom which will make this fairly clear).

The repertoire covers the first decade of Neil Young’s career, including material from the Squires, Buffalo Springfield, Crazy Horse, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young and his early solo albums. In total, there’s 137 tracks on the eight CDs and at the time 13 of the songs had never been released before and a further 34 tracks were previously unreleased live or alternate versions. The box set comes with a 24-page booklet and a large fold-out Archives poster.

In the 14 years since Vol 1 we’ve only had one further volume, although Archives Vol 3 is expected in 2024. Anyhow Neil Young fans can’t complain about a lack of reissues, especially in recent years!

Archives Vol. I: 1963-1972 will be reissued on CD on 17 November via Reprise Records.
