Retail edition of Neil Young’s Archives Vol II available to pre-order via UK shops

10CD box set available to pre-order via the SDE shop

Neil Young / Archives Vol II second edition

The ‘retail edition’ of Neil Young‘s much discussed Archives Vol II (1972 – 1976) 10CD box set is now available to pre-order in the UK from selected retailers, including the SDE shop.

This is of course the second volume of the Neil Young Archives box set series and this was initially offered (via Neil’s store only) as a bigger, more expensive deluxe version, limited to 3000 units, back in November. These have shipped or are shipping now. Since then, a reprint of this deluxe has been made available to pre-order with “with subtle art differences”. These second run deluxe sets won’t ship until March.

The ‘retail version’ of Archives Vol II is around £100 cheaper than the deluxe and comes with the same ten CDs, with an oversized fold-out Archives poster and a 24-page booklet. This is packaged in what Warners describe as a “cube-shaped slip-case box” which sounds similar, but is actually not the same presentation as the original archives CD box issued back in 2009. The video below illustrates the retail edition packaging.

This box set covers the productive period from 1972 through 1976; prolific era for Neil when he released several classic albums including On The Beach, Tonight’s The Night and Zuma. The box set features a total of 131 tracks of which 62 are either unreleased songs or unreleased alternate versions, different mixes, rare or live tracks.

The ten CDs, each in its own custom sleeve feature tracks from Neil Young solo, plus with bands Crazy Horse, The Stray Gators, The Santa Monica Flyers, the Stills/Young Band and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.

The 10CD retail version will be released on 5 March 2021 and is available via the SDE shop using this link or the button below. The widget shows other availability at the time of writing.
