I'll join the chorus of disappointment over this set. The "48 unreleased tracks" are almost all alt. mixes or live versions of well known songs or very early demos (which frankly aren't that interesting after one listen). Even more disturbing is that much of the live stuff has already been released on the "Live at the Fillmore", "Massey Hall", etc, sets which ANYBODY who's even remotely comtemplating buying this (very) expensive set will likely have, which sadly indicates that Neil shows a great deal of contempt for his core audience. Alright the DVD, blue-ray discs (which are off the scale price-wise by the way) supposedly have alot of "priceless" video clips but these will migrate onto YouTube over the coming months no doubt and much of the extra material on these expanded sets is described as "chatter" probably much like the stuff that almost makes the "Massey Hall" set unbearable after a couple of listens (I eventually i-pod'ed this set and edited out the chatter), if that is the case; "thanks Neil". After all the hype and gratuitous delays it is a huge disppointment with probably no more than 2-3 "genuinely" new tracks of interest from his '68-'72 salad days. Having said that I'm not surprised since his albums from the late '70s were very spotty and if he had numerous quality "trunk" songs I'm pretty sure he'd of used them then when his inspiration was running dry and indeed he did to some extent on 'American Star'n'Bars' not that it helped that album rise above being merely "adequate".Read more ›

Having read a lot of negative reviews about this box set, I had to think really hard before buying this. I own most of the early NY albums on vinyl - all early pressings in excellent condition. I also own 'DECADE' on CD and the recent archive CDs. So this was a tough decision....

After buying and listening to it, I can safely say that as far sound and remastering is concerned, the Archives version is absolutely stunning. Most reviewers are overlooking the fact that this is best sounding NY you will ever own. I was blown away when I put on the disc that covers the 'After the Gold Rush' period' (titled Topanga 3) - this disc alone is worth the price of admission.

So if you are having any second thoughts - it doesn't matter whether you are a hard core fan or a novice - this is some of the finest sounding music you will ever hear. Great work, Neil !!!

Lets think about this, Neil Young has decided to present his lifes work in a series of box sets BEFORE he dies, so as to avoid a shameless load of record company releases of dubious merit.

You get therefore, a journey through his music in a way that he wants to present it, incoporating remastered standard versions, new alternate mixes, unreleased stuff etc set out to mark his musical journey from a to ?.

He could have just remastered the albums you already have like The Stones just have, no unreleased stuff at £10 quid a go for the 3rd time in the last 20 years.

Or done a Beatles, stuck em all in a big box and again, no unreleased stuff, just remastered at £160 per box, or if you want the unreleased MONO set add a further £200 per box. Or again , buy them indivdually at a tenner a go.

I prefer Neil's way..great to hear old stuff sounding better than ever, new stuff , rare stuff all mixed up, showing his growth, (Disc 1 is amazing , in 5 years he went from surf instrumentals to "Broken Arrow")..Only fault is the decision to release two live shows before the box set and NOT make it crystal clear that they were gonna be included on Archives, hence the lost 5th Star.

But this is great music and has been lovingly compiled,, so you pays your money and you makes your choice....

10 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Ian Williams TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 3 July 2009
Format: Audio CD
The four stars is for the music and I'm feeling generous. No doubt there's a lot of wonderful stuff here but there's a fair bit that isn't

The earliest tracks are basically juvenilia. Neil isn't even trying to find his voice, though he does manage to find Hank Marvin's. But no-one with any sense expected it to be otherwise; they are an historical curio and that's about it. Once we get past those and the Buffalo Springfield material we start to find the real Neil Young even then there are a number of so-so songs. But then there are also a lot of the great ones too. I suppose the big disappointment is that there are no unheard of unreleased gems. Bruce Springsteen could issue a massive box set of unreleased brilliant material but not, it would appear, our Neil.

However, my biggest grouch, my only real one to be honest, isn't the music, it's the presentation and the cost.

Basically it's a disgustingly shoddy package for the price.

A long box which folds into two to reveal four discs in each compartment. Anyone care to guess how long it will be before the hinge splits and we're left with two smaller boxes? Mine is starting to tear already.

Then's there's bits of adhesive from the binding which has got onto the discs themselves. (I got my copy from the States, if the UK box wasn't produced there, you may not find this.) It doesn't stop the CDs from playing perfectly but it doesn't look very good. But then neither do the cheapo individual CD cases themselves -a bit cardboard with just the disc and nothing to protect it.

As for documentation, there's this pointless long sheet of paper with a handwritten list of titles on the top of files.
