The four remaining Neil Young studio albums that have never been issued on CD will finally be unveiled in that format next month. “On the Beach,” “American Stars ‘N Bars,” “Hawks & Doves,” and “Re.ac.tor” will be released June 24 via Reprise. The albums, which have been out of print in any form for years and heavily bootlegged, have been digitally remastered but do not include any bonus tracks.
As with all Neil Young reissue projects, the credulous are advised not to hold their breath. None of these are essential to the casual listener, but each has some reward (besides “completeness”) for the Neil Young fan. (Now we can redouble our whining for “Time Fades Away”…)Powered by Sidelines
