New Neil Young & Crazy Horse Album - COLORADO

Well this is a first, we are focusing on Neil Young for our Masters Series this month, and he comes out and announces a new record due out in October.

Not just any new release, COLORADO is a Crazy Horse record and Nils Lofgren is back in the mix after a very long time. Needless to say we are very excited to hear the new album. Their last Psychedelic Pill was surprisingly solid, even if Americana was a huge let down, but as the positive people we are here at RtBE we have high hopes for this one. Here is Uncle Neil's announcement as well as a plug for his Album of the Week series which focuses on Tonight's The Night, an album that made our Top Studio Albums round up of Neil:
The first track from COLORADO, our next Crazy Horse album, is coming out this month. Billy, Ralphie, Nils and I are all very happy to bring this song ‘Rainbow of Colors’ to you in all its ragged glory, as my original producer and life-long friend, the late David Briggs once said. 113 new songs ranging from around 3 minutes to over 13 minutes, will be coming your way. We hope you love this new album as much as we do.
I have been continuing our work on `Mountaintop Sessions’, the documentary film about the making of COLORADO. It is a wild one folks, no holds barred. You will see the whole process just as it went down! Worts and all! I don’t think a film about this subject with the openness and intensity we have captured has ever been seen. You can be the judge of that, because Shakey Pictures’ `Mountaintop Sessions’ masterfully shot by cinematographer C.K. Vollick, will be released in over mo theaters world-wide the week our album COLORADO debuts, in October.
Made for you in double Vinyl, (three sides plus a 7″ exclusive two-sided single not on the album) will be released, along with CD and streaming versions of COLORADO.
This week on Wednesday, ‘Tonight’s the Night’ will be the album of the week. Watch for a never before seen video, featuring the camera of David Briggs! It will be released in the NYA Times-Contrarian for your viewing, along with an ‘Album of the Week’ story I have written for you. With the 12-minute ‘Tonight’s the Night’ video and that story, you should have a more clear look at ‘Tonight’s the Night’ than you have ever had in the history of this recording! I know it was a long time ago, almost 5o years, but Im still here and it is still so fresh in my mind. That’s what this Archive is about, bringing it home to you. I love the music, the way we played it and what it was about, as well as all the great people who were part of making it. Maybe you are one of them. I hope you love it like I do, along with the good people at Reprise! ny
Until the first track is released later this month, here is some recent Horse to get pumped up for COLORADO
