Top customer reviews
the four lps here are the 4 released right after the commercial giant Harvest where Neil the artist & independent spirit said "after seeing the middle of the road, i drove into the ditch, which i find more interesting." yes, although After the Gold Rush & Harvest are good, essential easy listening Neil, the 4 lps here although not mainstream, they remain essential and accessible for the classic "Neil" vibe.
some consumers here complain that Times & Beach do not have inner sleeves for the cds but that is easily fixed by adding easily obtainable cd sleeves. the cds here roomy enough to hold the extra sleeve.
for Neil fans, these are nice & essential upgrades and for new fans, they can start with the best collection right off.
NO HDCD encoding on any of the discs, which is totally unexplained.
Keep your old CD's and wait for 'Time Fades Away" to come out on individual disc, don't give Neil Young the money for this obviously cheapo product.
I know everyone wants Time Fades Away" on CD (so do I), but make them release it alone, don;t pay $35 for 3 CD's you already have and sound just fine, and completely stay away from "8.5 - 12", no need for them whatsoever, nothing special to be had there at all.
They really should have done this right, and they didn't. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
It Looks and Feels amazing and the sound, ROCKS!
