Neil Young announced on the Neil Young Archives that he's launching a bootleg series of his own, where he'll take the famous concert bootlegs out there and officially release them with the actual master recordings.
Young prefaced the announcement by acknowledging the I’m So Happy That Y’all Came Down bootleg that was illegally released in 1971 under the bootleg label Rubber Dubber. The acoustic show was recorded by an audience member on Feb. 1, 1971 at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles. Fans can likely expect that bootleg as one of the first releases of the series.
Young plans on using all of the original art from the bootlegs except the audio will be largely improved. He wrote, “We are going full bore with our series right now, so write letters in to me with your favorite bootlegs and we will find them and use the best audio we can locate, either from the NYA vaults or somewhere else.”
While there is no official release information, Young promises that the series will launch soon.
