Brand New — Sealed Remastered Reissue Of An Absolutely Essential Neil Young LP On Quality 180 Gram Vinyl. Includes Inner Sleeve. Rock And Roll Is Here To Stay…
Neil Young Archives Official Release Series – NYA ORS 11. Remastered for vinyl from the original master tapes by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering, Hollywood CA.
While the base material on the record is taken from concerts, ‘Rust Never Sleeps’ is not really a live record (a proper document, ‘Live Rust,’ and its film would arrive in late 1979). Much of the crowd noise, with the exception of the opening and closing, acoustic/electric takes on the song, “Hey Hey, My My” has been edited out. There was also a high degree of overdubbing and studio polishing, as well as the addition of two songs that were first put to tape much earlier; the 1975 cut “Pocohantas” and “Sail Away” from the ‘Comes a Time’ sessions. ‘Rust Never Sleeps’ went on to become one of the most celebrated and important records in rock and roll. The sludgy, overdriven wall of crushing guitar noise that permeates the album’s iconic second side has inspired a multitude of artists who have followed in Young’s wake to crank things up past 11. In the decades to follow, it even helped earn him the title of “Godfather of Grunge.”
