Neil Young's archive is back on track for a Blu-ray release.  Young originally announced early in 2008 that he would be releasing his entire life's work on Blu-ray in volumes.  Just a short time ago, it was announced that the Young Blu-ray release was postponed, maybe indefinitely.

But now, Young has given us the first concrete details on his first volume.  First, it is scheduled for release on February 24, 2009 by Warner Music Group.  The set will include 10 Blu-ray discs with at least 128 tracks.  This will include 43 unreleased songs as well as 13 never before heard songs.

The first volume will also contain two full albums: "Live at the Fillmore East" and "Live at Massey Hall 1971."  The content will span his career from 1963 to 1972.  In terms of video, the set includes the full-length documentary, "Journey Through the Past."  Last, the set includes a 236-page hardcover book, containing lyrics, newspaper articles, letters and a Neil Young timeline.

Now, get ready for the bad news…the collection will retail for $431.99!!!  Holy cow!  Good luck trying to sell more than a handful of these sets.
