Neil Young has once again dipped into his gloriously large archives. Following multiple archival releases in the past couple of years, Young will release another album titled Road of Plenty.
The material, pulled from Young’s mid to late ’80s output, has been much sought after by completists and fans.
The brand new archival album, Road of Plenty, is set to feature material from Neil Young’s late ’80s output, including performances with Crazy Horse.
Road of Plenty will feature unreleased material taken from his 1986 tour with Crazy Horse along with songs he recorded with the 1989 band he performed with on Saturday Night Live.
The title track from the album is an early version of his song Eldorado from the 1989 album, Freedom. Originally, Young performed the song for members of Buffalo Springfield during a later reunion. Young went on to say in a post on his website: “It was my fault that we didn’t get together at the time and have a reunion, tour and album.”
Young continued, “How this song escaped is hard for me to believe. Niko Bolas (producer) and I have been working on this project for a while and I think it will be a highlight of 2021.”
Although there is still no set date for the release of the record, we are bound to feel to the force of Young and his classic band in full flight sometime soon. Until then, keep watching his Quarantine Campfire Sessions.
