Have seen various posts regarding recent & upcoming releases involving Neil, Crazy Horse and other artists discussed on Rust. I've been waiting 3 weeks for someone to post info about Neil's recent release (?!!!). Here's what I've been able to independently gather:
In a message dated 10/10/97 6:48:17 PM, you wrote: > Heard that the Missing 6 ("Hawks & Doves" "Re*Ac*Tor" > etc.) are to be finally re-issued on 12/25/97. Any > truth to this? If not, when? Unfortunately, no. The Bridge School album will be out in November and that's it until next year. Best, Ilene Reprise RecordsApparently, the 1963-1974 portion of the Archives are set for 1998. My personal opinion is that 1998 looks good for this release. This will be Neil's 35th anniversary (from 1963) full time in the biz.

Subject: Bridge On TV
In November, MTV will have a hour special about the history of the Bridge School concerts, I think. This was told to me by the wind last night on the way home. I think it's true. The truth told can be wrong.
There was a great segment on Year of the Horse on Week In Rock
tonight. Be sure to catch it if you can -- 6:30 Saturday & Sunday nights.
Good clips of Big Time and Like A Hurricane, and the show
even closes with LAH. Good clips of Iggy Pop, The Ramones,
etc.... Long live Neil Young... .....Kyle Olson

Subject: Uncle Joe on BS and CSN/Y
Uncle Joe Benson is an LA disc jockey who also publishes a series of books entitled Uncle Joe's Record Guide. He's the one Cinnamon Girl followed around the HORDE fest and got to watch him interview Neil.
Those of you who want to see every Neil reference there is should go to his home page, then click on the record guide button, then click on the volume entitled Americans, vol 1. There will be excerpts about BS and CSN/Y in there. Also check the table of contents.
Naturally you'll also find info on how to order the complete book in there somewhere. I'm not claiming the excerpt you will be able to browse has anything new, but maybe some of you would be interested in looking around the site.

Subject: DC YOTH Premeire!
Year of the Horse starts 10/24 @ The Key in Georgetown. Sunday or Monday (10/26 or 27) may be good days to try. Who knows how long it will play? I give it only a week. Sadly. :(
Anyone intersted in attending DC screenings of YOTH? Let me know if so.

Subject: Neil & the Horse on Howard Stern?
This morning Gary (Howard's Producer) said that he had a mystery guest lined up for today, but that they canceled at the last minute. Gary told Howard to guess who it was. After he hinted that it was someone that was Howard's dream guest since the day he met him, Robin guessed Neil and she was right.
Howard, pissed because they canceled, then said some bad things about Neil and said that he would just like to have him in to play. While they were discussing Neil, Howard broke out his guitar and played TNATDD, poorly of course.
I am SOOOOOO pissed that Neil canceled. Howard and Neil are my two favorite entertainers in the world. It would have been great.
BTW -- Gary said that Neil was going to come in with the full band (Crazy Horse) and play!!! He also said that they have been lined up several times recently, but they always canceled at the last minute. Hopefully Neil and the Horse will get in to the Stern Show soon!!!!!!

Subject: Neil at NYC YOTH Party
I went to the Year of the Horse film premiere party that was held at CBGB last night. I ended up getting in.
Iggy Pop, Joey Rammone, Lenny Kaye (Patti Smith's Guitarist), Little Steven (aka "Miami Steve" from Springsteen's band), 3/4 of Sonic Youth and Neil Young and Crazy Horse were all there along with Jim JArmusch.
I was able to get each member of Crazy Horse to sign a Year of the Horse poster. Then I got Neil to sign it! He signed it with the wrong end of the pen, then did it again with the ink side. He said he liked the first signature best.
3/4 of Sonic Youth played for about an hour.
I watched Neil meet Iggy. It was really cool.
Afterwards, I was outside of CBGB looking at my poster when I saw Jim Jarmusch a few feet away looking at me. I walked over to him and showed him my signed poster. He said that getting a Neil-signature was hard to get. I told him the poster was missing 1 signature (his). He signed it. He was a reaaly nice, normal guy.
I got home about 2:30 am.
I had an 8 am meeting.

Subject: Crazy Horse Interview on NYC Radio
As I type, the guys from Crazy Horse are being interviewed on 102.7 WNEW in New York by Vin Skelza. I just stumbled upon it and I wanted to let all of you know so you can tune in if you happen to get this tonight (Sunday). Jim Jarmush is on with them and they are talking about the Year of the Horse. So far it is pretty good.

Subject: Brad does Cinnamon Girl
a friend of mine saw Stone Gossard's side project, Brad, on Friday night. she has a friend who taped the show, including the soundcheck, where they did a 10 MINUTE version of Cinnamon Girl!!!!!! (unfortunately it didn't appear in the setlist).
however, the taper was told by the band that they were rehearsing CG to play at their seattle show, because the new guitar player's wife's name is "cinnamon". (not stone gossard, the other guitar player -- she says, trying to stop a panic that stone is married.) i'll be there -- it'll be damn interesting to hear!!
perhaps they were planning on playing this at bridge. oh well. another time.

Subject: Autographed HORDE Train Auction
The Lionel web-site is currently accepting bids on the one-of-a-kind Lionel train that was especially designed for the HORDE tour. At the end of the HORDE tour Neil autographed the train. You can check it out at the Lionel page.
Oh... one more thing... the minimum bid is $25,000... If every Rustie kicked in $50 we might be able to get it and just pass it around... Everyone would get to have it for one day every three years.
Cool just the same!

Subject: Scott Young to be honored
From today's Ottawa Citizen:
Young to be honored by peersI wonder if Neil will show up. I hope Neil will work 7 decades in music, and we can all be carping then about the "missing 6 decade albums".
TORONTO - Author and journalist Scott Young will be given a lifetime achievement award next week at a Toronto luncheon sponsored by Sports Media Canada, the Canadian arm of an international sports media organization.
Young worked in journalism for seven decades and was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame for his coverage of hockey. He also wrote a series of novels about hockey, among other books.

Subject: Cheaper Dead Man video for Xmas?
Went to my local boutique video store (the Revue on the Danforth for us in T-O) and asked about the cost of Dead Man. It still sells for over $100. Asked when it might be coming down. Answer: probably before Christmas. Maybe to about $20 or so.
Which Rustie runs a video store here? Any thoughts on that? I liked the movie when I saw it, and wouldn't mind a reasonably priced video. Hoping it happens before Christmas.

Subject: Neil Article in Insite on the News
I wrote an article that I would like to bring to your attention. It was just published in Insight on the News (September 29th issue), a nationally-circulated weekly magazine that is conservative in its orientation. It has about 100,000 readers. It discusses some of the conservative positions Neil has taken over the years and praises his independence from the left-wing Rock Establishment. I think the HyperRust readers will find it provocative and interesting.

Just thought I'd pass this along. This is a great station you can listen
to with realaudio. They take requests over the net. They play right much
Neil and not just the standards. I requested Revolution Blues (from
On The Beach) recently and they played it a few minutes later.

Subject: No YOTH In Canda Yet :-(
Just got off the phone with the director of Cinematheque (the local small indie theatre here in Winnipeg). He saw Year of the Horse in Toronto and loved it and has asked the distributer for the rights to show it here. So far its up in the air. If the film does well in the States then it might be offered to the bigger movie house chains first. If it's slow with attendance then the smaller theatres in Canada will be able to get it. He probably won't hear anything for 2-3 weeks yet.

The November issue of Fi has an article written by Ron Givens about Year of the Horse. The article discusses Jarmusch's motivation for creating the film, and comments about the nearly thirty years of incredible chemistry between all four members of the band.
Fi is one of the better hifi/audiophile magazines. It's music features are routinely outstanding.

Subject: Songs on the Bridge CD
According to Addicted To Noise, these are the songs that'll be on the Bridge Benefit CD being released in November:
The first-ever Bridge School Benefit album, The Bridge School Concerts: Volume One, will be out on Reprise Records in November. The disc, an amalgam of performances from the past ten years of shows, will include Tom Petty (Shadow of a Doubt), Tracy Chapman (All That You Have is Your Soul), Bonnie Raitt (The Road's My Middle Name), David Bowie (Heroes), Beck (It's All in Your Mind) and Pearl Jam (Nothing Man).RE*AC*TOR
There will also be tracks from Ministry (covering the Grateful Dead's Friend of the Devil), Simon & Garfunkel (America), the Pretenders with the Duke String Quartet (Sense of Purpose), Don Henley (Yes It Is), the Lovemongers featuring Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart (Battle of Evermore), Nils Lofgren (Believe), Elvis Costello (Alison), Patti Smith (People Have the Power) and, of course, Young himself (I Am a Child).
I played golf again with Steve Cropper yesterday (Monday) and he said that Neil had given them one of the performances of Dock Of The Bay from the 93 tour to include on the Booker T and the MGs anthology set to be released around February. (I think that's when he said it would be out, but it might be for Christmas and the sequel to the Blues Brothers may be what is coming out in February.)
He also said that Duck Dunn had talked to Neil's bus driver a
while back and he said that Neil had mentioned to him that there was still a
possible chance of Neil doing an album with Booker T and the MGs, but there
was nothing set. Steve said all the guys would love to do it as soon as
Neil says so. TETANUS SHOT
