Nice article about this dark album. And not yet re-released. We’re waiting for The Archives or PONO. For the Neil-Fans out there, a re-release of “TFA” is a long awaited wish.
40 Years Ago: Neil Young Releases ‘Time Fades Away’ (1973)
TIMES FADES AWAY from test pressing
There are so many albums in Neil Young‘s catalog that most fans wouldn’t miss a stray out-of-print entry or two. But that isn’t the case with his infamous “lost” 1973 live release, ‘Time Fades Away.’
Mostly recorded on a disastrous tour that found Young and his band slowly falling apart over 62 shows in early 1973, ‘Time Fades Away’ should have come at a moment of triumph, since it arrived in the wake of his hugely successful ‘Harvest’ LP. Platinum sales often bring their own set of problems, however, and for Young, mainstream stardom proved a burden that started chafing almost immediately. “I felt like a product, and I had this band of all-star musicians that couldn’t even look at each other,” Young reflected in a 1987 interview. “It was a total joke.”
Of course, Young being Young, he didn’t exactly make the tour easy on himself, chiefly by opting to perform previously unreleased material for crowds expecting to hear the hits. Going on to call ‘Time Fades Away’ “my least favorite record” and “the worst record I ever made” in the same 1987 interview, Young explained, “As a documentary of what was happening to me, it was a great record. I was onstage and I was playing all these songs that nobody had heard before, recording them, and I didn’t have the right band. It was just an uncomfortable tour. It was supposed to be this big deal — I just had ‘Harvest’ out, and they booked me into 90 cities.”
At this point, it’s hard to say who the “right band” would have been for Young, whose mental state grew progressively darker during the tour. All the same, the bloom was probably off the rose from the moment that former Crazy Horse guitarist Danny Whitten, who’d been slated to join Young’s band the Stray Gators for this series of dates, ended up being sent home to sober up — and soon died of a heroin overdose. The bad vibes grew to the point that drummer Kenny Buttrey quit partway through, replaced by the Jefferson Airplane‘s Johnny Barbata , and eventually, Young developed a throat infection that made things even worse…
Surprisingly, the next release in the Neil Young APS (Archives Performance Series) is
Live at The Cellar Door 1970.

Neil Young is to collect his first four solo albums in an upcoming budget box set.
A seminal songwriting talent, Neil Young’s sprawling discography can be an imposing beast. Do you start with his folk period, his country rock output, his oddball 80s output or the 90s rejuvenation?
Thankfully, Neil Young is set to make things a little easier for fans. The Canadian born songwriter is to collect his first four solo albums in a new budget box set, acting as a superb introduction to his output.
‘Official Release Series, Discs 1-4’ will be released through Reprise on June 11th, with the box set due to contain: ‘Neil Young’ (1968), ‘Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere’ (1969), ‘After The Gold Rush’ (1970) and ‘Harvest’ (1972).
These four albums chart Neil Young’s progression from the wreckage of Buffalo Springfield towards the enormous commercial success of ‘Harvest’.
Celebrating its fortieth anniversary this year, the album’s soothing country rock remains a touchstone – arguably paving the way for Fleet Foxes, Band Of Horses and countless other plaid shirt clad minstrels.
However there remains plenty left to explore. Hell, even ‘Harvest’ – perhaps Young’s most easily accessible album – contains the final guitar rampage of ‘Words’.
‘Official Release Series, Discs 1-4’ is set to be released on June 11th.
Neil Young says that his latest archival album, “A Treasure,” will be the first of many similar projects that will use unauthorized video material to enhance and flesh out the music that’s on those releases.
“Anything that anybody puts out there is fair game for me,” Young tells Billboard.com. “I can now use and I will continue to use on all my ‘Archives’ projects from now on any defining performance from any (source) synced up to the sound that I like.”
For the video component of “A Treasure” — which documents his spirited 1984-85 tour in support of his country album, “Old Ways” — Young used material shot by fans that he found on the Internet, syncing up the musical performances he selected from 85 concerts recorded during the tour. Some songs are incomplete and filled out with still photos or the album cover in lieu of live footage; others feature players different than those who are on the audio recording. But Young says he enjoyed the challenge of putting all that together.
“We wanted to bring as much of the experience, from a historic, archival perspective, as possible,” he says. “If I can see a band play a song and it’s not the same version, I will sync it up and make it work so that you get a feeling of what was actually happening during the day when it was done. Now I have all these videos of things I did a long time ago…that I will sync up with my archival studio tracks and take people on a trip back there, where it was happening. There’s something really cool about that.”
“A Treasure” and the tour that it comes from hold a special place in Young’s heart because was playing, he says, with “probably the most accomplished set of musicians that I ever played with, as far as just the expertise and the defining ability each one of them has.” They included legendary fiddler Rufus Thibodeux (who passed away in 2005), pianist Spooner Oldham and longtime Young cohort Ben Keith, who worked with Young in assembling “A Treasure” and even came up with the title (“After we listened to it, he said this is a treasure, Neil,’ ” Young
recalls) before passing away in July of 2010. The tour also coincided with the lawsuit filed by Young’s label, Geffen Records, accusing him of making albums that were “not ‘commercial’ and…musically uncharacteristic.” Both it and Young’s countersuit were eventually dropped in 1985, but the litigation clearly fueled Young as he hit the road the previous year.
“We had no support,” Young recalls. “I was being sued by my record company… and I also had been told by (Geffen) that country radio would never play this. So we really started to let out the shaft and just go for it. I was out there doing it myself and playing it for people who were loving it, and we were having a great time living high off the hog and just flying down the road in buses and just never stopped for about a year.”
The experience also included playing new and as-yet unrecorded songs, some of which were written during the tour and five of which — “Amber Jean,” “Let Your Fingers Do the Walking,” “Soul of a Woman,” “Nothing Is Perfect” and “Grey Riders” — appear on “A Treasure.” “The band could learn a song in half an hour, and we could play it that night,” Young recalls. “There’s nothing these guys couldn’t do. This was a band that could play anything and play it right away, so there was no delay. That was perfect for me.”
Young says there are “several” other original, unreleased songs that do not appear on “A Treasure” for space reasons. He says some of those may show up on his third “Archives” release, while he hopes to release “Archives 2″ in 2012.
“We’re well into shooting the discs and getting the video ready for it and the interactivity and all of the content,” Young notes. “There’ll be different formats it’ll come out in besides Blu-ray this time that are the same resolution but new formats people haven’t seen before. There’ll be some Internet-based distributions that’ll be interesting.”
“\"What is it about JJ Cale’s playing? I mean, you could say Eric
Clapton’s the guitar god, but... he can\'t play like JJ,\" Young told
biographer Jimmy McDonough. \"JJ’s the one who played all that s---
first... And he doesn’t play very loud, either — I really like that
about him. He’s so sensitive. Of all the players I ever heard, it’s
gotta be Hendrix and JJ Cale who are the best electric guitar players.
JJ’s my peer, but he doesn’t have the business acumen — he doesn’t have the idea of how to deal with the rest of the world that I do. But
musically, he’s actually more than my peer, because he’s got that thing.
I don’t know what it is.\"” by -- Neil Young Jimmy McDonough in \"Shakey.\"
