Time Fades AwayNeil Young is too busy with other projects.

According to Pitchfork for this year’s Record Store Day, Neil Young had been planning to release a vinyl box set that included his long out-of-print 1973 record Time Fades Away, which will be reissued for the first time. The box, Official Release Series Discs 5-8 Vinyl Box Set, is also set to include his essential albums On the Beach, Tonight’s the Night, and Zuma.

The release date has now been pushed back from April 19 to a date in November, to be determined. According to a press release, the delay comes “due to several other projects that Young has in the works that he wishes to focus on.”

Time Fades AwayGood news for record-spinners and collectors of Neil Young on Vinyl.

After considerable delay, “Time Fades Away,” Neil Young‘s live album from 1973, will finally be re-released. The record has been kept out-of-print for years by Young, who called it “a total joke” and “the worst record I ever made” in 1987, according to Ultimate Classic Rock.

The record will only be available on vinyl as part of Record Store Day on April 19.

It will be sold as part of a box set including “On the Beach,” “Tonight’s the Night” and “Zuma.” Production of the 180-gram vinyl set will be limited to 3,500 copies.

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 [1], and eventually, Young developed a throat infection that made things even worse…
