Neil Young Delays Time Fades Away Reissue, Accompanying Box Set

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.”

Cover Me

Five good covers of “Cortez the Killer.”

“He came dancing across the waters, Cortez, Cortez.”

The website “Cover Me” has compiled a list of artists who offer their own renditions of Young’s historical-fiction epic song.

In 1975, Neil Young released Zuma, one of several albums he recorded in the ’70s which contained a single song that pretty much eclipsed the rest of the album. In Zuma’s case, it was “Cortez the Killer,” a three-chorder rumored to have been written to make it easier for Crazy Horse guitarist Frank Sampredo to play along on rhythm guitar. Young hadn’t played with Crazy Horse for several years, and during that time Sampredo had taken the place of founding guitarist Danny Whitten, who had died of a drug and alcohol overdose. Clocking in at over seven minutes, “Cortez” was originally even longer — it famously had to be faded out because tape ran out during the session. (Upon learning the song’s last verse didn’t get recorded, Young shrugged and said, “I never liked that verse anyway.”) Bands who have covered the song have been been tacking minutes onto it ever since.
