The Archives Vol. 1 1963–1972 is a box set by Neil Young, released on June 2, 2009 and designed by Gary Burden.

Background[edit]

This is the first of several projected releases in the Neil Young Archives series, which will eventually chronicle the artist's entire career. The box, which won a Grammy Award for Best Boxed or Special Limited Edition Package,[12][13] features previously released as well as rare and unreleased material from the first decade of Young's career, spanning his Winnipeg years with The Squires, Buffalo Springfield, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young and his first several solo albums. The release is set to be followed by other box sets covering other stages of his career.

After conflicting statements over the years, it was revealed that the set would be released in three formats: CD, DVD and Blu-ray. The DVD and Blu-ray editions include 10 discs (including Journey Through the Past released for the first time on DVD and Blu-ray) and a 236-page full-color hardbound book in special packaging, while those with the Blu-ray edition will receive free online updates in perpetuity. The CD set has 8 CDs (Discs 00 & 01 fit on one disc, and Disc 09 is not included) and a CD-sized booklet. Each item in the Archives is also available individually exclusively through Warner Bros.[14] CD, DVD and Blu-ray box set pre-orders from Warner Bros. also included a 7" 45 RPM single with "Aurora" and "Mustang" from Disc 00.[14] In addition, people who pre-ordered the DVD and Blu-ray box sets received, in early May, a bonus copy of Disc 00 (Blu-ray only) so that they could "test drive" the contents.[15] All DVD and Blu-ray box sets also include a card with a code for downloading MP3s of all the tracks in the box set.[14]

Of the 137 tracks on the track listing, 47 are previously unreleased. These include live versions and alternate mixes of previously released songs. Thirteen of the songs on the set have never been released in any form.

The audio format on the Blu-ray version is presented in 24-bit/192 kHz stereo PCM on all discs except Journey Through the Past which includes selectable DTS Surround or stereo 24-bit/96 kHz PCM tracks. The DVD version includes a 24-bit/96 kHz stereo PCM track, while the CDs are in the standard 16-bit/44.1 kHz format.[16]

The package was previewed in an extensive feature penned by Clash magazine editor Simon Harper on April 28, 2009.[17]

Track listing[edit]

Note that this list contains only the officially announced audio. There will be hidden tracks on each DVD and BD, along with video. In addition, the Blu-ray Discs will allow owners to download new content, including audio and video, via BD-Live for free.[18]
