Offered for sale is a still sealed limited edition 2009 U.S. pressing of Neil Young, the debut LP by Neil Young.
Note: This LP was issued as both a 140 gram pressing and a 180 gram pressing; the only difference was the bar code on the cover. This copy does not have the 140 gram barcode; it may be a 180 gram pressing.
About this copy: This copy of Neil Young is a 2009 U.S. pressing on the Reprise label.
As the album is still sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed.
The wrap is fully intact with no rips, tears, or holes.
There are two hype stickers on the front cover. One says “The Buffalo Sprinfield’s Neil Young.” The other says “A Classic Neil Young Album Mastered from the Original Analog Master Tapes.”
There is a sticker on the back cover with a barcode number: 0 9362497637 0. The bar code for the 140 gram pressing is 0 9362-49786-8 8, so this is likely the 180 gram pressing. We can’t be sure as the album is still sealed and we have no way of checking the weight. We have been unable to find the bar code number for the 180 gram pressing.
A nice copy of a scarce Neil Young LP.
Background: Released in 1968, Neil Young was the debut album by Neil Young.
The album did not chart in either the U.S. or the UK.
On his songs for Buffalo Springfield, Neil Young had demonstrated an eclecticism that ranged from the rock of “Mr. Soul” to the complicated, multi-part arrangement of “Broken Arrow.” On his debut solo album, he continued to work with composer/arranger Jack Nitzsche, with whom he had made “Expecting to Fly” on the Buffalo Springfield Again album, and together the two recorded a restrained effort on which the folk-rock instrumentation, most of which was by Young, overdubbing himself, was augmented by discreet string parts. …Neil Young made for an uneven, low-key introduction to Young’s solo career, and when released it was a commercial flop, his only album not to make the charts. (Several months after the album’s release, Young remixed it to bring out his vocals more and added some overdubs. This second version replaced the first in the U.S. from then on, though the original mix remained available overseas.)
