Neil Young is Ready to Release Two More from the Archives

Neil Young has ‘Odeon/Budokan’ and Tuscaloosa’ as ready for the next releases for archive series. ‘Tuscaloosa’ recorded in 1973 is next. Then ‘Odeon/Budokan’ will follow a few months later.

‘Odeon/Budokan’ took place at the University of Alabama on 5 February, 1973. It included songs that would shortly be released on the ‘Time Fades Away’ album. Young’s band then was The Stray Gators featuring Ben Keith, Jack Nitzsche, Tim Drummond and Kenney Buttrey.

The ‘Tuscaloosa’ recordings were made with engineer John Hanlon. Hanlon says at Neil Young Archives, “Next up is Tuscaloosa, (under the radar monster) a previously and only partially mined album project from early in the 1973 Time Fades Away tour of the US by Neil & The Stray Gators. . . . .It’s a “good un” as John Lee Hooker would say. “Pots on, gas on high” as he also wrote in one of his songs. ‘Tuscaloosa’ was a particularly potent lineup of great musicians at the zenith of their brotherhood. Ben Keith, Jack Nitzche, Tim Drummond, Kenny Buttrey and Neil.

The ‘Odeon/Budokan’ album was recorded at shows in London and Tokyo in March, 1976 and features Crazy Horse. That month Young played two shows at the Budokan in Tokyo and four at the Hammersmith Odeon.

Hanlon said, “Progress is being made on mastering the Odeon Budokan album for vinyl from the original ¼” mix tapes. This is one of Mr. Briggs conceptualized records, pulled together in 1976 from the Neil Young & Crazy Horse tour of the Orient and Europe, comprised of concerts at Odeon Hammersmith in London and Budokan Hall in Tokyo Japan from March of that year”.
