The first confirmed details have emerged for Neil Young's 'Archives Volume One,' which is shaping up to be a landmark Blu-ray music release against which all others will be judged.
As previously reported, the rock legend announced ambitious plans earlier this year to release his entire back catalog on Blu-ray in multiple, extensive special edition box sets, though there were no street date or specs.
Now the first official word has come in, with 'Neil Young: Archives Volume One (1963-1972)' tentatively set for a February 24 street date through Warner Music Group.
Spanning ten discs, the set will boast no less than 128 tracks, among them 43 unreleased songs and 13 never-before-heard by the public.
Also included are two complete live albums, "Live At The Fillmore East" and "Live At Massey Hall 1971."
Video extras feature the full-length documentary "Journey Through the Past."
Rounding out this impressive Blu-ray release is a 236-page hardcover book, plus lyrics written by Neil Young, newspaper articles, letters and a Young timeline.
Suggested retail price for the box set has been set at $431.99.
