How the Institutional Racism of Yesterday Still Reverberates Today
But I did not buy either Fork in the Road or Archives this year. I will probably get around to buying Fork; I just heard so many bad things about it when it came out that I shied away. But the Archives? Containing tons of vintage unreleased Neil? Well... here's the thing. Most of the stuff on there was released, either on his proper records or on the recent Fillmore East and Massey Hall CDs. And the price tag was $300 for the Blu-Ray version, which apparently is the version to get. (Also, I don't own a Blu-Ray player.) I guess I'm wondering, did anybody buy the Archives?
Um, so anyway, happy birthday Neil! Here's a link to a song from another upcoming archival release, one which I will buy. It's called Dreamin' Man and it's from the Harvest Moon tour in 1992. Dreamin' Man Live '92 comes out on December 8. Listen to the title track here (it's great).
