Neil Young‘s long-awaited Archives Vol 1 (1963 – 1972) is available to pre-order on Amazon.com; with the release date set for January 27, 2009.

The 10-disc collection will be coming out on Blu-Ray as well as DVD, though as previously reported, Young has said: “Blu-ray is the future. It sounds the best, the navigating system is the best. I’ve made a lot of CDs and we’ve made a lot of DVDs, and Blu-ray technology is so far superior to anything else. The fact there aren’t many players out there now doesn’t meant that much to me, because it is the future, so I would rather focus on what’s next. If you were to get a Blu-ray of the ‘Archive,’ you would get the best.”

So far only listed on the American version of Amazon, the list price is $431.99 for the Blu-Ray set and $344.99 on DVD.

The estimated running time listed on the site is 1200 mins, based on two hours per disc.
