New details on Neil Young‘s expansive The Archives Vol. 1 1963-1972 box set, due for release early in 2009, have been revealed.
According to a newly-released trailer, the box set, on 10-disc DVD or Blu-Ray, will contain 128 audio tracks, including 43 unreleased and 13 of these never heard before.
The set, which comes with a 236-page hardback book, will also feature access to thousands of images and hours of video.
One of the videos included is Journey Through The Past, Young‘s 1974 film never before released on DVD, which includes footage of Buffalo Springfield and Crosby Stills Nash And Young.
An audio track of ‘Aurora’ by Young‘s high school band The Squires is also included.
The previously-released Archives albums, Live At The Fillmore East and Live At Massey Hall 1971, will also be included in the box set, although it is currently believed that the newly-released Sugar Mountain – Live At Canterbury House 1968 will not.
Hand-written lyrics, letters, newspaper cuttings and memorabilia will also be available in the Archives, along with a detailed interactive timeline.
