A trailer, showing off the features of Neil Young‘s long-awaited Archives Volume One has been made available through video-sharing site YouTube.

As reported yesterday (May 6) Neil Young demonstrated what Archives would look like at the JavaOne I.T. Conference in San Francisco.

The 10-disc Blu-Ray collection of archive material spanning 1963 to 1972, will include hundreds of tracks of music, photographs, letters and other memorabilia.

The first volume of an estimated five, is scheduled for release this Autumn, as a collaboartion between Sun Microsystems, who create the Java technology behind the impressive design and Reprise/ Warner Bros., Young’s record label.
