Neil Young Announces 50th Anniversary ‘After The Gold Rush’ Reissue

Neil Young has revealed plans to release a deluxe reissue of his classic album After the Gold Rush in celebration of its 50th anniversary.

According to a post on the Neil Young Archives, a 50th anniversary edition of the album, which was originally released on September 19, 1970, is going to be released by Reprise Records.

While there’s no exact date for the release, it will likely include a live concert film, dubbed Young Shakespeare, from Young’s January 22nd, 1971 performance at the Shakespeare Theater in Stratford, Connecticut.

Although Young’s show at Massey Hall has been widely considered his best concert, Young feels that his Shakespeare Theater show is better.

“In fact, today as we listen and compare, John Hanlon and I both feel ‘Shakespeare’ is superior to our beloved ‘Massey Hall,'” Young wrote on his site.

“A more calm performance, without the celebratory atmosphere of Massey Hall, captured live on 16mm film,” he added. “‘Young Shakespeare’ is a very special event. To my fans, I say this is the best ever.”
