"If you aren't certain about things, if your mind is still open enough to question what you are seeing, you tend to look at the world with great care, and out of that watchfulness comes the possibility of seeing something that no one else has seen before. You have to be willing to admit that you don't have all the answers. If you think you do, you will never have anything important to say." - Paul Auster

Neil Young Opens Vaults; I Go Completely Broke.

"Neil Young Opens Vaults"

Rocker to release series of eight-disc rarities sets

After nearly fifteen years of promises, Neil Young is now confident
that a slew of material from his vaults will begin to see the light of
day in 2006. With his latest album, Prairie Wind, out next week, the
rock legend is planning several eight-disc sets packed with outtakes,
home recordings, album tracks, live cuts and DVDs.

"It starts with my earliest recordings in 1963," says Young. "Then
several recordings with a group called the Squires, into the earliest
Buffalo Springfield stuff. Then there's a live record culled from a
week's worth of performances at the Riverboat in Toronto."

Fans can expect a 1970 show at Toronto's Massey Hall, featuring
material from Harvest a year before its release, as well as Crazy
Horse live at the Fillmore East. "It's got a sixteen-minute 'Cowgirl
in the Sand,'" Young says of the Fillmore gig, "and a super-long 'Down
by the River.'"

One live performance, the rock vet is convinced, trumps the original
recording: the entirety of Tonight's the Night, recorded live at
London's Rainbow Theatre. Says Young, "It's better than the record."
