Mojo:

THE AGE-OLD tradition of Neil Young never releasing quite what you want continues apace in 2024; at time of writing, a confirmed date for his Archives Volume III box set remains unknown. Instead, be grateful for this vinyl edition of a 16-track chunk of 2020’s Archives Volume II. Dume is ostensibly a radical expansion of 1975’s Zuma, Point Dume being the headland next to Zuma Beach near producer David Briggs’ house in Malibu, where much of the album was recorded. Dume ditches the incongruous CSNY collab Through My Sails from the original Zuma tracklisting and replaces it with eight blazing cuts from the sessions. All the songs have now surfaced elsewhere, but often in very different and arguably inferior versions: Ride My Llama and Pocahontas are spectacular electric stomps compared with the acoustic takes on Rust Never Sleeps. Reconfigured, Dume becomes less about Young’s break-up with Carrie Snodgress and leans harder into his phantasmagorial visions of Aztecs and Incas, prompting a heretical thought: it might actually be better than Zuma.
Picked it up myself last night. I love Zuma and really love Neil. A contrarian no doubt but I love that about him
Great taste Shane! Now if only I had it here so I could actually listen to it!
Contrarians make the world spin off its axis and the rest of us catch it ;)

Jesus I’m only now just seeing the ‘floater’ 👻 Just for that alone they deserve at least a listen.

My absolue favourite Pink Floyd album!
Wonderful package too. Again I’m more partial to the Syd Barrett era and the subsequent albums up to Meddle. Have you ever heard ‘More’, ‘Obscured by Clouds’? I’m sure you have though. ‘More’ in particular is a gem especially Rick's contribution.
Yes, I have heard most, if not all, of the Pink Floyd stuff.
Fair disclosure: I am a very big David Gilmour fan.

Some Sunday morning Natalie Merchant - Keep Your Courage.
Released last year, new material. Thoughtful, insightful, beautiful, well stitched together, and pretty well recorded to boot

Fergus, I remember buying that Paul Brady when it was released back before the CD invasion, I still dig it out on the odd occasions.

Yes, I think that it is always worth a listen.
