ENTER TO WIN A NEIL YOUNG ‘HOMEGROWN’ VINYL TEST PRESSING!

Neil Young just released his “lost” 1975 album Homegrown, and to celebrate Warner Records sent us a vinyl test pressing to give away to one lucky customer!

To enter the drawing, send an email* with the subject “Neil Young” HERE by midnight Thursday, July 9. We will randomly draw a name and notify the winner on Friday, July 10.

Neil Young puts it best: “This album is the unheard bridge between Harvest and Comes a Time.”

Recorded between June 1974 and January 1975, Homegrown was intended to come out in 1975 before Neil canceled the release. The album has remained unreleased until now, achieving a legendary status among Neil Young fans in the process.

The album is made up of twelve Neil Young songs, of which seven are previously unreleased – “Separate Ways,” “Try,” “Mexico,” “Kansas,” “We Don’t Smoke It No More,” “Vacancy” and “Florida” (a spoken word narration). Also included are the first recordings of “Love Is A Rose,” “Homegrown,” “White Line, “Little Wing,” and “Star Of Bethlehem” – different versions of which would all later appear on other Neil Young albums.

Neil plays solo on some tracks (guitar, piano and harmonica), and is joined by a band of friends on other tracks, including Levon Helm, Ben Keith, Karl T Himmel, Tim Drummond, Emmylou Harris and Robbie Robertson.

Recorded in analog, and mastered from the original master tapes, this long-lost album is a wonderful addition to Neil’s incomparable catalog.

* One entry per person, NOT per email address. If you have 16 email addresses and you enter with each address, we’ll just delete 15 of them. We have the technology. To be eligible to win, you must live in the Treasure Valley/Boise metro area and be able to pick up your prize at the store.
