Neil Young: Long May You Run By Daniel Durchholz & Gary Graff

Neil Young: Long May You Run

Voyageur Press has joined forces with renowned rock journalists Daniel Durchholz (Rolling Stone) and Gary Graff (New York Times) for the brand new book, NEIL YOUNG — Long May You Run: The Illustrated History. This lovingly assembled tome — the first complete illustrated history published about this legendary Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee — arrives May 15, 2010 to coincide with Young’s Summer 2010 tour and celebrate five decades of genre-spanning work, perfectly mixing expertly researched text and many never-before-seen photos. This heavy duty 224-page volume follows Young’s long-and-winding career, from the early days of Buffalo Springfield, on through CSNY, and of course, his unpredictably exhilarating solo career.

Born and raised in Canada, Neil Young is equally best known for acoustic/folk hits (“Heart of Gold,” “Old Man”) and raunchy garage rock (“Cinnamon Girl,” “Hey Hey, My My”) — not to mention stops with the harmony-driven CSNY (“Ohio”) and the psychedelic pop of Buffalo Springfield (“For What It’s Worth”). This thoroughly enticing book will certainly appeal to fans of all eras of “Neil.” And in addition to countless photographs from the 1960s all the way to the present, also included are concert posters and memorabilia from around the world, complemented by commentary from notable musicians around the world, as well as an extensive discography.

Interest in Young’s music remains at an all-time high — as evidenced by the recent emergence of vintage archival releases from throughout Neil’s career, including the mammoth box set, Archives Volume One, as well as Dreamin’ Man: Live ’92, Live at the Riverboat 1969, Sugar Mountain: Live at Canterbury House 1968, Live at Massey Hall 1971, and Live at the Fillmore 1970. NEIL YOUNG — Long May You Run: The Illustrated History will serve as the perfect visual accompaniment the next time you bust out one of the aforementioned titles, as it is without a doubt the most comprehensive book about Neil Young to be released to date.

In addition to the Neil Young book, Voyageur Press will be issuing other music-related titles this fall in their ongoing “Illustrated History” book series: Phil Sutcliffe’s AC/DC: The Ultimate Illustrated History, and Greg Kot and Jim DeRogatis’ THE BEATLES VS. THE ROLLING STONES: Sound Opinions on the Great Rock n’ Roll Rivalry. These titles arrive on the heels of last year’s trio of popular “Illustrated History” releases: Jon Bream’s NEIL DIAMOND IS FOREVER: The Illustrated Story of the Man and His Music, Phil Sutcliffe’s QUEEN: The Crown Kings of Rock, and Jim DeRogatis’ THE VELVET UNDERGROUND: An Illustrated History of A Walk on the Wild Side. All are jam-packed with photos, artifacts, and comprehensive histories of each artist.
