Record Store Day 2016 Press Conference @ Electric Lady Studios, March 8, 2016

Record Store Day 2016 will be holding a major press conference at Electric Lady Studios in Greenwich Village on Tuesday March 8th, 2016. It will be attended by Lenny Kaye of The Patti Smith Group and John Densmore of The Doors to announce the 2016 Record Store Day special releases. This announcement is expected to include a vinyl release of the live recording of Horses that Patti Smith recorded on 26 August 2015.  This will be the first offering from Electric Lady Records.

Patti Smith went into Electric Lady to record a very special Record Store Day release, and that title will mark the first of what we hope will be a series of collaborations between Record Store Day and Electric Lady.    All the details will come out on the 8th when they launch the list.

Neil Young & Crazy Horse Alchemy Tour 2012

alchemy tour 2012 posterAlchemy is an influential philosophical tradition whose early practitioners’ claims to profound powers were known from antiquity.

The third episode of A Rust Trilogy, which began with Rust Never Sleeps in 1978, and continued with Weld in 1990, now concludes with Alchemy in 2012. Things have changed, yet they stay the same. Alchemy, like Rust and Weld, finds the boys at another stage of life’s journey. Time has taken its toll, yet the spirit seems unstoppable.

God willing we will see the Alchemy Tour in less than two months on December 4, 2012, Webster Bank Arena, Bridgeport, Ct. The Patti Smith Group is the opening act, Horses, Horses….
