Neil Young’s Greatest Hits, a collection of sixteen tracks chronicling his three-decade career, will be released on Warner/Reprise on November 16. This is the first time Young has released a single-disc collection of his most popular music.
Young’s third greatest hits disc to date is being presented in DVD-stereo, mixed from the original master recordings. “One of the most important jobs of any musician is to provide quality sound to the people,” explains Young. “Quality has taken a hit in recent years, but it’s starting to come back thanks to DVD-stereo. There is just no comparison between DVD-stereo and a regular compact disc or even 5.1 sound. It’s the difference between a true reflection of the music and a mere replica. I’ve always been a strong believer in analog, and this is about as close to the rewarding listening experience of vinyl as the real thing.”
The DVD-stereo disc’s visual accompaniment features original vinyl pressings being played on a turntable in real time, along with accompanying art elements. Neil Young’s Greatest Hits will be available as a single CD as well as a CD and DVD-stereo special edition.
