Four NEIL YOUNG albums fans have long waited to be made available on CD will finally be released next month, it has been confirmed.

‘On the Beach’ (1974), ‘American Stars n’ Bars’ (1977), ‘Hawks And Doves’ (1980) and ‘’ (1981) will be issued on CD on July 14 for the first time, with CD vinyl replicas available from July 21. The albums have been out of print domestically since their LP pressings went out of circulation.

Fans of the singer have called for these albums to be issued on CD for some time, especially ‘On The Beach’, a big favourite with devotees.

Neil Young is currently touring the US with his regular backing band Crazy Horse, having performed an acoustic tour of Europe in June.
