Official Releases Series is the name Neil Young has given to the personally approved remasters of his core catalog. The series debuted in 2012 with a four-album box that contained Young's first four albums, and this 2016 installment covers his next five: the Stephen Stills duet album Long May You Run (its presence is why this is billed as "8.5"), American Stars & Bars, Comes a Time, Rust Never Sleeps, and Live Rust. Whether they're heard in new vinyl pressings or CDs released in 2017, the remasters are vivid and robust -- the best this music has ever sounded, and that's reason enough for hardcore Neil Young fans to purchase these titles again.
