"Rust Subscription TBA"
Neil Young's Online Archives
Last week, we posted Roxy Live: Next Release From Neil Young's Online Archives? , about an album tentatively titled "CRAZY HOSS ROXY LIVE" that is in "production". "Roxy Live" will supposedly be live recordings of six shows from The Roxy, Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA when Neil Young played with the "Santa Monica Flyers" (CRAZY HOSS) from 20 to 22 September 1973.

In addition to this "Roxy Live" announcement, a post-it note on the Filing Cabinet on Neil Young's Online Archives is labeled "Rust Subscription TBA". This has already generated a fair amount of speculation on what this "Rust Subscription TBA" might be all about.

From a comment on Neil Young's Online Archives , Lone Red Rider posted:
Whatever Rust Subscription is, I'm in for a month to check it out. There are a couple of possibilities:

1)A means to fund the licensing of the Geffen, Atlantic, Rhino and other released materials for which Neil hasn't negotiated a streaming license yet. So maybe only the Rust Subscribers can play this content in a beta version of the website before it fully opens up in July.

2)A way to start monetizing the website by making limited new Reprise archival releases available to a paying public, before June 2nd and before probably CD releases of such material. Note that Neil is teasing Roxy and the Rust subscription at the same time. I'd like to think that EVERYONE would get ROXY as a taste of how NYA would grow (since it was teased to everyone), but only the Rust Subscribers would get other serious upgrades before July.

It seems to essentially be a financial bridge between now and July when I'd expect the Rust Subscription would transfer to a regular subscription and the whole site becomes a pay site. If it gets me into new material before July, I'm in!

I'm sure all of the "unreleased albums" on the NYA site will make their way onto CD eventually. Hopefully sooner rather than later. But there will still be many odd tracks, videos, films, photos, etc that will ONLY be accessible on the site. I believe the idea is that the website replaces any future Blu-Ray and DVD versions of albums that used to be released over the last 15 years to sell the high res copies.

CD and itunes will still be the main way any of Neil's music reaches the public.

Maybe "rust subscription" grants you some earlier access.

@ Lone Red Rider - thanks for thoughts here.

Well, it sure would be nice for the RUST community to have the opp to get in on the ground floor. Either @ discount or in advance.

It would be nice as well if the community could provide input on release prefs.

That made the NYA run-up pretty exciting when Archives Guy was participating in the community prior to release.

But we sure would be dismayed if this had a financial angle as you suggest. Really can't see enough nickels to make it worth the effort.

Now if the subscriptions accepted BitCoin, now that would be interesting.... ;)
