CSNY Box Set seeing the light?...Dylan, Genesis and Queen...
18 Feb 2008

After a long period of silence, breaking the string of unanswered email attempts comes word from Aurora Borealis on the often discussed and long time coming CROSBY, STILLS, NASH & YOUNG career-spanning CD/DVD box set. Supplementing the technical upgrades delay last fall on the project are issues with real life scheduling conflicts in making progress, along with the fact that at points where progress was achieved there would be other new material obtained, submitted, discovered and learned about to force the producers to pause and track down every little snippet in the name of making it as comprehensive as can be.  This has been the message before and doesn't really change anything but efforts are being stepped up to provide the necessary focus to wrap this package up sometime over the next few months.  As I understand it, the NEIL YOUNG DVD project that was to precede the big box is still on the docket as well and we should still expect it just prior to the box.  Where does that actually leave us?  The Aurora Borealis projects are still on and we should expect to hear more about them over the coming weeks. Connection re-established...
