Re-issue of a Master: Furnace MFG Completes Pressing of Neil Young’s Official Release Series Disc 1-4 Box Set

Furnace MFG is proud to announce the pressing completion of Neil Young’s first four albums on 180 gram audiophile quality vinyl in limited edition box sets. Each box set (and all corresponding jackets included within) are numbered with gold foil stamps and limited to 3,000 units. The records were pressed by the Pallas Group in Germany – arguably the finest vinyl pressing facility in the world.

Neil Young’s self-titled solo album was first released in 1969. That was followed by “Everybody Knows This is Nowhere” also in 1969. The following year saw the release of “After the Gold Rush” and finally in 1972, “Harvest” was released and reached both critical and commercial success.

Warner Bros. Music selected Furnace MFG to press the vinyl records, hand-stamp each individual jacket and box set with a unique number in gold leaf, and assemble the final product for distribution and sale to customers. The entire project is limited to just 3,000 box sets. Once the box sets are gone, this limited edition configuration will no longer be available.

The records were pressed at Furnace’s German partner – the Pallas Group on 180 gram audiophile quality vinyl. Pallas has a long history of extremely high-quality vinyl pressing and is considered the plant of choice for many audiophile record labels throughout the world.

Tom Biery, General Manager of Warner Bros. Records and vinyl enthusiast commented: “In all my years of working vinyl releases, I was shocked at just how incredible these Neil Young re-masters sound. There is no doubt in my mind that when listening to these recordings on the new, upgraded vinyl format, it will be as close as anyone will audibly come to actually being in the studio listening to the original master tapes. It now sounds as if you are in the room with Neil during the session.”

The limited edition Neil Young Official Release Series Disc 1-4 Box Set will be available on November 24th exclusively at or
