Official Release Series Discs 8.5-12 is not a very inventive title for this collection so allow me to come up with a better name:
Two Great Live Albums, A Good Album, An Average Album, and a Crap Collaborative Album with Neil's Friend and Mortal Enemy Stephen Stills. The two great live albums are Rust Never Sleeps and Live Rust (which both feature solo acoustic and full Crazy Horse tracks) and they are both essential. The good album is Comes a Time which finds Neil in country mode (without going full-on Nashville with it). The average album is American Stars N' Bars which is mainly known as the album that has 'Like a Hurricane' on it. And finally the crap collaborative album with Neil's friend and mortal enemy Stephen Stills is Long May You Run, credited in typical 70's fashion to the Stills-Young Band. This one is pretty much dreck and the ensuing tour for the album was so depressing that Neil just dropped out unceremoniously on a whim. That should tell you all you need to know about the contents of the record.
The overall average means this is a good collection but you might want to save your money and buy the worthy albums individually.
