As TwentyFourBit reports, this period of Young's career was characterized by experiments with rockabilly, country and electronic music, all while he was backed by an excellent live band, the International Harvesters. 'Amber Jean,' 'Let Your Fingers Do the Walking,' 'Soul of a Woman,' 'Nothing Is Perfect' and 'Grey Riders' constitute the five never-before-released tracks on 'A Treasure,' with the latter being the first single.
In a funny, rambling, lo-fi promotional video for the album, Young explains that the Blu-ray version features audio paired with videos that were found, in many cases, on the Internet and sometimes don't even sync up properly with the music. For instance, sometimes the footage gets lost halfway through, or the visual features a different musician than is actually playing. 'A Treasure' will be released as a double vinyl LP on May 24 and on CD, Blu-ray and digital formats on June 14.
