Name: rob Country: UK Date: Thu May 30 13:01:16 2002 Comment: It will be a sad day if this is released. Who really wants to see this great album mass produced on the shelves of HMV. Keep it for those who have a real passion for neils work.
Name: Giles McClelland Country: U.K. Date: Thu May 30 12:57:07 2002 Comment: I don't want On the Beach or any of the other 5 deleted albums mass released again. This is purely because at the moment these records belong to the people who are really passionate about Neils work. If you really want this album go to a good second hand record site and buy a nice vinyl copy. You will treasure your copy. You honestly don't want to go into HMV or Virgin and see 'On the Beach' or'time fades away' on the shelves do you? Speaking on behalf of a lot of Neil Young fans that will

Name: Steven Powell Country: USA Date: Thu May 30 05:45:35 2002 Comment: Why? Why? Why? Why, Neil, won't you put this out on either vinyl or CD. You probably like the drama? Is that it? It's one of your best. For God's sake. Don't make me buy a German bootleg!

Name: Cor Janse Country: Netherlands Date: Wed May 29 23:13:35 2002 Comment: I've got the LP !
Name: Martin Coburn Country: Republic of Ireland Comment: (long message input by hand) Colin, thank you for this excellent effort. Neil, I have been with you since 1967. I well remember what you said in Slane, Ireland on July 10th '93. You said "What I love about coming back to Ireland is when the people say 'Hello', they really mean it." In ' 74 I lived without food for 4 days to buy my ticket to Wembley that August. In ' 97 I travelled from my home in Drogheda to Saratoga Springs and then on to Jones Beach for the show there. It is one of my most memorable moments that I went across the Atlantic ocean to see and hear you. I have heard it said Neil that you don't like CD's and you are reported as having said "CD's fool the mind but leave the heart sad".I respect your opinion Neil and my view is that, as far as I am concerned, in the performing art of music, nothing compares with the sight and sound of Neil Young on a stage. Each show is unique, as is each note you play, and each and every word you sing, and no format except the raw live recording can capture this uniquesness. So what does it matter about CD's? I did not enjoy the show at Jones Beach,LI on August 12th ' 97, and neither did you Neil, you stopped playing ' Big Time', but I don't go to your shows Neil only to enjoy myself, I go to BE in your presence, to experience the presence of YOUR being, to have my share in ALL you have to offer: your sadness,gladness, lonliness; your fear, guilt, inadequecy, your love, your hate, your joy, your sorrow, to experience everything. All the people who have signed this petition Neil just want to hear the music and I am delighted to join them. I am a great believer in letting things happen, and there is a reason for everything and until it happens I will just Carry On waiting, as I waited for 14 long years to hear ' Country Home'. In the meantime I'll tell you what I want: I want you to release ' On The Beach ' and the other 5 too. Thanks for listening Neil, and thanks for everything else as well.

Name: Bert Denckens Country: Belgium Date: Tue May 28 13:44:34 2002 Comment: Neil, please re-release 'On the Beach'. As a 26y old fan it's the only record you ever released I don't have (well on tape, but...) and I want it badly !! Bring it out on vinyl or SACD cause you're right about CD!
Name: Jack Baker Country: USA Date: Tue May 28 08:19:07 2002 Comment: Please re-release On the Beach. I have the album on vinyl and it's the most amazing, dark, beautiful thing I've ever heard. It deserves to be heard by more people.

Name: Andrew Davies Country: Australia Date: Thu May 23 13:55:21 2002 Comment: I gave away my vinyl copy of On the Beach when I moved interste, thinking I'd get it on CD....
Name: Matt Azano Country: USA Date: Thu May 23 04:47:00 2002 Comment: This is one of Neil's best albums from possibly the most creative period in his career (certainly the most interesting). I was lucky enough to hear it on a bootleg CD version, and would like to have a REAL CD copy of this brilliant album.
Name: jane Country: Austaralia Date: Thu May 23 04:45:21 2002 Comment: Help! I have a scratchy old tape of 'On the beach' and my friend who taped it for me put some Leo Sayer songs at the end of it.Aaaargh.....Every time I sit back in reverie listening to Neil Young I have to leap up and turn off the tape before the end as the Leo Sayer songs jolt me back into some horrible 80's fantasy.Help!!!!! CD me NOW!
Name: Rob Country: Australia Date: Thu May 23 04:11:31 2002 Comment: Ok, maybe you now have friends in Laurel Canyon and 'I need them all like lepers' is a bit harsh....but there are some beautiful,beautiful songs on that album. Don't let it go the way of the black rhino!
Name: Stephen Hughes Country: US Date: Thu May 23 00:34:57 2002 Comment: I am one of the lucky ones who has a friend who burned a copy of On the Beach that he found on the internet. The album is one of his best and should be a part of any collection. It's time to re-release it.
Name: Rick Brache Country: USA Date: Wed May 22 23:06:22 2002 Comment: All I can say is that any fan of Neil Young will want to hear "ambulance Blues" at some point in thier lives........definately one of the best songs hes ever written, so please re-relese OTB!

Name: Pat Evers Country: NZ Date: Wed May 22 04:34:31 2002 Comment: I remember hearing this album YEARS ago, and was really struck by it! Since then I have searched for it all over the world, but to no avail. I would be grateful for its release...
Name: Francis Greene Country: UK Date: Tue May 21 17:01:08 2002 Comment: I bought the album back in 1974. I loved it then and I still do. I mainly listen on tape so my vinyl's in pretty reasonable nick. I recently burned a copy to CDR on my Philips stand-alone so I guess I'm sorted. I wish everyone was.
Name: rob Country: UK Date: Tue May 21 13:40:18 2002 Comment: i'm a big fan of neil, but I think its unfair on his younger fans never to give them a chance to hear (what i have been told) one of his best albums.
Name: Chris Pardos Country: Australia Date: Tue May 21 03:39:29 2002 Comment: Neil, I am listening to an old tape of 'On the Beach'as I write this and I am afraid I will wear it out!! Don't release it on vinyl as I can't get a stylus anymore for my old disc player. CD is the only option! It is album of the year EVERY YEAR...don't deprive us of the opportunity to immerse ourselves in its magic.
Name: Sean D. Sampson Country: USA Date: Tue May 21 02:59:54 2002 Comment: I think this album and the other 5 are long overdue.

Name: Greg Country: USA Date: Thu May 16 14:13:24 2002 Comment: I, being a younger fan (15 years old), have never been able to listen to On The Beach because I can not find it anywhere. My father first told me about this album, and ever since I've been looking for it. Please, Neil, release the music.
Name: Jeff Weir Country: Canada Date: Thu May 16 06:40:35 2002 Comment: Neil - please don't censor you work.
Name: Pat Country: USA Date: Thu May 16 06:05:48 2002 Comment: How far would I go to hear ON THE BEACH again without the sound of bacon frying in the background? Well how about naming my only son Neil? (Of course that was 19 years ago). Puuuuuuhhhhhlleeeeeezze?
Name: david Country: France Date: Wed May 15 20:34:51 2002 Comment: I love this album and I only got a bad copy downloaded on napster ! Neil, give us "on the beach" back !
Name: David Pugh Country: USA Date: Wed May 15 16:43:54 2002 Comment: On The Beach has always been one of my favorite Neil albums. I'm eagerly awaiting it's CD release, as well as American Stars'N'Bars and Time Fades Away. C'mon, Neil. And where's that box set we've been hearing about for years?
Name: Mike Nabinger Country: USA Date: Wed May 15 02:37:26 2002 Comment: Ya know, just put out all the albums. "Time Fades Away". "American Stars N Bars". "On The Beach". Put 'em all out. How can you hold back all those songs, especially "Like a Hurricane". Why is that not out on it's original album?
Name: Matt McQuade Country: USA Date: Wed May 15 02:33:42 2002 Comment: What da hell do you mean?!?!?!?!....Just put the damn thing out!!!!

Name: Tristan Miller Country: Australia Date: Tue May 14 04:12:47 2002 Comment: On The Beach is a great album and the only copy I have is an aging tape of it. CD would be great.
Name: Erik Country: Amsterdam Date: Mon May 13 23:33:12 2002 Comment: It took me three years to locate it on vinyl. It was well worth the search but I had rather bought it on CD. Remastered and all. I hope you're listening Neil. It's one of your best. Nothing to be ashamed about me thinks.
Name: Mike Close Country: England Date: Mon May 13 23:03:19 2002 Comment: I must admit that I have most of the album on my old reel to reel. Every track is great.Locally 2nd hand "OTB" LP's selling from £40 to £90 so there is obviously a big demand. I just can't understand why yhey won't re release it.Keep up the good work
Name: Monty Bohanan Country: USA Date: Mon May 13 20:55:08 2002 Comment: I have been lokking all over for "On the Beach"! I hope it is re-released soon. Thnaks for petitioning for its release.
Name: Jacob Eliosoff Country: USA/Canada Date: Mon May 13 08:21:17 2002 Comment: I remember hearing CBC radio host David Wisdom play this (a live version, I think) a few years ago and being blown away. Also there's a busker here in Somerville, MA who's always playing it and I find myself humming it all the time. Unfortunately I'm a loser who not only cannot hum but doesn't even own a record player. Neil, I know you don't care about losers like me, but we care about you, man. It's a great tune. I just thought you should know.
Name: Sejun KIm Country: USA Date: Sun May 12 01:02:15 2002 Comment: I desperately need this album to complete the Neil Young record collection that I have. So please release ON THE BEACH!!v

Name: Jonathan Rushdoony Country: United States Date: Sat May 11 06:07:31 2002 Comment: Neil, please re-release this classic. It's been one of my favorites since it was released. I had the original vinyl since 1974 until a flood in my basement wrecked it and other albums a few years ago. Now I am at your mercy.
Name: Brent Winkelman Country: USA Date: Sat May 11 01:07:54 2002 Comment: It is the best Neil Young album ever. I even did a term paper on it in high school, which tells you how old I am. If a CD reissue came out, I'd be one of the first in line to buy it!
Name: Nick Country: South Africa Date: Fri May 10 13:18:01 2002 Comment: Recently rediscovered my vinyl Neil Young collection. They sound great. OTB a glaring ommission.
Name: David Sell Country: USA Date: Fri May 10 04:13:15 2002 Comment: Come on Neil. There's no valid reason why you should not release this on CD for your fans.

Name: Russell Hubley Country: USA Date: Thu May 9 19:06:55 2002 Comment: This is my favorite Neil album and one of his most moving and personal - this is the album that separates real Neil Young fans from those who think every album should be another rehash of Harvest.

Name: Lemmy Country: U.S.A. Date: Tue May 7 18:57:18 2002 Comment: Reward those of us that have faithfully collected your music as well as paid top $ for your shows! Such pleasure from such a simple request! The way I figure it, I've got only another 30 years before I assume room temperature, and my first 40 were made enjoyable by the sweet sounds of your music.

Name: Matthew Kupchinsky Country: USA Date: Sun May 5 20:40:39 2002 Comment: Neil, On The Beach seems to be a fine record, from what I can hear. Walk On is fantastic and I really think you ought to consider putting it out for the public to embrace. However, its your deal, and if you have reasons for it, then that's all on you. I respect an artist who isn't putting something out just for some extra income. Much love and peace, and I hope to see you this summer in Central Pennsylvania All the best: Matthew

Name: Josh Whitney Country: USA Date: Sat May 4 23:32:35 2002 Comment: By not releasing the album on CD Neil has elevated the album to an even higher status, causing fans to cherish this wonderful album even more. This is not an excuse, just the facts. Why this album ever went out of print is a mystery to me - I guess there's no acounting for the general public's lack of taste. Anyway, my vinyl copy is getting worn out from taping it off for friends as much as casual enjoyment. I hope it's true that Neil will release his back catalog on vinyl - it sounds much b

Name: Bill Zormeir Country: USA Date: Thu May 2 17:25:52 2002 Comment: One of Neil's BEST. I can't believe it has not been released! I'd like to see it released on DVD or HDCD at a minimum. Why are we relegated to CDs burned from vinyl? Talk about poor audio quality!
