What satisfied customers have told us

Great stuff. Fantastic to have an updated version of this great book. Thanks!

Hi - I got my copy last Friday! Fantastic work!!! Thank you very much
Thanks Pete … the book arrived here down under this week – awesome work. 
Hi there, thanks for fast shipping! Again… a fantastic book, that makes my heart jumping! Thanks to Pete Long a lot!
The book's here, thanks so much! It's a phenomenal improvement on the first edition, just incredible.
Finally I've found some time to look into the new edition of GOTR. It's a wonderful book, much improved over the first edition. Congratulations.

The first edition of Ghosts On The Road was published in 1996 and immediately became recognised as a valuable resource for Neil Young enthusiasts worldwide. The updated and revised edition will be published in early 2007 and will contain additional chapters relating to the years 1996 through to 2006 together with considerable expansion of many previous chapters. Author Pete Long has spent a good deal of time revising particular sections of the book and his work on the Buffalo Springfield box set and an article in the NYAS magazine Broken Arrow regarding the Time Fades Away tour in 1973 bear testimony to the expansion.   

The author says "I could only justify offering a revised version if it contained sufficient extra information.  I did not want anyone, particularly those who already had a copy of the first edition, to feel that they were not getting a significantly improved book."

With over 520 pages (the first edition ran to 282) the book has a number of additional features. While the basic layout and style remain unchanged there are now areas included for nearly all shows performed post 1969. Virtually all missing or incomplete set lists from 1983 onwards have been completed although we would love to hear from anyone who has information related to a number of items listed below.  In addition song charts for all the major tours have been included as appendices.  Sample pages from Chapter 13 can be viewed (Adobe Acrobat is required for this - if you have not got this installed, Get Adobe Acrobat Reader here.) together with the corresponding song chart by using the button at the top left of this page or clicking here.

Can you help with set lists, dates, venues & support acts ?
There is some information that is still missing and it may well be that you can provide this for last minute inclusion. We would love to hear from you if you have a confirmed set list for any shows prior to 1976 that were incomplete in the first edition - we have added a number from recordings that have surfaced in recent years but you may know of other more obscure items. Also needed are confirmed set lists for Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN 16th September 1978, Clarkston, MI, 18th September 1978, Sydney 16th March 1985, a complete set list for Eugene 19th February 1989, a complete set list for the Paha Sapa Music Festival in Rapid City, SD on 2nd July 1989,  a complete set list for the Marriott Marquis on 29th October 1996 and a complete set list for the Gala Benefit at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, NY on 16th November 2005.

Also we are still looking for confirmation of some show dates and venues  and a confirmation of support acts - a list of requirements may be found here.
