Veteran rocker Neil Young has turned to his fans for help with deciding on the next release from his archives.

The Heart of Gold hitmaker has been sifting through his old projects of late in an effort to put out as much of his work as he can before one 76-year-old devotee, named Uncle Eddie, passes away.

He’s currently considering 29 different offerings, and has called on members of the public to weigh in on which ones he should prioritize.

“We have these projects in the can right now,” he writes on his website. “We will be asking subscribers only to vote for their top three choices from this list… Watch for the official NYA (Neil Young Archives) announcement and your personal link to vote for what you think we should work on next for the fastest release of your favourite projects.”

Among the options are unreleased albums Chrome Dreams, Homefires, and Homegrown, as well as live recordings from his time with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young back in 1970, and Early Daze, featuring various 1960s songs with the band Crazy Horse.
