41 Songs, 3 Hours 59 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young could never stay together for long. Their manager, however, convinced them to tour the U.S. in 1974 to reap the big money. And maybe record the new material in the studio and even release a live album? Ego, chaos, and dissatisfaction ensured that nothing happened after the tour. But 40 years later, thanks to Graham Nash and producer Joel Bernstein, this collection exists. This deluxe version adds 40-plus minutes of glorious professional video and a digital booklet of photos, liner notes, and credits. The complete 40 audio tracks are culled from nine different concerts that approximate the real three-hour-plus show, including electric and acoustic sets that feature a few CSNY catalog songs but largely show off new material and each member’s solo work. The video footage puts everyone in the front row as the group run through “Only Love Can Break Your Heart” and a three-guitar attack on David Crosby’s “Almost Cut My Hair.” Neil Young sits with his Martin acoustic for “Old Man.” Nash sits at the piano and leads everyone through “Our House.” The amount and quality of the material makes this set essential.

I’m loving this album!

I’ve loved CSNY since sitting on the third row of the first concert they performed after Woodstock. But I gotta say “4-Way Street” was not their finest hour, and they haven’t sounded good together live in decades. This album captures their live artistry at its finest. It totally rocks, and brings back great memories of one of the greatest bands of the 60s/70s! Wish they sounded as good today. (Well, Neil still does!)

Not up to their standards

I'm a huge Neil Young and CSN fan but there is probably a reason this was not previously released (was it?). It's not great. It sounds like the band was intoxicated, or something. They seem off key. It's just not what I'd expect from a great band like CSNY. I own all of this music anyway so I won't buy this stuff.
