Editorial Reviews

Crosby, Stills & Nash join forces for their first live performance video in over 20 years! Filmed during their 2012 tour, CSN 2012<?i> includes many of the trio's classic hits as well as new songs, "Radio," "Almost Gone", and "Girl From The North Country" (a cover of Bob Dylan's 1963 release). The disc also includes interviews with David, Stephen, and Graham, plus their band and crew. A must-have for any CSN fan.

This package includes 1 DVD + 2CDs with full concert footage, audio, and bonus content.

Customer Reviews

They sound as good and even better than ever.
Lloyd Guiberteau
At first I rated this cd OK, but I had to change it to two stars because I would not want to mislead anyone into purchasing it.
Rick
If you like the guys individual stuff, or Crosby/Nash, CSN or CSN&Y, especially their older stuff, just buy it and enjoy!

The good:
(1) David and Graham's lead vocals sound strong and clear.
(2) Stephen's guitar playing is TOP NOTCH. The man's lead guitar burns away and he plays with a fire and conviction of a master.
(3) Kick-butt backing band. Great drumming and a tight ensemble sound
(4) Good value for the dollar. Two CDs and one DVD for less than $20.00.

The not-so good:
(1) Stephen's voice is shot. As a huge Stills fan, this is a painful reality for me to accept. His harmonies waver a lot too.
(2) Because Stills' harmonies aren't spot-on, Crosby and Nash's vocalizing suffers too whenever Stills is part of the mix. Having seen C&N as a duo, they sound much better without Stills.
(3) The new songs, "Radio" and "Almost Gone" are nothing special and tend to meander. Their cover of "Girl From The North Country" is so-so, as well. It helps explain perhaps why the covers album project was shelved.

CSN has not exactly flooded the market with new releases - the latest release of the 3 together being the CSNY release of "Deja Vu Live" which was extremely Neilocentric, to say the least. So for all fans this is a very welcome occasion to hear an official, brilliantly recorded concert.

And thankfuly they deliver a profound evening, mixing the old classics with newer songs, including Graham Nash's controversial and poignant tribute to Bradley Manning "Almost Gone". And diving deep into their impressive back catalogue, specially Stephen Stills who come up with the rarely performed "As I Come Of Age" and "So Begins The Task" (both played at the CSNY 1970 tour). Especially the first is truly magic, providing one of the moments of transcendent (vocal) beauty that is unique for this trio.

As for the backingband it's almost the same as on the Crosby-Nash: In Concert with the addition of Todd Caldwell on the Hammond B-3. a band who knows how to respectfully lay back but also can rock with the best of them all anchored by the drumming of Steve DiStanislao (known for his work on David Gilmour's "Island"-album and following tour).

Much malign has been said about Stills's vocal, but actually his singing is better here than it has been in many years really enabling him to hit the higher notes. And his legendary guitarplaying as firery and riveting as ever. Graham Nash - probably one of the all time most underrated songwriters - and David Crosby still delivers their trademark harmony vocals.

This band has for whatever reasons always attracted a certain animosity and some decisevely unfair criticism.

...and get the Blu-ray version of CSN 2012, available with the 2 CD's of the concert, only available at Best Buy, and it is less expensive than the Blu-ray alone from Amazon (sorry Amazon!).

Still listening to it (audio version on my computer) for the first time, but definitely agree with the other reviewers. Stills' voice is no longer what it once was, but it's better than it's been, C&N sound great, the band is awesome, and I love that they reached into the Manassas catalog for some of Stills' best writing.

Long live CSN! Really wish they would finish the covers album.

This set is the best. They sound as good and even better than ever. The band is great and the harmonies are robust and full. There are 25 songs on the DVD including some new ones - there are some long standards that may be missing such as Delta but that makes room for songs that are rarely performed in concert. There are interviews with the band and CSN. I bought it today at Best Buy for 16.99. Someone made mention of the audio but believe me the material and performances overcome the means. Stills sounds better than he has in years and also looks like he lost weight as does David Crosby. It appears they may be taking better care of themselves. Hopefully this will help them stay around longer. The two CD's of the material are the big bonus here. A great bargain for one of the best groups to last through so many years. Love IT !

I probably will be repeating what many other reviewers have said but I'll add my thoughts. First of all, Crosby, Stills and Nash (and Young) are....or should I say were...an iconic musical group of the folk rock age. I grew up listening to them having several of their albums, listening to their beautiful melodies and forthright lyrics which are considered classic by anyone's musical standards.

The voices of these once angelic-like harmonious geniouses are gone. I almost feel embarrassed for them as I listen to them try to recreate the harmonies which were so adored in the past. In all due respect to Stephen Stills, his voice sounds the worst which unfortunately brings down Graham Nash and David Crosby. When he sings solo, he sounds a little better, but not much. But the bad doesn't end with Stills. Nash sounds a little better but his harmonizing sounds off at times also. Crosby sounds the best and he seems to carry the others which otherwise would have been like listening to karaoki on a cruise ship. Believe me, this pains me to be this negative and I kind of feel guilty with this review knowing how much I loved them and still do.

Having said all that, the music of CSN speaks for itself and the band does a great job with every song. No complaints regarding the musicians and production! But the good stops there. As a reviewer said, this live recording should not be your first CSN listening experience. What a shame! It's almost like watching an athlete who instead of retiring, continued on way too long which diminshed their greatness. Only a long time fan of CSN (+ Y) will know how truly awesome this group is and will forever be. I just hope they won't be judged by this live performance.

track list for cd dvd edition from CSN website
That's unfortunate the 3 encores were not included on the 2nd CD of the DVD/CD edition, like they were with CSN 2012 (the CD edition). So thank you for making my selection on this easier by just picking up the CD's that include encores. Read More
