Biography

The musical partnership of David Crosby, Stephen Stills, and Graham Nash, with and without Neil Young, was not only one of the most successful touring and recording acts of the late '60s, '70s, and early '80s (with the colorful, contrasting nature of the members' characters and their connection to the political and cultural upheavals of the time), it was the only American-based ...

For all of the smack talk this tour has received over the years, the quality of these performances is excellent and, perhaps, a notch above those on `Four Way Street'. While 4WS features a loose and ragged sound, Tim Drummond (bass), Russ Kunkel (drums) and Joe Lala (percussion) offer more polished backing for CSNY and this set features a bit more of a studio feel. "Teach Your Children", for instance, is a much stronger version and features a full band arrangement. The vocals are also much more on point on this release. The harmonies on "Only Love Can Break Your Heart", "Ohio", an exquisite take on "The Lee Shore" (with some tasteful, bubbly electric guitar fills from Stills) and "Johnny's Garden" beat anything this listener has heard on other albums or live performances.

The real revelation is how good the CSNY treatment of each member's solo material is. Neil Young's "On The Beach", for instance, is a slow burning highlight of this set and features some classis Stills/Young guitar interplay. Nash's "Grave Concern" and Crosby's "Carry Me" are also fantastic. Stills' solo rendition of `Word Game" is absolutely stunning.
The sound is very good considering the tapes are 40 years old. There is a bit of crackling here and there and some slightly noticeable phasing effects on the vocals at times. However, these discs sound great turned up nice and loud on the stereo.

A Solid `A' for this release.

"Everybody is a better musician. And there's plenty of new songs." Steve Stills.

"It's the music, man, the music." David Crosby.

"If you can make a lot of people feel real good, you did something right." Graham Nash.

"There was some good playing," Neil Young.

By now everyone knows this music and what the group sounds like. As with most if not all live albums, the sound has been "tinkered" with afterwards in the studio. So what you hear isn't necessarily what you would've heard if you attended one of these concerts. But after 40 years can anyone really remember what each song sounded like? Needless to say the sound is very good--everything is as crisp and clean as modern technology can do for 40 year old tapes. The songs (according to Nash) are presented to simulate, and have the flow of, a concert experience--an electric first set, an acoustic second set, followed by another electric set--which works well. In this era of many people listening to only a song or two on an album--let alone three albums--if you have the time and the inclination, listen to this "concert" in one sitting. The impact and enjoyment of what you hear will go up markedly.

The DVD is okay--eight tracks from various sources--and quality. While it's nice to see the band from so long ago it's obviously not the main reason to buy this set. The massive booklet has a nice essay on the concert series with quotes from the band, individual track information, and is packed with some great photos in both b&w and color, which really add depth to the essay. Check out the series of four photos of Stills playing his electric guitar--his facial expressions will tell you about his intensity on stage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rock and Roll Will Never Die July 8, 2014
Format:Audio CD
CSNY pioneered Big Stadium live tour concerts back in the early 70"s and this set of songs will bring you back to the Golden Days - not only for the Music, but for many of us the time of youth and possibility. The year 1974 saw the end of the Nixon administration, the strong move into FM stereo radio, eight tracks, muscle cars, and half the world was smothered by the Iron Curtain of communism. Their music was our impression of freedom, love, and a good life to come.

This 40 song set will occupy a day's long of reflection and heavenly tunes. There are some songs on this set I have yet to hear, and maybe simply forgot, but it's all good. What I like is the quality of the music. The Producers Nash and Joel Bernstein clearly put forth a lot of effort selecting the best performed songs of that summer (a total of 31 concerts & 24 cities ), and the digital enhancement to make it sound up to modern standards makes one feel the tour is on for this summer. Which it is by the way with Neil Young missing - started last Sunday - Crosby, Stills, and Nash played the MAC at Monmouth University.

There are several packages available: 1) the basic version includes 40 tracks (three CD's) and a DVD of 8 unreleased video performances, plus a 188 page booklet. 2) A high resolution Pure Audio Blu-Ray edition with digital downloads, and a single CD. 3) A deluxe limited- edition in a boxed set of 6 vinyl LP's, a Pure Audio Blu-ray disc, a digital download, DVD, and a book of unseen photos of the tour.

I chose and reviewed the least expensive version (option 1). It is all about the music for me. I believe CSNY will bring forward their music to many around the world both young and old with this new set of past songs. I recommend it for everybody, and hope Neil Young will remember and join them again on a concert tour. Cool Man!!!

A great trip back in time. I first saw CSNY at the Inglewood Forum in LA. in 1970. I was 15 and paid $4 for a general admission ticket. I saw Neil Young at the Roxy (1973 Tonight's The Night Tour) the Inglewood Forum (1973 Time Fades Away) & the Last Waltz (1976) . Saw CSN at the Greek in 1984 & at Universal Studios in 1988. They cancelled the Southern California show for the 1974 tour. Always wondered what I had missed. 40 years later, I found out!

This package was put together with love & care. (Thanks Graham and Joel). Many brilliant performances on this disk (Grave Concern, Guinnivere, Wooden Ships, On the Beach, Immigration Man, Revolution Blues, Almost Cut My Hair, Word Games. Carry Me, Pushed it Over the Edge, Deja Vu). Some great harmonies (Only Love Can Break Your Heart, Blackbird, Traces, The Lee Shore, Change Partners, Mellow My Mind, Love Art Blues. Suite: Judy Blue Eyes). On some tracks the vocals or performances are a little ragged but still work (Love The One Your With, Ohio, Long Time Gone). Back then half the fun of a live rock concert was hearing different versions of songs with extended jams, new arrangements etc. All that is here. CSNY live performances always walked the edge because these guys were more about a fresh, inspired performance than a rote rendition of a tune.

The mix on Russ Kunkel's drums & Tim Drummond's bass are sensational. Kunkel has been one of the best in the biz (great tom fills). He, Drummond & Lala really deliver for CSNY. Crosby's guitar work is excellent & sometimes overlooked (listen to his Conry acoustic on Gunnivere, Martin D-45 on the Lee Shore & funky chunky driving rhythm guitar on the electric tunes). Young & Nash's songs shine on these discs.

why no combo edition?
The video is only being offered as a DVD because it was shot on video tape, which is standard definition (480p in the US). Providing the video portion as a Blu-ray (1080p) would only makes sense if the video were sourced from film.

The only alternate option would be to issue a standard def... Read More

I was there at both Nassau Coliseum NY shows. I recall quite a bit of them, being sober! These 3 CDs bring me there. If I could relive just one of the hundreds of shows I have seen, from The Beatles in 1964 on, it would be the second of the Nassau Coliseum shows. This is almost it, no matter... Read More

40 live tracks but only 8 on video?
From Thrashers Wheat:

The bonus DVD features eight songs filmed at the Capital Center in Landover, Maryland and Wembley Stadium. "The Capital Center was the one place back then filming concerts," says Nash. "We didn't even know they were doing it. It's a little funky-looking... Read More
