Captured live in London. Featuring a set of career spanning highlights in both solo acoustic and full band electric sets.Includes: "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes" "Love The One You're With" & "For What It's Worth" Mixed in stereo and 5.1 Surround
Last fall, Stills played a career-spanning concert at Shepherds Bush that was captured for LIVE AT SHEPHERD’S BUSH, a CD/DVD set. Playing both solo-acoustic and full band sets, Stills touched on nearly every facet of his prolific career: Buffalo Springfield (“Bluebird,” “For What It’s Worth,” “Rock & Roll Woman”); CSN (“Suite: Judy Blue Eyes,” “Helplessly Hoping,” “Southern Cross”); CSNY (“Woodstock,” “Carry On”); early solo (“Love The One You’re With,” “Marianne”); Manassas (“So Begins The Task,” “Isn’t It About Time”); Stills/Young (“Long May You Run”); and later solo (“Treetop Flyer,” “Wounded World”). Other highlights include covers of Bob Dylan’s “Girl From The North Country” and Tom Petty’s “The Wrong Thing To Do,” as well as a performance of “High And Dry,” a track Manassas recorded that remained unreleased until surfacing this year on MANASSAS - PIECES.

* This show is quite similar (about 75% the same) to shows I saw live at the House of Blues and at the RnR Hall of Fame (both in Cleveland, OH) in 2007 and 2008. I was really happy to see this rendition of `Isn't it About Time' recorded as I love the powerful opening bass and guitar run. For me, this alone was worth the price of the disk.
* The acoustic set is quite good, Stephen surprisingly hitting notes one thought not possible at this point. Others have mentioned this. Acoustic guitar is stellar as usual. The rendition of Johnny's Garden was on key and sung at higher tone than I can remember recently. Another stunning version of `Treetop Flyer' which I never get tired of hearing. Some (including him?) will say things got too personal and self-absorbed for Stephen as a young man, but `4+20' is one of his defining songs for the startling admission, beuatiful singing and lovely acoustic guitar. Stephen gets a little winded in the electric set during `Wounded World' and `Rock'n'Roll Woman' but finishes VERY strong with `For What It's Worth' and `Love the One You're With'. At 63, we might get winded too.
* Some years from now, it would be interesting to see Chris Stills put a show together singing only the music of his father. Chris has an incredible voice, maybe not with the power, edge, and range of the young Stephen Stills at the top of his game, but certainly close and with the flavor and tint of his old man that you readily recognize. Chris does some Manassas songs now in his shows. Maybe this is heresy but I wonder if others have thought this.
Seen you in the city, seen you on the road......(and hope to again)
I cannot add much to the other reviewer's comments on the specific details. The man is a great live performer whether playing either acoustic or electric and despite the odd performance glitches and rough edges. His voice at 63 is not quite what it was when many of the originals were recorded but still better than I expected and this set confirms my ears were not deceiving me on the night. What this recording (especially the DVD which is a song by song repeat of the CD) shows is that Stills has not lost any of his love of playing - remember when he was everywhere in the late 60s post Buffalo Springfield guesting as the Texas session supremo on many others records and that is the spirit you see on display here around 40 years later.
The electric set probably has the edge with Stills able to expand and stretch out to best effect on lead guitar and with two of the three support band members being from the Joe Walsh band of the 1970s makes the version of "Rocky Mountain Way" even more pleasurable.
I've been happily listening to the CD for a couple of weeks, and finally watched the DVD, blasting it through my big speakers. Sounded even better than the CD. "Girl from the North Country" did me in. I liked the new take on "Bluebird" and was happy to see (and hear) that they included "Wounded World."
I got a kick out of seeing Stills use a monitor. He may have a decade on me, but I had just lost my car keys, put a pair of shoes in the crisper drawer of my fridge and called my son by his brother's name (twice), so I can easily understand why it was there.
Stills' guitar playing just gets better and better. I kept rewinding to watch his hands, especially when those harmonic chimes were flying around. I'm so glad they recorded this. What could have made it perfect? "Southern Cross." But then, Amazon doesn't have 6 stars, so maybe it's a good thing it was left off!
