iTunes Editors’ Notes

Stephen Stills’ extensive recording career is given a live retrospective from the man himself with this October 2008 concert at Shepherd’s Bush. Opening with acoustic tunes, including a touching take on Bob Dylan’s “Girl from the North Country” and a primarily solo vocal version of the Crosby, Stills & Nash classic “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes,” Stills displays his instrumental prowess with a voice that’s beautifully weathered the years. He plays several other high-demand hits, “For What It’s Worth” from his Buffalo Springfield days and his huge solo hit, “Love the One You’re With,” but the treasures are in the deep catalog with Buffalo Springfield’s “Bluebird” and “Rock & Roll Woman,” Manassas’ “Isn’t It About Time?” and “Johnny’s Garden,” his solo tune, “Change Partners,” and a cover of Tom Petty’s “Wrong Thing to Do.” The electric band is solid and leaves room for Stills to solo on the extended workouts of “Rock & Roll Woman” and “For What It’s Worth.” All lights are on Stephen.

Stephen Stills Live at Shepherd

Since the early 80's, Stephen Stills has played sporadic solo tours when time away from the mothership CSN(Y) left him time. These bands generally were a quartet of guitar/keyboard/bass and drums, usually anchored by Joe Vitale. Live at Shepherd's Bush accurately captures the Stephen Stills experience you will get should you see him when he comes to your neighborhood. Starting solo here, as he did in the show, acousticly, he opens with his big I Tunes era hit Treetop Flyer. Stephen works through examples of his acoustic style based on folk and and the blues. He is in fine voice (his new hearing aids really seem to have him singing on key these days!) and is very talkative between tunes. Suite: Judy Blue Eyes transitions the set to electric, and here is where I love this set best. Stephen Stills plays some fine guitar: rough; searing; soaring; sustain; clear and concise. The tone just hits hard, the great kind of hard that was the balls of CSN. I couldn't help thinking this is Stephen's Crazy Horse. I especially love the revivals of Isn't It About Time; Rock and Roll Woman and Bluebird. In short, Stephen rocks! A fine way to get your Stephen Stills fix whether you are a seasoned fan or just stopping by for the first time.

Love it...

I guess I'm one of those strange people who doesn't mind that their rock star has gotten older and things "just ain't the same." I loved this album because it isn't the same ol' slick packaged deal. How refreshing. Yeah, Stills' voice is a little ragged and shows the wear and tear of time and too many smokes. Last time I checked the calender it's been at least 40 years since many of these tunes were torching up the airwaves. The fact that they still spark me all these years says a whole lot. The guitar playing still thrills me and the format--a live concert where Stills is obviously havin' fun--is something different and a pleasure to listen to. I enjoy the album for the energy and variations on some wonderful favorites.

My only regret is that I was not at Shepherd's Bush to catch this live.......

Ugh. Retire already.

Stephen Stills has contributed a great deal to music. I consider myself a big fan. That being said, his voice is gone and there is no care put into the guitar playing anymore. The new Manassas release, Pieces, is great (because it's old) but this live experiment is just sloppy and sad. Painful.
