Editors’ Notes

Along with the Byrds’ Chris Hillman and CSN&Y drummer Dallas Taylor as well as legendary guitarist Al Perkins, Stephen Stills’ second (and final) album with Manassas also included Joe Walsh on slide guitar and keyboard player Bobby Whitlock from Derek & The Dominos. Although 1973’s Down the Road doesn’t often get as much love as its 1972 predecessor, any listener would be hard-pressed to tell these recording sessions apart. The low rumbling groove of “Isn’t It About Time” opens sounding tough, especially with Walsh’s snarling, distorted, electric slides. But following that tune, Hillman’s “Lies” shifts gears with an uplifting vibe that plays like a post-Parsons Burrito Brothers joined forces with Walsh’s James Gang. “Do You Remember the Americans” is another standout rooted in country rock similar to what New Riders Of The Purple Sage were doing then with The Adventures of Panama Red. Much like the preceding Manassas Stills sounds most comfortable here when found in the middle of a percussion-heavy, Latin-tinged jam — especially on the festive “Guaguanco de Vero.”

Customer Reviews

Manassas continued

Here is more good music by the great band that made MANASSAS. Comparisons are useless; MANASSAS was organized into four mini-albums, each with its own theme; this OTOH is just a batch of songs. But they're very good songs, for the most part, fully deserving to be alongside the 1972 release. Consider this to be just the third disc of MANASSAS, or even its bonus tracks, and you might enjoy it just fine. For best results, start with tracks 6-10 (that was side 2 in vinyl days); if it saves you a bit of $, you can skip tracks 2 & 3


Both of the Manassas records are awesome, but this one is by far my favorite. The live DVD from Germany is great too.

Great Music

This album doesn't come close to being as great as the self-titled album, but that doesn't mean the music isn't still great. "Isn't it about time" is a very catchy tune that highlights Stills' vocals, and "Lies" is also a great tune. My personal favorite on this album is "Rollin my stone." As I said before, not as great as the first album but definatley worth listening to - you can't find music like this today.
