41 Songs, 3 Hours 16 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young could never stay together for long. Their manager, however, convinced them to tour the U.S. in 1974 to reap the big money. And maybe record the new material in the studio and even release a live album? Ego, chaos, and dissatisfaction ensured that nothing happened after the tour. But 40 years later, thanks to Graham Nash and producer Joel Bernstein, this collection exists. This deluxe version adds 40-plus minutes of glorious professional video and a digital booklet of photos, liner notes, and credits. The complete 40 audio tracks are culled from nine different concerts that approximate the real three-hour-plus show, including electric and acoustic sets that feature a few CSNY catalog songs but largely show off new material and each member’s solo work. The video footage puts everyone in the front row as the group run through “Only Love Can Break Your Heart” and a three-guitar attack on David Crosby’s “Almost Cut My Hair.” Neil Young sits with his Martin acoustic for “Old Man.” Nash sits at the piano and leads everyone through “Our House.” The amount and quality of the material makes this set essential.

Better than 4 Way Street

Thank you, Crosby and others for this. The energy blows away 4 Way Street. This definitely adds in no other way to their body of work. Really glad I bought it.

Just Like Being Their In 1974

Saw their 1974 show in Cleveland Ohio along with about 90,000 other fans. My first outdoor concert and will never forget. Opening acts were Jesse Colin Young, Santana, and The Band. Thanks for releasing this and the trip down memory lane.

Shockingly mediocre

Agree with SantaCruzing: the vocals on this set are generally bad, particularly Stills' singing. Don't bother with this.
