"CSNY 1974 (Selections) [Live]" by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young on iTunes

16 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

The standard edition of this collection features the complete 40-track concert, while the deluxe edition adds 40-plus minutes of professional video footage and a digital booklet with photos, liner notes, and credits. This Selections edition contains 16 highlights from what was a three-plus hour concert, pulled together from nine different shows during CSNY’s 1974 large outdoor football-stadium tour. While the complete album comes highly recommended, this highlight reel may suffice for casual fans, who are treated to a careful balance of the four members’ talents and songs. While Stephen Stills’ “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes,” Graham Nash’s “Teach Your Children” and “Our House,” Neil Young’s “Ohio,” and David Crosby’s “Guinevere” and “Long Time Gone” are among the CSNY highlights, many songs here were issued as solo projects, including Stills’ solo hit “Love the One You’re With” and Young’s “Old Man,” which sound right at home with their sometimes bandmates. This 40th-anniversary, first-time release was carefully assembled by Nash and producer Joel Bernstein.

About Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

The musical partnership of David Crosby (born August 14, 1941), Stephen Stills (born January 3, 1945), and Graham Nash (born February 2, 1942), with and without Neil Young (born November 12, 1945), 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 arguably the only American-based band to approach the overall societal impact of the Beatles. The group was a second marriage for all the participants when it came together in 1968: Crosby had been a member of the Byrds, Nash was in the Hollies, and Stills had been part of Buffalo Springfield. The resulting trio, however, sounded like none of its predecessors and was characterized by a unique vocal blend and a musical approach that ranged from acoustic folk to melodic pop to hard rock. CSN's debut album, released in 1969, was perfectly in tune with the times, and the group was an instant hit. By the time of their first tour (which included the Woodstock festival), they had added Young, also a veteran of Buffalo Springfield, who maintained a solo career.

The first CSNY album, Déjà Vu, was a chart-topping hit in 1970, but the group split acrimoniously after a summer tour. 4 Way Street, a live double album issued after the breakup, was another number one hit. (When it was finally released on CD in 1992, it was lengthened with more live material.) In 1974, CSNY re-formed for a summer stadium tour without releasing a new record. Nevertheless, the compilation So Far became their third straight number one. Crosby, Stills & Nash re-formed without Young in 1977 for the album CSN, another giant hit. They followed with Daylight Again in 1982, but by then Crosby was in the throes of drug addiction and increasing legal problems. He was in jail in 1985-1986, but cleaned up and returned to action, with the result that CSNY reunited for only their second studio album, American Dream, in 1988. CSN followed with Live It Up in 1990, and though that album was a commercial disappointment, the trio remained a popular live act; it embarked on a 25th anniversary tour in the summer of 1994 and released a new album, After the Storm. The trio again reunited with Young for 1999's Looking Forward, followed in 2000 by their CSNY2K tour. ~ William Ruhlmann
