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

41 Songs

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.

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
