  • Wild Leaves is composed of five Midwest transplants now living in Brooklyn. Though they have found their home along the Atlantic, their trademark flowering harmonies and jangling electric guitars have drawn comparisons to the Pacific sounds of The Byrds and CSNY. The band's second single, "Black River" shines with unadulterated earthy vibes and road tested rhythms. Filled with mystic imagery and Western landscapes, the song capitalizes on the journeyman quality of the band who have been on a perpetual tour since the release of 2013's "Wind and Rain" EP.

As we segue into Arrival of Nara, it's a good two minutes till a voice interrupts the fragility for a song that is more aligned with CSNY or Fleet Foxes than An Awesome Wave. One thing is immediately apparent, then: you can't call this the work of a straightforward guitar band any more.

  • CSNY's "Doom Tour" exhumed, and reconstructed into an ideal show from their stadium excursion... To call this live compilation from CSNY's 1974 tour "long-awaited" is, on one level, an act of revisionism. Certainly, it has been a long time coming, but it's also true that in the intervening 40 years, the competing egos of CSNY have done their best to suggest that if the tour itself wasn't best forgotten, there was nothing to be gained by revisiting it...

The RS review of "Thrill" threw Steely Dan into the CSNY/Spirit/The Band category -- Steely Dan sounds like The Band?! -- and referred to Fagen's voice as "rancorous." It concluded that there were "three top-level cuts and scattered moments of inspiration, but there are those instances of Steely coming on like a limp (sex toy)." Two of those top-level cuts were

  • critic’s picks: crosby, stills, nash & young: ‘csny 1974′
  • set at the Louisville Palace last spring, Graham Nash remarked that there once was a time the group would devote intermissions to tanking up on whatever chemical stimulant was at their disposal. Today, he said, the singers spend concert breaks texting their grandchildren. Well, on a lavish new archival set called CSNY 1974, we are ushered back to "once was a time" - specifically, to when a summer tour by the trio augmented by sometimes co-hort Neil Young was the year's biggest concert attraction. But being a rock success story in the '70s meant a lifestyle beset with indulgence. Add in the acrimony ... verge of burning to the ground. A proposed studio album, rumored to be so complete that a cover shot had even be taken, was scrapped and the copious amount of concert tapes many had hoped would surface s as a live album were indefinitely shelved. Four decades to the month later we have CSNY 1974, a fascinating and flawed chronicle of the lost summer when Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young let the biggest folk-rock franchise of its day go down in flames. Nash oversaw the restoration, so from a sonic standpoint the whole set - available as a single disc sampler and a comprehensive multi-disc CD/DVD/Blu Ray ... there is a lot to relish here. David Crosby, for all of his fabled excesses, sings like a bird with clear, effortless expression on chestnuts like Guinnevere and The Lee Shore and while conjuring the electric fire of Déjà Vu. To perhaps no one's surprise, though, the show stealer is Young. CSNY 1974 is loaded with seldom performed gems, especially from his landmark On the Beach album that would be released just after the tour's conclusion. From the social rant of Revolution Blues ("I won't attack you but I won't back you") to the coarse childhood remembrance Don't De Denied (from 1973's criminally out-of-print Times Fades Away) to the comparatively gentle sway of the unreleased Hawaiian Sunrise (the rumored title tune to the aborted CSNY studio record), Young sounds frightful and exact as he kicks a hearty dose of sand into the face of the boozy summer joyride that is CSNY 1974. critic’s picks: crosby, stills, nash & young: ‘csny 1974′

Over the past couple of years he's produced box sets covering the individual careers of David Crosby, Stephen Stills and himself, and he's put a lot of time in the studio listening to tape after tape from the band's epic 1974 tour for their recently released live box set, CSNY 1974. He spoke to us about the collective's sometime's tenacious relationship, what Neil Young brings to the mix, the continued relevance of his songs from the era (including tunes written about immigration, war and marijuana reform) and the elusive upcoming CSN album. And how he's trying to help the military change its image. Radio.com: Obviously you have lots of CSN and CSNY recordings to choose from. Why choose the 1974 tour for a box set? Graham Nash: I wanted people to know that CSNY is a good rock 'n' roll band. And the bootleg of our show at Wembley Stadium didn't show that. I want everybody to know that regardless of that particular show...I mean, that's who we were that night. We did 30 other shows [on that tour], but I knew that that's not what CSNY were. So I wanted people to know that we are a very decent rock 'n' roll band, from one acoustic guitar to the mayhem of all of us playing electric. There was such an incredible ... Stephen and I have a family, and painting shows, and photo shows, and book signings and stuff. It took me about four years [to do the box set], but I wanted to make sure it was right. I want people to know in a hundred years time, if they want to know at all, if they're at all curious about who CSNY were, this box set really represents what we were. We wanted the best performance of every single song, that's one of the reasons "Carry On" is not on the box set.

"I wanted to do a song about all the ridiculousdouble-speak and meaningless buzzwords that I've been hearing in office environments myentire life. I just thought it would be ironic to juxtapose that with the song stylings ofCSN, whose music pretty much symbolizes the antithesis of corporate America," Yankovic told the Wall Street Journal (how ironic!).

On the originals front, Yankovic tries his hand at a marching band-style anthem ("Sports Song") and apes the styles of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young ("Mission Statement"), the Pixies ("First World Problems"), Cat Stevens ("Jackson Park Express") and others. "I always start with the originals, because those age better," Yankovic explains. "So I get those in hand and I always do the parodies last so they can be as fresh and timely and topical as possible.

  • Ah, the healing hands of time! When Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young played the last show of their hugely successful 1974 tour, the tapes of the nine concerts that they'd professionally recorded for a potential live album were shelved. The feelings were too raw, the bad memories too fresh for anyone to touch them, no matter what treasures they held. It would be too much like living through a bad break-up, scene by scene, over and over again...

And then Crosby, Stills and Nash, appearing on the show to support their latest box set CSNY 1974, come out to add their lush harmonies to the chorus. Previously, Fallon only reunited with Crosby and Nash for a similar rendition of Miley Cyrus' "Party in the U.S.A." but this time they got the whole "band" back together. Watch the performance here.

Those guys all get credit for doing it and for maintaining a straight face throughout. Crosby, Stills & Nash also sang their classic "Teach Your Children Well." And as an online bonus, they also did "So Begins The Task," a song that appeared on Stills's 1972 album Manassas. Watch all those performances below.

Crosby, Stills & Nash were the evening's musical guest, so what bettertime for Fallon to put on his Neil uniform than for a CSNY reunion of sorts? So what exactly did "Neil Young" perform with his longtime band mates? Considering the last time Fallon's Neil sangwith Crosby and Nash, they tackled Miley Cyrus' "Party In The USA," we had a feeling itwould be a pop tune. Check out the quartet's rendition of "Fancy" by Iggy Azalea:

On last night's episode, Crosby, Stills & Nash were on hand to perform a few of their classic songs. It only made sense, then, that Fallon got in character and staged a faux CSNY reunion, combining their high harmonies to cover Iggy Azalea's "Fancy".

  • Forty summers ago, North America's greatest dysfunctional supergroup patched things up for a while, filled stadiums and left behind tales of backstage excess and shaky vocal harmonies. The first-ever set of recordings from those shows is fittingly over-the-top - three discs and one DVD with footage of eight songs. The two electric-set discs have a crackling, wired-on-something energy: Check how Stephen Stills and Neil Young trade unhinged solos on Young's "Revolution Blues...

  • Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young - Déjà Vu (from Blender)
  • On release, the first CSNY album sold 2 million copies, but it has aged badly. Young provides the sparse, stunning "Helpless" and a quirky suite called "County Girl" and collaborates with Stills on cute closer "Everybody I Love You." The rest is long on self-important hippie bluster like "Woodstock," about the festival Young later compared to "people standing around a pile of shit, looking at it."

  • Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young - 4 Way Street (from Blender)
  • For evidence of why Young was so uncommitted to CSNY even at the height of their success, consider this live set, recorded in 1970. There's a spine-tingling solo Young medley and his interesting acoustic take on "Cowgirl in the Sand," but the electric jams are turgid, and the less said about Stills's appalling and pompous "America's Children," the better.

  • Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young - Deja Vu (from Robert Christgau)
  • Of the five (or seven, I forget) memorable tunes here, N's "Our House" is a charming but cloying evocation of puppy domesticity, while both N's sanctimonious "Teach Your Children" and C's tragicomic "Almost Cut My Hair" document how the hippie movement has corrupted our young people. S half scores twice and in-law M provides the climax. Which leaves Y's "Helpless" as the group's one unequivocal success this time out...

And when S explains how when he was young old people were wrong and now that he's old young people are wrong and then disses "overfed talking heads" without ever once acknowledging overfed singing exhead C to his immediate left, I imagine some computer nerd with more brains than sense joining the arms race just to get even...

Despite pleasant melodies, the occasional interesting song and the signature harmonies, American Dream is, for the most part, a snoozefest.The enervation at the heart of this album suggests that these four veterans found themselves washed up on the shore of the late Eight.....

  • Along with many other people, I had hoped that the addition of Neil Young to Crosby, Stills, and Nash would give their music the guts and substance which the first album lacked. Live performances of the group suggested that this had happened. Young's voice, guitar, compositions and stage presence added elements of darkness and mystery to songs which had previously dripped a kind of saccharine sweetness. Unfortunately, little of this influence carried over into the recording sessions for Deja Vu...

The performance proves that material from Young's Living With War, an indictment of the Bush regime, wasn't just aimed at the converted. Young's songs are the true rocket-launchers on Déjà Vu Live.

On 1970's DTja Vu, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young restructured folk music to behave with the idiosyncratic freedom of the most stylish rock of the day, arranged with buckskin chorales that could move the heart like a George Jones song...
