  • Stopped making sense: CSNY 1974
  • I've been spending a lot of time with CSNY 1974, a new 3CD/1DVD box set culled from the famed folk-rock group's arena tours of that year. I've been a fairly casual Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young fan for a long time, but a fan of a certain type--namely a Neil Young obsessive with a lesser regard for the rest of the group. Yesterday's heavy listening to this (fucking awesome, I should say up front) box shifted my thinking significantly. When I first spun CSNY 1974 a few months back, I remember taking note of the vast chasm separating a Neil contribution like, say, "On the Beach"--one of his deepest and most ... valuable, than the latter. But what I was overlooking was the weird alchemy of the so-called supergroup. The way that the coexistence of disparate talents can shed new light on each one, even if, for a moment, one seems like the obvious sun, with the others acting as mere minor satellites. I'm not sure CSNY quite rivals Fleetwood Mac in this department, i.e., in the sheer depth of their genius arsenal. Seeing Nicks, Buckingham and Christine McVie on the same stage a few weeks ago reminded me how unlikely it was that those three pop magicians, each with such a different appeal, ended up in the same band, but CSNY have their own special kind of wonder. Listening to this new box set, you really feel the cycle of personalities in this band. I've spent countless hours with Young's solo work, and a lot of time with Graham Nash's excellent 1971 solo debut, Songs for Beginners, but before I got ahold of CSNY 1974, Stephen Stills and David Crosby were both a bit of a mystery to me. This set has made me an ardent fan. There's something so soulful and plainspoken about a song like "Almost Cut My Hair," Crosby's meditation on "letting [his] freak flag fly" after nearly stowing it for good, or Stills's ragged roots-rock

  • Neil Young on David Crosby: "If you make a mistake you have to fix it right away"
  • Neil Young appeared as a guest on Howard Stern's SiriusXM radio show on October 14. During the 75 minute interview - which you can hear below - Young reiterated his recent proclamation that CSNY would never play live again, as well as his Pono digital music service, views on the Woodstock Festival and his upcoming new album, Storeytone. He also addressed his ongoing environmental concerns. When asked about his recent announcement that Crosby Stills Nash & Young would never tour again, Rolling Stone reports that Young confirmed a reunion will "never happen." "Playing with Stills and Nash was ... together for a long time. We did a lot of great work. Why should we get back together and celebrate how great we were? What difference does it make? It's not for the audience, it's not for money either." Discussing the Woodstock movie, Young complained that the cameras on stage interfered with CSNY's performance. "They didn't have to be right there on the stage," he said. "They're cameras, hello! Use zoom, dickhead. We were playing music and there's some jerk standing there in black clothes. We're playing music, get out of there." Speaking about Storeytone, which is due for release in November, Young said,

Comparisons aside, Greylag as an album bursts with fully realised ideas and harmonies - Burn On is a gorgeous tour of after-hours rock, reviving a sound we thought long-lost. It's quite a short album, and in all honesty the band do the post-CSNY thing better than when they're trying to butch it up (Walk The Night, closing the album, will back us up on that). Still, Greylag are full of sumptuous, guitar-picked melodies and, while this feels like a gentle taster of what they can do, we're very excited to see them bloom. REVIEW:

Good to fairly/very good audience recording. Here's one for Job Hunter. For some, the missing link between the CSNY 1969 tour and the 4 Way Street live album. Thanks to JEMS, BK; and to mjk5510 for sharing the show at Dime. Uploader's notes: The year 1970 was a turbulent time for both America and CSNY. Problems for the latter began on April 14 when Stephen Stills crashed his car and fractured his wrist, thereby delaying the upcoming CSNY tour, ... on Stills' recently completed, self-titled solo album. Then, on May 10, Stills was thrown from a horse, tearing a knee ligament only two days before the re-scheduled opening date. After conferring with doctors, it was decided Stills would carry on, albeit wearing a cast, and with that looming backdrop, CSNY took the stage in Denver to finally start the tour. Though praised in the press immediately after, through the passage of time, conventional wisdom around the Denver '70 show shifted dramatically - it has been described as everything from unsteady to disastrous.

A bit country-ish in places aswell. The ending "Your own way" is a beautiful piece, perfectly suited as the finish of this album. A bit too CSNY for me, though. Overall, as a conclusion, I find only two songs to be really good: "The martyr" and "What to do". The other tracks are more in the vein of american folk-rock like CSN(Y), Gram Parsons or The Byrds. There is really no fault in that. I like that kind of music alot but not when mixed like

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. It was one of our great songs from Stephen, one of our most popular songs, but I didn't find a performance that affected me like the thirty-nine other tracks did,

  • Review: Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young - Music - The Austin Chronicle
  • Woodstock be damned. Peace, love, and understanding sprouted in January 1967 during San Francisco's Human Be-In, peaked three summers later at Max Yasgur's 600 acres in upstate New York, and died that December (1969) at the hands of the Hells Angels securing Altamont Speedway for the Rolling Stones. Nixon, Vietnam, and Watergate won out. Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young performed at both Woodstock and Altamont, a beacon of folk idealism at the former, and harbinger of ego and excess by the latter...

Its folksy guitar figures and steady stomping rhythm sound like the wind whipping over rolling hills -- or is that just CSNY at their most Fleetwood Mac? Apparently they're named for a type of goose that lingers behind other migrant birds to "hold back and observe," and although "Another" pleasantly ambles along, it never loses sight of where it's going.

  • To many, CSNY is a artifact of the hippie era, known more for writing a song in an insurance ad ("Our House") then for the other accomplishments they achieved. At loose ends during 1968, and either fired from their respective bands (David Crosby from The Byrds, Stephen Stills from Buffalo Springfield), or, in case of Graham Nash, leaving The Hollies and journeying to America, somehow the trio met up in California and the rest, as they say, is history...

That's far too big of a gap to think that the full Soundscan survey, used by Billboard, will show any different conclusion for the week (unless they find a way to break Al's album into multiple chart entries like they did with Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young last week). Farther down the chart, Morrissey's World Peace is None of Your Business sold an estimated 13,500 to place him somewhere between 18 and 20.

"Mission Statement's" lyrics contain a number of the buzzwords used by corporate officersfor big conglomerates around the world. "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!).

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.

  • 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.

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.
