  • 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...

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.

  • Weird Al Yankovic Spoofs CSNY In Mission Statement Video
  • For an eight-day period that ended yesterday "Weird Al" Yankovichas unleashed a new video a day featuring tracks off his new album, Mandatory Fun.The last video in the series is for the song "Mission Statement," which parodies the styleof Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. "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!).

  • Weeks into the big Crosby Stills Nash and Young reunion tour, Neil Young released On The Beach, an album he described as "probably one of the most depressing records I've ever made". Early reviewers seemed to agree. The album failed to make the Pazz and Jop Critics Poll that year. When the record industry entered the CD age, On the Beach was one of the few albums Neil Young didn't bother to release to disc. Until 2003. "It was only a reflection of what I was going through at the time." Young shrugged when he was asked why the album hadn't come out. It was something America was going through at the time. The

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.

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.

The first-ever set of recordings from those shows is fittingly over-the-top - three discs and one DVD with footage ... Stills' 'Change Partners' and reveling in a compatibility that often escaped them offstage. With strong then-new material from all four - including Graham Nash's agitated 'Fieldworker,' Stills' Latin-soul 'My Angel,' David Crosby's ethereal 'Carry Me' and several Young songs, especially the wrenching 'Pushed It Over the End' - CSNY 1974 may be the closest we'll come to hearing a mid-Seventies reunion album from this band. (After the tour, the group convened for a new record but fell apart yet again.) In another of Young's songs here, the droll honky-tonk 'Love Art Blues,' he sings, 'I went and played too hard and I lost my fun.' It's a prophetic line for a tour that pushed a great band over the edge but left us, finally, with this overabundance of treasures." - David Browne, Rolling Stone "CSNY 1974" Trailer Wolves In The Throne Room - Celestite "The black sheep of black metal, a genre in which all normal human values of decency are inverted, are required to be polite and well behaved.

  • 40 Year Itch : CSNY Begins Doom Tour in Seattle
  • "It was insane.We were completely high every moment. Cocaine, marijuana - oh, and sleeping pills, too, because you have to come down." Graham Nash On July 9, 1974, in Seattle, Crosby Stills Nash and Young began a notorious two month 31-concert, 24 city stadium tour that has just been documented in a new box set called CSNY 1974. ( You can stream four tracks here. ) Rehearsals lasted for three weeks at Neil Young's Broken Arrow ranch in La Honda. Stills told Crawdaddy's Cameron Crowe: "Neil built a beautiful stage right across the road from his studio. We get out there in the sun and play for about four ... inter-band squabbling. The tour was supposed to end in a recording session for a new album tentatively titled Human Highway ( the title cut, "Tonight's The Night" and "New Mama" were all going to Neil's contributions to the album). Obviously that never happened. For a single soundbite try road manger Chris O'Dell's memory might explain why: "One time they spilled cocaine on the carpet. They just got down on the floor and sniffed it off the carpet. I just went, 'Oh my God, this is so weird.' I'd never seen anything like it. They probably don't remember that." 40 Year Itch : CSNY Begins Doom Tour in Seattle

Regular readers may remember that this band wowed us at the Lounge Stage, the all-day Thursday artist-run festival-within-a-festival that Falcon Ridge has taken under its wing, with an amazing acoustic take on Smashing Pumpkins hit 1979; since then, their recent cover of Joni Mitchell-slash-CSNY Woodstock, with local darling Heather Maloney, made the New York Times, bringing fame and hopefully some modicum of momentum to the eclectic folkpop band. Of course, Darlingside has been around for a while yet, and as with many new favorites, a dig into the archives can be

  • Hear Neil Young's 'Only Love Can Break Your Heart' From 'CSNY 1974'
  • We're now just a week away from the release of CSNY 1974. Over the past few weeks, Rolling Stone has debuted David Crosby's "Almost Cut My Hair," Stephen Stills' "Change Partners" and Graham Nash's "Pre-Road Downs." It's now time for our final premiere, and you probably figured out by the pattern who's next. Here's Neil Young's "Only Love Can Break Your Heart" live in 1974. The song originally appeared on After The Gold Rush, but was first played live at a Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young concert in May of 1970. It was a perfect track for the quartet's lush harmonies and became a regular highlight of the 1974 reunion tour as well as the group's 2006 Freedom of Speech outing.The Oral History of CSNY's Infamous 'Doom Tour'Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young last performed at the 2013 Bridge School Benefit, but they haven't toured in eight years. Graham Nash holds out hope they'll hit the road at least one more time. "I just want to let people know what great music we could make because drugs are out of the way now," he told Rolling Stone last year. "Stephen and David are totally straight now, and so alive! It would be fantastic. That's what would happen in my perfect world." The tour came at a time when Young was writing songs at a furious pace, and he often tried out new material on stage, playing some songs only a handful of times. CSNY 1974 preserves such rarities as "Love Art Blues," "Pushed It Over The End" and "Don't Be Denied." The rarest track is "Goodbye Dick," a song they played August 14th, 1974 at the Nassau Coliseum, just five days after President Richard Nixon resigned in disgrace.Fans can finally check out CSNY 1974 when it hit shelves on July 8th. The album will be available in a variety of formats, including a 3 CD/DVD set, a Pure Audio Blu-Ray (192kHz/24-bit) and a 16-track single CD. Many

For now, Rick Rosas will take bass duties with the band and vocalists Dorene Carter and YaDonna West will be added to fill in for Talbot's backup vocals. Rosas has worked with Young before in both Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, Buffalo Springfield and as a member of his solo band.

  • Graham Nash: CSNY may release Deja Vu box set
  • With CSNY's 1974 tour box set due for release in the UK and Europe on July 7, Graham Nash has revealed that they might release another archival project. Speaking to Rolling Stone, Nash said: "I'm toying with the idea of redoing the Deja Vu album. When we made the album we were restricted by the technicalities of how many minutes you can get onto a side of vinyl without having to compress everything. It meant we had to fade everything out." Nash continued, "We recently did a mix of one of David's songs that went all the way through from beginning to end. I thought to myself, 'I'd like to hear 'Carry On' without ... want it to go all the way to the end when Dallas [Taylor] put his drumsticks down. I want to hear the jam we did at the end of 'Everybody I Love You'. I might talk to the boys about doing the entire Deja Vu without fading any of the songs." Nash also said they have professionally filmed footage from the CSNY shows at New York's Fillmore East in March, 1970. "That's an entire other project," he told Rolling Stone. "Those shows we did at the Fillmore East were absolutely the best shows we ever did in our lives and that's all been filmed. It's just a question of whether we have the time and desire to put them out." You can watch the trailer for CSNY 1974 here.

  • Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young - Deja Vu: Live (from Quietus)
  • Upon returning from catching Neil Young live in a Kentish field, a young Turk of my acquaintance, hot for info on his new-found hero, recently asked me "...who were the other three people in Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young?" The question was delivered with no hint of irony whatsoever...

  • 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, and Young Four Way Street Atlantic 82408 1971 Touted as one of the worst live albums of all time by Dave Marsh's Book of Rock Lists, Four Way Street may be anything but that. Sure, it's sloppy, poorly recorded and a bit self-indulgent, but hey, it was 1970 and it does not compare with the bloated carcasses released later in the decade (Zep's The Song Remains The Same comes to mind)...

  • 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...

Poor old guys can't leave politics alone--there's more ecology and militarism here than when they were figureheads of pop revolution, and though the rhetoric is predictable, the impulse has a woozy nobility...

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...

Who would have figured that none of them would remember that rock and roll is also supposed to be funky--and fast...

  • American Dream' fades out on the line "Why not keep on singing anyway?" – and that lackadaisical slogan seems to sum up the spirit in which the first Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young studio album since 1970's Déjà Vu was made. 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.....

  • Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young - Deja Vu (from Rolling Stone)
  • 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...

  • Between two miserable bootleg albums Wooden Nickel and Live at the Forum, atrocious not so much due to the production imperfections common to bootleg recording but largely because of the wretched workmanship of the group themselves and six cuts on the two Woodstock albums which collectively constituted a monumental disaster in the history of live recording, it seemed to me that, however one might view their two studio albums.

  • Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young - CSNY/Deja Vu Live (from Rolling Stone)
  • The highlight of this soundtrack to CSNY: Déjà Vu, Neil Young's film about the group's 2006 Freedom of Speech Tour, comes after Young sings "Let's Impeach the President" to an Atlanta audience that suddenly divides like Congress, equally booing and cheering. 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. His squiggly guitar blasts also act as ......

  • Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young - Looking Forward (from Rolling Stone)
  • Thirty years ago, four L.A. guys spun out of three illustrious Sixties bands -- the Byrds, Buffalo Springfield and the Hollies -- and, with a name that sounded like a law firm, achieved sonic immortality. 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...

  • Crosby Stills Nash & Young - Looking Forward (from NME)
  • Looking forward is all very well, but 1999 findsCrosby Stills Nash & Young looking more like participants in a stage adaptation of The Wind In The Willows. Formerly the hairiest harmonisers in the stool-rock canon, pushing their close-order post-Woodstock vocalising before them like a branded mule, now their bandelero duds moulder in a ranch closet as they drive, unleaded, towards the new millennium.
