Biography

The musical partnership of David Crosby, Stephen Stills, and Graham Nash, with and without Neil Young, 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 the only American-based ...

Product Description

Product Description

Long-rumored and highly anticipated, CSNY 1974 captures the band’s one-of-a-kind harmonic alchemy during its remarkable outdoor stadium tour, a trek that spanned more than two months and included 31 concerts, in 24 cities, with combined audiences of over a million people. Produced by Graham Nash and Joel Bernstein, this 40th anniversary boxed set features 40 live tracks spread over 3 CDs, a bonus DVD of previously unreleased concert footage, and a 188-page booklet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Warmly welcomed 9 Aug 2014
Format:Audio CD
A lovingly assembled anthology of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young's legendary 1974 tour, the one that has consistently been decried as one of excess and arrogance or an epic dismantling of the hippie dream of peace and love. Before this marvellous collection was released, I got to see video of the Wembley show thanks to You Tube. (Were tickets really only 3.50??? How much was the booking fee?) It was my first taste of the music the foursome produced during this legendary foray, thankfully shorn of the bad press that has plagued this tour not to mention the four's own after-the-fact ambivalence towards the tour. If you haven't already done so, do go check out this 3 hour show on You Tube.

Graham Nash, who took on the role of CSN and CSNY's archivist, has cherry-picked as much as possible from the tour and assembled an ideal show. Inevitably, this might upset the purists who want the complete shows. But honestly who has the time to listen and appreciate all those individual shows? What really matters is how much of an enjoyable listening experience this box set is. The 3 CDs are beautifully sequenced and packed with sensational songs, including many Neil Young classics that were never officially released until now. Messrs Crosby, Stills and Nash are also well represented but kudos to Graham Nash for setting aside his grievances with Neil and selecting so many long-sought after songs. (And kudos to Neil for allowing these songs to appear before he could unveil them in his own Archives series). "Traces", "Love-Art Blues", "Pushed It Over The End", "Hawaiian Sunset" are brilliant and fit right in with the more familiar CSN oeuvre. I also love "The Lee Shore", one of Crosby's finest and beautifully rendered here.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Masterclass! 16 July 2014
By Boswell
Format:Audio CD
This is a wonderful reminder of how powerful CSNY were at their peak. It's a bargain if you shop around for it (available for under 30)
The book is worth the admission price alone with some wonderful photos and a great essay.Just one slight niggle. The book states that some of the recordings come from the San Francisco Auditorium on December 14th. Surely that was a Crosby / Nash duo gig (Farm Workers And Whales Benefit)? Mr Nash hasn't been trying a bit of jiggery-pokery here has he?

This could well be one of those 'you had to be there' releases to fully appreciate the sheer magnitude of a CSNY tour in 1974. This is a band which had the potential to be truly great - at least on paper - but never realised their potential due to the enormous egos involved. That said as a live act they took some beating and Deja Vu was a cracking LP..
I was lucky enough to be at Wembley on 14 September 1974 and it was quite a day. The bill was jaw dropping - as well as CSNY we were treated to The Band, Jesse Colin Young and Joni Mitchell. In the booklet Graham Nash expresses the band's disappointment with the quality of the Wembley concert, but my memory is one of being blown away by the music - the sublime vocal harmonies, the spiky duelling guitars of Stills and Young and the quality of the songs.
The sound on the discs is very good indeed. Highlights include the sublime Suite: Judy Blue Eyes, On The Beach, Neil Young's brief Goodbye Dick (about Nixon leaving the Whitehouse), Some previously unreleased songs are heard for the first time since the tour and there's one or two pretty good ones - Nash's Fieldworker and Neil Young's Love Art Blues are standouts.
For most of the album the band are together and full of energy although there are a couple of dodgy moments - Stephen Stills electrified Black Queen doesn't get anywhere near the fiery and impassioned acoustic version to be found on his 1st solo record and his duet with Neil Young on Long May You Run is pretty dire - slow and lacking the good time rhythm of the studio version.
Overall Neil Young comes out the best - 'twas ever thus - but surprisingly Graham Nash isn't far behind, his gift for melody and faultless singing provide some lovely moments. Crosby sounds superb on some songs and just plain melodramatic on others.

Alternatively, if you're new to CSN/CSNY and want to know what all the fuss was about here's the collection from the sixties and seventies era you really should own first - it'll cost you around fifty to sixty pounds I guess to get some/most of these - roughly the same price as the extraordinarily over priced 74 live box set. You'll definitely get more long term satisfaction from this list ...

Crosby Stills and Nash (1969) *
Deja Vu (1970) *
Four Way Street (1971) *
Stephen Stills (1970) *
Stephen Stills 2 (1971) *
Manassas (1972) *
If I Could only remember my name - Crosby (1971) *
Songs for Beginners - Nash (1971)
Neil Young (1968)
Everybody knows this is knowhere (1969)
After the Goldrush (1970) *
Harvest (1972) *
Wind on the Water - Crosby Nash (1975)
CSN (1977) - their last great studio album ... *

I've marked with an * the eleven discs I consider the most essential - that includes Massey Hall below .....

later add the Neil Young classics - Time Fades Away (not currently available, maybe never will be), On the Beach, Tonight's the Night, Zuma, Rust Never Sleeps, Live Rust, maybe even Decade and the you've got a great collection. There are a few others which are worthwhile too - other Crosby and Nash studio and live albums, Down the Road - Manassas, Long May You Run - Stills Young Band, Stills (1975).

Also investigate Buffalo Springfield - the box set is nicely priced now and also the Neil Young Archive Performance Series, particularly Live at Massey Hall 1971 *.

That'll do nicely.
