4.0 out of 5 stars Need more like this, 18 Jun 2013
Stephen Stills is one of the most intersting and skillful musicians of the past fourty plus years. Having had some experience of success with Buffaloe Springfield, only to see that dashed away by rifts in the band just befor they peaked, he went on to mega stardom with Crosby, Stills & Nash where he contributed many great of their most popular songs. He then began a solo carear, with the classic Stills (Love The One You`re With/Church etc.) album and Stills 2 (Bluebird Revisited/Change Partners etc.) , and then back on the road with his Country Rock baand Manassas.
