4.0 out of 5 stars Essential Stills...., 16 Jan 2014
This review is from: Stills (Audio CD)
Sometime just after 1972's classic 'Manassas', Stephen Stills lost it. So seems to be the theory. Well 1975's 'Stills' goes some way to disproving that idea. This is probably his last great solo album, and remains very much an underrated gem. A strong set of songs, classy band of musicians(C&N, Ringo Starr, Dallas Taylor) helping out, and a focused and confident Stephen Stills in fine voice, what more could you ask for. My own favourites are 'Turn Back The Pages', 'In The Way', 'First Things First' and 'Myth Of Sisyphus'. Quite how the last track didn't make it onto the box set is beyond me. In my opinion, the weakest song on the album is the cover of Neil Young's 'New Mama', which i think i prefer acoustic. It's safe to say that you can add 'Stills' to the list that includes 1 & 2, and 'Manassas', of essential albums by Stephen Stills.
