Sloppy though it is to get David and Neil the wrong way around, (and, by the way, the last two tracks of disc one are actually on disc two) the music on this album does not deserve to languish under just one star.

This expanded version of the original adds a solo song by each of the four, (although Neil gets three by means of a nine minute medley), all of which are perfectly fine, with King Midas in Reverse an especially nice touch.

Otherwise, the album is not perfect, but it is a thoroughly enjoyable run through some of the foursomes best songs in acoustic and electric mode - and not always the way you would expect. If you like CSN&Y you will like this.

I must admit to being quite confused about the vitriol this album receives. I have been aware of it for years but have never listened to it until this morning in the car on the way to work.

Yes, performance-wise, it really is of its time. But you cant hold that against them, they were there (man), and they were, as the stock review says, totally at the zenith of their careers. It IS imperfect to say the least, but in my head CSNY/CSN/CN were never about perfection, and all about the feel (man). I'm not familiar with the original pressing, so I have no feelings about original sound and/or running order.

I always go back to the story Crosby (I think Hotel California: Singer-songwriters and Cocaine Cowboys in the L.A. Canyons 1967-1976) tells about being at Mama Cass's house in Laurel or Topanga Canyon, and she introduced Nash and Stills to him, and when they sang to together it was so incredible they fell about laughing, presumably in shock and wonder.

So, in conclusion if you want to listen to those gorgeous harmonies and lovely, hippyish lyrics, in a warm friendly atmosphere (even though it was probably recorded in huge barn-like 3000 seater arenas!) buy this, wait for a warm summer day (I'm told they do exist) sit on a stoop if you have one, light one if you got one, and enjoy.

To put it more clearly, this CD shows all the limitations of a live album, as usual sound is poor, lot of talking, nevertheless it was my first CSN&Y record some years back and I fell in love with the band. You have to remember that this is about 35 yrs old, so of course people were quite different at the time, they believed (or were supposed to believe)in peace, love and so on...nevertheless the music is still great. The version of Southern man is so much better than the "After the goldrush" version, interesting also the acoustic version of cowgirl in the sand (you won't find it anywhere else, not even in Neil Young's bootlegs). A lot of other songs are great: Chicago, The lee Shore, Right between the eyes, all of them don't suffer much from the live version. I saw some bad reviews but I think they are due to the fact that people bought it without knowing what to expect. If you buy the Woodstock record, you have to expect bad sound quality, confusion, lots of chat and so on, similarly for this record, the music might be better in the studio versions, but this remains like a historical testimony of a period, and the solos on the electric part are still great!!!

"4 Way Street" was the double vinyl album of two halves - acoustic and electric - that gave the world un-plugged rock & roll when Clapton still had long hair and MTV was a lifetime away. It was always an irresistible album, and since the current CD release has several additional tracks, the couple of less successful songs spoil the pudding even less than they did on the original release.
Only close friends with egos locked in mortal combat could have produced a manifesto as tense but as intimate. This rare combination – fierce rivalry crossed with artistic and emotional inter-dependence - comes across in several ways: Sarcastic/affectionate banter between numbers, impossibly perfect live harmonies often sung round a single mike, frantic duelling during the long improvised solos, and a collection of (with a couple of exceptions) superb examples of the singer-songwriter's craft.

The real fascination of this album, however, is the way time has played with the reputations of its stars. It was once fashionable to dismiss CSN&Y (or more realistically with hindsight, YCS&N) as a mismatched collection of solo numbers rather than a real band project, and to regard Crosby and Nash as junior partners - almost an irrelevance, in fact.
It will come as no surprise, then, that it is Neil Young whose songcraft and keening vocals make the strongest impression. He also sounds the most modern of the crew – again unsurprisingly, given that the grunge generation was so indebted to him.

The 1999 reformation of CSN&Y for a new studio album and tour is as good a reason as any for a retro look at the supergroup's definitive live recording from the early '70's, "4 Way Street". This was the double vinyl album of two halves - acoustic and electric - that gave the world the concept of unplugged rock & roll when Eric still had long hair. It was always irresistible, and, since the current release on CD has several additional tracks, a couple of less successful songs spoil the pudding even less than they did on the original release. Only close friends with egos locked in mortal combat could have produced a manifesto as tense but as intimate as "4 Way Street". This rare combination - rivalry crossed with artistic and emotional interdependence - comes across in several ways: Sarcastic/affectionate banter between numbers, impossibly perfect live harmonies often sung round a single mike, frantic duelling during the long improvised solos, and a collection of (with a couple of exceptions) superb examples of the singer-songwriter's craft.
Opinions will thus differ on whether this is really a group performance or a portfolio of solo numbers. The main competition for the spotlight is clearly between former Buffalo Springfield bandmates Stills and Young, and when they hit their respective strides the junior partners Crosby and Nash almost become an irrelevance. On the other hand, when David Crosby's superb voice is allowed to dominate, its raw-tender soulfulness carries material that might otherwise sound mediocre. Ex-Holly Graham Nash brings less to the party in the way of songwriting, but his tirelessly supportive vocal harmonising in support of stronger material from the three Americans helps bring home that this is ultimately a band project.
