Two quarters of the legendary CSN&Y group captured live in Los Angeles in 1971... and it's everything you would expect from these performers and that era. David Crosby and Graham Nash were great friends offstage too, and their personal, as well as musical, chemistry can be heard in the relaxed (like, groovy!) repartee between songs, while the all-acoustic show finds them digging through their CSN&Y and solo songbooks.
At one point Crosby jokes that this is "the loosest show on earth" and he's got a point. But his own songs are well suited to the improvisational, jazzy, acoustic feel and the two voices weave and harmonize beautifully. It's definitely a chill-out album, and a great way to uncover some of Crosby's criminally neglected solo gems.
By the way, this is DVD-Audio, not a CD which means it has to be played on a DVD player. You get on-screen access to the liner notes, lyrics, sound options, and a bonus 'easter egg' track.
A great buy for CSN&Y fans or anyone who enjoys chilled-out acoustic bliss from the brotherly love era...
