CSNY, 1974 (Rhino)/ OF THE WEEK; Bev Bevan's albums.
CSNY, 1974 (Rhino) |SUPERGROUP CSNY comprised David Crosby of The Byrds, Stephen Stills of Buffalo Springfield, The Hollies' Graham Nash and Neil Young, also a former member of Buffalo Springfield.
During 1969 and 1970 the band had major hits in the USA with Suite Judy Blue Eyes, Woodstock, Teach Your Children, Ohio and Our House. Their only UK success was Marrakesh Express.
Going their own ways then, they reformed in 1974 to tour North America from West to East. Beginning in Seattle on July 9, they wound up the tour in Westbury, Long Island on September 8. There was one final show to play, though, and that was here in England - at Wembley Stadium on September 14. They headlined an amazing bill that also included Joni Mitchell, The Band and Tom Scott's LA Express. That epic tour is captured on this magnificent triple-CD boxset which also includes a DVD and 190-page illustrated booklet.
Hear again, performed live, those wonderful CSNY harmonies on such classics as Love The One You're With, Almost Cut My Hair, Change Partners, Only Love Can Break Your Heart and Chicago.

There are eleven new songs here, all written by Petty, the best of them Fault Lines, Power Drunk and, best of all, the closing track, Shadow People.
