Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young Announce Release Date For 1974 Live Album

Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

After nearly 30 years in the vaults, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young are finally going to put out a live album from their 1974 reunion tour. The tentative release date for the disc, which has been in the works for a year, is August 27.

Speaking to Rolling Stone, Graham Nash could barely contain himself knowing that this music will finally be heard again. “It’s going to f—in’ stun people,” Nash said. “We only multi-tracked eight or nine shows from the tour, and we’ve chosen the best from those gigs. We’ve had to do a little tuning, but not that much…But the spirit of the band! If I take myself out the band and look at it, it was a f—in’ great band.”

David Crosby is equally ecstatic, and adds some of his own immodesty, to which he happily admits. “I am one of the most egotistical people on this planet,” he said. “When I hear this s—, I think, for a moment we were probably the best band. It’s startlingly good.”

Often known as the ‘Doom Tour,’ CSN&Y’s 1974 stadium-filling reunion was plagued by their disintegrating internal relationships, which wasn’t helped by their increasing drug use. Neil Young also admitted that he was upset by the lack of new material brought to the table by his bandmates.

As of now, the album doesn’t have a title. However, given the volatility of its members, even that could lead to one of the band’s legendary blowouts. “I want to call it ‘What Could Possibly Go Wrong?'” Crosby added. “I’m going to dig my heels and seriously fight for that. You can’t hear that without laughing your head off. It’s important to look at yourselves with a sense of humor in retrospect and realize what gigantic egos we had and what idiots we were. But I think it’s a great title. If I don’t get it, I’ll threaten to quit the band – at which point I’ll be reminded that there’s no band to quit!”

Meanwhile, Crosby, Stills & Nash are preparing to go out on another tour. They will spend much of May touring the South before going to Germany and France for two weeks from June 20 to July 5.
