CROSBY, STILLS, NASH & YOUNG
Five Way Street [The Third Eye, 2CD]
Collection of live tracks and outtakes.
Here is a collection that has circulated for a while, with some fans feeling that this is a “truly essential CSNY collection of 1968-70 rarities not to be missed”.
Meanwhile, here are some comments from Old Grey Cat:
The first set of CSNY Live material is appreciated - although the Y was most likely waiting backstage for his solo turn, as he’s not featured here. That said, Nash does harmonize with the Croz on “Guinnevere” and Croz repays in kind for “Simple Man.” Stills’ “Black Queen” comes off nicely. I’d say more but, really, there’s not much to add aside from this: “Guinnevere” is classic…
Take a deep breath and try this one on for size: Crosby, Stills, Nash, Young & Jones. CSNY&J?! Yep. CSNY guested on The Tom Jones Show and, after performing a nice rendition of “You Don’t Have to Cry” actually back Jones on “Long Time Gone.” The mixing of “hippie” with “hip” is humorous - but little else…
On November 9, 1970, the BBC In Concert series presented Mssrs. Crosby & Nash. It’s a revelation, folks. Words alone can’t express how wonderful their eight-song set is. Aside from the fact that this captures their first public collaboration as a duo and, as such, is an historic document worthy of official release, the performance itself is stunning - from Graham’s “Simple Man” to David’s closing “Traction in the Rain.” The only downside is that the sound is far from top-notch. Let’s cross our fingers and hope that producer Stephen Barncard gets his hands on the master tape and does with it what he did with Another Stoney Evening.
On the heels of that magical performance comes the audio from the BBC’s Sounding Out. Aired in early 1972, this most definitely was taped sometime in ‘71 - but who knows? Less revelatory than the C&N set, it’s nonetheless interesting, as Stills runs through the songs listed above and offers insightful comments. For instance, he explains how horses provide him an escape from the pressures of rock ‘n’ roll. Another interesting tidbit concerns his recollection of playing the folk clubs in Greenwich Village and how, each night, he hoped to earn fifteen cents - yes, fifteen cents - so that he could go across the street and buy a slice of pizza for breakfast. Also covered: the impact the Beatles’ A Hard Day’s Night had on folk musicians such as himself and John Sebastian.
The Neilster circa 1971 wraps things up… with “A Man Needs a Maid” and “Heart of Gold,” both of which are performed solo at the piano. It’s very similar to the “melody” found on the Rock ‘n’ Roll Cowboy collection, right down to the linking of the two songs - but minus the applause. It’s nice, but these tracks are neither revelatory nor insightful. They can be summed up with two words: They’re pretty.
