Four Way Harmonies [no label, 1CD]

Outtakes and unreleased tracks from the early years, plus a few live recordings.

For those fans (and especially CSNY diehards) whose interest was piqued by the recent release of Deja Vu Live and by Neil Young’s performance at Farm Aid 2008, here is a compilation of tracks from way back, all in very good sound.

Thanks to Clyde the Camel who shared these tracks on the internet. As far as we can ascertain, these tracks have never been officially released on CD.

  21. I’ve just found this site, and I love it!It’s too bad so many of these recordings (like the CSNY one above) arent available anymore. Do they become available from time to time, or is it QUICK grab it now before its gone??

  23. Beautiful! Over 2 years ago, and it is still in my top 5! Love the fun, the harmonies, the very alternate or instrumental versions! This is the gold standard in my book for an entirely listenable alternative studio album. The guys in CSNY were very inventive folk. Legends.
    If you like this, check out the Reunion concert of Buffalo Springfield from 2010. VERY good!
