    one of the best way to see them is by either renting or buying the woodstock 1969 film in either VHS or DVD Block buster tends to carry them. at least they do here.

    Yes I love CSN, I was raised on their music, but last time they came here to tour (maybe three or four years ago) front row tickets were $380!!!!!!!!!! I refuse to pay that much.

    deja vu is such a good album. almost cut my hair is such a good song. CSN's selftitled album is terrific too.

    I saw them front row twice this year... :p check ebay...

    I owned a Martin D-35 that belonged to David Crosby, for a bit... it had a stain on it from where he dropped a McRib sandwich on it, or so its said, back in the seventies. I bought it from a luthier who lived in Georgia, at the time, and I actually managed to get in contact with a former roadie and he set me up with free tickets. There's a thread about it in the old forum's archives somewhere. Haven't managed to catch neil young yet... but I f-ing love Neil. I've also had the pleasure of meeting them... but not neil.
     
  14. those r my 2 fav. albums!!! four way street is the best!

    Their harmonies are amazing. And the song arrangements as good as it gets.
    My faves are Suite Judy Blue Eyes, Wooden Ships and especially 'Long Time Gone'

    "Hear, you must hear what the people say,
    You know there's something that's goin' on here,
    That surely, surely, surely won't stand the light of day.

    And it appears to be a long,
    Such a long, long, long time before the dawn.
    Speak out, you got to speak out against
    The madness, you got to speak your mind,
    If you dare.
    But don't try to get yourself elected.
    If you do you had better cut your hair.

    'Cause it appears to be a long time,
    Before the dawn."

    The whole vibe of that song just blows me away to this day.

    And 'Carry On/Questions'

    Where are you going now my love?
    Where will you be tomorrow?
    Will you bring me happiness?
    Will you bring me sorrow?
    Oh, the questions of a thousand dreams
    What you do and what you see
    Lover can you talk to me?

    Girl when I was on my own
    Chasing you down
    What was it made you run?
    Trying your best just to get around.
    The questions of a thousand dreams
    What you do and what you see
    Lover can you talk to me?

    Just an amazing band without without Neil.

    I agree with the suggestion to rent the 69 Woodstock DVD or tape if you've never seen their performance. It was magical...

    CSNY could be a soundtrack to my youth. I can't hear one of their songs without being reminded of times past. I don't know all the albums by name, but listened to them so much. Deja Vu I think I had (as a vinyl LP of course), and Neil Young's Harvest (I know, just Neil) but they were such an influence. I remember hearing Ohio and being so confused (I was very young) and thinking what a fucked up place the world was.

    hahaha... Graham is a really... romantic kinda guy. He has that soft sweet vibe around him.
     
  20. i love them even if i had just their 2 first album... whatever after their third album in 77 they loosed somethin' and i will probably never buy their followin' albums...
    I specially love Guineverre and Wooden Ships...but me and my brother are not thinkin' the same...i think that the Jefferson Airplane version of "Wooden Ships" is superior and my brother find that the CSNY version of the song is better . What is your advice ?
