    I don’t remember them myself, but my grandparents were fans when they were kids & they told me all about them.

  2. Deb

    Dan might be joking, but apparently CSNY were touring in 1874! Who did they open for–Buffalo Bill?

    Anyway, I’m adding this to my wish list. I’ve seen CSNY in various incarnations over the years–and those harmonies are a little more strained these days–but they’ll always have a place in my heart.

    If you want to bring back the feeling of the day, “Ohio” is hard to top but overall I’m with Steve – one of Neil’s songs would have to be the pick. (If not “Ohio” then one of the others.)

    Deb, we’ve seen them several times too but these days I find it hard to listen to how bad Stephen Stills sounds (and harder to look at that awful nanny goat chin whisker). We’ve seen three of them in 1984 (1884?), 2000 and 2009, and with Young in 2006 on their anti-war tour. We’ve seen Neil Young alone (or with Crazy Horse) in 2003, 2007, 2008 and 2012. The worst was the awful “Greendale” concert.

      Jeff, I picked up the one disc version at Wal-Mart for less than $10. I like to have CD’s in my Rogue when I’m running errands.

  4. Jeff Meyerson

    Jimmy Buffett has added “Southern Cross” to his regular repertoire in concerts in recent years and I must admit I prefer his version. But I believe that is CSN without Young.

    $34.98 is a great price.

  5. Deb

    “The Lee Shore” (aka “All Along the Lee Shore”) is another CSNY sailing song, but it’s probably too quiet for Buffett. I’ve spoken to people who are convinced “Southern Cross” is a Jimmy Buffett original.

  6. Jeff Meyerson

    Deb, he usually thanks Stephen Stills (doesn’t mention his co-writers) when he does “Southern Cross” in concert.
