A rather most awesome Photo of the Moment of Stephen Stills getting air with CSNY in 1974.

From the Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young concert at Wembley Stadium, London,England, 1974-09-14.

Back 2010, we reported that a box set of CSNY's 1974 tour was in the works.

The news set off quite a reaction with numerous comments on memories from CSNY's 1974 tour. In many ways, the tour marked the end of an era as well as the beginning of a new era. Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young's 1974 summer tour was unprecedented in many ways -- not the least of which was a pioneering mega huge sound system able to blast tens of thousands at outdoor stadiums. The Bill Graham produced spectacle went on to usher in the massive rock and roll extravaganzas that so many other acts would later follow.

Alas, a hoped for 2011 release was never seen.

From a 2010 article in
[Graham Nash] hopes to put the finishing touches on a Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young live album from the quartet's legendary 1974 tour for a hoped-for spring 2011 release. Nash and archivist Joel Bernstein are putting the set together from multi-track recordings of nine concerts, and listening to them has shown Nash that 'we were really a fine band. It's very obvious when you play the tracks that we're listening to each other, not stepping on each other's toes, not overblowing. It's really, really good.'

Nash adds that Neil Young, himself an exacting archivist, has 'give me basically carte blanche' to put the set together. 'He knows me. He trusts me. He feels I can do this. He will be very involved, of course, because I'm not mixing anything finally until Neil's heard it and approves -- the same with David [Crosby] and Stephen.'

After the '74 show is done, Nash plans on to move to a 1970 CSNY show from the Fillmore East in New York city, as well as Crosby Nash shows from 1970 and 1993. He's also waiting for final permissions from some famous musical friends for a Crosby Nash collaborative album to benefit the Children's Defense Fund, which he hopes will come out in 2011 as well.

So will we ever hear these releases???

Is it okay to post bootlegs links on Thrasherswheat? I found an awesome stream of a 74 CSNY show last week.

CSNY material, studio and live, is locked in the vaults.In the past, Elliot Roberts opposed himself to his release. Now, with the ever impending release of the Archives, this could be again the matter.
Anyway, it's a pity that nothing, except Through My Sails, was released from the 1973, 1974 and 1976 sessions.
Now a 1974 Box Set Tour release should be ideal for the current market condtions.All the label aim to offer to the customers Deluxe Editions. Neil could support this release with a CSNY Tour, before it's too late for that.

So Tired.

Ughhh and that show looks so fucking good!

I don't know how they could possibly release the Wembley show when it is so bad. They sound worse at that show than they do now! Example:

There are tons of videos of the Wembley show, vocally it's atrocious, like they became tone deaf for the duration. That said, I've never really seen much else from that tour and I would kill to have a good boxset from that tour.

But Christ, Archives 2, Neil's new album(s), Buffalo Springfield reunion, his book, etc, etc. It would be nice to get some solid dates on any of those.

@Some guy - by the looks of the shows CSNY are selecting, you shouldn't have concerns.

For which famous guitar player did Neil Young wrote the song "Expecting to Fly"?

Roosvelt Stadium is an excellent soundboard, although I don't think that this concert is among the multitracks concerts selected by Nash and Bernsein. Personally I like this concert.

So Tired.

Wembley 1974 - Yes, I was there. I don't think that my memories were particularly vivid a few days after the gig. However, I can remember climbing over a fence to get onto the pitch, Stephen stills singing Blackbird, the stage seeming to be miles away and everyone was a little dot. Oh, and having a fight with my best friend because he had a one night stand the night before and he blamed me for it.

I'd like to say it was the drugs and drink but i was stone cold sober.
