Thank you Thrasher!

Any Stills is better than NO Stills.

His love for his old friend is evident with this song, and his 1976 version of "The Loner".

People hate on Stills even more than Crosby and Nash and for what?

... The whammy-bar solo and the feedback-propelled ending are proof that his other great friend JIMI HENDRIX is stills near and dear to Stephen's heart and soul.

God bless him. The man is a SURVIVOR

Vive le Stills !!!

Crosby and Nash are soliciting Neil online to come play with them and Stills is doing Neil Young cover songs. Oh, and Nash's feelings are still hurt. All is right with the world here in 2013.

I own every record Stills made, but the fact is that his voice deteriorated after 1974. Even on Manassas he doesn't sing as good as on the CSN debut.

Whiskey, wrong technique (like on Black Queen), coke, overscreaming his vocal cords, smoking and alcohol addiction have completely shot his voice. Listen to a song like Hearts Gate; Stills' voice is absolutely terrible.

I don't care about his ego or his temper, but most people hate him for those causes. If you are as good as Stills in his prime, have all the ego you want. Up until Stills Live he was tremendous. But the fact is he ruined his own career.

Furthermore, I really don't like the electric effects on his acoustic guitars. What's wrong with the sound of Singin' Call? And I don't like his style of playing guitar nowadays. Too much of Neil Young, little of Stills himself.

Maybe people should listen to the
new album by the Rides (Stills
Kenny Wayne Shepard and Barry Goldberg (electric flag) before
criticizing tills. This is a pretty damm good record. yes, Stephen's voice isn't what it used to be be but the man can still play mean guitar and his bluesy solos on free world are something that Neil would be unable to play.

I think a CSNY tour in 2014 to go along with the box set would be great. And if you've seen Crosby and Nash lately they sound better than ever.

This is sad so sad for so many reasons. they should promise never to play RUTFW again...

The album is good and it is excellently recorded on 2 two inch tape/mastered. The Stills vocals on RITFW are also weak on the studio version, but sometimes this song is vocally a difficult match for Neil himself.
Can Get Enough debuted at the 42nd position on BB. Not so bad for Stills and a new group.

So Tired.
