(To win a free print, see contest details below)

In celebration of the upcoming 50th anniversary of the filming of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young on The Music Scene TV program on Sept. 22, 1969, photographer Jeff Allen | InstaGram has generously offered up a free photo print to a Thrasher's Wheat reader. (See below for details.)

Jeff wrote us about discovering his lost negatives back in 2009:
I have over 90 shots in b&w from the taping.

I was 19 years old when I was invited to the taping. I can't remember who invited me, but I went with my trusty Nikon F with a 105mm portrait lens. I was so close, I couldn't even get all four band members in the same shot, but got a few with three.

I shot the black and whites and also a bunch of Ektachrome slides (which I subsequently lost in the many moves from rental properties over the years) while sitting in the front row of the audience. I was the guy in the long sleeve yellow shirt, second from the left in the opening scene.

You can see Jeff at the taping in the video below of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young performing "Down by the River".

A photo of Neil Young by Jeff was used on the cover of the book Everything Left to Know About the Iconic and Mercurial Rocker by Glen Boyd (Review and details).

And here is a very rare image of the late band manager Elliot Roberts (1943 - 2019) at the taping with Stephen Stills.

Jeff Allen is an incredible photographer and more importantly he is an incredibly kind and generous individual. I entered the Crosby Stills Nash and Young contest. I did not win. But in a way I did. Jeff was altruistic and sent me a beautiful photo of Neil Young from 1969. Jeff signed it and sent it without me asking. He knew I really liked his work and this photograph. It was totally unexpected as we don't know each other personally. It was simply a generous and kind thing to do. I am very touched and I will keep the photo next to my desk to enjoy both the picture and the thought behind it. I wanted to give kudos to Jeff! THANK YOU!

Hi Jeff!

I apologize for the delay in my reply. My parents are in the process of packing up & moving & so everything is a bit chaotic down there. But, my dad did receive the Neil Young photo you sent & he's so ecstatic!! Said it was the coolest thing ever. And, of course, that makes me so happy to see him so happy! Thank you again so much!!
