Rhino will on Oct. 26 release a three-DVD set spotlighting the on- and off-stage activities of Crosby, Stills & Nash. In addition to the recently released concert DVDs “Acoustic” and “Daylight Again,” the set includes the DVD debut of the 1990 documentary “Long Time Comin’,” featuring interviews, TV performances and live clips.
“Acoustic” was taped at San Francisco’s Warfield Theater in 1991 and boasts 16 performances, including “Deja Vu,” “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes,” “Our House,” “Teach Your Children” and Buffalo Springfield’s “For What It’s Worth.”
Recorded in 1983 at Los Angeles’ Universal Amphitheatre, “Daylight Again” finds CSN touring in support of the album of the same name, released that year. Although David Crosby’s substance abuse problems are apparent in his physical appearance and demeanor, the trio still pulls together strong performances of such tracks as “Wasted on the Way” and “Southern Cross.”
“Long Time Comin'” presents a narration-free look into the band’s history, including 11 full song performances and snippets of nine others. Among the highlights are an acoustic version of “Marrakesh Express” from the 1969 Woodstock festival and several live tracks from the group’s 1977 tour, such as “Dark Star” and “Wooden Ships.”
Clips of CSN members playing in other bands are also featured, including Crosby with the Byrds on “Hollywood A-Go-Go” in 1966, plus separate clips of Nash with the Hollies and Stills with Buffalo Springfield on “The Smothers Brothers Show” in 1967.
CSN will wrap a run of tour dates with performances tomorrow (Sept. 21) in Bend, Ore., Wednesday in Woodlinville, Wash., and Sept. 29 as part of the Vote for Change tour in Phoenix.
