Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young are releasing a live album from their 1974 reunion tour. The as yet untitled album is expected to be released on August 27.
Graham Nash told Rolling Stone:
“It’s going to f—in’ stun people. We only multi-tracked eight or nine shows from the tour, and we’ve chosen the best from those gigs. We’ve had to do a little tuning, but not that much…But the spirit of the band! If I take myself out the band and look at it, it was a f—in’ great band.”
