CSNY box set confirmed

The fabled Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young live box set CSNY 1974 has finally been officially confirmed for release on July 7.

The title appeared on Amazon earlier this month, but Rhino Records kept details to a minimum. Now they’ve confirmed the set will include a DVD of previously unseen concert footage shot during the band’s US tour 40 years ago this year. It’s to be accompanied by a 188-page booklet containing exclusive photos. And a limited-edition version will be presented in a wooden box.

Rhino say: “CSNY 1974 captures the band’s one-of-a-kind harmonic alchemy during its remarkable outdoor stadium tour – a trek that spanned more than two months and included 31 concerts in 24 cities, with combined audiences of over a million people.

“Produced by Graham Nash and Joel Bernstein, the box set mirrors the electric-acoustic-electric format the band followed each night on stage, representing an idealised version of a show from the tour.”
