Fabled CSNY box set coming soon

The long-awaited Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young live box set CSNY 1974 has appeared on Amazon without announcement – and it’s set for release on July 7.

Rhino Records have revealed the 48 songs that make up the collection, all of which were recorded during the band’s notorious 1974 US tour.

David Crosby last year told Rolling Stone: “If you’re listening you would think we were really, for a moment, the best band in the world.”

Despite their debauched behaviour on the road 40 years ago, he insisted: “The only reason the tour wasn’t great is because we were ripped off. It made, like, $12 million – and we each got less than half a million.”

He revealed that he was hoping to call the box set What Could Possibly Go Wrong?, arguing: “I think it’s hysterically funny. It shows we have a sense of humour about ourselves. If you know us, know the history, know the whole deal, it’s impossible to not crack up at that title.”

But he added: “I can think of at least one person where that won’t be a problem – and I can think of a couple of people where that might be a problem.”

CSNY 1974 is available for pre-order now.
