rickythepenguin: notmtwain: // Lighten up Neil.yeah, not even really being a CSNY/ Neil fan, his stance on how bad CDs are or audio in general, it's like, dude, is it better that the product get into circulation during your lifetime (or your fans'), or is it better to cross your arms, harrumph and grumble about how bad CD quality audio is and sit on the vault? "NO! YOU CAN'T HAVE THIS! IT SOUNDS AWFUL TO MY EARS! HARRUMPH!"
rickythepenguin: Huh.....Stephen Stills is in both of my favorite music magazines right now.....seems like a cool guy.
rickythepenguin: rickythepenguin: Huh.....Stephen Stills is in both of my favorite music magazines right now.....seems like a cool guy.there's a cool story about the first time they sang together.....apparently Nash and Crosby say it was at a party at Joni's house but Stills in the article, is like, "they've convinced themselves of this alternate reality, but here's how it really went down." (almost an exact quote, by the way).he says that he idolized Joni so very badly that there is no way he would have sang in front of her first with this band. he and Cros had farked around on some songs, and then I think Judy Collins -- shiat -- it might have been Mama Cass, asked Stills if he wanted a third singer. Stils is like, "yeah, i'll try anything." he goes to a party at this person's house, whether Collins or Cass, and Graham Freaking Nash is there. Stills in the article is like, "we all knew who he was, and I was freaking out."so then he and cros go to the kitchen and start a duet they'd just written. Nash is upstairs watching them, pacing back and forth. Nash is like, "do it again." they do it. Nash again says, "ok, try it one more time". they do it. He then comes down, they sing that song, and when Nash chimes in, Stills is quoted in the article saying something like, "at that moment, I knew my life would never, ever be the same." and then he says a couple days later, they performed at Joni's house. but his point is the first time they sang, it wasn't at Joni's./the new issues of UNCUT and Mojo, if you're scoring at home. really cool articles.

(almost an exact quote, by the way).(cool story deleted)That's pretty much how it's described in "Go Where You Wanna Go," the Matthew Greenwald book on the Mamas and Papas, as related by Mama Cass.Still also tells how he spotted Young's hearse in traffic while driving around LA with Richie Furay, and they chased him down to see if he wanted to play a couple gigs with Buffalo Springfield.They've certainly had their feuds over the years, but Stills' health problems seems to have convinced him that life is too short. This interview with the pair on a park bench (part 1 of 3) is way cool for the vibe.Stills is also a vastly underrated flat-pick guitarist - here he's giving a few tips to some guy:[www.dpsinsider.com image 469x326]
TXEric: tune it E-E-E-E-B-E
karnal: I have 4 Way Steet - what else do I need?
tillerman35: Remember when we used to go to concerts to hear people play their music? That was weird, right? I mean, like where were all the dancers? Why didn't they have people bouncing around on bungie cords? Why do we have to listen to them actually sing? Wouldn't it just be simpler for them to mouth the words while someone plays their hit songs? Why are they on the stage at all? That doesn't make sense- they should just be holograms. Dancing holograms that lip sync to popular tunes. That's all we really need at concerts.
downstairs: karnal: I have 4 Way Steet - what else do I need?4 Way Street is much better/I keeeed ;)//Yes, its an awesome live album
whidbey: Wow, 4 unreleased recordings of CSNY fighting in the dressing room at the Fillmore East...[upload.wikimedia.org image 311x300]/very agile, howie//very agile
rickythepenguin: TXEric: tune it E-E-E-E-B-Eno shiat? wow. i didn't know, one, it was in an alt tunign and second, I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF EEEEBE tuning!another thing that strikes me as funny about Judy Blue Eyes is in that "delicate" outro, iwth the series of upper register notes just before the "do doo doo doo doo" coda, is, there is a phrase that is spot-on the signature likc in the grateful dead's china cat sunflower, where Jerry plays that same exact phrase to announce the transition into I Know You Rider.i wonder if Still stole that from the GD or vice versa.
TXEric: Could have been either way - they both tunes were released around the same time.
TXEric: Loves me some crazy tunings.
orange whip: leaving before my Fillmore runs out of gas
TV's Vinnie: It is my personal opinion that all "Live" albums recorded in the 70's SUCK. Without the benefits of a mixer and other tweaks, you got to hear them as they really are. And boy, the ear-grating noises they make.
rickythepenguin: TXEric: Could have been either way - they both tunes were released around the same time.and they were buddies....Garcia of course played on "Tech Your Children Well" (that lap steel solo is a first take) and I'm hazy on the details, but.....before the GD did I think American Beauty, CSN (perhaps Stills alone, who was known to jam with the GD) traded, as I recall, vocal / harmony lessons for the Dead in exchange for either studio time or Jerry's production of CSN.American Beauty has some pretty amazing vocal harmonies that the GD had never really shown on record, and as I recall, that came from the "you scratch my back I'll scratch yours" arrangement./might have been Workingman's Dead. either way, there's a story about someone teaching the GD the basics of harmony singing.
