New Set of 1969 Live Performances by Crosby Stills Nash & Young to Be Released

Recorded at New York’s Fillmore East in 1969

Neil Young’s official website reports that an album of live performances by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young recorded at New York’s Fillmore East in 1969 is in the works.

At the time of the concerts that September, the group had only played a dozen or so times, including their famous performance just over a month earlier at the Woodstock festival. Young noted that the set was “full of great songs and then-unknown gems.” He added: “Staggering harmonies.” His April 2, 2024, post didn’t offer a timetable for the release, though he emphasized it will be a double album, adding, “Pure. Analog. No digital.”

CSNY played four concerts—two per night—on September 19-20, 1969. As Young noted, “I was new in the band, having been brought in by Stephen Stills, my Buffalo Springfield bandmate. We didn’t know much material to sing together yet. They had the historic CSN album with tracks created largely by Stills, full of great songs and singing by all members. When we took the stage, CSN would play their favorites along with some brand new songs that would later [become] classics. Some, like ‘Our House,’ were so new that only the writer-singer would perform them.”

As the Best Classic Bands site notes, less than a year later, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young returned to the Fillmore from June 2-7, 1970. Many of the performances at those shows were released on the band’s 1971 double live album, 4 Way Street.
