Issued on Rhino Records init consists of concert material recorded in on the band's tour during the summer of that year. It was issued in several formats: a standard compact disc box set consisting of three audio discs and a standard DVD ; as one pure audio Blu-ray disc and a Blu-ray DVD; and a more expensively packaged limited deluxe edition consisting of Stills material on six vinyl records along with the Blu-ray discs and a coffee table book.
Two single disc samplers were also issued, one of the acoustic material exclusively available at Starbucks in the United States and Canada, and another at normal retail outlets. Each of the non-sampler sets also contained a page booklet, and all formats were released the same day. The three-disc and DVD package peaked at 17 on the Billboardwhile the Starbucks sampler peaked at 37 and the selections sampler at All were gold recordsas were the three issued in early by the quartet: Harvest ; Graham Nash David Crosby ; and Manassas ; proving the group to be appealing commercially apart as well as together.
Young toured solo in late and Silver (Piano, Violin, Synthesized Sounds, Harp) - Arden Wilken - Inner SunStills undertook his first solo headlining tour with a new band in the summer ofabout the same time that Crosby and Nash toured 'unplugged'for the first time as a duo. Intheir individual fortunes began to falter. Stills toured again with Manassas, but their second album did not do as well in the marketplace.
Young undertook two tours colored by the death of Crazy Horse guitarist Danny Whitten ; the album from the first tour with Crosby and Nash & Young - CSNY 1974 (Blu-ray) on a couple of tracks Time Fades Away falling well short of the previous year's Harvest sales-wise. Crosby's reunion with the Byrds and Nash's Nash & Young - CSNY 1974 (Blu-ray) solo album also did not do very well critically or commercially.
Crosby and Nash put together their first electric band tour in lateand Stills continued to tour with Manassas late intobut the seed had been planted. Manager Roberts proposed to CSNY something more ambitious: a summer tour of baseball and football stadiums. Besides the four principals on guitars and keyboards, supporting musicians had previously worked with different members.
Cass Elliot died in London during the tour on July Nash relayed the news to Kunkel, who was married to her sister Leah. Kunkel said, "She had a big role in their lives. She introduced Graham to Stephen. It was a very difficult day for us when she died. The show that night is probably what got us all through it. Although large multiple-bill festivals such as Miami PopWoodstockand Watkins Glen had taken place, and CSNY, the Rolling Stonesand others had played infrequent stadium shows, no band except Stills the Beatles had ever attempted a tour of this magnitude.
Paul Civic Center. Nash and Joel Bernsteinwho had assembled the three individual box sets VoyageReflectionsand Carry On for Nash & Young - CSNY 1974 (Blu-ray), Nash, and Stills respectively, collaborated again to produce this set. Nash stated that he became the group's archivist both because of his interest in preserving their history  and because "I just think I'm the Nicki - Various - Off The Wall one with the patience for it.
Nash and Bernstein selected the best take for each song from the dozen or so performances available. Nash claimed there were absolutely no overdubs: "If something was out of tune, I would either tune or I'd find it from another show — I'd find something at roughly the same tempo and I'd put it on. Fortunately, Stills was not upset. While the set list consisted of material taken from both group and solo projects, many songs performed on the tour and included in this box Stills had not been issued before the tour.
CSN's cover of " Blackbird " had Nash & Young - CSNY 1974 (Blu-ray) recorded in the studio in earlybut would not be issued until the box set.
The box set presents an idealized concert from the template of the shows themselves: discs one and three full-band electric sets flanking a middle second set of acoustic songs in solo, duo, trio, and quartet configurations.
The page booklet contains photographs, an essay, quotes, and song information compiled by Bernstein, including which model instruments were used on each song. Crosby dubbed this "the Doom Tour," in reference to both the difficulties in playing such large venues and the collateral excesses.
Nash found this absurd; nevertheless the album topped the Billboardand its cover drawing by Joni Mitchell would indulgently appear on everything from dinner plates to pillowcases as part of the group's travel accessories. The first stadium tour, CSNY in set the precedent for every similar outing to follow.
As lucrative stadium tours with their large attendances became more feasible during the s, so documents of the tour such as Frampton Comes Alive! The promotion business of rock and popular music has not looked back since. In the autumn after the tour, another attempt to record a new CSNY studio album in Sausalito came to naught.
