Graham Nash revealed that the long-awaited 1974 Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young live album originally due out on August 27th has been delayed. Nash, who along with band archivist Joel Bernstein compiled the collection, explained the situation to ABC News, saying, "We were gonna bring it out in August, but next year is the 40th anniversary of the tour, and so I'm gonna wait for spring of next year. You gotta understand, our shows were three or four hours long and there are four of us and we were all writing like crazy. I just found a one-minute, 10-second song of Neil Young's about Richard Nixon that I can't leave off. It's brilliant. . . So, my point is, I'm still forming and shaping the album."
Although Graham Nash has one foot planted in the past in regards to the group's vault releases, he's also on top of the monumental changes that have taken place in the music business over the past decade: "There's not a lot of money being made in the recording business right now. But it still costs a fortune to record, right? So, how do you balance that? I think that most bands now are making their money (in) live recordings, live concerts, and selling their product at the merchandising stand. It's all really, really changed in the last 10 years."
Crosby, Stills, & Nash perform tomorrow night (May 3rd) with Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra at Lincoln Center's Rose Theatre, at the event dubbed, The Crosby, Stills & Nash Songbook.
