    The word “essential” is bandied about quite a bit these days in reference to landmark recordings. Yet, here it applies in every sense. CSNY 74 is one for the ages.

    CSNY 1974 may be the closest we'll come to hearing a mid-Seventies reunion album from this band.

    Forty years on, these are still songs and performances few have equaled, let alone bettered. [Sep 2014, p.99]

    Nash and long-time CSNY associate Joel Bernstein have produced the set with reportorial faithfulness, arranging the songs to mirror a typical marathon night and leaving the scars intact.... You also hear the group's genuine power and competitive fury at its height as the four rotate the spotlight through their individual songbooks. [Aug 2014, p.103]

    Four decades on, the enduring tales of ego clashes and drug-fuelled disarray have overshadowed the shows themselves, yet this painstakingly compiled set comes as something of a revelation.
  6. 80
    The determination to include generous dollops of each member’s solo output means that the acoustic set sags badly. But the obscure material is welcome.
  7. 70
    CSNY 1974 does an unerring job at capturing a must-capture moment in music history, it’s just the moment acquits itself as more a valiant effort than a resounding success.
