If you want a taste of this set without buying the boxed set go to Starbucks for a single disc for $12.95. They have been out for about a week; might be a few left. The cd includes a coupon for a free digital download.

Hey Val ..... That's good to know. But if you can afford the extra forty bucks (the
price of a halfway decent bottle of wine), buy the full set. All the music is terrific
and there's not one song I would want to be without. And if you get it from
Amazon (no affiliation) you also get the entire 3 CD set as a download.
Hi Fjn04 ... Here's a link to the vinyl. Mucho $$$$.
And by the way, when I bought the CD set from Amazon last week, it was $54.98. Last night, I saw it on their site for $39.88, so I called them, and they quickly refunded the difference. Nice folks at Amazon ....
And yes, Fjn, lots of great shows in the Albany area. And my compliments to you on a beautiful system. Shindo and DeVore ... perfect together !
I bought the CD box set on the day of release and highly recommend the music. I also checked out the vinyl package and figured that was was to many fun tickets for what was offered. I wouldn't place blame on any one person for the cost of the LP's. CSN&Y is 4 people with equal economic interest. After reading about putting the package together I can only imagine the negotiations concerning retail. In this case I'll happily enjoy my digital edition.
I remember this '74 tour with ticket prices over $70!!!! This was double all other concerts at the time. The accusations of GREED and sell outs flew, but it was the greatest music of the time. Now the cd is released at less than the cost of the concert, very fair, and the vinyl is similar to other recent box sets, Greed or just the marketplace? If you can afford the vinyl buy it, if you can only afford the cd, buy it, this is maybe the height of '70's music. Very excited to get mine!
Got it. listened to it. Boy has live recording technology improved...If you've got 4 way street, I'd say the $$. Stills and Crosby voices are shot, harmonies way off, sound muffled, esp. lead guitars. I'm a big fan but imo, this is not a keeper. Anyone want to make me an offer? After that sales pitch, I'll probably have to beat them off w a stick!
