It’s was as simple as 4 3 2 1

On April 7, 1971, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young released the LP “4 Way Street”. It had the number 4 in the title, it was album number 3 by Crosby, Stills & Nash, LP # 2 as Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, and their first live album. It was shipped as a gold record and peaking at #1 on the Billboard 200.

It was a document of their tour from the previous year, the live recordings presented were taken from shows at The Fillmore East, New York on June 2 through June 7, 1970; The Forum, Los Angeles on June 26 through June 28, 1970; and The Chicago Auditorium, Chicago, on July 5, 1970.

At the time this album was recorded, tensions between the band members were high, with their dressing-room fights becoming the stuff of rock legend, even being referenced by Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention in their 1971 LP Fillmore East – June 1971. The tensions led to CSNY dissolving shortly after the recording of 4 Way Street.

They would reunite for a stadium tour in the summer of 1974 and the next release of new studio material by them would not be until the CSN album of 1977.

It was / is a great live record. How many of you still listen to the album?

Happy 47th Birthday to “4 Way Street”!!!
