Overview

This two-CD set, issued for the European and Australian markets, has proved among the most popular of Crosby, Stills & Nash's imports since its release in 1998. Not as hefty, physically or monetarily, as the 1991 four-CD box, it limits itself to the group's hits and popular and important LP cuts -- many represented by outtake versions and alternate mixes -- interspersed with popular tracks from the work of Stephen Stills, Graham Nash, and David Crosby (solo and partnered together), and adds what is mostly the best of the previously unissued Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young material from the box. It's a good survey of the trio's best moments and the three members' most effective solo outings, and presents their most appealing side -- one assumes that a future Graham Nash compilation will include room for tracks like "I Used to Be a King" or "Military Madness" and that Crosby's best stuff off of his first solo album will be compiled that way as well. The inclusion of Crosby's 1968 version of "Guinevere," the early alternate mix of "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes," and a handful of additional outtakes that surfaced on the box are the places where the set departs from a standard best-of, but that departure is justified and welcome, separating this set from the So Far album, and anyone who didn't spring for the four-CD set will be delighted. There are no notes, but none are needed either, and the only drawback for some will be the fact that the stuff isn't presented in remotely chronological order.

Carry On 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
glauver More than 1 year ago
This 2 CD import is a bit pricey but still cheaper than the four CD domestic box. I bought this set a few years ago and am pleased. The bulk of the songs are from their 1969-77 heyday. Thirteen of the songs are from CSNY sessions and some are duo and solo tracks. Some of the out-takes are interesting and none are a jarring departure from the more familiar versions. Neil Young sings lead on Ohio and Helpless even though he is not on the cover. I note that the tracks from 1990's Live it Up show a real decline and cause me to drop my rating a star. On two of them the trio don't even play instruments, a surprising situation for a group that played almost everything at the beginning. I would like to see an expanded version of Deja Vu with bonus material but, until then, this will have to suffice.
