Stephen Stills

The new disc, Live At Berkeley 1971 is out now.   I got it yesterday and it's on repeat.  I am biased I am sure, but I think he is one of the best singers, songwriters, musicians of my generation.  Plus he plays Sugar Babe on this disc, a favorite of mine, from SS2.



You mean, "Bluebird", recorded with B. Springfield?


The only time I caught him live was in ’74 at the Hollywood Bowl. My high school friends and I had nosebleed seats but Stills was on fire. I guess you could call him a "beast" in that regard. And "Manassas" is one of a very small handful of discs by C, S, N or Y that I still listen to, at this point.



OK. Got it. Had no idea they covered this -- when you said you were a "huge SS fan", I erroneously assumed you were specifically referring to his own compositions.  

Yeah; this is pretty good. Personally I find many performances from that '74 tour were degraded rather than enhanced by drug intake but I realize this is a minority opinion. 

This is my favorite version of his Tree-Top Flyer...
