I was fortunate enough to see CSN with Donny (Neil Young) at their 2002 show in San Jose, from 14th row floor seats, which was also one of the best concert experiences I've had. Their backing band included Booker T Jones and the late Donald "Duck" Dunn. Here's a link to more photos and comments on the Huntsville show: http://www.crosbystillsnash.com/AL.com

Sounds like you like harmony, Max. Check out Fleet Foxes: "Helplessness Blues" and "White Winter Hymnal" are good tracks to start out on. They look even more hippy today than CSN did back in the day.

Maybe Gina, with her vast knowledge of music, was thinking of the much older recording by Matthew's Southern Comfort (not that it sounds that different from the Eagles' version).

Hi, You cant keep them to yourselves. When they coming over here to the UK. It's good to be in the generation that experienced proper music. I just despair at modern music. Every time I hear something new I look at my wife and we both say "that sounds like ...".I reckon its all been done!

Hi, Max. I agree with you, this Eagle´s song reminds CSN&Y harmonies. This recording is a bonus DTS audio only track from the DVD "Hell Freezes Over". This particular track is amazing: each voice comes from one speaker in a 5.1 system.

The one I really loved is "I'm not in love" which came out in the summer of 1975 when I'd just graduated high school -- I wend on a week's camping holiday with my best friend (Mark) and my cousin Gillian and her friend Jill -- it was a GREAT summer...

Sadly their voices are not quite what they once were -- but it was still an experience I would not have missed for anything

10CC...I like them too. Dare I admit I have karaokied The Things We Do for Love? ;) You have good taste, Max. Seven Bridges Road...I wish they would bring back good harmonies like that. It reminds me of a similar song and one which should be popular to those living in Alabama, Dixieland Delight by the group Alabama. How about Woke Up in Love by Exile, or Elvira by the Oakrige Boys--lots of great harmonization from the 70's and 80's, and at one point it seemed like country-pop might take over pop music, but then at one time it seemed like disco might take over as well... Regarding that album cover, I think it looks like Donny too. By the way, if you are musically challenged, a good mnemonic might be to listen to the song Life Is a Rock but the Radio Rolled Me by Reunion. It compiles a great list of musical groups into a song in a breathtaking 3 and a half minutes.

Max, I agree with you that it could easily have been CSN&Y, but there is a bass/baritone voice in the Eagles song that never seems to be in any CSN&Y music. From my experience of CSN&Y recorded live stuff (Woodstock and Four Way Street), it seems to me that they have trouble maintaining the harmonies. This has coloured my opinion, even though I am a fan, and as a result I have avoided going to their concerts when they have appeared in Toronto. From your description, it seems I have missed out. The Eagles cut sounds to be live as well, but doesn't seem to suffer from missed harmonies.

When I was in Zim I used to buy New Musical Express occasionally and drool over all the acts that were playing in UK. Now I'm in Aussie and we do occasionally get big acts in Sydney - but they cost an arm and a leg to see and it's a 4-hour journey each way plus an overnight, so I haven't bothered. A friend of mine from schooldays DID go see The Who in Brisbane not long ago and ended up with permanent Tinnitus as a result....
