Background: Released in April, 1971, 4 Way Street was the first live album by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. The album reached #1 on the U.S. charts and has sold more than 4 million copies.
But then came 4 Way Street, released in April of 1971: a live double-LP set, chock-full of superb music distilled down from a bunch of nights on that tour that more than fulfilled the promise of the group. Indeed, contained on those original four LP sides was the embodiment of everything great that the unique ethos behind this group — which was not a “group” but four individuals working together — might have yielded. Each of the participants got to show off a significant chunk of his best work, whether presented alone or in tandem with the others, and the shared repertory — “Long Time Gone,” “Ohio” etc. — binding it all together as more than a documentary of some joint appearances.
