VIDEO OF THE WEEK: Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young - Down By The River (live at Big Sur Folk Festival, 1969)

I started listening to the 4 disc Crosby, Stills & Nash box set yesterday and forgot how much I love them. If you've not heard the box set before, it basiscally contains some of the greatest music ever made and includes a mixture of solo work from the 3 of them and group recordings both with and without Neil Young. After listening to it again this morning, I decided to watch a few of my favourite videos of the guys on You Tube and came across one of my all-time favourites, 'Down By The River', live at Big Sur, California, September 14, 1969. The performance was part of the 'Celebration at Big Sur', a film of the 1969 Big Sur Folk Festival and is up on You Tube for those interested. The festival was held yearly from 1964 to 1971. You really can't beat seeing these four brilliant musicians playing live together...there's so much energy and they look they're having a great time. it is!
