Morrissey And CSNY: I'll Get To Them!!!

1974

1974

How busy was this week? six concerts in eight days, plus five days of work, plus rock nyc and always struggling till the last minute to complete the following days posts. And walking round like a zombie from lack of sleep (actually, that’s not all so new) and the result is two albums I’ve been wanting to write about, CSNY 1974 and World Peace Is none Of Your Business -the former from Itunes, the latter streaming on NPR, and I just haven’t had the time or energy to put together my thoughts on em.

But what the hell, right? Here is at list a feel for em. Morrissey is all over the place with maybe wo great songs and two ok songs, and consistent playing all the way through. CSNY 1974 is much betterthan it has any right to be, a strikingly good snap shot of the band in disarray. Stories of sex, drugs, rock and roll and rampant egotism by what was the greatest rock and roll band in the world right that second on one hand, and stories of ilness and the flu on the other.

The Moz has some lovely moments, I think, it is a little hard to settle into it, it needs concentration and the CSNY took Graham Nash used to cut and paste from a whole tours worth of music, someimes changing a single line from one version to another. CSNY 74 has everything you thought it would and plenty I for one (admittedly, not a huge fan) have no idea about, including “Goodbye Dick”, Neil Young sticking in the knife to one former President Nixon.

Like all live albums, you wish they’d cut down the audience applause or just steal off Steve Reich or something, but what can you do, right?

Anyway, once the dust settles I will be sure to write in more depth but on first listen?

World Peace Is None Of Your Business – Morrissey – B

CSNY 1974 – B+
