early report by Tim Motion Pictures Dapp
Washington, DC, April 6, 2000
Just got back from the show at the MCI Center and it was simply
incredible. I was sorry to miss the pre-show gathering. But the show, as I'm
sure anyone there would attest to, was amazing.
Having heard 4 Way Street and the '74 compilation, I would say
the big difference now is that CSNY are a BAND. Sure, there was
a false start to 49 Bye-Byes, and Neil stumbled a little during Out
of Control... But the show was an explosion of energy, and the crowd was
really into it. For all of the sets, including the acoustic, the sound at
MCI was superb (this was even mentioned by Neil and Stills).
To me, Stills has strengthened as the tour has gone on. Crosby and Nash sounded
perfect. And Neil was ferocious. (By the way, his voice sounded fine, also...)
All the guys are in their mid to late 50's and they have just peaked as a
"supergroup." If any other show was better than this, I wouldn't believe it.
Perfection doesn't happen very often.
- Southern Man -- A perfect 6 minute version.
- Almost Cut My Hair -- Incredible duel between Stills and Neil.
Crosby was perfection.
- Old Man -- I was surprised how good the harmonies were. Out Of
Control also surprised me in a similar fashion, I am one of the few who
like the full band effect. Stills matched Neil's harmonica note for note.
- Suite: Judy Blue Eyes -- Stills came alive. Huge ovation after his
incredible solo. I preferred Stills acoustic virtuosity rather than his heavy
metal guitar playing (which I do also love and respect).
- Guinnivere -- I liked how the audience reacted to the song, cheering
at all the right moments, which must have pleased C&N, because their
voices soared accordingly.
- Dream for Him -- Crosby prefaced the song by mentioning that no one
should be offended in DC that some of the subject matter in the song depicted
DC in an unflattering (but accurate) portrait. Crosby then sang his heart out.
- Woodstock -- I've never heard this song sound so good. Best version
- DBTR -- My dream song, and CSNY did not disappoint. About 18
minutes long, the interaction between Neil and Stills was mind altering,
especially between the 1st and 2nd verses.
