Crosby, Stills & NashThe DVD Collection (Rhino)
Without Neil Young, CSN's value boiled down to hoary old singer-songwriters, yet this 3-DVD set reminds us they were the premier vocal group of their day. 1991's The Acoustic Concert and '83's Daylight Again, were previously available, but not the retrospective disc, Long Time Coming. Crosby comes off like a stoner putz, Stills is musically elegant, Nash is charmingly eloquent, and repetition is rampant. Long Time Coming, with its archival footage and Neil Young cameos, almost makes the set worth it.
