CROSBY, STILLS, NASH & YOUNG - 4 Way Street @320


Four Way Street is the third album by Crosby, Stills & Nash, their second as Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, released in 1971, shipping as a gold record and peaking at #1 on the Billboard Top Pop Albums chart. A document of their tour from the previous year, the live recordings presented were taken from shows at The Fillmore East, New York, June 2–June 7, 1970 The Chicago Auditorium, Chicago, July 5, 1970 and The Forum, Los Angeles, June 26–June 28, 1970.
The album contained material previously available in studio versions, from both the various affiliations and individual work of the four principals. Two songs each by Nash and Crosby had not been officially released by its writer at the time of the arrival of this album in the shops: "Chicago," soon to appear one month later on Nash's Songs for Beginners album, and "Right Between the Eyes;" "The Lee Shore" by Crosby, as well as his controversial ménage à trois "Triad" composition, recorded by Jefferson Airplane on their Crown of Creation album of 1968, and by The Byrds, but not released until 1997 as a bonus track on The Notorious Byrd Brothers reissue.
At the time this album was recorded, inner tensions were rife between the members (their dressing-room fights immediately becoming the stuff of rock legend, even being referenced by Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention in their 1971 LP Fillmore East - June 1971), and eventually caused CSNY to dissolve shortly after the recording of Four Way Street (and many months before its release); it is interesting to observe that the level of beauty evinced by this recording was born in the midst of such strife
