Stephen Stills live CD/DVD on the way


Stephen Stills has influenced generations with his powerful voice, songwriting artistry, and passionate guitar playing, both as a solo artist and as a member of Buffalo Springfield, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, and Manassas.

After recording his second solo album, Stills formed Manassas in 1971 with a talented group of musicians that included Chris Hillman, a former member of the Byrds and The Flying Burrito Brothers. Manassas released two albums, 1972’s eponymous double-album debut and the 1973 follow-up, Down The Road. MANASSAS - PIECES features alternate versions of two songs from Down The Road: “Do You Remember The Americans” and “Lies” (featuring guitarist Joe Walsh). The collection also includes the group’s unreleased performances of “Sugar Babe” and “Word Game,” a pair of songs Stills recorded in 1971 for his second solo album.



Last summer, Stills played a career-spanning concert at Shepherds Bush that was captured for LIVE AT SHEPHERD’S BUSH, a CD/DVD set. Playing both solo-acoustic and full band sets, Stills touched on nearly every facet of his prolific career: Buffalo Springfield (“Bluebird”, “For What It’s Worth” “Rock & Roll Woman”); CSN (“Suite: Judy Blue Eyes” “Helplessly Hoping” “Southern Cross”); CSNY (“Woodstock” “Carry On”); early solo (“Love The One You’re With” “Marianne”); Manassas (“So Begins The Task,” “Isn’t It About Time”); Stills/Young (“Long May You Run”); and later solo (“Treetop Flyer”, “Wounded World”). Other highlights include covers of Bob Dylan’s “Girl From The North Country” and Tom Petty’s “The Wrong Thing To Do”.
