Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young to release 1974 live album "in August"

Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young are planning to release their long-awaited live album from their 1974 tour "in August", according to Graham Nash.

Speaking to Rolling Stone, Nash said, "It's going to come out August 27th. It's going to fuckin' stun people. We only multi-tracked eight or nine shows from the tour, and we've chosen the best from those gigs. We've had to do a little tuning, but not that much . . . But the spirit of the band! If I take myself out the band and look at it, it was a fuckin' great band."

The band have yet to agree on a title for the album, although according to David Crosby, "I want to call it What Could Possibly Go Wrong?."

"I'm going to dig my heels and seriously fight for that," Crosby told Rolling Stone. "You can't hear that without laughing your head off. It's important to look at yourselves with a sense of humor in retrospect and realize what gigantic egos we had and what idiots we were. But I think it's a great title. If I don't get it, I'll threaten to quit the band – at which point I'll be reminded that there's no band to quit!"

Crosby recently Tweeted about the album, claiming the mixes he'd heard were "unbelievable".

The album is believed to have been mixed by Graham Nash and Stanley Johnston and Joel Bernstein.

Robert Wyatt interviewed: "I'm not a born rebel..."

Today (January 28, 2015), social media reliably informs me that Robert Wyatt is 70, which seems a reasonable justification for reposting this long and, I hope, interesting transcript of an interview I did with him at home in Louth back in 2007, a little before the marvellous “Comicopera” was...
