Long May You Run: all. things. running. by Chris Cooper
Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young - Long May You Run ( Sub - Espanol )
When Neil Young and Stephen Stills Paired Off for ‘Long May You Run’
It peaked at 26 on the Billboard and certified gold in the U. The album is the sole studio release by Stills and Young in tandem. In early , Stills and Young reached a rapprochement, and began to work on a joint album project from a desire by both to pick up where they left off with their Buffalo Springfield -era guitar explorations, a decade after the inception of the band. However, on a deadline Nash and Crosby left Miami to finish the sessions for what would become their album Whistling Down the Wire , and Young and Stills reacted by removing the duo's vocals and other contributions from the master tapes. The Stills—Young Band, comprising Stills' then-current touring band behind the pair, began a tour in prior to the album's release. The tour commenced in Clarkston, Michigan on June 23, but after nine dates Young dropped out after July 18 via a telegram to Stills, forcing Stills to complete the concert tour solo through October.
It is credited to "The Stills-Young Band," which is to say, Stephen Stills and his band with Young added, and the two divide up the songwriting and lead vocals, five for Young , four for Stills. The pairing, though it proved short-lived and had, in fact, ended before this album was released, must have seemed commercially logical. So had erstwhile partners David Crosby and Graham Nash , but they had returned to Top Ten, gold-selling status in the fall of with their Wind on the Water duo album. Why couldn't Stills and Young do the same thing? Maybe they could have and, actually, this was the first gold album for either in two years if they had made a better record together.
