DELIGHTFUL 1991 ALL-ACOUSTIC SHOW IN TOKYO

 

After David Crosby was released from prison in 1986, having spent nine months incarcerated on a drugs charge, he reunited with Stephen Stills and Graham Nash for CSN tours in 1987 and 1988. The recording of the second CSNY studio album with Neil Young took place over the course of those years, but the quartet opted not to tour to promote it. The album was not well received, and Stills viewed it as "contrived”. In 1989, Stills and Young commenced tours with their own bands, while C&N began work on what was to be a new Crosby & Nash record. Crosby was also recording his second solo album Oh Yes I Can that same year. Stills regrouped with Crosby and Nash to perform at the collapse of the Berlin Wall in late 1989, and the sessions for the new Crosby & Nash album evolved into the new Crosby, Stills & Nash album instead. • Live It Up was released in June 1990 to positive reviews, and was the trio’s fourth studio record together, it peaked at No. 57 on the Billboard 200 with sales of about 500,000. During 1990 CSN performed eighty-or-so shows in North America to promote the record, but the following year, 1991, the trio went out on an all acoustic tour performing largely a ‘greatest hits’ package. • This jaunt included three shows in Japan, the finest of which, played at the Budokan Hall, in Tokyo, on Japan, 22nd April ’91, was transmitted on both FM Radio, and as a TV Special. The gig delighted the audience and is now available for all fans to hear on this new CD, which contains the entire concert performed on this special night, 30-years ago in the capital city of the ‘Land of the Rising Sun’
