Stephen Stills & David Crosby - Cowboys For Indians (2CD)


By early 1987, both Stephen Stills and David Crosby were in fallow periods of their respective - and collaborative - careers. Stills hadn't put out a solo record since 1984's Right By You and there hadn't been a CSN album in five years. Crosby had spent the majority of the previous year incarcerated following his arrest for drunken driving, a hit-and-run accident, and possession of a concealed pistol and drug paraphernalia. He hadn't put out a solo effort since 1971 or any new records with Graham Nash in more than a decade. But despite this CSN, in a myriad of formulations, or indeed solo, never stopped playing at benefit gigs and '87 was no exception. On 5th February 1987, Stephen Stills and David Crosby performed at the Cowboys For Indians Benefit, in Meadow Downs, Austin, TX as part of a show that also featured sets by Jerry Jeff Walker, Rambin' Jack Elliot and David Lindley. Stills and Crosby both performed dynamic solo sets and then collaborated for the final half hour or so, during which the marvellous Mr. Lindley joined the two veterans. This 2CD set features the entire sets by Stills, Crosby and CSL (Crosby, Stills and Lindley!) for the first time.
