Graham Nash on Releasing More 70's-Era CSNY Material

AUSTIN, TX - APRIL 8: Rock and Roll Hall of Fame singer-songwriter Graham Nash performs at the Civil Rights Summit at the LBJ Presidential Library April 8, 2014 in Austin, Texas. The summit is marking the 50th anniversary of the passing of the Civil Rights Act legislation, with U.S. President Barack Obama making the keynote speech on April 10.
With the "CSNY 1974" live box set finished and due out July 8, Graham Nash is turning his attention towards other material in the supergroup's vaults.

Nash, who produced "CSNY 1974," tells us he'd like to go even farther back in the group's history:

"I've thought about talking to Neil (Young) about taking the 1970 stuff, because we filmed a lot of that stuff and our shows at the Fillmore East, for instance, are some of the best shows we ever did. They were full of incredible tension. We were on top of the world. The music was great, and it was filmed and outside stuff was filmed. When we get over this '74 thing I'm going to talk to Neil about doing that."

Nash has also said he's considering a box set from the sessions for CSNY's first album, "Deja Vu," which came out in 1970.

"CSNY 1974" documents the group's legendary tour from that year which brought rock tours into stadiums for the first time. The set will be released as a single CD and as three-CD, one-DVD deluxe version.

Crosby, Stills & Nash, meanwhile, return to the road on July 2 in Bethlehem, Pa.
