Crosby, Stills and Nash Play Their Debut Album - Royal Albert Hall (London - 10/11/13)

Friday night at the Royal Albert Hall was one of those nights where you probably had to be there. It was an event; with expectations high as this was the night, possibly cleverly marketed, where they were playing their 1969 debut album in full.The crowd made for an interesting mix, with good numbers of women and not just those accompanying their greying partners, but lots of what looked like mother & daughter combinations, and unlike many CSN gigs I have attended in the past, a good…See More

John Graveling replied to Hal Bogerd's discussion 'Live gigs: How short is too short?'
"Roger McGuinn does the same, a straight one hour show, although you do get an encore. I would think 75 minutes is fair for most singer-songwriters in a club. That said I got three hours of Crosby, Stills & Nash on Friday night at the Royal…"

Greg Trooper

Back in August 1997 while on our annual visit to Nashville I was browsing in the long defunct, Compact Discovery record store, on 21st Ave., opposite Vanderbilt. I used to enjoy looking out for the writers whose names appeared on the records I bought. I had bought Vince Gill "When I Call Your Name" back in the late 80s and remembered the name Greg Trooper from his song "We Won't Dance" that Vince covered on said record. Now staring me in the face was a cd "Noises In The Hallway" (D'Ville…See More

Shawn Colvin & Mary Chapin Carpenter, Festivall Hall, London 10/22/12

Shawn Colvin & Mary Chapin Carpenter turned the Festival Hall into a living room last night with their between song banter, manual tuning, and gave it a 70s hippy vibe not a million miles from what artists like Crosby & Nash dished up, making it a wonderful night of wooden music. Shawn is decidely 'kookie-kutter' while Chapin is just the consummate artist but their friendship and camaraderie is there for all to see. We got a fair number of covers starting with opener, "Catch The…
