notes by the taper
Back in the summer of 1980 I had the chance to attend my very first show of one of the members of the legendary supergroup CSNY. Stephen Stills was touring Italy with his California Blues Band along with Angelo Branduardi and Richie Havens. Stills act was the second of the night but there was a beginning and an ending song with all three singers together. At that time I was working for a local radio (Radio Supermilano 102.7) and I came across an incomplete but superb recording of the show. Crowd noises seem to be very far on this recording so I guess it was taken far from the audience somewhere in the big stadium. Few years ago 38f uploaded his recording of this show which was complete apart from the first and last songs with Branduardi Stills and Havens together. I used from this recording the song "It's Just A Rumour" and first 25 seconds of "Precious Love" missing on my tape. Recently my friend L.C. came across a third source (FB recording) for this show, inferior quality but including the jamming songs Get Together at the beginning and Blowin in the wind at the end (incomplete) never circulated in the past. The first 25 seconds of track 2 and the entire track 8 were taken from previous audience recording uploaded here by 38f and no more available. Tracks 1 and 17 are from the 1st copy from the original FB master.
