Stephen Stills Box-Set To Be Released in March

Carry On, a four-CD box set chronicling the the career of legendary singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Stephen Stills will go on sale March 26. The anthology—which was produced by Graham NAsh and Joel Bernstein, with help from Stills—contains 82 tracks from throughout Stills’ 50-year musical journey. The set includes more than an hour of previously unreleased material, such as the Jimi Hendrix collaboration “No-Name Jam” and “Travelin’,” a song that Stills recorded at the age of 17. Carry On also features plenty of classic songs that have been newly remixed, including “Change Partners” with Jerry Garcia on pedal steel guitar. The box set comes with a 113-page booklet with rare photos and extensive liner notes. The four-CD edition of Carry On will be sold for a suggested retail price of $54.98, though a digital version will be available as well. The full tracklist can be viewed below.

I assume a lot of disc 2 is with Manassas. I love about half of Stills stuff. Don’t know if I’m ready to shell out $55 for this. If you haven’t heard much of his early seventies stuff, he’s got several rather obscure gems sprinkled over several albums. His creativity has kind of dried up over the years since in my humble opinion. He’s also underrated as a guitarist. I’d love to hear more out-takes from jams with Eric and Jimi and the likes.

stills first five solo albums are massively underrated … especially stills 2 and still stills … both full of incredible songs and all worth reinvestigating … nice to see to a flame and love story on here but where is the brilliant solo version of bluebird revisited ….yes I look foward to this box but do yourself a favor and pick up all the early solo albums .

A retrospective of one of the worlds finest musicians is long overdue. I got a little shiver down my spine as I read the track list; all those glorious songs spanning the years of my youth and adulthood to the present day.
The recent CSN live DVD saw Stephen in sparkling form; Girl From the North Country, As I Come of Age and So begins the Task had me in tears and the Suite, well I am lost for words!
Thank you Stephen Stills.

I am a huge fan, so take this with how many grains of salt you choose ;) Very nice selection from one of the greatest musicians of his era. A tremedously gifted, and vastly under-rated guitarist (one of my faves) with great chops, and a gifted songwriter as well. I am really looking fowrard to this one. His early work is well-represented, but we could have used one or two more songs from “Man Alive”,another tremendously under-rated work. Still, on the whole the selectons are pretty close to what I would have chosen.

Though not one of his stronger efforts, IIlegal Stills (1976), is a sentimental favorite (I was an impressionable 10th-grader at the time of its release. Surprised not one of its songs made it to the boxed set. “Stateline Blues” is one of Stills best acoustic numbers.
