Stephen Stills shared a previously unreleased version of his live medley, “49 Bye-Byes”/”For What It’s Worth.” The solo piano performance is set to appear on the legendary singer-songwriter’s upcoming live album, Stephen Stills Live At Berkeley 1971, set for release on April 28 via Iconic Artists Group/Omnivore Recordings.
Captured at the Berkeley Community Theater over the course of two concerts in August 1971 on Stills’ first solo tour, Stephen Stills Live At Berkeley 1971 boasts 14 previously unreleased live tracks. Those cuts include lead single “Love The One You're With” from Stephen’s solo catalog as well as favorites from both the Crosby, Stills & Nash songbook — Crosby himself makes a guest appearance on the live LP — along with a song from Stills’ previous band Buffalo Springfield.
That song is the iconic “For What It’s Worth,” which is proceeded by the stellar Crosby, Stills & Nash closer “49 Bye-Byes.” Fans of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young’s landmark 1971 live album Four Way Street will recognize Stills’ masterful mashup of the CSN and Buffalo Springfield numbers in a country and gospel-tinged piano arrangement on which he gets the audience involved.
