Art-For-Art’s-Sake Theatre: CSNY “Down By The River”

Time once again for our usual midday Wednesday feature.

By the late 1960s, I didn't care much for the so-called "acid rock" that was in fashion. What little sense (if any) to be found in the lyrics was rather depressing, and those so-called "rebels" against society were getting rich over whining about it. Crosby Stills and Nash changed all that, at least for me, with the release of their first album. Neil Young, who had worked with Stills in Buffalo Springfield a few years earlier, joined them shortly thereafter. This is their first TV appearance (I think) as a foursome (with extras) in 1969. I actually saw this one live, in living black and white.
