Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young - Almost Cut My Hairand
After years of rumors, premature announcements and even disagreements over what to call the thing , Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young are finally ready to release a box set of live recordings from their reunion tour. The set was produced by Joel Bernstein and Graham Nash. It only took us a year to actually do the physical work, but it took three or four years to get that work together. Of course, that happened one-third of the way into the project, so we had to redo an awful lot of stuff. But it sounds totally amazing. They played 30 shows at American arenas and stadiums as well as one gig at Wembley Stadium in London, with the group playing upwards of 40 songs over a four-hour period during some shows.
Add Genre. Add Styles. Add Moods. Add Themes. The truly inspired interaction exhibits the raw and unabashed fury that became synonymous with the supergroup's "electric" material with sizable instrumental contributions from all four. However, there is no doubt that it is Crosby who dominates the proceedings with perhaps the most impassioned lead vocal of his career.
Its gorgeous, emotional break combines an out-on-the-highway slide guitar folded magically in with surf guitar. We longed for accessible tunes from Patti Smith. The intro casually noodles, then fires up into an ardent gallop that supports and then is overshadowed by the lead guitar riff. One of the most influential Rock tracks — arguably the first Psychedelic Rock song. It certainly was the first psychedelic hit.

The song describes a real-life dilemma faced by many hippies : whether to cut one's hair to a more practical length, or leave it long as a symbol of rebellion. Although the notion of long hair as a "freak flag" appeared earlier, notably in a Jimi Hendrix song " If 6 Was 9 ", Crosby's song has been credited with popularizing the idea of long hair as a deliberate and visible symbol of the wearer's affiliation with the counterculture , and opposition to establishment values. The song also writes about the singer's "paranoia" at seeing the police; James Perone writes that, "more than any other song of the entire era", it "captures the extent to which the divisiveness in American society It became one of Crosby's signature songs,  and "probably his most important political song".
