Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
4 Way Street

  (Item #: crosb4ways_1705) 

Our Price: $399.99

  • An honest to goodness Top Copy, with two Triple Plus (A+++) sides and two Double Plus sides - this is about as good as it gets, folks

  • Bill Halverson did a great job but you have to work your tail off to find a copy that does his brilliant engineering justice. Sad, isn't it?
  • Rolling Stone raves that "Crosby, Stills. Nash, and Young are all performers of unquestionable talent, and mostly because they stay out of each others' way, 4 Way Street must surely be their best album to date."
