Stephen Stills: Carry On (Rhino, 2013)


Dopo Voyage di David Crosby e Reflections di Graham Nash, il box set di Stephen Stills chiude la trilogia antologica del gruppo, proponendo il repertorio essenziale in edizione rimasterizzata e con un contorno di materiale inedito. Curato da Stills, Nash e Joel Bernstein (fotografo e archivista di CSN e Neil Young), Carry On si compone di ben 4 cd, dato che Stills è stato il più produttivo dei tre musicisti: al sodalizio CSN(&Y) si aggiungono infatti la sua carriera solista ed alcuni altri progetti (in particolare i Manassas).
La metà del box si compone del materiale fino al 1973, il resto copre tutti gli anni successivi, ma pochi brani rappresentano la sua produzione più recente.
I neofiti o i nostalgici si troveranno bene nell'avere una grande antologia con il meglio di Stills, sia come solista sia come parte di Crosby Stills Nash (& Young), dove riascoltare con una qualità sonora superlativa i classici degli anni 60 e 70, come "For What It's Worth", "Helplessly Hoping", "Dark Star". I cultori invece sguazzeranno nelle rarità, dosate con parsimonia (come negli altri box) ma comunque interessanti: la prima incisione di Stills 17enne, "Travelin'", la demo di "49 Reasons", la "No Name Jam" con Jimi Hendrix, l'originale "Black Coral" con le voci di CSN&Y, ed altre canzoni e/o versioni inedite.
Il libro allegato contiene articoli biografici e i credits delle canzoni, oltre a foto inedite. Consigliatissimo.
