Wooden Music 

1. How Have You Been - Winterland - 1969 

November 13, 1969 - This is the only known performance of one of the
rarest released CSN songs. It's a solo performance by Stills. According
to the Euro authors book, Crosby strained his voice at a rally that day
and they had to make some quick setlist changes.

2. Bluebird - Fillmore East - 1970 

June 3, 1970 - Dylan was in the audience and Stills had been drinking
and was showing off for Bob. According to Zimmer's CSN biography, Stills
went out to do one acoustic song and he did four. It pissed off a
certain Englishman. As the applause dies on Bluebird, Stills says, "I
haven't done that ever that way in front of people". These words were
for the benefit of Dylan.

19. Daylight Again/Find The Cost Of Freedom (Complete Version) -
Manassas - BBC - 1972 

November 16, 1972 - DA/FTCOF performed in it's complete arrangement, a
seven minute suite. Stills performed this version several times, each
time with different lyrics. Stills comments about the song from the
boxset booklet: 

"Daylight Again was actually a precursor to "Find The Cost Of Freedom",
but for years all I had was the tune and the first line..... I was in
Williamsburg, VA, drunk and burnt out and dead tired. At the end of the
concert I began to play the song. I didn't have any words, but I
continued to play. I closed my eyes and went into a trance and saw a
movie. It was a talking dream where I went back 112 years, to the Civil
War. The lyrics just flowed through me like an automatic poem. I sang
them as they came into my head and a whole story unfolded. When the
concert was over I rushed backstage and madly tried to reconstruct the
lyrics. It's a war song, not just a Civil War song. We lost that war,
too: we still have racism, don't we?"

"I got good grades on all my papers, but it took Dylan to get me to
write. All of a sudden, I was thinking in complete sentences and using
my whole vocabulary. Hey, naive rhymes with grieve! He woke me up." -
Stephen Stills
