David Crosby released a concert album, David Crosby & the Lighthouse Band Live at the Capitol Theatre. The CD plus DVD package arrived Dec. 9, 2022, via BMG. The 16-song collection, recorded in 2018, draws largely from his late period renaissance as a solo artist and also touches on his career as a member of Crosby, Stills & Nash and CSNY. Watch the performances of a CSN classic, as well as “1974,” a long-lost demo track that Crosby had “sitting on my computer for 40 years,” and listen to many of the other tracks, below.

The two-time Rock & Roll Hall of Famer is a co-founder of the Byrds and Crosby, Stills & Nash. He turned 81 on Aug. 14, 2022.

From the Oct. 4 announcement: Continuing to forge new paths in his eighth decade, Crosby again joins forces with Becca Stevens, Michelle Willis and Michael League, the three musicians known as the Lighthouse Band, who he’s been working with since 2016’s Lighthouse album.

Far from just a solo live album/DVD, working with his first new band since CPR (Crosby, Pevar and Raymond), Crosby and the Lighthouse Band quickly discovered their chemistry and took a collaborative leap during their 2018 tour together in support of Crosby’s seventh solo album, Here If You Listen. This live set was recorded and filmed on the last night of the run at the historic Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY. The setlist includes a 10-minute reading of “Déjà Vu” (scroll below to listen to it), as well as “Guinnevere” and “Woodstock.”

Vocalist/guitarist League shares, “I found the demo and I listened to it. I fell in love with this and I thought, you know, Crosby should finish this and he said, ‘Man, it’s been sitting on my computer for 40 years, so you know, whatever, sure’, so I sent it to Becca Stevens and she was like, ‘give me a crack at it’ – so she came in a couple of days later with four-part harmonies for the entire song, lyrics for the entire song, and we sat down that day and kind of fine-tuned things, and so 44 years after it’s… conception a song was born.”
