Biography

Long May You Run is an album credited to “The Stills-Young Band,” a collaboration between Stephen Stills and Neil Young, released in September 1976. The Stills-Young Band recorded the album and began a tour in 1976 prior to the album’s release, but Young dropped out of the tour when he grew bored with the project, forcing Stills to complete the concert tour solo. The band was together from July through October of 1976. Outside of Stills and Young, the other members of the group came from Stills’ solo band.

The title track, the album’s first single, was an elegy for Neil Young’s 1948 Buick Roadmaster hearse, his first car. The album stemmed from a desire by both Young and Stills to pick up where they left off with their Buffalo Springfield-era guitar explorations. CSNY cohorts David Crosby and Graham Nash got wind of the project, and “Long May You Run” briefly became a CSNY album. But before long, Young and Stills decided to wipe Crosby and Nash’s vocal harmonies from the album tracks in their absence (ironically, Crosby and Nash were busy putting finishing touches on their own duet record.) Crosby and Nash were livid when they found out, and it would be eight years before the quartet even considered working together again (Crosby, Stills and Nash would regroup in 1977 for an album and tour.)

    I had tix to see this concert tour in Atlanta. Young bailed out just before that show date. The show was canceled. I had that ticket till the ink faded off of it. It was $5.00 for that seat in the balcony, less that 2hrs. working wages. Can you imagine seeing a major show now for only 2 hrs. work wages?

    I used to dislike the album, but then I listened to Stills' work, and I liked it more. It sounds much more like Stills' solo that Young's because it uses Stills' backing band. Even the songs that Young wrote sound like Stills solo (aside from Young's very different voice).
