Description

Towering Inferno features legendary singer/songwriter David Crosby performing live at the Tower Theater in Philadelphia in April of 1989. Originally broadcast as part of the King Biscuit Flower Hour radio program, the concert came on the heels of Crosby’s release from prison after a two-year incarceration on drug charges. Here, Crosby performs a mix of songs from his 1989 comeback album, Oh Yes I Can, as well as a handful of classic Crosby, Stills & Nash favorites.

After a stint in prison, David Crosby emerged from his year-long incarceration a completely clean and sober man. His revitalisation was marked by a period of unbridled creativity, yielding his second solo record Oh Yes I Can released in 1989 – a full 18 years after his debut, the magnificent If I could Only Remember My Name from 1971 . Crosby was supporting the album during his spring 1989 tour and on April 8th he performed at the Tower Theatre in Philadelphia. The show was aired on FM Radio and the results of that broadcast can be heard on this CD. Backed by a powerhouse combo that included longtime CSN band mate Michael Finnigan (keyboards), Dan Dugmore (guitar), Jody Cortez (drums), and Davey Faragher (bass/vocals), the stripped down sound suits Crosby as his powerful, emotive vocals, and strident fretwork has rarely been as well defined or as energetic as they are here. The show begins with an acoustic setting on the opening pairing of Tracks In the Dust and one of the most hauntingly beautiful readings of Guinnevere ever to have been committed to tape. While not a huge commercial success, Oh Yes I Can, along with the tour designed to promote it, was an important artistic statement for David Crosby. It marked his return to the pop pantheon and featured some of the best non-CSN music he has ever made. Tracks from the album here rub shoulders with a number of old classics rearranged for this band and tour – among them Déjà vu , Wooden Ships , Almost Cut My Hair and Long Time Gone .
