David Crosby and Graham Nash Launch New Label Blue Castle Records With First-Ever Digital and Vinyl Releases of Their Renowned 1971 Live Set 'Another Stoney Evening' on March 22

LOS ANGELES, March 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Singer-songwriters David Crosby and Graham Nash have been harmonizing ever since Crosby, Stills & Nash formed in 1968. In addition to making music with CSN and CSN&Y, an ongoing element of their collaboration is recording and performing as a duo. That two-man configuration is celebrated this spring with both a nationwide tour kicking off March 25, and the launch of Crosby and Nash's new independent label - Blue Castle Records, distributed by ADA and ADA Global - with digital and vinyl versions of Another Stoney Evening as inaugural releases on March 22.

Another Stoney Evening was recorded on October 10, 1971 at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles during one of Crosby and Nash's first in-concert performances as "two together." Previously released only on CD (in 1998), Another Stoney Evening captures an intimate performance spotlighting the duo's stellar harmonies, acoustic guitar and piano accompaniment, and between-song banter. Song highlights include "Deja Vu," "Wooden Ships," "Southbound Train," "Immigration Man," "Guinevere," and "Teach Your Children." Distribution for Blue Castle is through Alternative Distribution Alliance (ADA) in the U.S. and Canada, and Alternative Distribution Alliance Global worldwide.

"This album represents the very beginning of our musical relationship as a duo," says Nash. "Whatever David and I do well together, it's wonderful that we're still doing it well. For the upcoming tour, with a rock 'n roll band, we've gotten fantastic advance response. It's exciting to be bringing this great new show to people."

The two-month long Crosby/Nash tour itinerary begins with more than a week of shows in California before leaving the west coast for dates across the country. Crosby and Nash will be accompanied on the road by an ace-backing band featuring James Raymond (keyboards), Dean Parks (guitar), Kevin McCormick (bass), and Steve DiStanislao (drums).

The tour will mix acoustic and plugged-in performances. "Touring with a full band gives us the opportunity to do selections from our catalogue that Graham and I haven't performed live together before," says Crosby. "We will also be introducing some brand new songs we've written, that have never been heard onstage or on record."

David Crosby and Graham Nash have each been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice - once with Crosby, Stills & Nash, and a second time with the Byrds and the Hollies, respectively. In addition to Another Stoney Evening, as a duo, they have also released the studio albums Crosby & Nash (1972), Wind On The Water (1975), Whistling Down The Wire (1976), Crosby-Nash (2004), and Highlights (2006).

The Crosby/Nash tour has also partnered with Brita on its FilterForGood movement, making Brita Hydration Stations available to dispense filtered water, free-of-charge, to concert attendees. For special benefit seating for the Crosby/Nash tour, please visit www.guacfund.org
