Crosby, Stills and Nash - Almost Cut My Hair - Madison Square Garden, NY...

Best version of this Classic of the Hippie Lifestyle and Long Hair I think The Wizard has ever heard CS&N do , better even the recording ! But when your peers are watching you , no matter what your gig is , everyone tries a little bit  harder ! In this Case,  David Crosby reared back on his vocals and put a whole lotta soul into it ! At the Shameful R&R Hall of Fame 
25th Anniversary Show ! So many greats as yet not inducted , its a crying shame , as some say who cares ! As Aretha sang it
 R-E-S-P-E-C-T !
 But when has R&R and its followers ever been respectful ! I say from the beginning of it all , and I was there.....we may not have behaved well all the time , but allot of the bad Behavior was provoked , granted by drugs , sometimes , but many time by Police in the audiences. I saw that more then once in a while.
     I just cannot believe Deep Purple , Yes , The Moody Blues , Jethro Tull , Chicago and The Doobie Brothers , just to mention a few Bands who the inmates at the R&R HoF have not inducted . especially , those that are still touring ! Yet Abba , Rappers and Madonna inducted, too mention a few ,  WTF are they , they ain't R&R to me !
