An urban legend
, perhaps, but Steve Stills was taken off a CSN&Y
tour for a few days, owing to the need for some emergency dental work
. Roberta Flack, a fellow Atlantic Records
recording artiste, was doing a gig at a jazz
club in the vicinity; she was deputised to take Stills' place - she knew much of the material already.
CFNY played three dates of the tour. Of course, there were those who wanted their money back, but those who stayed were impressed; Flack's lack of guitar skills were compensated by the addition of her gospelly piano, and her voice blended well with the others. None of this material ended up on Four Way Street, but somewhere, in some vault, is recorded evidence of CFNY. Or so I'm told.
