Stephen Stills was (and still is) a passionate champion of liberal causes and Mimi Farina’s Bread and Roses Folk Festival was a highpoint for any discerning artist with such political persasion. Held at U.C. Berkeley's Greek Theater from 2nd- 4th September 1978, Stephen Stills was actually a last minute addition to the bill, performing alongside Hoyt Axton. Pulling only two songs from his then new album Thoroughfare Gap to include in his solo acoustic set, an emotionally pronounced Stills had ample room to explore his back catalogue of solo, CSNY and CSN songs. Klondike’s retrospective  release of this seminal appearance by Stephen Stills authorises a valuable snapshot in his career as a sincere and passionate performing artist. His surprise guest appearance in September 1978 is now recognised as a highpoint in his live work and is presented here in its entirety.
