(Rhino) The legendary guitarist, singer-songwriter Steven Stills, and former member of Buffalo Springfield, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, and Manassas has influenced many on his musical path. On September 22, Rhino is bringing back memories of his earlier days with the release of Manasas 'Pieces', a 15-song collection of unreleased recordings from sessions for both of the band's albums.

Stephen Stills has influenced generations with his powerful voice, songwriting artistry, and passionate guitar playing, both as a solo artist and as a member of Buffalo Springfield, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, and Manassas. Rhino reveals a snapshots of Stills' early days with the release of Manassas PIECES, a 15-song collection of unreleased recordings from sessions for both of the band's albums.

After recording his second solo album, Stills formed Manassas in 1971 with a talented group of musicians that included Chris Hillman, a former member of the Byrds and The Flying Burrito Brothers. Manassas released two albums, 1972's eponymous double-album debut and the 1973 follow-up, Down The Road. MANASSAS - PIECES features alternate versions of two songs from Down The Road: "Do You Remember The Americans" and "Lies" (featuring guitarist Joe Walsh). The collection also includes the legendary group's unreleased performances of "Sugar Babe" and "Word Game," a pair of songs Stills recorded in 1971 for his second solo album. The remaining tracks include "Like A Fox," a song recorded with blues guitarist Bonnie Raitt on background vocals and the Latin-tinged "Tan Sola Y Triste" (Spanish for 'So Alone and Sad').
