Rock and Roll Hall of Famers David Crosby, Stephen Stills & Graham Nash are revered for their peerless vocal harmonies, inspired songwriting and musical virtuosity. They shot to immediate superstardom with the 1969 release of their self-titled debut album. The collection spawned two Top 40 hits, "Marrakesh Express" and "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes" and eventually went multi-platinum. In addition to the above mentioned singles, "Crosby, Stills & Nash" features some of their best known songs in "Wooden Ships" and "Helplessly Hoping" and "Long Time Gone", a response to the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy.
The album was very influential, defining the mid 1960's "Love & Peace" era and as much as any record, "Crosby, Stills & Nash" ushered in the early 1970's singer-songwriter boom. Everything on this album was done brilliantly - excellent musicianship, great lyrics and vocal harmonies that transcend the entire album. This is an album that should be in everyone's collection...much like a great piece of classical music, it is truly timeless.
"Written by Stills for ex-girlfriend Judy Collins, this epic harmony showcase kicked off CSN's debut album. Stills played most of the instruments, but as Nash told Rolling Stone, 'The three-part vocal blend was f*cking fantastic.'" - Rolling Stone
