Crosby, Stills And Nash Demos on 180g Vinyl LP

12-Song Collection of Previously Unreleased Demos from 1968 to 1971 Offers a Behind-The-Scenes Glimpse at the Earliest Days of One of Rock’s Most Legendary Partnerships

After four decades as “three together,” the creative partnership of David Crosby, Stephen Stills, and Graham Nash is one of the most enduring and influential in contemporary music. This compilation of previously unreleased material takes an unprecedented look at the earliest days of their collaboration with 12 demos from 1968 to 1971 of destined-to-be-classic songs that would later be featured on CSN’s studio albums and solo titles.

While a number of demos feature members performing solo (and one finds them joined by Neil Young), the set opens with the trio harmonizing on “Marrakesh Express,” recorded four months before their self-titled debut LP was released in 1969. Other rarities include seminal takes on “Almost Cut My Hair,” “Chicago,” “Long Time Gone,” “Love The One You’re With” and “Déjà Vu.”

The collection, produced by Graham Nash and Joel Bernstein, reaches as far back as ’68 with Stills’ “My Love Is A Gentle Thing,” and also features his solo classic “Love The One You’re With.” Highlights include CSN harmonizing on a January ’69 take on “Marrakesh Express,” Crosby and Stills on “Long Time Gone,” and Crosby and Nash joined by Neil Young on “Music Is Love” (a song later featured on Crosby’s solo debut If I Could Only Remember My Name). Among the other highlights are three songs that would appear on Nash’s solo debut, 1971’s Songs For Beginners, including “Chicago” and “Sleep Song,” and Crosby performing unaccompanied on “Almost Cut My Hair” and “Déjà Vu.”

“On some of these songs you really hear us becoming a band, trying out different ideas in our songwriting and singing and harmonies. It really is a time capsule.” — Graham Nash
