EXPERIENCE ROCK HISTORY!
CROSBY, STILLS & NASH – May 29, 1969
David Crosby (The Byrds), Stephen Stills (Buffalo Springfield), and Graham Nash (The Hollies) – three well-known and respected musicians and vocalists became superstars with one of the best albums of the representation of the Vibe and “togetherness” that the Counter-Culture was experiencing during the mid-to-late ’60s and early-to-mid ’70s.
These tracks were more than just songs, they were emblematic of the times; they had a meaningful glow and an upbeat spirit. CSN were blessed with soul-pleasing harmonies and with fine / divine hard rock-to-acoustic musicianship all arranged within exceptional compositions.
Whether on a road trip, hangin’ out with friends, at a party, or alone, Crosby, Stills and Nash hit on a unique combination of sublimely addicting, Rock, Folk, Roots that fit perfectly with the ambient mood of Hippies and Tribes across the Nation, and eventually the world.
The album coincided with the near peak of the Brotherly Love era, 1969, and was a place that CSN created where the Counter-Culture resided. To see them on the album cover seated on that couch was to see yourself and your friends on any given day – Crosby, Stills and Nash were Brothers.
Back then when musicians had experienced mind-expanding drugs, they came back from their Trips and translated the experience into visionary music that was recorded, pressed into vinyl and sold to an eager audience of “experienced” souls who would then appreciate the played-back resultant Vibe.
Within this process of communication the listener understood not only the meaning of the lyrics but on a deeper level the feelings within the lyrics, as they felt the same way; this gave the Bands a way to speak for a generation of like-minded individuals.
Crosby, Stills and Nash’s music and songs became so popular that the anticipation of their second release, 1970’s Deja Vu with Neil Young, (which only took two months to make) created advance sales of two million! This was a huge statistic back then.
When the ’60’s protest songs united the youth of America and to an extent people world-wide; albums like Crosby, Stills & Nash did the same thing
only they united people’s spirit.
