Crosby, Stills & Nash

Just got back from my local record shop and picked up the new (Woodstock anniversary) CSN issue of their first release (self titled).
i already owned an original copy but I’m a sucker for fresh/new vinyl. 
Its limited edition Burgundy colour. Gatefold Jacket is texturized 
As for the vinyl, it’s dead quiet and flat as a pancake 
absolutely wonderful. 

Highly recommend this 

I hope that Deja Vu is going to get a reissue soon.

not sure if there is a CSNY thread here yet, but anyone who wants to discuss these guys and their music let’s have at it. 
Peace

    Still got my So Far vinyl!

    I absolutely love their music and history, their ties to LA as well.

    But good god, the one time I saw a live clip I wanted to cover my ears.  Their harmonies were way off from what's heard on albums.

    I picked up the reissue from this year of so far. It’s white vinyl and another textured sleeve. Unfortunately not a gatefold though. 
    I recently also picked up a new bio book on them that I can’t wait to get into.

    Got to see CSNY a couple different times at the Bridge School Benefit concerts. They always sounded good to me there. But what sounds good live doesn’t always translate to video or audio. Still was really cool to see them. 
    Peace,Love and Pearl Jam.

    What a group!  Some of the songs haven't held up as well for me over the years but so much of this music is timeless. 

    I saw CSNY at Winterland, San Francisco in around 1971.  The first set was an acoustic set of just CSN.  It was great and Stills was a real stand out in that set.  For the next set, Neil Young and drummer Dallas Taylor and bassist Greg Reeves joined the trio and played a knock out set which included a stunning "Down By the River".  At the end of that number, we the crowd went wild with cheering and you could tell all four CSNY knew it had been a magical moment as they came together in a tangled group hug of four guys and their guitars.  An unforgettable show!

    Look up CSNY with Tom Jones on YouTube if you have a working internet connection (unlike myself) and you will find one HOT! little jam!

    I was recently close to buying two records of theirs... but man... to me they come of as boring mans Simon and Garfunkel at times... they need Neil :)

    Would love going through their discography (and the guys solo stuff) when I have the time.

    Man, Simon/Garfunkel have got nothing on CSN(Y)
    ya it can be mellow but the melodies and harmonies are like no other.

    Maybe I should have bough the albums.. found one of the albums for like 2-3 euros... 

    Will listen after lunch.

    "Treetop Flyer" is a great Stills Alone song.

    Really enjoyed seeing CSNY live, but I must admit their recorded output is probably my least listened to Neil Young project.  Live they were fantastic, and to me the songs were much stronger than on record.

    I feel the same way.  I hope there is more great live stuff in the vaults somewhere that will see the light day.
