This is the version with extra tracks

on 5/11/2012

This is the new reissue with extra tracks (check the release date). Great stuff, too -- Stills' pre-solo album version of Do For The Others is terrific, as is the rendition of Everybody's Talkin'. This version of Song with No Words was on the box set (not sure if it's exactly the same, but it's the same recording), but it's pretty great stuff. The demo of Teach Your Children is awfully nice, too. Apparently, in about '69 or '70, every time these guys picked up a guitar and started to sing, it was pretty special. Of course, the original album is a stone classic, one of the best albums ever. It just has a quality to it that you can't exactly put your finger on. Every track just glows. If you don't have this album, you should probably buy it. If you have it, you're probably a fan, and I'd recommend this version just for the extra tracks. Read More

Recording information: Wally Heider's Studio III, Los Angeles.
It was big news in 1969 when former key members of the Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, and the Hollies--three of the finest bands of the '60s--splintered off to form their own trio. Despite their already-proven talents, few could have imagined the gossamer vocal blend that would become the trademark of supergroup Crosby, Stills & Nash. The band's debut effectively provided the soundtrack to the summer of '69.
For his part, Steve Stills keeps exploring the progressive folk-rock sound that he'd pioneered with Buffalo Springfield; signature tune "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes" is an expansive, multi-section affair that makes full use of the group's vocal skills. Fresh from the Hollies, Graham Nash adds an accessible pop sensibility, epitomized by the effervescent ditty "Marrakesh Express." David Crosby, always the wild card in the Byrds, here adds rough edges and flashes of mystery with his cutting protest rocker "Long Time Gone" and the exquisite art-folk of "Guinnevere." With this kind of firepower under its belt, it's no wonder CSN quickly became one of the biggest groups of their era.

Rolling Stone (7/26/69, p.36) - "This is an eminently playable record....The vocals are warm and full...with rich, complementary harmonies....Tasteful backing accompanies the superb compositions....the result is an especially satisfying work..."

Uncut (p.110) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "CSN defined themselves by chilling out and laying back, turning down the volume on the Byrds/Springfield amplifiers. In place of electric fizz and crackle came softer tones, richer layering."
Dirty Linen (p.56) - "CSN showcased tight harmonies and innovative songwriting..."
Mojo (Publisher) (p.114) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Every song was masterfully crafted and performed, some of the most valuable work its three principals would ever produce..."
