About this copy: This copy of Crosby, Stills and Nash is a 1976 Japanese reissue of an LP that was originally released in 1969.

The disc is M- and has a single spindle mark on one label, so it might have been played once.
A beautiful copy of a terrific record.
Background: Crosby, Stills and Nash was billed as the debut of a “supergroup” when it was released in 1969, and the LP didn’t disappoint, reaching #6 on the U.S. charts, helped by the singles “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes” and “Marrakesh Express.”
The Crosby, Stills & Nash triumvirate shot to immediate superstardom with the release of its self-titled debut LP, a sparkling set immortalizing the group’s amazingly close, high harmonies. While elements of the record haven’t dated well — Nash’s Eastern-influenced musings on the hit “Marrakesh Express” now seem more than a little silly, while the antiwar sentiments of “Wooden Ships,” though well-intentioned, are rather hokey — the harmonies are absolutely timeless, and the best material remains rock-solid. …A definitive document of its era.
