Offered for sale is an early Japanese pressing of Crosby, Stills and Nash, the self-titled debut LP by the group of the same name, including the original obi.
About this copy: This copy of Crosby, Stills and Nash is a 1973 Japanese pressing on the Atlantic label of an LP that was originally released in 1969.
The 1973 issue is the same as the 1971-1972 issue, except that the price on the obi and cover are ¥2300 instead of ¥2000.
The cover is M-. The obi is incomplete; the back half (which was plain white paper) was cut off. The front half is original and is VG+ with a minor fold in the center. We’ve repaired the obi to make it complete.
The lyric insert is VG++ with light foxing, but no wear, writing, or tears.
The disc is M- with a faint inaudible hairline on side one.
A nice copy of a terrific LP and one that’s hard to find as an early pressing.
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.
