Background: Nautilus Recordings was a short-lived audiophile label based in California that released about fifty titles in the early 1980s. Most were half speed mastered pressings issued on Teldec vinyl and a few titles were direct-to-disc recordings.
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.
