Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young – Celebration Copy promo-only mono LP with insert

A rare MONO copy of the promo-only album Celebration Copy by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, complete with bio insert.

$195.00




Offered for sale is a very rare mono copy of the promo-only compilation LP Celebration Copy by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, complete with a very rare 2 page biographical insert.

After the release of Deja Vu in 1970, the four members of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young went their separate ways and began to release solo albums.  As all but Neil Young remained with Atlantic Records, Atlantic saw an opportunity to promote the new solo product alongside the older Crosby, Stills and Nash and Deja Vu LPs.

To do this, the label declared “Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young Month” and sent out this LP to radio stations, calling it “Celebration Copy.”

The 12 track LP was only issued as a promotional item in the United States, though it was commercially released in a few countries, including Australia, Venezuela and Greece.

Tracks are:

Side 1

  • Stephen Stills – Love the One You’re With
  • David Crosby – Music is Love
  • Graham Nash – Military Madness
  • Stephen Stills – Bluebird Revisited
  • Graham Nash – Simple Man
  • David Crosby – New Orleans

Side 2

  • Crosby, Stills & Nash – Long Time Gone
  • Crosby, Stills & Nash – Marrakesh Express
  • Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young – Carry On
  • Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young – Woodstock
  • Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young – Teach Your Children
  • Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young – Ohio

The original LP was a promo-only release, and as such, only a few hundred copies were pressed for radio station use.  Nearly all of those copies were pressed in stereo.

Atlantic pressed a few copies (we’ve heard as few as 50) in mono for use by AM radio stations, which broadcast their programming in mono only.  Both mono and stereo copies had the same cover, but mono copies are noted by a special sticker on the cover that says “dj copy monaural,” as well as a label which has the word “stereo” conspicuously missing.

These are mono mixes of tracks that were otherwise available on albums that were only available for sale in stereo.

About this copy: This copy of Celebration Copy is special in several ways.

This copy of Celebration Copy is in mono, and has the sticker on the cover noting that it is a monaural pressing.

We’ve had a few copies of this album in the past (all in stereo,) but this copy includes a 2 page biographical insert with information about all four band members that we have never seen before.

The cover is VG+, with wear at the corners and edges.  The record is M- and aside from a small inaudible scuff through one track appears as though it might be unplayed.  The insert is VG++, with a few minor creases.

This is the only copy of this album that we have ever seen in mono and the only one that we’ve ever seen to include the biographical insert.
