Offered for sale is a copy of the compilation U.S. LP Celebration Copy by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, issued only as a promotional item.
About this copy: This copy of Celebration Copy is a 1971 pressing on the Atlantic label.
The cover is VG+ with slight corner and edge wear and trace ring wear. This is the cleanest copy of this cover we’ve ever seen, as it’s notoriously prone to cover wear.
The two page bio sheets are missing, as they nearly always are. We’ve included photocopies.
The disc is VG++ and very close to M-, with just a couple of very faint sleeve scuffs. Clean disc!
A nice copy of a scarce Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young LP.
Background: 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. It was released in Japan under the title All Together Now, which featured a different cover.

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.
