Crosby, Stills & Nash Crosby, Stills & Nash on 180g LP!
Remastered from the Original Analog Tapes and Pressed at Pallas in Germany!
The Very Best-Sounding Edition of This Essential 1969 Folk-Rock Classic!
The enduring nature of Crosby, Stills & Nash’s magical self-titled debut owes not only to impeccably played songs and resonant lyrics but to a career-defining performance by rock’s first supergroup. Crosby, Stills & Nash is an example of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts. Folk-rock would never be the same.
Already a proven guitar master, Stephen Stills sought a fresh beginning after Buffalo Springfield splintered. Similarly, vocal powerhouse David Crosby came onboard after leaving the Byrds. Graham Nash drifted over after a stint in the Hollies. Together, the three singer-songwriters’ mellifluous harmonies and intricate, homespun arrangements remain unsurpassed some 40-plus years later.
The evidence pervades the band’s initial 1969 effort, whose charms are reflected in standards such as the multi-part “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes,” breezy “Marrakesh Express,” poignant “Helplessly Hoping,” and poetic “Wooden Ships.” CSN’s group chemistry—as well as the distinctive nature of their own individual singing, interwoven guitar parts, and contrasting personalities—would define the era’s Laurel Canyon sound and scene for years to come, and become a permanent part of an American culture dealing with conflicting themes of peace and war, love and violence, and change and status quo. No wonder the music has lost none of its relevance.
Always renowned for its great sound—the seamless blending of voices, acoustic textures, organic presence, and intimate tones have made the record an audiophile favorite—the album has been afforded the ultimate treatment that brings to fore the musical details, depth, and dimensions on a level never before experienced.
Mastered from the original analog tapes and pressed at Pallas in Germany, this stunning LP reissue sounds drop-dead gorgeous. Demonstrating that it’s stopping at nothing, Warner Bros. also reproduced the jackets and sleeves according to the specs of the originals, so that even the textures are faithful to what you would have held and felt in 1969. The results add up to the VERY BEST SOUNDING AND LOOKING PRESSING of Crosby, Stills & Nash ever released.

The uniqueness of their vocal blend, as well as the uniqueness of each solo voice, made them the top vocal group in the world, and they are still today thrilling millions of fans they have accumulated over the years.” — Ahmet Ertegun
