Déjà vu

Y, N, C & S
It's supergroup time today with CSNY featuring on CMM.
From 1971 Déjà vu is the first album to feature the quartet of David Crosby, Stephen Stills, Graham Nash and Neil Young (CSN having recorded an earlier album).
They are joined by Dallas Taylor on percussion and Gregory Reeves on bass with cameo appearances by Jerry Garcia (pedal steel on Teach Your Children) and John Sebastian (harmonica on the title track)
Songwriting duties are shared and you won't be surprised to note that Joni Mitchell also gets in on the act.
The two songs I've chosen somewhat coincidentally are written by ex Hollies member Graham Nash.
Amazingly, despite the vast amount of pharmaceuticals they have consumed over the years, the four main protagonists are still pretty much alive and kicking. Aged between 68 and 72 there is every chance that assorted members could pitch up at a large arena near you.
You have been warned.

Crosby, Stills,Nash & Young - Teach Your Children

Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young - Our House


  1. Fortunately th enearest large arena is 160km away (that's 100 miles to you) so they can pitch up there all they want. Having said that I have 3 CSN/CSNY albums. THREE.

  2. You picked out the right ones from a fantastic album CC. I grew up with Dejá Vu and it was always a close friend to mine. Superb songs and Graham Nash was in this super group very underrated. Great post. Have a good time. x
