Safe travels, Croz
That album got me through a summer in France. I was 15, staying with a friend's family, in a house in Opio that had an old record player and two albums. The other was Sha Na Na live. Must have listened to IICORMN over 100 times (Sha Na Na maybe 20). I always thought DC had the voice. And how about the musicians on that album? A nice tribute you put forth.
I got lucky in the last couple of years to be able to sit around the table and talk with him. Fascinating guy. Really smart and interesting. Loved to share books and then talk about them.
I grew up listening to CSN and CSNY. Thank you for sharing the lovely tribute.
There is a film many of you may want to check out called Echo in the Canyon, that came out in 2018. It is a fabulous movie that chronicles the early music scene in Laurel Canyon, California in the mid 60's. It includes candid interviews with Brian Wilson, Michelle Phillips, David Crosby, Stephen Stills, Tom Petty, Roger McGuinn, and many others, along with great music.
CSN (maybe Young) was the first/only live concert I ever saw ..in Madison Wisconsin. 'Four Dead in Ohio' about shook the foundation of the auditorium. As an Army vet I never thought our MIL would ever fire upon 'our people. CSN stretched it... It was the only song I remember. It is easy to bring back the sound. Jim
Sad…. Beck and now Croz….The Big Guys’ band just keeps getting better….
So thankful for all the magical things he conjured… tunes begetting the images and movies in our heads…. and they are ALL different for each of us and will be with us until we join them.
….and what tunings he came up with!
Nice rendition, Colin. Thanks to my Dad, I grew up listening to the many versions of Croz, Stills, Nash, and Young. Among other musical knowledge imparted to me, my Dad taught me the progression of those who were from the Byrds to Buffalo Springfield to Poco (his favorite band). More than I ever knew I wanted to know! My Dad died 12/29/2022... I miss him so much, but I'll always have the music to remind me.
On another subject... Colin, we need “Melt the Guns” merch. Not kidding.
In the early 70s, this album was my go-to late at night, mellow out music!

Beautiful job, Colin. Maybe include it in your repertoire...
Through my ramblings of finding folk music through spotify I had recently found the Crosby, Stills, and Nash record. I had fallen in love with the music immediately.
I have a major soft spot for Daylight Again and thesong The Southern Cross. I was lucky enough to catch CSN at Woodstock 94 and they were a beacon in the chaos. RiP to a mad genius
Thanks Colin. Listened to this album today and was listening to this song again today.
