The Crosby, Stills Nash triumvirate shot to immediate superstardom with the release of its self-titled debut LP, a sparkling set immortalizing the group s amazingly close, high harmonies. While elements of the record haven t dated well -- Nash s Eastern-influenced musings on the hit Marrakesh Express now seem more than a little silly, while the antiwar sentiments of Wooden Ships, though well-intentioned, are rather hokey -- the harmonies are absolutely timeless, and the best material remains rock-solid. Stills gorgeous opener, Suite: Judy Blue Eyes, in particular, is an epic love song remarkable in its musical and emotional intricacy, Nash s Pre-Road Downs is buoyant folk-pop underpinned by light psychedelic textures, and Crosby s Long Time Gone remains a potent indictment of the assassination of Robert Kennedy. A definitive document of its era.
