"David Crosby, If Only I Could Remember My Name - 200 Gram"

DAVID CROSBY - IF ONLY I COULD REMEMBER MY NAME - factory sealed 200 gram Audiophile Masterpiece. After leaving major rock bands they had each helped form, Stephen Stills (Buffalo Springfield), David Crosby (The Byrds), and Graham Nash (The Hollies) came together in late 1969 to form the pioneering rock and roll "supergroup," Crosby, Stills and Nash. Thanks to his much-publicized personal travails, it's easy to overlook the multiple talents that originally made David Crosby a star in his days with The Byrds and Crosby, Stills and Nash. This, his first solo effort, was recorded in 1971 (following Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young's Deja Vu) and contains some of his most impressive vocal and songwriting work, including the haunting "Laughing," the mantra-like "Music Is Love," and the extended, impressionistic "Cowboy Movie." With guest appearances by such famous friends as Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Grace Slick, and Jerry Garcia, it's a fascinating chapter in an always-interesting career that's all too often been overshadowed by headlines. For anyone who truly appreciates the scope, verve, and power of sixties music, this LP literally says volumes. Using an eclectic and heavily electric but dreamy LA sound base, Crosby weaves a series of thoughtful, mystic, and mysterious moods with this music. From the dreamy opening bars of "Music is Love" through the fanciful strains of "Cowboy Movie" all the way to the haunting strains of "Laughing", he shows why he has so many friends in the music business. ll of CSN&Y are here, appearing alone or in combinations on individual song cuts. But this is most emphatically not just another CSN&Y album. Rather, this is an unusual yet emblematic album that only someone as rarely gifted and as counter-cultural as Crosby could take from conception, through writing, production and performance. The shame is that the album is one of a kind. None of his other works with Nash or CSN or CSN&Y are as unabashedly David Crosby. Buy it, spin it, and enjoy it. You'll be humming the bars to any one of a number of the instrumentals like "Orleans" for weeks.
