Crosby, Stills and Nash
Songs From the Past
Known as the first true 'Super Group,' Crosby, Stills and Nash (CSN) has been carving out their musical legacy since coming together in 1969. The guys first joined forces after parting ways with their original bands; Crosby from The Byrds , Stills from Buffalo Springfield and Nash from The Hollies. From its inception, the goal of CSN was to form a group that had it's own unique sound, but would also allow the guys the flexibility to pursue solo projects and the ability to play with other bands. It seems to have worked as CSN is still relevant, popular and touring the world today. And though they continue to look toward the future, they haven't forgotten their past which is why their recent album is a look back at their origins. Demos features 12 previously unreleased demo tracks from 1968-1971, including original versions of songs that would later define them as a band.
