'Crosby, Stills & Nash Demos' by Crosby, Stills & Nash
Rhino Records is proud to present Crosby, Stills & Nash Demos available in stores everywhere June 2nd 2009!
This album is a behind-the-scenes look at the group's early days with a wonderful collection of 12 previously unreleased demos recorded between 1968 and 1971.
As members of one of rock's first supergroups, David Crosby, Stephen Stills, and Graham Nash helped define the Woodstock generation through their peerless harmonies, resonant songwriting and deep commitment to political and social causes. The trio will tour this summer in both the U.S. and Europe, with more dates to be added to the U.S. leg. In between the late-spring North American and early summer European segments of the tour, Crosby, Stills & Nash will be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame on June 18 in New York City, and before the tour begins, Rhino will offer a behind-the-scenes look at the group's early days with a collection of 12 previously unreleased demos recorded between 1968 and 1971.
More than half of Crosby, Stills & Nash Demos comprises early versions of songs destined for solo projects that each member focused on following the success of Déjà Vu. Stills released his self-titled debut in 1970, which introduced "Love The One You're With," his biggest solo hit to-date and a live favorite. Stills recorded this version in April 1970, more than six months before recording the album version in London. Another Stills demo, "Singing Call," features a song that would appear on his follow-up, Stephen Stills 2.
Nearly all of the tracks on Crosby, Stills & Nash Demos were recorded at Wally Heider studios, a popular recording destination on the West Coast for everyone from Jefferson Airplane to Creedence Clearwater Revival. Nash chose Heider's studio to record his 1971 solo debut, Songs For Beginners, demoing much of the album there as well. This collection includes three of those demos: "Sleep Song," "Be Yourself," and the politically charged "Chicago."
