The internet is truly a wonderful thing., I am able to conduct nightly treasure hunts without ever leaving my house. In my case, the treasure takes the form of studio outtakes/archives from my favorite bands which provide me with an experience that is as close to time travel as I will ever get.
Today’s offering is from my personal treasure stash. We have traveled back to 1969 and find ourselves in the studio with Crosby, Stills, and Nash as they are working on Déjà vu, their second album. While there is plenty of amazing music from their time in the studio, what I am sharing with you today is a short chat between David Crosby and Stephen Stills. Take a listen.
We all know that the Grateful Dead were great musicians that never seemed to translate their talent into commercial success, but I think it was fascinating to listen to Stephen and David discuss plans for saving them. To the best of my knowledge neither David nor Stephen followed through with these plans but David had significant collaborations with various members of the Grateful Dead while making his first solo album, If Only I Could Remember My Name. Check it out if you don’t have it already. I guarantee you will not be disappointed. As always, let me know what you think.
