My Favorite Records:CSN&Y- Deja Vu

This is the another installment in my series of favorite records.

I’m a little more into the &Y than the CSN, but there’s no doubt that Crosby Stills Nash & Young made two great records. Four Way Street is a masterpiece in its own right, but for my Top 50 list I’m going to pick the 1970 issue Deja Vu.

Carry On, Teach Your Children, Helpless and Woodstock are anthems for anyone who grew up in the early 70s. But the songs on the record that make it a classic are David Crosby’s Almost Cut My Hair (must have been because I had the flu for Christmas) and Neil’s Country Girl (country girl I think you’re pretty). Then there is the timeless and beautiful Our House which will always be one of my favorite songs. This record is a bookend with Neil’s Tonight’s the Night as the best of my expansive Neil Young record collection.

Most of you have heard this record and many of you own it. If you haven’t and don’t, you are in store for a treat.
