Crosby, Stills & Nash - CSN (New Vinyl LP)
Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing. CSN is the fifth album by Crosby, Stills & Nash, released on Atlantic Records in 1977. It is the group's third studio release, and their first since their debut album without Neil Young. It peaked at #2 on the Billboard Top Pop Albums chart; two singles taken from the album, Nash's "Just a Song Before I Go" and Stills' "Fair Game" peaked at #7 and #43 respectively on the Billboard Hot 100. It is currently the trio configuration's best-selling record, outselling 1969's Crosby, Stills & Nash. It has been certified quadruple platinum by RIAA. Many of Stills' songs on the album echo his marital problems, with "Dark Star" returning to the Latin rhythms he had favored all the way back to his Buffalo Springfield days. Crosby continued the existential probings consistent with much of his past work, and Nash offered both a radio-ready acoustic ballad with "Just a Song Before I Go", and an elaborate set piece re-creating a vision of an LSD experience that he had in Winchester Cathedral with "Cathedral". Many tracks were sweetened with a string section, a first on a CSN project.
