Rock God Cred Report:

Click here to check Dave Crosby & Stephen Stills  “Long Time Gone”…from the new release by CSN “Demos”. 

“Demos” is a nice tight batch of  early recordings of  the trio’s biggest hits, crowd favorites, and solo tunes.  The sound of the demos are crystal clear.  It is always pleasing to hear classic songs in their stripped down versions.  No studio tricks or a million overdubs…just vocals, and acoustic guitars.  The bare bones…

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 .” For more information on Crosby, Stills & Nash and for updated tour information, please visit www.crosbystillsnash.com.

Buy “Demos”
