Don't know what Andy's problem with the horns is. Brassy arrangements were very much "in" in the early seventies (Chicago, Blood Sweat & Tears, Joe Cocker's band on Mad Dogs and, above all, the Stones on Exile on Main Street)so Stills was merely reflecting this. I think this just pips the first Stills album because the best tracks here (the gorgeous Fishes and Scorpions, Know you got to run, and the incomparable Word Game) are even better than the best tracks on Stills 1. And I have to say I love the re-working of Bluebird almost as much as I love the original. So, yes, this album sits squarely in the glorious CSN early seventies catalogue, along with Stills 1, Songs for Beginners, Wild Tales, If I Could Only Remember my Name and the first Crosby/Nash album, along of course with Crosby Stills and Nash and Deja Vu. I love them all.
