This was released in February 1971 and probably means more to me than almost any other record. I like it so much I write sad liner notes for people.
It was Crosby's first solo album, although "solo" is a bit of a misnomer since almost all the musical alumni of California appeared on it - Phil Lesh, Jerry Garcia and Bill Kreutzman of the Grateful Dead, Kantner, Slick and Cassady from the Airplane and, of course, Stills, Nash and Young.
It was reviewed at the time by Richard Williams in the MM who said it was dull, boring and unimaginative. He is now a sports feature writer for the Times.
Some notes on the tracks:-
1. Music is Love
Basic track was laid down by Crosby messing about in the studio. Nash and Young stole the tape and over-dubbed harmonies and additional instruments.
2. Cowboy Movie
This is a sort of Chanson a Clef. All the characters in the song refer to real people. Crosby is "Fat Albert", Stills is "Eli", Young is "the Duke" and Nash is "Young Billy". Rita Coolidge is the "Indian Girl". Route one bass from Phil Lesh and good old-fashioned jamming from Garcia, Young and Kaukonen.
3. Tamalpais High (at about 3 in the afternoon)
You'd be forgiven for thinking that this relates to some area of outstanding natural beauty. It actual refers to being outside a girls high-school at going-home time. But a beautiful "song".
4. Laughing
My favourite and a 1st choice Desert Island Disc. Shows off Crosby's voice. Great pedal steel from Garcia and bass from Phil Lesh. Garcia has said that his own playing on this album was some of his finest work. Brilliant accoustic guitar sound.
5. What are their Names?
Song speaks for itself - quite relevant today I suppose. Done "live "in the studio.

Of all the CSNY related solo albums, this one conjures up a mood of relaxing bliss. Crosby surrounded himself with some of the best talent available to him, e.g. Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Jerry Garcia, Greg Rollie, Graham Nash & more - and recored an album that sought inspiration from his late love, Christine Hinton. Songs Like 'Talampis High' & 'Song With No Words' are beautiful chants set to music which spawned later works on albums like 'Wind On The Water.' Equally, the accoustic matra-like 'Music Is Love' balances it well, together with the electric guitar epic 'Cowboy Movie.' The chilled out 'Laughing' and 'Traction In The Rain' are pieces which bring create a quiet & gentle atmosphere. Along with the built up mass chorus of 'What Are Their Names,' the harmonies of 'Orleans' and the stunning wordless singing employed on the album's finale 'I'd Swear There Was Someone Here' shows an amazing album which offers so much more then is at first realised.
Crosby's solo sucess is a discovery into a forgotten paradise.

I reviewed this a good while ago (still there - see the older version of the disc) and I stand by everything I said then about this marvellous rag-bag of an album except for three things:-

1. Jerry Garcia apparently played both lead parts on Cowboy movie - Crosby says so and he was there (well,sort of)

2. Stills wasn't on it at all of course &

3. Richard Williams worked for the Grauniad and not the Times.

But the point of this is to say that however many previous versions of this you may have, do buy this one. The HDCD re-mastering provides staggering levels of resolution, detail and feel that I wouldn't have thought possible. Listening to this on a really good system is about as good as it gets. Anybody know why the pictures of Jorma Kaukonen and Grace Slick have been changed in the new booklet by the way?

This is the second album to have been remastered and re-released which not only is of the age of aquarius but typifies the best of the spirit of that age. Taken together with Paul Kantner's masterful Blows Against the Empire, this album transcends much of the music which has been made since.

I may be biased but the care which has gone into making this possible is there for all to hear. Both in the CD as well as the DVD is love and devotion to the sound and general ambience. I am sure that Crosby's colleague Neil Young would be proud of the quality, timbre and life that comes from these discs.

Space, the final frontier...I remember the first CD I ever heard, Dire Straits' Brothers in Arms, and I was in sheer awe of the degree of separation and the quality of the music which shone through. After hearing both of these discs I am once more overawed, not just with the sound, the singing, the playing...OMG Jerry Garcia on the pedal steel, an instrument he had just taken up and did not know how to play and yet some of the most cosmic sounds you have ever heard man, come through from his heart. Sheer Bliss.

However I digress. There is not one song on this beautiful album that would get less than five stars. Every breath that comes from David Crosby shimmers and stirs the soul. His singing contribution as well as his writing collaborations are inspiring, almost spiritual in a hippie sort of way and I am positive that this album was the backdrop of much chemical imbibing when it first came out but it is almost like a form of chanting and reaching out into the listeners souls.
