Biography

The musical partnership of David Crosby, Stephen Stills, and Graham Nash, with and without Neil Young, was not only one of the most successful touring and recording acts of the late '60s, '70s, and early '80s (with the colorful, contrasting nature of the members' characters and their connection to the political and cultural upheavals of the time), it was the only American-based ...

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

The early best by the vocal supergroup who emerged as the "voice of a generation" after their storied Woodstock performance. Suite: Judy Blues Eyes and the classic hits Our House; Woodstock; Ohio , and Teach Your Children join Helpless; Wooden Ships , and more!

Amazon.com

It's tempting to follow the post-Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young career of Neil Young and underestimate this early band as a lighter, commercial diversion. But their fourth album, a concise retrospective of highlights, remains a sweeping '60s document, full of pastoral optimism and the virtues of (even today) spectacular-sounding harmonies. These songs continue to dominate AOR radio, and the best--the searing "Ohio" (written after the Kent State massacre), the utopian "Woodstock," and the ominous, graceful "Wooden Ships," the band's best performance--have an artful, mystical sweetness. --Roy Francis Kasten

5.0 out of 5 stars Magical July 11, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Greatest hits compilations almost never carry the emotional weight of the album on which the original songs existed. "So Far" is a lovely exception. From the disjointed opening of "Deja Vu" to the celebratory "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes", every song is a masterpiece and a classic.
CSN&Y put together some of the most sprawling contrapuntal harmonies ever committed to tape. Their vocal intonation is stunning and the interplay on "Helplessly Hoping", "Wooden Ships" and "Guinnevere" give me chills.
This record is perfect for the CSN&Y newcomer and is a perfect sampling of their career until 1974 for the completist. Buy this, you'll be more than glad you did.

5.0 out of 5 stars CSN&Y 's Greatest Hits! September 1, 2000
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
From the very beginning of their fateful collaboration, it was clear that this was to be the first of the new super-groups, composed of discontented refugees who either quit or were bounced from monster groups like the Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, and the Hollies. And after an initial success with a first album the group added Still's former partner in crime from the Buffalo Springfield group Neil young to the line-up, the strange witches brew of creative energy and talent that resulted exploded onto the contemporary rock scene at Woodstock to an amazed audience with such power and originality. Of course, this collection of their greatest hits was the result of their original collaboration, and it shot to the top of the charts, where it remained for years!
This album is full of smash hits and breath-taking sounds, from the opening "Déjà vu" to the elegiac "Teach Your Children" to the elegiac "Wooden Ships". They don't make a single false step here, covering all the biggest hits of their first run at it in the late sixties and early seventies. Indeed, everything is seemingly perfect, from the plaintive sounds of Young's piercing falsetto in "Helpless" to Nash's masterfully gentle ballad "Our House". Of course, their masterpiece on this album is the epic tribute to "Woodstock", a cover of Joni Mitchell's song that they rushed to include on the album after hearing her sing it to them on the phone right after the Woodstock festival, which she couldn't get to because of the traffic. To see how well they transformed her folksy dirge into a rock classic is to understand their native talents and interpretive skills. Everything here is terrific, and my own favorites of "Ohio" and "Suite Judy Blue Eyes" are here as well. This is a great collection of their work together, and one of the best "Greatest Hits" albums from the sixties, and one everyone who calls himself (or herself) a rock fan must own and have on the shelf. Enjoy!

Considering that the bulk of this collection comes mainly from Crosby Stills and Nash's debut and the CSN&Young album Deja Vu, this is a good overview of their 2 most popular albums. Though all the songs are great, I don't consider it all you need to hear from CSNY. After all, they'd have other projects like solo albums from all four, side projects (Mannassas and Crosby&Nash) and other albums and hits beyond this. But if you've never heard their music, this collection should be enough to get you interested in CSNY (besides, this was originally released in 1974 and deals exclusively with their 1969-71 era). The cover features some pretty artwork by Joni Mitchell, who was a friend to the band. From their debut, you get Crosby's placid "Guinevere," one of the most creative story-songs "Wooden Ships" co-written and sung by Crosby and Stills (Paul Kantner also helped to write it, although he didn't get credit until years later), Stills' winsome "Helplessly Hoping" and the quintessential epic "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes," which was written for Judy Collins, whom Stills dated. Inclusion of Nash's "Marrakesh Express" would've been appropriate, but back when this was released, there may have been the issue of time restraint (most LP records were usually no longer than 40 minutes). From Deja Vu, you get the title track (composed by Crosby) which sounds like a medley in that it starts out bright and slows down, Nash's "Teach Your Children" (a very positive message about parents and children getting along with each other) and "Our House" (which described a house Nash shared in Laurel Canyon with Joni Mitchell), Stills' take on Mitchell's "Woodstock" (it's a shame "Carry On" wasn't included but again, it's probably a question of time restraints) and Young's introspective "Helpless.

5.0 out of 5 stars How can anyone not like this CD? April 18, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This, in my opinion, is probably the best CSN recording I've ever owned. How can anyone not like Suite: 'Judy Blue Eyes', or 'Helplessly hoping'? or their excellent rendition of 'Woodstock' (by far better than Joni Mitchell's melancholy original recording)? Not to mention 'Teach Your Children', and 'Our House'. These songs are poetic and artistic, rich in imagery and soothing to listen to. I believe they all flow well together, and I never tire of listening to this CD. In my opinion it's one of the all-time greatest. Give it a chance, you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic March 23, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
So Far is an amazing album. Each song is one of CSN&Y's best. I can listen through the entire album two or three times in a row and I just get *so* involved in it each time. If you don't own a lot of CSN&Y albums, you should get this one because each song is great. Starting with Deja Vu and ending in the soulful Suite: Judy Blue Eyes, you won't want to miss a note.
