Customer Reviews

Also, as great as the original remastered albums sound, this sounds even better!
John Russell
CSN's music still sounds very good today with their beautiful harmonies and great songwriting, this is a must have in any music-lover's collection.
Frederick Baptist
If you are a fan of CSN but have been looking for some of their newer songs on a greatest hits cd, then this one is for you.

Bear in mind, trhere is no argument about the selection of material here. If you're a fan, this collection plays to all of their strengths and wisely avoids any material from AFTER THE STORM and that infamous weenie-roast, LIVE IT UP. Unfortunately, it also avoids AMERICAN BEAUTY, which had a number of great Young-Crosby moments throughout. Even Stills rose to the occasion on that one. Still, if you were going to assemble a package that would capitalize on the catalogue that all of us Woodstock-wannabe's regard as the amber moments of peace and righteous thinking, this is it.

If you're not a fan, you wouldn't have bothered reading any of these reviews anyway.

The strength of this release, and the eclusive reason for buying it, is how incredibly great and marvellous and clear and distinct the vocals have been remastered! It truly is an aural wonder to hear and be able to identify when Crosby, Stills or Nash chime in (or for that matter when Mike Finnegan pinch hit for a drug addled Crosby). I can not remember any of their other re-mastered releases sounding this clear and well-defined. It's a joy. Almost like sitting there in front of them.

Still in all, I would think there is more money to be made in releasing some of their live shows, especially ones I caught at the Mann in Philly or in Toronto. They were astoundingly brilliant and especially in the Canadian shows singing like their visitor visas depended on it. Post addiction performances were often about redeeming their career, even if the newer material was lame. The fact that they could rise above their self-inflicted wounds was inspiring, and so perhaps they'll get around to that. Pearl Jam, the Dead, King Crimson have found gold in concert tapes, I'd hope CSN would do the same. Their shows were worth it.

Even though you may have all of the songs on this set, I'd tell you this is definitely worth it. You'll be stunned by the vocals, and that was always their strong point.

I was one of those little long-haired hippie kids who was about 4 years old when the original CSN&Y albums began to show up. Needless to say, these songs were very often cranked up around my house then and I have very fond memories of that great period. Somewhere along the line I ended up with those original albums and they were always near the top of my collection and well loved, though not in great condition. There is something to say for just getting all of the original recordings (or a larger anthology) for a band as great as this, but one could find many a great reason to get this excellent compilation! It would be great for the car or even (for those who chucked the albums) to get a decent chunk of the better tracks on one filled up cd. The sound quality is very good and playing this 77 minute cd on a nice stereo will surely lift your spirits...you will glow afterwords, I promise! Everyone has a few favorites that didn't end up on here I'm sure, but the song selection is decent. It does say C,S&N not C,S,N&Y. Oh, and they included a nice 27 page booklet mostly relevant for the decent track notes. I would rather have lyrics than pages of pictures though...ENJOY!!

Crosby Stills & Nash are Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Famers for good reason! They have been called "the voice of a generation" and at the very least their music is far superior to much of what came out of the Woodstock era. The group worked together for a VERY long time and it is terrific that this CD is coming out remastered after all these years! This CD ALSO features guest artists Jerry Garcia and Art Garfunkel--a wonderful plus! The sound is rather good and you do get 19 (yes, nineteen) songs here. We even get three songs featuring Neil Young including "Our House" and "Teach Your Children." Quite well done for a recording they polished up as a remastered release!

All of the artists perform and harmonize magnificently on this CD--as they always did--and their varied backgrounds make for an awesome blended finished product. As one Amazon reviewer notes, I also say get this CD but maybe add the album entitled Deja Vu--something a bit more kinetic--to get the experience with Neil Young adding to the Crosby Stills & Nash material.

I recommend this CD especially for Crosby Stills & Nash fans, obviously, Neil Young fans and for those music fans of the Woodstock era. This is also a fine introduction to a very influential group's work!

In their heyday, Crosby, Stills and Nash could have been singled out as the most important figureheads of the music driven, politicized hippie movement. They were counterculture leaders whose unity as a group strengthened their individual images, while serving as an example of the bond that ultimately eluded hippie culture. They were musicians who could openly admit that they also loved each other as friends, a quality that is unique and, to today's cynical culture, sadly quaint. Anybody interested in late `60s alternative pop culture does not know half of the story if they don't know the music of Crosby, Stills and Nash, and this Greatest Hits collection does an excellent job of presenting some of this band's finest moments.

My only regret with this disk is the decision to exclude all of their work with Neil Young - particularly their stellar recording of "Helpless" - but I can understand the reasoning, since Young's presence here would have deflected attention from the core trio and may have forced the necessity for a two-disk retrospective. As it is, Greatest Hits consolidates the best material from four separate CD releases, 1969's classic, eponymous debut album, 1970's "Déjà Vu", "77's "CSN" and 1982's "Daylight Again." All four albums are worth owning in their entirety but if you buy this CD, you're still doing all right - all but three tracks from the debut album appear here, while the truly best songs from "CSN" and "Daylight Again" are compiled here quite nicely.
