Product Description

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.ca

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This is a very good cd, except that deja vu is a better cd. Not to say that this one is bad at all. ALL of the Songs are AWESOME. If you don't want to listen to good 60's or 70's music than don't listen to this. David really doesn't know what he is talking about.

There is only one VERY LARGE PROBLEM WITH " CROSBY STILLS NASH YOUNG. The ratio of New Material to Greatest Hits Discs is far to low. In other words fully 50% of the discs this band has is made up of GREATEST HITS discs. The band appears lazy and truly not very creative when it comes to looking at their library. Oh they have a great library but there simply isn't much of it. The first LP was missing Young, Deja Vu was the first for the total band and then they very slowly began to put out their various LP/CD's even so the total amount of fresh new material was never more than a dribble and the greatest hits, and other compilations of their songs began almost immediately.. This is one of the better compilations of their material, I feel it is short and could have been a bigger number of songs...in all i think that there are better collections of best of C.S.N.Y that is why i only gave it a three. If defense of the disc it was one of the first collections and really has been used as a model maybe by other compilations...Spigomars

Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young was one of the greatest classic rock bands, period. Any band the members of this band once played in (Buffalo Springfield, The Hollies, etc.) and even each individual artist's solo material paled in comparison to what they accomplished as a fully-functional unit. In the seventies, this compilation of their material was released. How does it measure up? Read on and see.
PROS:
If you want the biggest hits that this quartet recorded during their prime, you've come to the right place! Wooden Ships, Teach Your Children, Ohio, Woodstock, Our House, Helpless, Guinnevere, and Suite: Judy Blue Eyes are all here for your listening pleasure. And unlike many recent greatest hits albums that have been released for various artists, these aren't edited versions! You even get two unreleased tracks - one of which is the masterpiece Ohio, written about riots.
CONS:
WHERE IS THE BAND'S BIGGEST HIT, CARRY ON!? What about the masterpieces Long Time Gone and Forty-Nine Bye Byes? Why are the songs horribly out of their original release order? Why does this album only take songs from a few albums? When this was ported to CD, why didn't they add bonus tracks or find some way to make it worthwhile? Just about every song on this compilation can be found on the band's first two albums, Crosby Stills And Nash and Deja Vu. GET THE ALBUMS INSTEAD.
OVERALL:
I love the musical stylings of this band, but this compilation is pretty much worthless by modern standards. They have several multi-disc compilations, as well as their individual albums. I strongly recommend buying the albums rather than this. Greatest hits albums usually fail to capture the essence of the band they represent, and this is no exception.

The songs don't flow well. Each song sounds like it's from a different band. I know that this a greatest hits album, but the songs should have been arranged better. Quite songs and followed by loud songs, electric by accoustic; it's just a hard album to listen to. The songs are good, but it's missing some songs that should be on there, and has some of the groups weaker songs-- ie stardust-- which is a cover of the much better joni mitchell version. It's nice to have "Ohio" and "The cost of freedom". Overall, it's good, but it could have been better. I would have been happier if i would have bought one of their albums instead.

When I was little my mother used to play Crosby Stills & Nash back then I didn't like them. My Sophomre year in High School (1991) my mother bought this CD. I really enjoyed listening to it then and would love to get another copy of it( ours got scratched form listening to it so much, this was mainly my doing!). It wasn't until I listened to this CD that I changed my outlook in life and on many other things. I seriously became a hippy after listening to this CD. Two years later I was voted class hippy and went to see CSN every year in the summer before the Beach Boys would appear. CSN and Beach Boys were the two concerts I would see every year. This is a great introduction to CSNY and good intro to their styles of music.

Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young were masters of acoustic guitar rhythms and vocal harmonies, and made an important contribution to the popular culture of the tail-end '60s/early '70s. So Far captures the spirit of their early-period generally sanguine view toward things. Their version of the utopian "Woodstock" is better known than Joni Mitchell's original, even though they did not play the song at the giant music & arts fair. However, they performed more songs there than any other group, including three in this set: "Guinnevere," "Find the Cost of Freedom," and Stephen Stills' lovely classic, "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes." Stills' "Helplessly Hoping" elevates the spirits in spite of its title. Even in David Crosby's mournful anti-war statement "Wooden Ships," a beautiful chorus line tells you to forget, as the music glides ahead: "Sailing ships on the water very free and easy/easy you know the way it's supposed to be." The group protested with dignity in Neil Young's "Ohio," capturing the sadness of the Kent State deaths, but also calling for action: "What if you knew her and found her dead on the ground/How can you run when you know." Graham Nash's optimism rings forth in "Our House" and "Teach Your Children," the latter of which also conjures up a view to the future, and a hopeful one, something this band did on occasion in contrast to so many '60s groups.
So Far was a good effort at collecting the best of what CSNY had accomplished in their short existence, but because the group's first two albums were strong such gems as "Marrakesh Express" and "Carry On" had to be omitted. However, "Ohio" and "Find the Cost of Freedom," originally singles, are available only on this CD and other greatest hits collections.
