Déjà Vu Tracklist:
This is one of my personal favorite Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young albums. This album has a great flow, track after track. Also, this album has great vocals, great drum solos, and great guitar solos as well. Finally, the instruments wrap around the vocals like no other, and intertwine perfectly. Definitely looking forward to the next limited play album, and extended play album from Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young.
Highly innovative yet consistent with American Folk and Rock traditions- this album with the the first CSN defined the Zietgeist of the times - Delivered to your ears by a team of geniuses. If you want to know about the Era, this is essential listening.
C ,S,N were brilliant; however, with the quirky genius of Neil Young added to the mix, and his infamous ability to become the sandpaper between the other three, makes this an ALBUM to be remembered and absorbed! (I adore his intro to "Don't Let It Bring You Down " on the 'live' album! It proves his worth in the group.) 'Twould that there was a compilation of just those albums: "Four Way Street" and "Deja Vu"! Of course today we can make it so today ! Ahh, I am in the laid back-anything -is -possible groove now ! Thank You God!
Deja Vu is the follow-up to the original CSN record. Now they have Neil Young added to the mix, and I think this is their best album. I love the baroque qualities of songs like Carry On, mixed with psychedelic guitar work. I also like the Neil contributions, including the classic Helpless. There are a lot of different styles here (Helpless, Carry On, and Our House are all quite different), but they work to make a cohesive whole. As always, the harmonies are awesome. This feels like a 60’s record, though it hints at the 70’s to come.
This album from start to finish will take you on a ride through life's most precious moments to the most terrifying times. It's an album every young man should own and listen to with a clear mind and open heart. To be specific the steel guitar playing on "Teach Your Children" is simple yet full of character. You can thank jerry Garcia for that. He joined the guys in studio and really brought that song the legs it has been running on for 40 years.
In 1970, my sister bought this album as a gift for my 12th birthday. At 12 I was only listening to Hendrix - she bought the LP for herself. Over the years, while I became a professional musician, I came to love this gift. Good choice, sis.
A few great songs, but under its gawdy surface this is a flawed work. The obvious stars here are ... surprise! ... Stephen Stills and Neil Young. Their most memorable contributions (Stills' "Carry On" and Young's "Country Girl" opus) are Buffalo Springfield do-overs, showing, as was the case in that earlier incarnation, that one band couldn't contain the dueling styles of these monumentally gifted musicians. David Crosby was just along for the ride, with contributions that were forgettable at best. And Graham Nash? His bell-like voice makes him a welcome back-up singer, but his compositions are even more lamentable than Crosby's.
This is the Album to get if you're a Fan of either of the four names on it! CS&N have been real good alone, in studio & on tour, together these four are great! In Concert? It's hard to surpass them when they're on! A three hour show at their age now? It's a Special Show to see! CS&N is starting a World Tour in Early 2013 & I strongly recommend it, go back to the good Ol'Days! No doubt, it will bring you back to younger days!
One of the best albums I've purchased on ITunes. Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young should go down in the history books as one of rocks best groups of their era. The arrangements are so beautiful and captures the spirit of the 60's. I will have this on heavy rotation whenever I entertain at home!!!
This album brings me back to my 18th year and all the changes of that magical, crazy, and violent time. Woodstock, Teach Your Children, 4 + 20, Carry On all conjure up a simpler time of innocence, discoveries and changes in the world. It truely is a Deja Vu!
Love the Album. Live about 100 feet from the Woodstock Festival and saw CSN play at Bethel Woods this year (as well as CSNY at Bethel Woods 2 years ago). Great songs, great musicians, great people, what more could you ask for?
This album followed up their eponymous debut perfectly. And Neil was a lovely addition. The first side of this album is flawless. I can't name many songs that equal the level of Carry On, and i know many songs. The last three tracks are forgetable, but not nessisarily completely weak. but if 4 + 20 was Ohio, we'd have us a perfect album for sure. The lyrics and diversity are very fresh and very pleasing to the ears. You dont get tired of the album, because one track is a heavy rockin jam and the next is a beautiful harmonic masterpiece. "And you know... it makes me wonder, whats goin on, under...THE GROUND? Do you know, do you wonder whats going on down under youuu?" -genius. Our house is phenominal and catchy, Teach Your Children is a classic, Helpless is passionate, and you'd have a very very hard time convincing me that the CSN version of Woodstock doesn't completely blow the blan, slow Joni Mitchel original out of the water. (nothing against her, Court and Spark is one of my favorite albums) This was very innovative, and got folk-rock mainstream. This lost the Grammy of Album of the Year to Bridge Under Troubled Water. I believe that this was the superior album, and deserved it more. Its a f**kin crying shame that music like this isnt made anymore. We have a saccharine, spoiled, uninspired generation of "musicians" now. Fleet Foxes has nothing on these legends.
At the death of the 60's, few albums more exemplified the next stages of rock's long wayward course. Not to be trifled with, Deja Vu brings it all back home, chiseling the legacy of what ruled about Californian (and Canadian!) rock.
