Album Review

Rhino/Atlantic's 2005 compilation Greatest Hits collects the hits and signature songs of Crosby, Stills & Nash — not Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, which is a subtle difference, and one that would seem to make a greater difference than it actually does. Apart from their debut, CSN always was a bigger deal — more popular, more critically respected — when Neil Young was on board, but he only cut one studio album with them in the '70s, so there aren't that many songs from CSNY that really would have made the cut on a Greatest Hits. Then again, CSN themselves didn't cut that many studio albums during their late-'60s/'70s peak. Just three: 1969's eponymous debut, 1970's Déjà Vu with Young, and 1977's CSN. If you were charitable, you could count 1982's Daylight Again as the coda to that peak, since it did produce two excellent (and big) hits in "Wasted on the Way" and "Southern Cross," and it feels more of a piece with the group's classic work than the quartet of albums from 1988 to 1999. That is certainly the perspective taken on this 19-track compilation, which concentrates entirely on material from Crosby, Stills & Nash, Déjà Vu, CSN, and Daylight Again. Even if this means that charting singles from 1988's American Dream and 1990's Live It Up are missing, it does make for a better listen than if they were forced into this set. That said, there are still a couple of major songs missing — Young's "Helpless" and "Ohio," of course, but also "Woodstock," "Fair Game," and "Almost Cut My Hair" — but the great majority of the big hits and signature songs are here. When broken down to sheer numbers, this contains seven of the ten songs from Crosby, Stills & Nash, five of the 12 from CSN, four from Daylight Again, and three from Déjà Vu, making this a generous, well-balanced collection that will satisfy the tastes of those who want a good overview of CSN's biggest and best. It may not have everything — you'll need Déjà Vu or So Far or perhaps just Neil Young's Greatest Hits for that — but it has enough to be satisfying.

Customer Reviews

How Rude!!!!

Sorry, this is a quick and short review, purely because I have just read the "official" write up>>.. Now , needless to say, this album is FULL of the most wonderfully realised compositions, and, yes, in parts, thay are, of course, of their age... However, they have dated exeptionally well , and, as it`s used as an example, Marrakesh Express, is a song that would easilly fit on just about any album by Belle & Sebastion (to mention a few) and as such is remarkably, if surprisingly, CURRENT! I ask all fans of the band to listen, then (as I have such assurred faith) download said track & the whole album.. LOVERS of music will NOT be dissapointed, I assure you... Fantastic and TIMELESS...

vocals dont get much better than this...


This 2005 compilation (not 1969 as listed) is a thoroughly disappointing representation of one of the greatest bands of all time. It treats the classic first album respectfully, but with the exception of 'Carry On' it neglects all the best material off their greatest album (Deja Vu) in favour of Nash's fluffy pop anthems and some second-rate material from later reunion albums.

Since Nash has done most of the curatorial work on the band's back catalogue recent years, you cannot altogether blame him for giving his own material rather more prominence than artistic taste really justifies, or for un-representing (er... leaving out) Neil Young's typically superior compositions for the band, but this is still a sadly missed opportunity.

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 band to approach the overall societal impact of the Beatles. The group was a second marriage for all the participants when...
