When Graham Nash casually added a high harmony to the song Stephen Stills and David Crosby were singing while sitting around at a friend's house, the beauty of the sound immediately struck all present. Consequently, one of the greatest and most enduring partnerships in popular music was formed. Not only did Crosby, Stills & Nash create some of the finest vocal-harmony arrangements of the late 1960s and early '70s, the group contained three hit folk-rock songwriters and, in Steven Stills, a world-class multi-instrumentalist.
The disc opens with "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes," an early tour de force that combines a percussive acoustic-guitar attack with unconventional song structure and singing that's alternately soulful and angelic. Other highlights include the fuzz-guitar-drenched "Wooden Ships" and the sunny pop of "Our House." GREATEST HITS comes as advertised, collecting many of the trio's best-known tracks from their classic albums, as well as charting singles from the 1982 comeback disc DAYLIGHT AGAIN ("Wasted on the Way," "Southern Cross").
