Xiekitchen, you are so right! Stephen certainly assembled an all-star band to play virtually any kind of music. That album featured standard rock, country, cuban bluegrass (Stephen grew up in central america) and great blues. The musicians: Stephen Stills - vocals, guitar, keyboards Chris Hillman - vocals, guitar, mandolin Dallas Taylor - drums Paul Harris - keyboards Fuzzy Samuels - bass Al Perkins - vocals, best peddle steel I ever heard Joe Lala - vocals, percussion
I don't think any band played so many different kinds of music so perfectly and not lose a double album flow!
A truly amazing album that for me stands alongside "Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs" and the "Are You Experienced" as my favorites.
Here are three that were around long enough to get into our heads, but went away before we could really glom on to them: 1) Creedence Cleawater Revival. You can throw out a lot of dates, but lets go with 1967 - 1971 2) The Doors. Interestingly enough, also 1967 - 1971 3) The Smiths. 1982 - 1987

Yow, Aiudiofeil! - Thought I was the only one that remembered Crabby Appleton ! I've searched but haven't found them on-line...is it still possible?
How about "Good Rats"?
You have a great list of bands here. I really like David and David - esp. "Welcome to the Boomtown". Was living in Houston mid-80s after the oil industry crashed when that came out.
