David Crosby If Only I Could Remember My Name
cd is OK quality, but musically? ---easy to argue its better than anything CSN(y) did. what a record. and that pic of him w/ the red background staring into the camera? ---if you needed foreshadowing of him getting busted for drugs, that pic was it.

Wife trouble
sage advice is:happy wife, happy life.so, man cave it is.yes, i'm divorced. and i doubt i'm getting married again. the stereo takes up the whole damn living room. really, music is life, so i'm just using the living room as intended.
