Now that this chunk of thread has been moved and given its own corner, might I suggest a name change?  I'm not sure that "Crosby Nash" quite fits the bill.

How about: "Crosby, Nash, Young & possibly Stills"?

Young, Young, Stills, Nash, Crosby, Dibble and Grub?

What are we defining as latter day here? From 2000 - 2010 there are several albums I like, if not love; Silver & Gold, Are You Passionate?, Prairie Wind, Chrome Dreams II. Greendale & Living With War have moments. Fork In The Road is fun if not deep. After that Psychedelic Pill and Storytone are the only ones I can really justify as albums. I know you are not fond of the writing on the latter and my preference is for the acoustic disc which I think is mostly rather lovely.


I can't even remember half of them.  I adore Silver & Gold.  I thought Are You Passionate?, Chrome Dreams II, and Psychedelic Pill all flirted with being good, yet were still patchy.  The rest I either found dull, or clunky, or I haven't even bothered hearing.

Yes, I am not claiming greatness for any of them, with the possible exception of Psychedelic Pill but they are all albums that i can listen to end to end and there is greatness therein. I'm surprised you don't like Prairie Wind. It is very much in the Silver & Gold mould to my ears.

I put the four names into an anagram generator and it came up with hundreds of possibilities though this one caught my eye (minus one letter o)

Similar sound, but a major drop-off in song quality.

Crosby's Thousand Roads which I did buy and then gave away. Having listened to it on Spotify just now I think I made the right call. Not one I'd rush to listen to again.

Now listening to the CSN 77 album.



Thousand Roads is my favourite Croz solo album but I can see why you and others don't rate it. There are very few Croz writing credits, it has very soft rock, practically Yacht rock arrangements and even though it came out in 1993, it still has a very Eighties production.

For whatever reason though, it really hits the spot for me.  Smiley
