Sweet Yehudi Blue Eyes
He looked at me, deep into my eyes, and sighed. "You know what you really don't play enough of? You know what this world needs more of? Crosby, Still, Nash and Young."
Then he sat me down and made me listen to a version of "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes" that sounded like a rehearsal tape - you can hear David Crosby exclaim, "Beautiful!" at the soaring harmonies got just right - truly a sweet, sweet version of the song.
I knew he was right, and I knew why in particular CSNY NEEDS to be played tonight: to help bring rain upon our drought-stricken world. There isn't enough beauty in this world. CSNY bring down beauty and beauty is like rain ... let the deluge begin, my friends!
CROSBY, STILLS, NASH & YOUNG AT THE FILLMORE EAST, 1970
