On This Day in 1992 – CSN Finally Gets Their Gold Record
On this day in 1992…23 years after its release…Crosby, Stills & Nash’s self-titled album, with’Suite: Judy Blue Eyes’ and ‘Marrakesh Express’, was finally certified Gold.
It went Quadruple Platinum in August of 2001.
‘Suite: Judy Blue Eyes‘ was penned by Stills and was about his relationship with folk singer Judy Collins.
Here’s the album version of the song:
‘Marrakesh Express’ reached #28 on Billboard charts. Graham Nash wrote it for The Hollies to record. When The Hollies broke up, he took the song to his new band and the outcome was awsome…thanks in large part to the group’s wonderful harmonies.
