1971 saw the release of solo albums from all four members of CSN&Y: “Steven Stills”, Graham Nash’s, “Songs For Beginners” and Neil Young’s “After The Gold Rush”. 45 years ago today, February 22, David Crosby got into the act with his classic “If I Could Only Remember My Name”.

He enlisted the help of his friends, some of the most prominent Bay Area musicians including members of The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane and Santana plus vocals from Joni Mitchell and most memorably Graham Nash who appears throughout the album with incredible harmonies.

A sidebar to the album is that in 2010 The Vatican listed it second on their “Top 10 Pop Albums Of All Time.” Maybe they thought the Crosby-Nash harmonies were Gregorian Chant.

Today on The Vinyl Frontier we’ll play the lead track from this 45 year old vinyl. It’s called “Music Is Love” and it features David, Graham and Neil.

Hear it today at 4p.
