David Crosby :: 1970 Session Outtakes

One of my favorite LP’s from the early ’70s is David Crosby’s underrated masterpiece “If I Could Only Remember My Name?” A fully realized embodiment of the “sound” of California’s folk/rock/country/psychedelia movement of the time, the album features such players as Neil Young, Jerry Garcia, Joni Mitchell, Phil Lesh, etc., etc. Almost as good as the album (and just, if not more interesting) are these outtakes from the 1970 sessions. These tracks are further proof that Crosby was an artistic force to be reckoned with at his creative peak.

Also of Note: If you are interested in this snapshot in time, the late ’60s and early ’70s Southern California folk-rock scene, keep reading. A book that has recently grabbed my attention is Laurel Canyon: : The Inside Story of Rock-and-Roll’s Legendary Neighborhood. Chronicaling the state of one of L.A.’s most interesting and famously “arty” neighborhoods, the book excels delving into country-rock and the surrounding scene that developed around it.

  1. The original Crosby album that these outtakes are taken from is one of my all time favorite under-appreciated classics of the 70’s. A number of times I’ve played that for some of my more astute music friends and they’re always surprised by how captivating the mood is (mind altering or not) and how strong the songwriting is. I for one would LOVE to hear these outtakes as I knew nothing of their existence. Is there anyway you could repost/re-upload them for us to hear?

    Take care,
    A longtime, loyal fan of your website.

  2. Yo – I will create a zip file of these Crosby tracks and post them within the week.

    “If I Could Only Remember My Name” is one of my all time favorite “album” experiences. It hits the mood 100%
