Repost: Crosby’s 1970 outtakes (aka, Perro tapes)
One of my favorite LPs 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 as, 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.
