    PRODUCERS' NOTE

    Like all of the musicians on this album, we grew up deeply affected by the music of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. Perhaps it was even deeper for us as Europeans, because America was only a place we dreamed of, a far-off romantic world that we tried to understand, and music, movies and books were the among the ways we discovered it. This album is our little effort to thank the four men who opened up that world to us, and made it sing in harmony for more than forty years.

    Heartfelt thanks go also to all of the artists and bands — most of them good friends of ours — who are part of our larger musical world. Not only did you create your own great music, gifting us with beautiful original songs, but helped us make this tribute album possible.

    Music is love. That has always been the case. Once upon a time, through the songs of CSNY, we discovered that love was worldwide.

    A PRESENTATION BY DAVE ZIMMER, author of "Crosby, Stills & Nash: The Biography" and editor of "4 Way Street: The Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young Reader"

    The music of David Crosby, Stephen Stills, Graham Nash and Neil Young has moved so many people, reaching across borders around the world, their music resonating with loyal legions of fans and inspiring musicians everywhere. In the late ‘60s and early ‘70s, writing, singing, playing and performing at the peak of their talents, they released a series of albums together and as individual artists that established key signposts of their musical styles, distinct but connected, forged with otherworldly harmony blends, vintage rosewood acoustic guitars, as well as big white and old black electric guitars, that endure to this day. What draws us so powerfully to these artists? For me, it’s a combination of Crosby’s mind-bending chords and vocals, Stills and Young’s multi-colored guitar explorations, and Nash’s timeless messages and high harmony, cresting stunning songwriting that addresses both personal and social issues. While the artists had all previously made their marks in formidable rock and roll bands -- Crosby in The Byrds, Stills and Young in Buffalo Springfield and Nash in The Hollies -- the unique character of their music kept growing. More than 40 years ago, these musicians were looking inward, speaking out and writing songs that helped define a generation. Well, that generation grew up, as did the artists, but this connection and bond continued; then new generations discovered them, and much of the musicripened and gained fresh meaning with new causes and the passage of time.

    The strength of these newly recorded versions is a testament to the artistry of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young as well as the special nature of their songs, which hold up beautifully when interpreted and reimagined by a varied roster of artists that range across decades, musical genres and different parts of the globe: from California, Texas and New York to Dublin, Liverpool and Australia; from traditional folkies and alternative rockers to gifted guitarists and bluegrass pickers; as well as wonderfully amazing vocalists, from yesterday and today. There is even a family tie.

    That CSNY feels like a family, with all of the love, rivalry and resiliency this entails, extends to the fans and musicians around them, creating a circle of fellowship and fraternity that is often unspoken but very real. There is a sense that “we're all in this together” and can share in the communal experience. The specter of love looms large with each of these artists, who have turned matters of the heart inside out with so many of their songs, capturing feelings of tenderness, hope and tattered emotions, often writing about the ladies they cherished and longed for. Still, a good number of their songs can be interpreted with musicians of either gender, as this collection shows so well, with both male and female vocalists bringing out the essence of feelings expressed. There is an emotional center to the melding of words and music that allows for so many extraordinary contemporary interpretations.

    It feels appropriate, right and true, then, that the umbrella song that graces this compilation is “Music Is Love,” David Crosby’s mantra that evolved into a magical track in collaboration with Graham Nash and Neil Young in the summer of 1970. So go back to where it all began and enjoy these new takes on the music of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young.
