The 55th anniversary of Crosby, Stills, and Nash's self-titled debut album is being celebrated by the syndicated radio show In The Studio With Redbeard: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands.

As its imminent release approached in late May 1969, and contrary to conventional wisdom, I feel compelled to point out that the debut album from Crosby, Stills, and Nash was not heralded as coming from a "supergroup" (arguably that term was first used by a Time magazine reporter who coined it to describe Blind Faith's pairing of ex- Cream Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker with Traffic's Steve Winwood later that same summer).

Nothing more, nothing less. I think most of us have experienced or even endured this nasty feeling, so much so that it turns into hate. Well, it's exactly that. While some might say this song is a bit cliché, I embraced the sentimentality. (continue)
