  1. The reunion of the talents of Crosby, Stills and Nash and Neil Young as the fourth element in the formula gave as a result this masterpiece in 1970. If the debut album of the supertrio had caused sensation with its nice combination of folk-pop and gorgeous vocal harmonies, the inclusion of the former Stills´ mate in Buffalo Springfield, bassist Greg Reeves and Dallas Taylor on the drums to strengthen the band in the live shows of 1969 supposed a leap ahead to a more direct, powerful and rocker sound for the band, with Young contributing not only with his singer and writter abilities, but with the nerve and energy of his guitar, which gives more consistence to the sound of the band, counter-balancing Nash´s tendency to the excess of mellowness and making the band move with agility across a wide range of styles: folk (the austere "4+20" by Stills), country (the unforgettable "Teach Your Children" by Nash, with its beutiful harmonies and Jerry Garcia´s pedal steel guitar collaboration, or the evocative Young´s ballad "Helpless), pop ("Our House", Nash´s mellow number), quasi- progressive psiquedelia (the opening track "Carry On", Crosby´s "Déjà Vu", with John Sebastian as guest star on the harmonica or Young´s mini-suite "Country Girl), and powerful guitar rock ("Almost Cut My Hair", Crosby´s self -afirmative hymn, with its magnificent duel of Still and Young´s guitars; "Woodstock" awesome cover on Joni Mitchel´s hippy anthem or the closing track "Everybody I Love You"). A great clasic from a big reunion of excelent musicians.

    Stoner Music???

    You´re right, Edna. Approximately 95% of the spanish stoners smoke hashish. If you can get some good "María" here, you become "the king of the party" automatically. Spanish people don´t apreciate the "tortilla" the way it deserves. It´s a big apportation to the universal culture! By the way, can anybody explain to me if being "stoned" and being "high" is the same thing? I´ve read somewhere that if you smoke hashish, you get stoned and if you smoke pot, you get high...

    Stoner Music???

    We use the word "Kif", wich comes from the arab spoken in Morocco, here in Spain too, though other words are much more popular: "costo", "chocolate" (for hashish) and "grifa", "hierba" or "maría" (for marijuana). The smokers are "porretas" (A "porro" is a joint) or "fumetas" fumar = to smoke).

    25 Albums that Killed Rock N Roll

    It seems that making Rock grow or become mature are synonymous for "killing" it for the authors. I suppose they´d be happy if Time had stopped its running and we were still in the 50´s.
  15. The Kinks really deserve to have one of their great songs in the Top and Waterloo Sunset is one of the finest pop songs ever. It may seem I have nominated it because Old 55 has mentioned it, but, in fact, it was my proposition for this week.
  16. Wasn´t Born To Follow - Byrds Waterloo Sunset - Kinks
  17. 1. The Return of The Grievous Angel - Gram Parsons 2. Peaceful Easy Feeling - Eagles 3. Dead Flowers - Rolling Stones 4. Powderfinger -Neil Young 5. Proud Mary - CCR 6. Dear Mr. Fantasy - Traffic 7. Born To Be Wild - Steppenwolf 8. Bad Company - Bad Company 9. Hush - Deep Purple 10. Suite: Judy Blue Eyes - CS&N
  18. Two Country Rock gems for this week: The Return Of The Grievous Angel - Gram Parsons Peaceful Easy Feeling - Eagles
  19. 1.Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd 2.Sympathy For The Devil - The Stones 3.Epitaph - King Crimson 4.Budapest - Jethro Tull 5.Crossroads - Cream 6.Almost Cut My Hair - CSN & Y 7.Simple Man - Lynyrd Skynyrd 8.Mr. Soul - Buffalo Springfield 9. Africa - Toto 10. Let It Ride - BTO
  20. For the so well expressed reasons in the posts above, my opinion is that the top-ten and the two nominations are O.K. No need to change!
  21. There´s flute in this one, Old 55. Hope that deserves a vote!
  22. For week three: Epitaph - King Crimson Budapest - Jethro Tull (Anderson Strikes again)
  23. A lot of great songs to choose, so it´s been a hard decision, but here are my ten: 1 Gimme Danger, Little Stranger - Iggy & The Stooges 2 Creep - Stone Temple Pilots 3 Gimme Shelter - Rolling Stones 4 The Weight - The Band 5 Me & Bobby Mcgee- Janis 6 Aqualung - Jethro Tull 7 Just Like A Woman - Dylan 8 Jessica - Allman Bros 9 Roadhouse Blues- Doors 10 Tupelo Honey- Van Morrison
