I’ve listened to David Crosby for a longtime from his beginning with The Byrds (1964-1967, 1972-1973), through his time with probably the first supergroup Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young (1968-1970, 1973, 1974, 1976-2016) and into his solo career and partnership with Graham (Crosby & Nash) 1971 to present.
Some of songs you’ll remember he either wrote or co-wrote are “Lady Friend,” “Why,” Eight Miles High,” “Guinevere,” “Wooden Ships,” “Almost Cut My Hair,” and “Deja Vu,” just to name a few.
The new documentary David Crosby: Remember My Name explores the good times and the bad times.
As the accompanying press release says, “With unflinching honesty, self-examination, regret, fear, exuberance and an unshakable belief in family and the transformative nature of music, Crosby shares his often-challenging journey with humor and bite.”
Some other special features include “Mama Cass’s Swimming Pool” — along with photographer Henry Diltz, Crosby shares memories from days spent at Cass Elliot’s swimming pool and “Seeing John Coltrane” — Crosby recalls a chance encounter with one of his heroes.
Don’t miss this one.
