Crosby, Still and Nash - Replay

Listening in Depth


This is another very handy record for setting your Vertical Tracking Angle. The end of Shadow Captain has loud vocals and punchy bass, which are a bit difficult to reproduce. (Forget trying to get this song to sound good if you don’t have an exceptionally good copy.)

The next song is To The Last Whale, which starts with Nash and Crosby's multitracked voices in a big hall. With the correct VTA, their voices should sound silky and sweet. If your arm is too far down in the back, they will get a bit dull. Too high, and they will lose that breathy, "fluffy" quality. And once you get their voices to sound just right, make sure the ending of Shadow Captain is still punchy and dynamic.

More Crosby, Stills, Nash or Young

TRACK LISTING

Side One

Carry On Track Commentary

A crappy remix, with added guitar, ugh.

Marrakesh Express Track Commentary

Nothing special.

Just a Song Before I Go Track Commentary

This song sounds WONDERFUL on the better pressings. One of the best reasons to play this album. It's probably better here than it is on almost any pressing of the album it comes from: CSN.

First Things First Track Commentary

This track tends to be aggressive.

Shadow Captain Track Commentary

This track on the typical pressing of this album will tear your head off. On properly mastered copies, it's surprisingly smooth and sweet, a quality I never associated with this song before, until I played the Hot Stamper.

To the Last Whale Track Commentary

This song also sounds WONDERFUL on the better pressings. Another one of the best reasons to play this album.

Side Two


Love the One You're With Track Commentary

Nice but a little spitty as a rule.

Pre-Road Downs Track Commentary

This track tends to sound dull but sometimes it's magical.

Change Partners Track Commentary

Nothing special, from a nothing special sounding album, Stills' second outing (which usually sounds like cardboard).

I Give You Give Blind Track Commentary

This track can sound quite good on the better pressings, better than almost any pressing of the album it comes from: CSN.

Cathedral Track Commentary

Nice, and, as with some cuts mentioned above, better than almost any pressing of the album it comes from: CSN. (CSN rarely sounds better than mediocre. I sure would like to find a good sounding copy but I have pretty much given up at this point. This compilation has four tracks from CSN and three of them can sound quite a bit better than they do there.)
