The first song I was ever able to sing and play and stand how it sounded. I've seen him in some config or another 10 maybe 15 times. Certainly more than anyone else. It was a standing date with me and my dad as we both love him. I was really sad the last time I saw stills a few years ago he was losing his voice and it was getting worse. I realized it wasnt just being tired or sick when he recorded sounding that way the last few years. I will be ever thankful that me and my dad caught him at the grove in LA at the start of a new tour rested and sounding nearly as good as his 69 roll the tape demo we listed to on the way up. I had to get up and stand at the side as I could not stay seated. It was only months later in csn it seemed the beginning of the end. Every so often I can get on a stills jag that can last a month. Its become a tradition to cruise down the river in my little boat listening to manassas. Turns out my dad came to the same conclusion for boat music with neither of us talking about that album for 20 years. Stills is the greatest singer songwriter ever and the meat in the greatest vocal harmony group ever. CSN 1st album was my 1st favorite album at 5 yrs old and I still stop and listen everytime wooden ships comes on like it's the first. I want that song at my funeral.
