2010 Rhino reissue on 180g Vinyl - David Crosbys 1971 solo debut was a unique eclectic and wilfully expansive album. Musically the album has an exploratory almost jazzy feel with its bright production, cloaking the listener in acoustic strains and lush layered harmonies and sees the cream of early70s California rock assembled with the various celebrities joining together in an organic collective approach thats embodied in the opener the freespirited jam of Music Is Love.

David Crosby's debut solo album, If I Could Only Remember My Name is a one-shot wonder of dreamy but ominous California ambience.
Thanks to his muchpublicized personal travails its easy to overlook the multiple talents that originally made Crosby a star in his days with The Byrds and Crosby Stills and Nash This his first solo effort was recorded in 1971 following Crosby Stills Nash & Youngs Deja Vu and contains some of his most impressive vocal and songwriting work including the haunting Laughing the mantralike Music Is Love and the extended impressionistic Cowboy Movie With guest appearances by such famous friends as Neil Young Joni Mitchell Grace Slick and Jerry Garcia its a fascinating chapter in an alwaysinteresting career thats all too often been overshadowed by headlines Scott Schinder
