Crosby, Stills and Nash

The enduring charm, contemporary relevance, and harmonic convergence of Crosby, Stills & Nash's fabled self-titled debut owe not only to impeccably played songs and resonant lyrics, but to career-defining performances by music's first genuine supergroup. Crosby, Stills & Nash lingers as an example of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts. Factor in phenomenal studio production and acoustic-based architecture that served as guideposts for myriad albums that followed, and popular music would never be the same.

Given the somewhat iconic status of this album there is plenty of discussion about the 'best' mastering's out there on the interweb. For example, to this day, Joe Gastwirt’s remastering from 1993 remains very well supported.

I have by no means heard them all but have tended to being underwhelmed by the sound, particularly digitally, of this album over the years.

This version is mastered by Shawn R. Britton and is done in his signature style. It sounds very good too, though on occasions a little too bright in the upper registers for mine.

All in all, though, it is very natural sounding and on average fuller sounding than has been my previous digital experience.

It is Certainly the best I've heard this album, though there is unlikely to ever be a definitive mastering.

If you are a fan of the album, it is certainly worth the coin.
