March 11: Déjà Vu (Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young album) released in 1970
One of the most hotly awaited second albums in history — right up there with those by the Beatles and the Band — Déjà Vu lived up to its expectations and rose to number one on the charts.

“My girlfriend had been killed in a car crash and the only place I could exist was in the studio, Garcia would come every night. The Airplane and the Dead were recording in the same complex… They were all buddies of mine…” – David Crosby about the recording of his masterpiece (Mojo)
Rolling Stone Magazine put it at number 37 of the “Greatest Stoner Albums” and said: “Like a super-stoned campfire jam with an A-list of Cali hippie-rockers – including Joni Mitchell and most of the Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, and CSNY – this hazy solo project by the altered-consciousness overachiever sounds like it was pretty much made up on the spot. See the toasted strum-fest “Music Is Love” (with Neil Young on congas!) and “Tamalpais High,” with Jerry Garcia and Jorma Kaukonen noodling around wordless Crosby-Nash harmonies. By the time it’s over, you may not remember your name, either.”
I believe a couple of Santana and Quicksilver Messenger Service members also visited.
David Crosby – Cowboy Movie (Live, Jan 31, 2014) a very fine version! :
