If you're feeling Déjà Vu today, we know why: the landmark album by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young is getting reissued as a deluxe 50th anniversary edition this spring!
David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash made folk rock history with their first self-titled album as a group in 1969; later that year, they added Neil Young to their line-up, performing only their second gig together at the Woodstock Music & Art Fair. This boosted their popularity considerably, and Déjà Vu became an international hit, topping the charts in America, Canada and Australia and reaching the Top 5 around the world. Thanks to hit singles "Our House," "Teach Your Children" and "Woodstock," it remains their best-selling LP.
The deluxe Déjà Vu, hitting stores May 14, is a 4CD/1LP features a wealth of unreleased bonus material alongside the original album on CD and vinyl, including a disc apiece of demos, outtakes and alternate versions. Highlights include unheard versions of "Birds" (recorded by Young for his landmark After the Gold Rush), Crosby's beloved "Almost Cut My Hair" and "Our House," heard in its original demo form as recorded by Stills and Joni Mitchell.
For vinyl lovers, a 5LP edition of the album, pressed on 180-gram vinyl, will be available exclusively through online orders. Both versions come in a 12" x 12" book package, with detailed liner notes by writer/director Cameron Crowe featuring new insight from all four band members.
