Déjà Vu is the second studio album from Crosby,Stills & Nash and the first to include Neil Young in the line up. It was released on March 11th 1970. It was 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. Those achievements are all the more astonishing given the fact that the group barely held together through the estimated 800 hours it took to record Déjà Vu and scarcely functioned as a group for most of that time
The year is 1970 and ‘Van the Man’, Mr. Van Morrison himself is set to play Manhattan’s famous Fillmore East. The venue became known as ‘The Church of Rock and Roll’ and played host to greats like Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin and Crosby Stills Nash & Young. So it was a major coup for little English pub rock band, Brinsley Schwarz’s to be booked as Van’s support act. Brinsley Schwarz were named after their guitarist of the same name. With Nick Lowe on bass and vocals, keyboardist Bob Andrews and drummer Billy Rankin, the band evolved from the 1960s pop band Kippington Lodge. At this time, the band's style was changing from pop into more of a folk-rock band.
On this day in 1966, Neil Young, Stephen Stills and Richie Furay formed Buffalo Springfield in Los Angeles, California. They were among the first wave of American bands to become popular in the wake of the British Invasion. The group combined rock, folk, and country music into a sound all its own. Their million-selling song 'For What It's Worth' became a political anthem for the turbulent late 1960s.
