David Crosby

It’s a good time to be David Crosby. The two-time Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee is experiencing an unprecedented surge not only in prolificacy, but in creativity.

I like that stuff.” The album opens with the intoxicating “She’s Got To Be Somewhere,” –Crosby and a nine-piece band premiered the track via the Tonight Show earlier this year - which sounds like a lost Steely Dan cut complete with sturdy horns, bending guitar notes and lilting melodies

Grateful Dead: American Beauty: 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition

Read "American Beauty: 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette


If it's true the Grateful Dead epitomize the counter culture of the Sixties, it's also true the iconic group embraced the following decade on its very own terms, at least at the outset of the period.
