  1. Today on Fresh Air  Graham Nash explains how having Neil Young join Crosby, Stills & Nash made the sound darker and more intense:


It’s more difficult to sing 4 part [harmonies], you’ve got to start shifting parts around and stuff. Neil [Young] brings a darker edge to our music, and I don’t mean that in a negative way… it’s more intense. That first album of Crosby, Stills & Nash is kind of summery, lots of palm trees in it feeling, a cool breeze through the canyons kind of music.
Actually, Jimi Hendrix when asked what he thought of Crosby, Stills & Nash [he] looked at the interviewer and said, ‘That’s Western sky music.’ And I thought, ‘Wow. That’s brilliant.’ The point is that Neil brings a different kind of musical intensity to the band, and the music of Crosby, Stills & Nash and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young is very, very different.

  1. James Wolcott on 1970’s NYC: "This was a time when New York Times editors would sneak off on their lunch hours and go see Deep Throat. When Deep Throat became a sensation, the kind of people who went to [the society  hangout] Elaine’s were going off there. … You had to have an opinion  about it.”
