Formation and Debut
Before starting the trio, David Crosby, Stephen Stills, Graham Nash had found reasonable commercial success as part of other bands like The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield and The Hollies. Stills and Crosby met after Buffalo Springfield disbanded and were later joined by Nash. The trio also collaborated with the multi-instrumentalist, Neil Young for jamming sessions.
Crosby, Stills & Nash signed a recording contract with the Atlantic Records and made their official debut by releasing their self-titled record in 1969. The album turned out to be a top ten record on the Billboard 200 and was eventually certified as Multi-Platinum. The group gained on road success with their iconic live performance at the Woodstock Festival.
Crosby, Stills & Nash released their second studio record, Déjà Vu in 1970 and it hit the top spot on the Billboard 200 chart. A number of headlining shows aided the trio in achieving a widespread success. The record went Multi-Platinum in the US and the group stepped into the golden decade of their career. Their first live album, A Way Street came out in 1971 and it also received multiple Platinum certifications. Their first compilation album, So Far hit the shelves in 1974 and it peaked at one on the Billboard 200. With millions of sales, the album received six Platinum certifications.
Crosby, Stills & Nash released their third studio album, CSN in 1977 and it became their third consecutive Multi-Platinum studio record. Besides their consistent touring, the group continued to release live and compilation albums. The band came up with their fourth studio album, Daylight Again in 1982, five years after their last studio record. The album made its way to the top ten on Billboard 200 and went Platinum. The following album, American Dream came out in 1988 and it also became a Platinum certified record.
