It's time for Into the Groovy to reach back from the 1980's to the 70's. Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young (well, sometimes Young) are a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame supergroup with a slew of classic tunes on their resume. Their 1970 #1 album, Deja Vu, is littered with classic songs, including my favorite, their version of Joni Mitchell's "Woodstock"(#11 on the Billboard Hot 100.) There is a lot to like about the foursome's version. Neil Young's psychedelic guitar play is superb, as are the vocals, both solo and harmony (but you already know how great these guys sing together, don't you? Don't you?) What makes it so Groovy, you ask? Well, has anything ever been Groovier than Woodstock?

Woodstock is the absolute zenith of 60s hippy flower power. There will never, ever be a musical line up like that. The grooviest name ever Wavy Gravy helped pull it together.

Wavy Gravy! I haven't heard that dudes name in years. I was probably five at the time it all happened, but I'm a fan of the whole Summer of Love thing, especially the music.

@teamfreak16 The concert was 1968 and the film 1969. I assume you have seen it?

I'm at that stage in life where I have heard so much about Woodstock that I half believe I was there! I have to remember I was only 13 at the time.

The epitome of Groovy. I remember what Steven Stills said in the movie, just before they started playing. "This is the second time we've ever played in front of people, man. We're scared sxxxless."

They are in an interesting documentary I watched not long ago: Songs from the Canyon, about all the great music to come out of Laurel Canyon in the sixties.

I think they realized that when they tried to "re-create" Woodstock, it just wasn't the same. The original festival was lightning in a bottle, and an attempt to repeat the magic was just going to be wrong.

I heard it wasn't that good, although I read that Nine Inch Nails was pretty entertaining.

College days' flashback! Thank you very much. Such fun listening to Crosby, Stills and Nash, and sometimes Young.

I'm glad you liked it. I have more 70's stuff I've got to work in as well.
