Crosby, Stills and Nash

David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash (and occasionally, Neil Young) formed a powerful vocal group in the late 1960s and early 1970s, blending sincere vocals and the California sound with powerful, urgent music that spoke for the generation that was against the Vietnam War and the establishment. By 1977, when this single came out, they were making a comeback as a vocal trio, and "Just a Song Before I Go" hit #7, their highest charting single. The B side, "Dark Star," received considerable airplay on AOR stations, making this a pretty much perfect single.

The picture sleeve highlights three previous albums of CSN (and sometimes Y) and the then current album. This was a good ploy, trying to spark interest in both their current album and their catalog.
