Today marks the 50th anniversary of the release of Crosby, Stills & Nash. The supergroup's debut album includes such classics as "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes," "Helplessly Hoping" and "Marrakesh Express."
The union of David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash combined artists whose résumés included The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield and The Hollies.
The album that Rolling Stone called at the time "an eminently playable record" has gone 4X platinum, with sales in excess of 4.2 million copies.
