    Desert Island Material

    I discovered CSNY's Déjà vu and weed at the same time in my senior year of high school, when these four guys were reaching their creative zenith. Their power, intensity and passion in the early 70's was about at the peak of music as I knew it. I think I recognized (déjà vu) right then that these men and their friends would be the soundtrack of my life. As I systematically collected all I could get my hands on of C's, S's, N's & Y's material over the next several years, I find that Steve Stills Manassas double album (along with Crosby's "If I Could Only Remember My Name", Dave Mason's "Alone Together" and the New Riders of the Purple Sage's "NRPS") has withstood the test of almost 30 years of replay on my turntables, cassette decks and cd-players, and these four albums are at the top of my Desert Island Scenario. I was always a fan of what the Lords of Rolling Stone dubbed "country-rock", so I was thrilled with the sound of "The Wilderness" (section 2 of this album) coming from one of my rock'n'roll heroes. But if I had to pick only one "side" of this multi-faceted lp as my favorite, it would be "Consider"......no, wait, it would be "Rock & Roll is Here to Stay".....no, wait, I have to have it ALL! The hair on the back of my neck still prickles when I hear Stills on the wah-wah pedal (The Love Gangster, The Treasure), even though I know every note of every song by heart. Every man on this lp is a consummate professional, and the combination of talent became a force all its own, exceeding the individual efforts. Interesting that the liner notes say, "In Tribute: Jimi Hendrix-Al Wilson-Duane Allman". For me, this music still sparkles, it's "the treasure of the one-ness, that like sand becomes a diamond before the wind".....thru the years I've fantasized about being Stills' "gypsy woman, deepest in the world", I've always been intrigued by Capricorns. I've invested in a spare cd of this one, that I put away without even opening. It is beyond my comprehension why no classic rock stations give airplay to any of the songs on this album. This one will be a lifelong companion for me.

    Stephen Stills greatest album and a country rock classic

    If you like seventies country rock you really ought to own this album. This is one of the very best albums made by any of the members of CSN&Y outside of that collaboration. It is a shame that the band that created Manassas didn't stay together longer, but it is hard to imagine them improving on this album even if they had.

    A must have if you ever enjoyed CSN&Y. Good flow start to finish. No cuts you'll skip. Not acid rock

    5 Stars is too few

    Manassas wasn't so much a band as Stephen Stills playing with some of the most talented musicians rock music has ever seen. Many reviewers have said that it would have been a better single album (the single CD was origionally 2 vinal disks), but taking even one song away would completely upset the balance Stills has created on the album. Manassas was a group of very tight musicians who never miss a beat and never play or sing off-key. Stills' songwriting is up to, and even surpasses, the standard he set in CS&N. Anyone who likes CS&N or the Buffalo Springfield would love this album. There are the classic acoustic ballads (''So Begins the Task'', ''Johnny's Garden'') as well as the rocking electric numbers (''Song of Love'', ''It Doesn't Matter''). One of the most remarkable things about this album is the variety of songs and styles on it. There's rock, folk, country, latin, electric and acoustic blues, psycadelica, and everything in between. The entire first side of the album is like one medley - there are no pauses between the tracks. Also inherent in the music are the very distinctive Stephen Stills/Chris Hillman harmonies, which sound a lot like the Byrds'. This is one of those lost gems from the early seventies that should not be passed up no matter what.
