Daylight Again [Expanded Edition]

Although Crosby, Stills & Nash had, in effect, been together for well over a decade when Daylight Again (1982) was issued, it was only their third studio long-player of concurrently new material. Initially, the project began as a collaborative effort between Stephen Stills (guitar/banjo/keyboards/percussion/vocals) and Graham Nash (guitar/keyboards/percussion/vocals), as David Crosby was descending into a self-induced state of perpetual drug dependency. However, Crosby was included, although arguably in name alone, and his hauntingly lyrical "Delta" stands as one of his finest contributions. Perhaps the most telling element in the trio's state of affairs was the addition of the Eagles' Timothy B. Schmit and CSN bandmember Mike Finnigan (keyboards/vocals) on vocals throughout. Despite that obvious setback, the other two primary namesakes supply some genuine and uniformly excellent material to the proceedings. Among the most notable are Nash's "Wasted on the Way" -- which was lyrically an ode to the status of the group's union -- and Stills' collaboration with the Curtis Brothers on "Southern Cross." Both were extracted as singles and became among the best-known tracks not only on Daylight Again, but also in the post-'60s CSN canon. The disc also includes a few thoroughly affective ballads such as "Song for Susan" -- which Nash wrote for his spouse -- and Stills' equally emotive "You Are Alive." By contrast, the album's opener, "Turn Your Back on Love," as well as "Too Much Love to Hide" and "Since I Met You" are all up-tempo, full-throttle rockers co-composed by Stills, and include some of the guitarist's most blistering fretwork under the CSN moniker. The disc concludes with Stills' lone solo composition on the album -- a two-part track marrying the newly penned Civil War elegy to a chorus of the 1970 anthem "Find the Cost of Freedom." Again, Crosby's absence is noted with the incorporation of Art Garfunkel's vocals where Crosby's should have been. Daylight Again is by no means as insipid as their next studio effort, Live It Up (1990). In the wake of their eponymously titled debut and the CSN (1977) follow-up, there is a notable change in the direction and quality of material. [In 2006, Atlantic/Rhino reissued Daylight Again with remastered sound, new liner notes, and four bonus tracks: "Raise a Voice," "Feel Your Love," "Tomorrow Is Another Day," and a demo of "Might as Well Have a Good Time."]
