So much timeless music came out in and around the year 1969, and one of the seminal albums, for both its innovative sound, character and quality, was the first Crosby, Stills & Nash release. Looking back at the cover, I can only wonder if I was ever so young, and if I didn’t have the pictures to prove it, I may have dismissed those years as nothing more then a dream.

So ... I could talk about the groups these amazing artists sprang from, but you all know those stories. Or I could talk about the splendid harmonies, guitar playing, and the return to the Americana music sound, but it would be much more pleasant to listen to them, then to read my words. Of course, I could always speak of the times, or the counter culture, but all of that is the stuff of history at this juncture. So where does that leave us at this point ... why with me, and the effect this album had on my life.

I had just landed in Vietnam when I finally got myself a copy of this album, thought I didn’t need one, as it was playing from record players and reel to reel tape machines from every hootch ... at times the whole Base was awash in the sounds of Crosby, Stills & Nash. With this release, the world was finally to came to terms with the mighty ‘Air Guitar,’ and though it was not a very feminine, or a girlie thing to do ... you guys have NEVER experienced ‘Air Guitar’ until you have seen a woman in olive drab BDU’s [Battle Dress Uniform], left foot on her camouflaged helmet, wailing away, using a fully automatic M16 [with the safety in the ‘On’ position] as a guitar, with the music blasting to the max ... that was the one good thing about being in Vietnam, there weren’t alot of people to disturb ... and I was the undisputed champion of the ‘Air Guitar’ for the entire 44th Medical Unit. I was lightening fast on the draw, I had the power chords down, I could reel back and bow forward with my head almost touching my knees, I had blisters on my fingers, and a smile on my face ... of course we all scrambled when we heard the feedback from the rotors, as a line of choppers were circling to touch down.

But even in the OR, some kind soul had made a tape mix of songs which always included, “Guinnevere,” “Wooden Ships,” “Lady Of The Island,” and of course “Helplessly Hoping,” ... I can still taste the tears from that song, as they inched their way down my cheeks, leaving tiny trails in the red dust that covered my face.
