1971 saw Stephen Stills release the follow-up to his fantastic debut album. Although it did not fare as well on the charts, it was arguably just as good as its predecessor, featuring a similar mix of rock, folk and more. Its strength lied in the splendid production, the arrangements, and its use of brilliant musicians. These included Fuzzy Samuels on bass, Dallas Taylor on drums, and Paul Harris, Dr John and Billy Preston on keyboards. Stills himself played guitar, keyboards and bass, and the album really showcased him as a very talented and versatile singer. There were also brief guitar cameos from Eric Clapton, Nils Lofgren and Jerry Garcia (who also played pedal steel).
