Crosby, Stills, & Nash - Suite Judy Blue Eyes


Wonderful rendition of a beautiful song. Stephen Stills is absolutely amazing.



Clifford Young
Judy Blue Eyes is our generation's Strauss tone poem.  Steven Stills does things on the guitar that haven't been invented yet and have yet to be discovered.  We are all lucky to be alive to bear witness to such a performance.
Rick Menefee
Oh Yeah, you know these guys are the very best of the best. And Come on now, Steven Stills must be one of the most original genius guitar players / arrangers of all time! Can I get an amen?
Robert Blanchard
Well, I guess...Somehow I am Lucky...Cause I was Blessed to see CSN at Woodstock. I was 16 and just about 4 months shy of joining the Army and going to Vietnam. They saved my life several of times...as I would listen to their music in my head all through my first tour. Suite Judy Blue Eyes was the one I loved the most. If I could stand before Steve Stills today, I would give Him the medels I won in VN. He saved me...Not good luck.
Steven Bolfing
Suite: Judy Blue Eyes - if this is not the best song ever written, then it has to be in the top 10!  I have loved it since it was released, and never tire of it!
Dave West
Stephen Stills is a hugely under-celebrated guitarist. Total virtuoso.
Metal Otaku Banzai
This just makes the bad and stress melt away. Masters making music.. Take notes kids.

Great rendition of one of may favorite songs by CS&N! No need to criticize Crosby or any of them. These guys all understood teamwork, what harmony is all about. Stills is the virtuoso on this one, Nash gives the energy and support, and Crosby just chills and adds his beautiful harmonizing to it all. Nobody trying to surpass anyone else. All of them just making music. Watch the entire concert if you get a chance. You'll see that David Crosby is well involved and giving it his all throughout, in spite of what he may or may not have been on. Just enjoy the great music people. This is wonderful stuff!

Stephen Stills is amazing and always has been. This song is my all-time favorite, and this video is my all-time favorite performance of "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes."
Johnny Botts
Stephen Stills on an acoustic guitar is a site to behold!!
dadgad68
I have no words except two. Pure genius.
Alrighty Then
When he gets to the guitar solo he totally jams the living shit out of it. This guy has got to be one of the greatest guitarists of all time.
Mrs. Hudson
Stills is a genius. End of story. Goodnight everyone.
Steve Struthers
Individually, each of the members of CS&N wouldn't have been quite as successful - not because they weren't good musicians, vocalists or performers, but because together, their voices had an absolutely iconic, definitive sound that none of them could produce on their own. 'Judy Blue Eyes' has always been one of my most favourite songs from the 70s, and one that I associate with a particular time in my childhood.
MattyK USA
If all Stephen had ever written and sung was this one song, he would have still deserved to be in the Hall of Fame. Epic in every way - songwriting, composition, voicing, harmony, performance. A song for the ages.
PeterDad60
Stephen Stills can play that guitar. I like his sound it's my favorite in all the world of guitar playing. This video proves what I thought, it's all Steven Stills in CSN&Y or just CSN.Long May you Rock on.
Frances Dunaway
I am51 yrs old and still remember every word.Please share this music with your children and grandchildren...don't let it fade away!

my first kiss was while listening to this song.
Julie Johnson
<3 <3 <3  This song is medicine.  CSN is a gift.
DEKE RIVERS
David Crosby in His Zombie Drug State ! & Graham Nash Flying on Something Himself, & forgot His Shoes too ! & You get to see what a great Guitar Player Steven Stills is .
Mike Ritter
All of your comments about how great this performance is are spot on. This may be one of the greatest CSN performances ever. However, this trio was not in their prime when this concert was performed. They weren't topping the Billboard as a group like they were in the 70s, and they were entering tough times personally. As we know, Crosby was in the midst of his "Drug Years" and this undoubtedly was a burden for the other two. While you older folks were around when these guys were making the big time, the more I read about these guys, the more I find that life can be hard. It has its ups and downs, its easy to get caught up in success, and it takes you down roads you may not want to go. I think people that might downplay David's drug issue don't exactly understand the toll it took on him, and the pain it caused the others in his life (But I definitely don't understand or know what he went through personally). But that's what I think makes this performance so special. Crosby, Stills, and Nash were able to, for this performance, rise above their personal issues and life struggles and were able to do as Jose Marti said in his fabled poem "Guantanamera": "share the poems of my soul." And its no surprise: the trio's spot-on harmonies, Stills' killer lead guitar abilities, and the overall energy and passion these guys bring to this performance of "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes" is definitely a piece from these guys' souls. Its simply beautiful
Bill Rabara
This song has to be one of the greatest rock songs of all time! I grew up in the 60's...There were MANY great songs. In my book, Suite Judy Blue Eyes tops the list. Beautifully written...Perfect harmonization...And let's face it, Steven Stills must be the greatest acoustical guitarists of the Rock & Roll Era. The more I listen to this song, the better it sounds!
Chad Hurley
"Suite: Judy Blue Eyes" [Intro. (Acoustic Guitar)] It's getting to the point where I'm no fun anymore I am sorry Sometimes it hurts so badly I must cry out loud I am lonely I am yours, you are mine, you are what you are You make it hard Remember what we've said and done and felt about each other Oh, babe have mercy Don't let the past remind us of what we are not now I am not dreaming I am yours, you are mine, you are what you are You make it hard [Instrumental (Acoustic Guitar)] Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh Tearing yourself away from me now you are free And I am crying This does not mean I don't love you I do that's forever Yes and for always I am yours, you are mine, you are what you are You make it hard Something inside is telling me that I've got your secret Are you still listening? Fear is the lock and laughter the key to your heart And I love you I am yours, you are mine, you are what you are You make it hard And you make it hard And you make it hard And you make it hard [Instrumental (Acoustic Guitar)] Friday evening Sunday in the afternoon What have you got to lose? Tuesday morning Please be gone I'm tired of you What have you got to lose? Can I tell it like it is? (Help me I'm sufferin') Listen to me baby It's my heart that's a sufferin' it's a dyin' (Help me I'm dyin') And that's what I have to lose (To lose) I've got an answer I'm going to fly away What have I got to lose? Will you come see me Thursdays and Saturdays? What have you got to lose? [Instrumental (Acoustic Guitar)] Chestnut brown canary Ruby throated sparrow Sing a song, don't be long Thrill me to the marrow [Instrumental (Acoustic Guitar)] Voices of the angels Ring around the moonlight Asking me said she so free How can you catch the sparrow? [Instrumental (Acoustic Guitar)] Lacy lilting lady Losing love lamenting Change my life, make it right Be my lady [Instrumental (Acoustic Guitar)] Doo doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo doo doo Doo doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo Doo doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo doo doo Doo doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo Que linda me la traiga Cuba La reina de la Mar Caribe Cielo sol no tiene sangreahi Y que triste que no puedo vaya oh va, oh va Doo doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo doo doo Doo doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo Doo doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo doo doo Doo doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo Submit Corrections

Stephen Stills kicks ass on that Martin guitar... A beautiful song
Gabby Hayes
This is the best live version I've heard of this classic. All at the peak of their talents. Beautiful song.
Joseph Dungee
"Sweet" Judy Collins!
Rhonda Laffey
“Remember what we’ve said, and done, and felt about each other...” My favorite moment of song, 50-55 seconds in, the exchange between Nash & Crosby is so sweet.
Mick G
Lesson in Harmony. What a song. Thanks for sharing
Jim Lappin
must be one of best songs ever
Mary Robison
words can not describe this performance~genius comes to mind
Cameron Cook
'Don't  get much better then that
Helen Thompson
Does it get better than Stephen? Not! He is musically and vocally gorgeous.
Randy Gardner
Steven Still's is a virtual metronome! Watch him play and everything is precision and kept in time and tempo. I love watching this performance. CS&N would not be right without any one of them but Stills is the absolutely indispensable man.
robbie p
I am so glad this video exists. The performance is incredible. They were dialed in that night.  Stephen Stills guitar playing is so incredible. if there is such a thing as a perfect song, this is it. 
steelyeyedmissileman
Nash over-acting - as usual.
Ignacio Morgenrøde
''Fear is the lock and laughter the key to your heart....'' beautiful song.

three guys one guitar
Terrell L. Moody
This has been my earworm for the past few days and I'm now just a tiny bit obsessed with it. After hearing it sporadically for many years and being rather ambivalent towards it, I now see what I've been missing! Such a wonderful feel to it, with great lyrics ("Don't let the past remind us of what we are not now."). As for this performance: almost perfection! While David looks pained and uncomfortable, Stephen's guitar playing is just incredible and I so love how much Graham is really feeling it and how so many of his movements match up to the beats; I can't take my eyes off him!
Andrew Mantle
Sometimes when I listen to this, I feel an opening to universal love that I can't quite grab, but it is beautiful and shared. Thank you CSN for your giving.
Cheesy Cola
Nash is so awesome. He is ALWAYS so into it.
SamsonCrosswood
Belongs in the all time greatest American songs (of any genre) of all time. Just beautiful, powerful and it just... IS.
Jennifer Johnson
Steven Stills' voice is one of a kind. It just flows out of him so effortlessly! I love it!
krypter
Incredible harmonies, I particularly love Stills voice. Awesome how he hops back and forth baritone and soprano (?)
Christopher Abbott
The Master Steven Stills bravo Crosby hanging on for dear life
Michael D.
Absolutely the most beautiful group ever. I saw them at the Concord Pavillion 15 years after this song was first released. A very young girl was sitting next to my wife and I. The girl had tears in her eyes when this song was played. I remember thinking that she was a baby when the song first came out, and wondered why she was so emotional. Then I realized that the passing years had nothing to do with the emotion. Beauty is timeless.
J Man
how someone as young as he was then write such a beautiful, meaningful, timeless song is beyond me. They nailed it here! I grew up to CSNY. Puts chills up my spine. Thank you for creating such a masterpiece.
Gary H
What an immense talent Steven Stills is.
Stu B
I hope the people in attendance at this show are appreciative of how unfuckingbelievably fortunate they are to have have been there.
Grahame Ferguson
An example of magic that can be performed by 3 voices and a guitar.
Debra Marcus
OMG!  The famous studio version was amazing, but this is on another level.  Outstanding performance by Stephen Stills and CN.  When music was music.....Yeah Rick you can get an AMEN!
mykimikimiky
4:46 THAT moment ... mmm start of forever
Jaime Araque
For what it’s worth, Stills played a superb masterpiece, Nash had us riding along on a Carousel and Crosby managed to send us 8 miles high.
Rikki Dolan
This video is so good, brings tears to my eyes.  
Jack Feldmann
I had no idea how much this song would continue to speak to me throughout my from the time I first heard it up til now. A truly amazing phenomenon! Stills remains musically creative even today!
Vinci336
that's the kind of 60's rock I loved.
Tony Nickoloff
Stephen Stills is why I play guitar the way I do... oh ya and Richie Havens...!
Steve from Texas
My all-time favorite group of their era...
Ridgeback
CSN were amazing vocal harmonisers. and Stills is a musical genius.. This is still one of the greatest musical compositions of all time.
ra nunley
stills does not get enough credit as a guitar player.
Kevin Goins
At 6:08, Stephen be like, "hold up...lemme take a sip.." then jumps back in flawlessly. PRICELESS......
Patty Boda
they are absolutely fabulous! they always make me happy, no matter what!
Vias
Beautiful, truly a classic.
Bev Dziengelewski
Guitar sounding like a sitar!!!!! GENIUS!!!
John Meyer
Please tell Graham Nash to ease up on his body contortions. Love the singing but find it hard to watch. John Meyer
Bill Scott
Crosby can't move . He's on his 3rd liver. !
waterstreet68
Graham Nash looks and sounds absolutely incredible here. He managed to stay so fit and healthy over the years, both in mind and body. I just finished his autobiography, "Wild Tales", which he actually wrote; no ghostwriter. Highly recommended reading for all CSN fans!
Jenn, Intuitive Psychic Medium
My favorite song of ALL TIME.
lucaspenido
I've watched this performance MANY times over the years, through this video on youtube! Thank you for sharing! Amazing!
Devin Tariel
Nash always has that Mike love thing going on but in a good way I guess
Rikk303
I always wander back here to see this. David was not in a good place here but he's bounced back with that richest of voices recently. An acoustic guitar and 3 amazingly rich voices....my backbone goes unnecessary everytime I get the slightest hint of those harmonies.
Pangea1962
Does anyone have any idea from when / where this performance is?  I apologize if it's been asked and answered already.
Rogelio Enriquez
7:30 giving credit to marc anthony and cypress hill for recognizing what a great sample they found
SpongeBoobNipplePants
Graham Nash is and always will be one of my vocal idols, at least when it comes to harmonizing, but videos from the '80s and beyond really remind you how much strain those high harmonies put on your voice!
Lynda Russell
Great song classic
Rich Link
Praise God. I'm Sorry, Lonely !! Have Mercy 11
Aisha Santos
Man he can play that guitar 🎸 wow
Jason Burns
Ah...we were all so much younger when we bought this album. I always wanted the sofa/couch on the front cover. Wonder if it's still around?
Robert Longwill
stills is a great player too
Ridgeback
Greatest composers of folk rock at the time. Maestros is an understatement.. Especially Stills.. Suite Judy Blue Eyes was a musical masterpiece that the young generation of today only wish in their dreams they could emulate..
Gary H
Crosby's eyes were smiling after the guitar solo.....possibly his mouth too.
Janet Jankowski
Thank you Andrew. Wow they sound even better than before. It was kind of cute watching Nash run around bare foot. .
roger peet
Very classic song. It's nice to see a young looking Graham Nash. Steven Stills is Rock God like. That was a nice wax figure of David Crosby. You could see the hot lights melting him.
Silas Fatchett
Put the voices of Stills and Nash together and it's extraordinary. Add Crosby's voice and it becomes sublime.
Timothy Wade
All these years gone bye, and I still absolutely love the harmonies of CSN, something woven into the fabric of my heart that I'll not soon forget !
Dennis G.
To all the guitar players, Stills' guitar tuning is EEEEBE.
Skeeter Skeezicks
Where and when? Looks like early 90's? Really love this version. Stephen Stills will ALWAYS be the man!
Madeline Musilek
