A 2-disc / 36-page booklet deluxe set. 27 artists, 27 songs. A tribute to the outstanding body of work produced by Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. A benefit for the Equestrian Therapy Co-op* in Brandeis, California. *Equestrian Therapy is horseback riding for children and adults who can personally benefit from a natural encounter with horses. By combining horsemanship with concepts of physical and occupational therapy, Equestrian Therapy Co-Op programme promotes balance, coordination, focus and self-confidence in children and adults with special needs.
Like all of the musicians on this album, producers Peter Holmstedt, Ermanno Labianca, Francesco Lucarelli grew up deeply affected by the music of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. Perhaps it was even deeper for them as Europeans, because America was only a place they dreamed of, a far-off romantic world that they tried to understand, and music, movies and books were the among the ways they discovered it. This album is their little effort to thank the four men who opened up that world to them, and made it sing in harmony for more than forty years. Heartfelt thanks go also to all of the artists and bands — most of them good friends of them — who are part of their larger musical world.
