Crosby had been asked to leave The Byrds in late , and Stills' band Buffalo Springfield had broken up in early ; Nash left his band The Hollies in December, and by early the trio had signed a recording contract with Atlantic Records. In order to tour the album, the trio hired drummer Dallas Taylor and session bassist Greg Reeves , though they still needed a keyboardist; Ahmet Ertegun suggested Neil Young , who had played with Stills in Buffalo Springfield, and after some initial reluctance, the trio agreed, signing him on as a full member. Four singles were released from the album including " Woodstock " [ 11], " Teach Your Children " [ 16], and " Our House " [ 30]. The group's second tour, which produced the live double album 4 Way Street , was fraught with arguments between Young and Taylor, which resulted in Taylor being replaced by John Barbata , and tensions with Stills, which resulted in his being temporarily dismissed from the band.

CSN's self-titled debut album is one of the true masterpieces of the rock 'n' roll canon, and 's Daylight Again is a brilliant portrait of their musical evolution.
