Original photograph with CSN drummer Dallas Taylor superimposed in door by cover designer Gary Burden--also added was record label logo above mail box.

GUEST BLOG / By Henry Diltz, photographer (above)
--"...That photo on the cover of Crosby, Stills & Nash debut album released in 1969 on Atlantic Records that launched them into stardom. 

Henry Diltz.
It spawned two Top 40 hit singles, Marrakesh Express and Suite: Judy Blue Eyes, which peaked respectively at #28 the week of August 23, 1969, and at #21 the week of December 6, 1969, on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. We found an old couch in front of an abandoned house to take this photo. It became their first album cover..."



Album cover cropped image. When photo was taken the group had not
come up with a name so they weren't seated in order
otherwise they could have been called Nash, Stills and Crosby.
