Have tried, but could never really get into them that much. I can listen if they are on the radio, but they're one of those bands I'd never seek out.
Your affirmation ''second fab four'' is interesting.
Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

There have been tons of "second fab four"'s thru the years. Down to each person's opinion and likes. Its like saying the next or new Beatles.

My favorite CSN&Y songs are Our House (which has a Simon & Garfunkel feel to it with a little bit of America thrown in), and Marrakesh Express (wonderful energy and vocal harmonies).
CSN&Y of course spawned the spin-off Y (Neil Young), who since has become a major talent in his own right (though he leaves me unenthused).

And would you please welcome Crosby, Stills and Nash, singing a song from their favorite group:

I used to be a pretty big fan of these guys, but lately their old songs, with their ultra-tight studio harmonies are starting to sound too cloyingly "sweet" for my evolving tastes. And then there's this rendition of the song "Blackbird ," which I don't think is very good at all. Steven Stills is a talented guitar player, but he comes off as under-rehearsed on this. And the harmonies sound underwhelming and "unfocused." And the song works much better with a rhythm, like Paul's tapping foot. Here the melody just meanders around, to no good effect. If you were going to "Teach Your Children" the song "Blackbird ," this wouldn't be the version to use.
