Another best part on this list is Deja Vu, which was originally released in 1970 as Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young’s first album as a quartet. It was definitely one of the most highly anticipated albums at the time, and now, it’s being reissued in celebration of the quartet’s 50th Anniversary. The new edition features 38 never-been-issued tracks in the form of previously unreleased session recordings, outtakes, and demos. Isn’t that just exciting?
