"Stephen Stills is underrated."

Includes audio of the long version of "Bluebird," which I hadn't heard before (and won't listen to again). And I disagree that "Change Partners" is "corny and unappealing". But I agree with this:

He was the driving force behind three of the best (non-Beatles) songs of the 1960s/early 1970s: Bluebird, Wooden Ships, and Suite: Judy Blue Eyes; in the process he anchored two of the major super-groups of that era.  “For What It’s Worth” is one of the most recognizable and oft-used iconic songs of the 1960s.  “Helplessly Hoping” is good too.
