“Suite: Judy Blue Eyes”

This suite of short songs was written as a tribute to Stephen Stills’ singer-songwriter girlfriend, Judy Collins. She was famous for her piercing blue eyes and he was head-over-heels for her, but she broke his heart when she left him for Stacy Keach, her co-star in a musical she was doing at the New York Shakespeare Festival. The band originally formed to record this suite but ended up staying together to create more music.
