The liner notes to this 2006 ‘Expanded & Remastered HDCD Edition’ of CSN’s monumental 1969 debut album opens with an Introduction from Ahmet Ertegun – founder and owner of the mighty Atlantic Records. It describes the first time he heard the tapes by ex Hollies man Graham Nash who had linked up with ex Byrd’s tunesmith David Crosby and Buffalo Springfield’s guitarist and songwriter Stephen Stills. The canny Record Man was stunned and knew something huge was happening. He quotes “Crosby, Stills & Nash immediately became my No. 1 project…” And even now – in the twilight months of 2015 – a full 46 years after the event – their opening salvo is ‘so’ damn good – a melodious masterpiece still casting a harmony-vocal shadow over today’s myriad musical landscape. Here are the helplessly hoping details of three men on a sofa…
UK released January 2006 – “Crosby, Stills & Young: Expanded & Remastered HDCD Edition” by CROSBY, STILLS & NASH on Atlantic/Rhino-8122-73290-2 (Barcode 081227329020) offers you the 10-track album newly remastered and with 4 bonus tracks. It pans out as follows (53:17 minutes):
1. Suite: Judy Blue Eyes
2. Marrakesh Express
4. You Don’t Have To Cry
5. Pre-Road Downs
6. Wooden Ships [Side 2]
7. Lady Of The Island
8. Helplessly Hoping
9. Long Time Gone
10. 49 Bye-Byes
Tracks 1 to 10 are their debut studio album “Crosby, Stills & Nash” – released June 1969 in the USA on Atlantic SD-8229 and in the UK on Atlantic 588 189. It rose to No. 6 and No. 25 on the US and UK charts. David Crosby wrote 3 and 9 – Stephen Stills wrote 1, 4, 8, and 10 – Graham Nash wrote 2, 5 and 7. “Wooden Ships” is a co-write between David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Paul Kantner (of Jefferson Airplane).
11. Do For The Others [Stephen Stills song]
12. Song With No Words (New Remix) [David Crosby song]
13. Everybody’s Talkin’ [cover version of a Fred Neil song]
14. Teach Your Children [Graham Nash song]
The 16-page booklet is tastefully substantial – the gatefold lyric insert that came with original 1969 vinyl albums has been fully reproduced, there’s a detailed and informed essay on the album by DAVID WILD which includes quotes from the trio and reissue credits. They’ve even included the lyrics to the four bonuses. The centre pages have a gorgeous colour photo the harmonious trio wrapped up in furs. But the big news is the fantastic new Remaster. JOHN NOWLAND (who was involved in the highly praised first four Neil Young remasters) has used the original 2-and-8 track analogue master tapes and transferred them to HDCD (High Density Compatible Digital). It’s a better form of Remaster and HDCD do not require any kind of special player. STANLEY JOHNSON and GREG HAYES were also involved in the transfers with the Mastering done by the vastly experienced BERNIE GRUNDMAN. The results are the best I’ve ever heard this album sound (odd they haven’t followed this release up with a similar HDCD version of “Déjà Vu”?)
Right from opening Acoustic Guitars of “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes” (written about Judy Collins) and when those magical three voices blend – you realise you’re in the presence of something very special. Although the song is 7:24 minutes long and even includes a Spanish chant-and-dance break – it never seems to overstay its welcome. Having listening to this opener for over four and half decades on various vinyl originals (UK plum labels included) – the Audio achieved here is truly breathtaking. Graham Nash’s chipper “Marrakesh Express” was the first 45 off the album coupled with “Helplessly Hoping” on both sides of the pond in July 1969 (Atlantic 584 283 in the UK, Atlantic 2652 in the USA) – it hit 28 in the USA and 17 in the UK. It’s followed by the stunning ethereal beauty of “Guinnevere” sashaying into your living room with a softly plucked Acoustic. Then you get hit with the full harmonious power and beauty of those three voices as a wall of one. When the trio first got together in Joni Mitchell’s house – they noticed the ‘timber’ of the combo – and this song more than any highlights that magic. As if that’s not good enough – you get the ‘life on the road’ cautionary tale of “You Don’t Have To Cry” where that Stephen Stills tuneful song magic kicks you in the nuts. Fabulous guitar pings, their voices and those words – “…you are living a reality I left years ago…it quite nearly killed me…” Side 1 ends with Graham Nash’s “Pre-Road Downs” – a treated guitar gives us another touring-is-miserable song about missing the touch and presence of his ladylove.
“Wooden Ships” would turn up on the Jefferson Airplane album “Volunteers” in November of 1969 (it was a co-write with Paul Kantner) and I’ve always loved both versions – a strange hybrid of Soulful Rock that seemed to belong to California in 1969. CSN’s original take is shorter and amps up the Guitar and Organ and once again the Remaster is gorgeous. The bass and rhythm section is so warm and sweet but it’s the Stills vocal followed by Crosby and back again that impresses – beautifully handled in the transfer. “Lady Of The Island” is tender and quiet and Nash’s vocals almost aching with his love (written for Joni Mitchell). “…Letting myself wander through the world in your eyes…” he sings – and it’s beautifully poignant. That harmony magic comes marauding through your speakers once again (but in the best possible way) with “Helplessly Hoping” – a stunning three-part harmony and probably the best Audio on the disc. Although from the pen of David Crosby – the slinky “Long Time Gone” nonetheless has Still’s arrangement and production magic all over it – lifting the song into a CSN recording rather than a solo stab. It ends on “49 Bye-Byes” which always seems to get overlooked – but it has magic in it too – especially in that centre passage where all those melodies on the guitars and vocals build up.
The album was recorded straight (what you see is what you get) so technically there are no outtakes from the sessions per say – but the group continued recording that year and the four bonus tracks come from those sessions. “Do For The Others” would eventually show on “Stephen Stills” – his debut solo album from late 1970. The second it opens – you can hear why its been included on this Expanded CD Edition – not only is this song gorgeous to listen too – it’s beautifully recorded – essentially a Demo with Stills on Lead Guitar while the other two harmonise. It’s a genuine wow. Second up is another harmony winner in “Song With No Words” where they “dah dah” the melody that would eventually appear on David Crosby’s magnificent “If I Could Only Remember My Name” debut solo album in 1971. Truly beautiful is the only way to describe the Trio doing Fred Neil’s classic “Everybody’s Talkin'” made famous by Nilsson’s cover as used in the movie “Midnight Cowboy”. Crosby describes it in the liner notes as “Stills at his best…” There’s a demo of the “Déjà Vu” classic “Teach Your Children” which is nice but nothing as good as the magical trio that preceded it. Fans will know that there are five other ‘outtakes’ from the period on the “Carry On” 4CD Box Set (1991) – one day we might get a Deluxe Edition 2CD set covering the event in its entirety…helplessly hoping…
So there you have – an established 60ts nugget – cool and beautiful like a summer breeze and given a truly beautiful audio makeover. It’s even furnished and burnished in Aldershot Sun with Bonus Tracks actually worthy of the moniker.
“…Going to where the sun keeps shining… ” – Stephen Stills sings on their gorgeous harmony vocal cover of “Everybody’s Talkin'”. I’d travel towards this slice of sunshine if I were you…warm on your soul and your mind…and then some…
Finally, I decided to splurge on one and considered disposable types until these dearer. I was afraid to buy that bad given the amount of money you have to invest. A hundred dollars or for a unit against 99 cents for a toothbrush to Reach. Let us not forget how expensive the toothbrush replacement itself heads are a major investment. Initially, I considered the Oral-B because she looked like the round instrument cleaning head dentist, but the comments redirect me to the Sonicare.
My first use of HX6711/02 was rather frightening. The simple force of the brush tooth wants to take a Jackhammer to my teeth! I’m sure I’ve done too much pressure and was not at all used to the brush. Regardless, the end result was beautiful! Clean, as coming from the dentist, and I felt as if I didn’t need to use silk.
The Quadpacer feature is great and made me realize that I had meetings more brushing with a regular toothbrush and it has not yet got my own teeth as a Sonicare because my certainly felt teeth grungy at the end of the day with a regular toothbrush. Still, teeth cleaned by this Sonicare felt reasonably clean just before sunset when I had to brush my teeth again.
The 30 additional seconds for teeth whitening are a good measure to get your additional teeth clean on the front, which easily begins to develop plaque on the gums at the end of day. Like others, I wish it would start again in the same mode come next brushing session, but by pressing the button twice for teeth whitening mode every time is no complaint wholesale.
The device comes with the Pro brush head. Replacement heads, I bought were the DiamondClean variety. Both give a good brushing, but my gums seem to feel as we get a better massage with head Pro, but also gets between the teeth easier.
I can’t compare this to other units as it is my first electric toothbrush, but I think that this model has the best bang for the buck because you can easily find it for less than a hundred dollars. Glad I made the switch and excited what the new models will be like in 5 years when I need to shop for another unit.

Zadro UV Toothbrush Sanitizer Blue
Nice to feel secure with the form of critters,
This product does what it is supposed to.
I recently bought a brush with very expensive teeth simply because it had UV disinfection in its storage unit. UV failed the second use and a replacement bulb was $50 online, so I searched high and low for something a little less expensive. I found this on Amazon. The price of the unit was about $10, so I took a risk, because I know that UV kills bacteria and other bugs. I used it to disinfect a pool and a whirlpool in the past.
Product arrived quickly and well packaged. It's incredibly simple, and sometimes this is the best design. This sounds like a travel toothbrush case and could double as one. It will accommodate almost any toothbrush manual and easily accepted the brush of my electric head. It is easy-dead. Brush your teeth as usual, rinse and slightly dry brush, then it pop in the case and snap it shut. The UV lights for five minutes and then stops automatically. Thats all. I am the product in the corner behind my toothbrush charger and it is quite discreet.
I can't praise this product enough. It is simple, well done and usable. If he dies, and I do not know that it will be at any given time, I can replace the whole thing for a pittance. I just bought a couple more for the members of the family. Hey, any method to get a head start on germs is fine with me.
Very good product!
I bought two of them. They work great to keep your toothbrushes sanitized households. I have not had a cold or been sick since I these. I've heard that if you don't keep your own toothbrush you can catch colds with other members of the household, if they are all kept reconciled in the traditional door-brush. I change brushes your teeth about every 2 to 3 months and always use the Sanitizer when I finished brushing.
Operated's work for my Oral-B Toothbrush battery,
I was looking for a case of toothbrush and disinfectant for my battery operated toothbrush Oral-B. I read some comments and haven't found much about electric brushes installation of this product. I decided that it seemed like it was big enough and decided to try it. It fits very well. I think any brush fits in this case. The small rubber part that holds the brush seems to be robust and accommodating necks of different size.
It does what it is supposed to do. My toothbrush is feeling really clean.
1. after brushing your teeth, wash your toothbrush correctly, ensuring that there is no residue of toothpaste.
2. dry your toothbrush with paper towels before placing it in the case of disinfection.
3 remove the batteries after sterilization.
Now, this may seem tedious, but it's really not. It is personal hygiene. There may be any shortcuts.

It changed my life! You have to,
the 4-hour workweek
I love this book the 4-hour workweek and it has changed my life. If you love this book the 4-hour workweek and this review is helpful, click yes so we can get a good review on the 1st page.
Sounds to me like some reviewers expect too much out of the book. It’s not magic. Tim shows how he works a 4-hour workweek and the steps that you can take to follow his lead and do the same thing. He also references all the books that led him to where he is so that you can read them also and get a better understanding of the concepts. He puts the whole process together and shows us how he did it. He tells you the whole process of actually how to do it. There are plenty of websites out there created by readers of this book whose lives have been changed just by reading this book. It really gets you thinking. If you are not an entrepreneur then ya it’s not a good book for you because you do need to have your own ideas. It’s very inspirational.
The people that are giving the book the 4-hour workweek bad reviews are just not the entrepreneur type and thats OK. You can tell because of their comments like “it’s not realistic”. It’s very realistic and there are plenty of websites and blogs full of people, right now, making it happen in their life right now and talking freely about it.
Don’t buy this book the 4-hour workweek if you don’t want to take the time to come up with some of your own ideas about the type of business you would have.
Don’t buy the book the 4-hour workweek if you don’t believe that is is possible to make more money and work less hours.
This book the 4-hour workweek was the spark I needed to get the flame going!

Heading off to college in the fall, just received my Sabre Red Police Strength Pepper Spray and I love it!,
Let me quickly address a few things other people have mentioned in their reviews:
-The safety lock. I just got this half an hour ago and haven’t actually tried carrying it around in my purse, but I’ve heard that the safety mechanism easily slides from “locked” to “unlocked/firing position” when it’s being carried around. Sabre Red Police Strength Pepper Spray is definitely not childproof because the mechanism only slides from side to side, there’s no extra step in the unlocking process to guard against curious children. There is a little bump in the “lock” area that helps a little, but on the whole you should still be really careful when throwing this in with other things. I would suggest using a very small piece of tape to anchor the slide mechanism to the locked section, but make sure you can still push it to the unlocked position with relative ease.
Sabre Red Police Strength Pepper Spray is small, easy to hold and doesn’t look like a weapon.With this I agree completely. The container is about 1 inch in diameter and as long as your palm. My hands are a bit small and I definitely have no problem holding it. Sabre Red Police Strength Pepper Spray is a lightweight and like other reviewers have said, the pink color doesn’t make it look like a weapon to begin with, which can be essential when you first whip it out. Disguised weapons are always effective!
Sabre Red Police Strength Pepper Spray has an expiration date. If you didn’t know, pepper spray does not last forever. They seem to have a shelf life of roughly 5 years.Sabre Red Police Strength Pepper Spray has the date printed on a white label visible in the pictures, so the reminder is always there for you to see. If you live in a dangerous area or if you want to be constantly protected, do order Sabre Red Police Strength Pepper Spray when the old one expires.
-And of course, unless you already know very well how to operate Sabre Red Police Strength Pepper Spray, READ THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY. The package tells you how to operate it, where exactly to spray, and perhaps most importantly, WHAT TO DO IF YOU GET SPRAYED. It’s important–read it and commit it to memory!

The View from Up Top,
gopro hero3 black edition
First off, I wish GoPro had included instructions on how to free the gopro hero3 black edition from its diabolical puzzle box packaging.This gopro hero3 black edition camera presents a very different type of photography than I’m used to (namely, wearing the gopro hero3 black edition camera rather than holding it). And, unfortunately, the weather hasn’t cooperated in terms of field testing. Apologies aside, this is one slick little device. As someone who likes to take control of the photographic process, the gopro hero3 black edition has some great options in terms of remote control.
The gopro hero3 black edition camera settings can be changed using the camera’s 3 buttons but it also includes a small rechargeable keyfob style WiFi remote that lets you change all the settings, shoot photos, start and stop video recording and, importantly check the current settings and status on the remote’s small LCD screen. Even better, there’s a smartphone app for it that gives you a great interface for remote control. In order to use a smartphone, you’ll need to turn on the gopro hero3 black edition camera’s battery-draining Wifi and set your smartphone to connect to the camera’s password protected Wifi network. Using an Android Samsung Galaxy SIII, I could not only see the current settings and status but also monitor what the gopro hero3 black edition camera was seeing. The video you see on phone’s screen lags by a second or two, however, so you’ll need to anticipate any still shots and use burst mode. With the smartphone app, you can also view, download and delete previously recorded videos and stills, a very nice feature.
The gopro hero3 black edition camera, waterproof case and remote seem very well-made. As for the kit, it would have been nice if the gopro hero3 black edition camera had included a clamping mount instead of two different types of stick-on mounts. The package sadly also does not come with a micro-HDMI cable or adapter to view video and images on your HD TV. There are two USB cables for charging the remote and gopro hero3 black edition camera and to access to video and photo files as well as a Quick Setup guide and full manual. GoPro recommends a class 10 micro-SD card for the gopro hero3 black edition, also not included.
Gopro hero3 black edition during hands-on testing, video looked very smooth with pretty good quality on a laptop screen. Stills were also pretty good once I switched on Auto White Balance. Switching to the smartphone app remote was a bit frustrating at first since it takes more than simply running the app to connect to the gopro hero3 black edition camera. I hope to test HD and ultra-HD video in more detail and post an update as time and weather permits. So far, I’m rather impressed with the sophistication of the gopro hero3 black edition.

Fantastic Media Chair,
x rocker pro 51396
We recently decided to create a media room in our basement for our Xbox One. We put in a TV but then needed to find seating.The x rocker pro 51396 appeared on my amazon suggestions and I showed the x rocker pro 51396 to my wife who thought it looked good. We bought two x rocker pro 51396 for a start. The x rocker pro 51396 arrived quickly from amazon and were packaged beautifully. The x rocker pro 51396 were simple to assemble and they look very nice. The x rocker pro 51396 does not have a large footprint so the x rocker pro 51396 does not take up much more space than an office chair. I didn’t use the sound feature initially since my TV only had a digital optical out and I needed to buy an adapter. My first impression of the x rocker pro 51396 was positive since I really liked the look. I did not find the x rocker pro 51396 chairs as comfortable as I would like and have to admit there is a bar on the x rocker pro 51396 that goes across under your legs that can be felt through the cushion.
This made the viewing experience a bit annoying and I was tempted to return the x rocker pro 51396 chairs. However, I just got the adapter and was able to use the x rocker pro 51396 chairs with the speakers and was pleasantly surprised by the experience. It really makes this seem like a real theater with the sound. The vibrations can be felt through the x rocker pro 51396 chair and with the x rocker pro 51396 chair going I didn’t notice the bar nearly as much. I played dead rising on the Xbox One and have to say it added a bit too much to the realism. For aesthetics I give this x rocker pro 51396 chair a 5, for comfort a 3 at best. However, overall I rate the x rocker pro 51396 as a 5 as I cannot say I have experienced anything like this x rocker pro 51396 chair before. Movies and video game are a whole new experience.
Three thumbs up,
I’m not one to write reviews on x rocker pro 51396 but I felt if i didn’t then some people would miss out on this x rocker pro 51396 product judging by other peoples reviews. So here we go!
Pros: The sound quality of the x rocker pro 51396 is great and the set up of the x rocker pro 51396 is extremely easy. It took me around 15 minutes for everything including unpack aging of the x rocker pro 51396. I haven’t had any problems with the x rocker pro 51396 wireless sound like others say they have. The vibrating of the x rocker pro 51396 is awesome when you play games such as Call of Duty or i’m sure any other action game. The seat of the x rocker pro 51396 is extremely comfortable. I have been having problems with my back because of my “natural slouch” and this x rocker pro 51396 gives me full support in the back. I gave the x rocker pro 51396 two thumbs up and my girlfriend gave the x rocker pro 51396 one only because I won’t get out of it!
Cons: I’m 6’3″ 230lbs and I really prefer the back of my x rocker pro 51396 chair to be high enough that I can rest the back of my head on it if I want. My girlfriend is making me write this line but she has problems with making the x rocker pro 51396 lean back because she is short (5’3″) But she is also really light so i think that the x rocker pro 51396 may have something to do with it as well.
Parents, if you don’t mind your kid blaring this x rocker pro 51396 chair gives full blast while playing games then this x rocker pro 51396 would be an excellent gift for any birthday or Christmas!
Hope this helped!
