 I feel so lucky to have grown up in such an amazing time for music.  I can 
still remember the first time I heard I Wanna Hold Your Hand. Goose bumps! But 
Motown was also wonderful during my teen years as well as the protest music.

Still tripping on Crosby, Stills and Nash after discovering
this treasure, I thought I'd post the song that started it all.

As I remember the story, Steven wrote the song and taught
it to David. They worked on harmonies for it, but David 
always thought that it needed a third voice. 

So they go over to Joni Mitchell's house, and there they 
meet for the first time this guy from England who they 
really only know as the voice of The Hollies. And things
progress and get wild and wooly the way things got back
in those days of Laurel Canyon house parties, and at 
some point Steven and David start to sing "Helplessly
Hoping," which of course no one has heard before. 

On the second verse, David heard Graham Nash join
in, singing the *exact* third harmony part he had 
written in his head. And the rest is history.
