Dave Crosby: If I Could Only Remember My Name (Atlantic)

Jonathon Green, Oz, April 1971

THE CURRENTLY fashionable craze for the muzak freaks down at J. Walter Thompson (Know the West Coast — all you need's a cursory glance at the Acid Test, The Worst of the Jefferson Airplane and the odd 'reefer') is spotting the superstar guitar riffs on Dave Crosby's 'solo' album: If I Could Only Remember My Name. Latest offering to emerge from the Jefferson Starship combine (cf Crosby and Slick/Kantner raps in Rolling Stone) is this good and at times and certain heights, very good album.
