New Version of Crosby, Stills & Nash's Debut Finally Corrects Guinnevere's Name


It only took 42 years to fix a spelling error on the debut album from Crosby, Stills & Nash. The classic Guinevere has always been spelled with two n's but is now going to be released as intended with one.

A new limited edition deluxe version of the Crosby, Stills & Nash album will be released on December 6 and for the first time they will correct the mistake they made on the original pressing with the correct spelling of the name.

Part of the preparation of the reissue, explains Marshall Blonstein, head of Audio Fidelity “had to do with the ‘n’ in Nash’s song Guinnevere. Since 1969, every vinyl, cassette and CD version of the album had it spelled with two n’s. But recently the group decided to take out the [historically inaccurate] extra ‘n.’ So our CD booklet, tray card and even the original LP labels now show the title with just the one ‘n.’”

Crosby, Stills & Nash was the hit album of the summer of ’69. It featured Graham Nash’s Marrakesh Express and Stephen StillsSuite: Judy Blues Eyes and stayed on the US chart for 107 weeks.

"Guinevere" is a famous David Crosby song which most everyone but the writer of this article knows. Nash writes the poppy stuff like, "Our House" and Crosby writes the cool 'out there' stuff like "Guinevere" or "Deja Vu."

To be fair, it was not the writer who made the mistake about Nash. It was a quote from the gentlemen at Audio Fidelity.
