Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young – Almost Cut My Hair

This is, of course, a classic of post-Woodstock psychedelic rock, and has almost been played into corniness by hippies and counter-culture enthusiasts everywhere, but it remains a great rock song, and what has always struck me about it is Crosby’s ability to find such significance in so mundane a thing. This is also a pretty cool live recording, seeing what he actually means by his “freak flag,” because the idea of someone who looks like that selling out Wembley stadium today is outlandish.
