"We have a more natural-sounding record overall. The bass ... is tightened up a bit. It actually sounds better than it does on the MoFi. ... Here it's given a little more tighteness and definition and it sounds wonderful. It involves you in a way that doesn't draw attention to itself. ... I'm pretty sure that anyone that has the Mofi that heard this closely in comparison on a good system would prefer the new cut. ... if you want to hear the best of what this record can offer the Atlantic 75 is a no-brainer." — Scott Wilson, The Pressing Matters, YouTube video

"Compared to the original, which I love, this is clearer, it is more open, it is more dynamic — I would say it's at least as good as the original but different. This does sound better, but to say that in any way the original sounded bad, would be really misrepresenting it. It is very, very lush — very, very full." — Dave Denyer, YouTube video

If I Could Only Remember My Name was the debut solo record from David Crosby. Recorded in 1970 after the passing of his girlfriend Christine and released in February of 1971, the album explores themes including loss and disorientation. The album features a who's who of contributors from the San Francisco Bay area including Paul Kantner and Grace Slick of Jefferson Airplane, Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead, and Santana, and his cohort from Los Angeles including Graham Nash, Neil Young, and Joni Mitchell.

The album has attained a cult status throughout the last 50 years, hailed for its spooky, psychedelic, and truly unique sounds.

AllMusic gave the album 4.5 stars, with reviewer Stanton Swihart writing: "With his ringing, velvety voice — the epitome of hippie crooning — and inspired songwriting, he turns If I Could Only Remember My Name into a one-shot wonder of dreamy but ominous California ambience."

All the hallmarks of a top-notch Analogue Productions reissue are here for you to savor: Mastered directly from the original master tape by Bernie Grundman and cut at 45 RPM. Pressed on 180-gram vinyl at Quality Record Pressings, and housed in tip-on old style gatefold double pocket jackets with film lamination by Stoughton Printing.

I received this album last week and was taking my Linn LP12 to be upgraded so thought what better to take this with me. After the deck had a Lingo 4 power supply installed we put this album on fresh out the box. The sound especially the bass was definitive, ultra low and ultra real, to be honest it sounded that good I found it hard to believe this was out in 1971. This album sounds better the the CSN 75 but it was always a great sounding record / sacd but Chad has once again hit this out of the park and produced the definitive version for 1/2 the price of the MFSL one step !, these 75s are absolute bargains!.
