Deja Vu all over again

Found a C album from 1970. It's CSNY's Déjà Vu



Was this the first album by Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young or the second album by Crosby, Stills, & Nash? I have this record filed under Y (always suspected that they listed the names in increasing order of importance), so I'd forgotten about it.

Haven't played it in a long time, but between So Far, Neil's Decade, CSN's Greatest Hits, and many years of rock radio play, I'm familiar with most of the songs. There are a bunch of famous ones (Neil's "Helpless", Graham's "Teach Your Children" and "Our House", Stephen's "Carry On", David's title track and "Almost Cut My Hair", their verson of "Woodstock"), but I'm more partial to the last three songs that haven't been played and performed to death.

Here's Stills' "4+20" from the Big Sur movie (aka Naked Joni).



And here's Neil's "Down By The River" from the same movie, filmed during the idyllic months between Woodstock and Altamont.

Under Y?!? That's just cuh-rar-eye-aye-zee, man.

Y as in "Young, Crosby Stills Nash &"

I understood that the "Y" was Neil's...but that's a highly unusual method of alphabetizing names of that form - I mean, if they were a law firm, they'd be under "C" in the Yellow Pages...
