Longtime friends, Judy Collins and Stephen Stills met in 1967 at an Eric Clapton concert at Whisky a Go Go in Los Angeles, CA. Before long, they were dating, and while their relationship did not last long, their brief affair spawned some of the most iconic songs of their careers. Stills joined Graham Nash and David Crosby to form the first Rock-n-Roll supergroup, resulting in Stills writing some of the band’s greatest songs, “Suite Judy Blue Eyes” and “Helplessly Hoping.” Both tracks about Collins, on the other side of the equation, “Houses,” one of her most recognizable songs, was written about Stills.
Fifty years, and millions of miles, later, Stills and Collins have recorded an album together.
The album, Everybody Knows, was released on September 22th 2017.
Their first album together, the title is a cheeky allusion to their affair, while the music is a collection of original and cover songs.
