‘How grateful we are that the musical story of CSN&Y is being celebrated with this beautiful book, which showcases our visual history through Henry Diltz’s camera lens.’ – Graham Nash
With their unique vocal blend and a musical approach that ranged from acoustic folk to melodic pop to classic rock, supergroup CSN&Y created some of the most beloved songs of the Sixties and Seventies. The story of one of the world’s most famous vocal harmony groups has been one of extremes: break ups and make ups, sublime musical chemistry and creative conflict, reunions and solo endeavours. Throughout, their enormous cultural impact has remained inarguable.
Documenting it all from the band’s very beginning was renowned rock photographer, Henry Diltz. A fellow musician and a friend, his camera has captured CSN&Y through five decades of collective and individual milestones. With an introduction by Graham Nash and presenting Henry Diltz’s remarkable CSN&Y archive, Genesis is delighted to announce CSN&Y: Love the One You’re With – a celebration of the band and its individual members, documented through 1,000 photographs and 34,000 words from 20 contributors.
‘It was scary. But once we knew what we had, you could not pry us apart with a crowbar. We knew we’d lucked into something so special. We could hear it plain as day.’ – David Crosby

'We were eager, young, and hungry. All we needed to do was get it right.' - Stephen Stills
'People believe in CSN&Y. When they see CSN&Y, even if it is a nostalgia trip, I want them to believe that life is worth living, and that the rest of their life is going to be better than the first part. I want people to feel an energy from the band that makes you feel great.' - Neil Young
'CSN&Y knew how to talk to an audience. Their music and the camaraderie on stage was genuine. It always seemed like the real McCoy to me. A very good feeling band, they'd always get you high.' - Joni Mitchell
