The best-known fruit from the late-’60s union of Judy Collins and Stephen Stills is the song Stills wrote about their breakup, “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes,” which Stills later made famous with some dudes named Crosby and Nash. But their brief romantic relationship began as a musical one, when Stills played lead guitar on Collins’ excellent 1968 album, Who Knows Where the Time Goes. Fresh out of Buffalo Springfield and not yet a mega-star with CSN, Stills was at the time a wunderkind with talent oozing out of every pore, and the crystalline-voiced Collins was at the peak of her powers as a folksinger and interpreter. Who Knows Where the Times Goes contains, of course, the shiveringly lovely Sandy Denny song of the same name, plus the first recording of Rolf Kempf’s “Hello, Hooray” (which Alice Cooper would later cover), but the stunner is the closing track, a loose, haunting jam on the murder ballad “Pretty Polly,” which features Van Dyke Parks, drummer Jim Gordon, and Gram Parsons collaborator Chris Ethridge alongside Collins and Stills. It’s a jaw-dropping recording, one of those takes that just has the “spook” to it. With any luck, Collins and Stills have brought some of that magic to this current tour, which supports their new collaborative album Everybody Knows. At the very least, Stills is gonna sing “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes” while Judy Blue Eyes is in the room, which has to be awkward.
