Marrakesh Express-Crosby Stills & Nash #28 Hot 100

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0TYq9RjdYYU

Graham Nash wrote this when he was still with The Hollies. He wanted to record and release it by The Hollies. The rest of The Hollies said no. Considering the other avant garde LPs and Singles by more traditional Pop Groups and Solo Artists, and their poor reception by their fans at the time, this was a reasonable decision. However, Nash felt so strongly about this and other issues, and perhaps compositions, that he left The Hollies, for Crosby Stills and Nash. Meanwhile, Joni Mitchell was playing Coffee Houses, living in Michigan with Chuck Mitchell, west of Rochester on Tienken Rd. in Oakland County, The Verona Apartments on Cass Ave. in Detroit, and hanging out at the Euston St., Lewis St., and Fenton Rd. Coffee Houses in Flint. Joni and Chuck Mitchell even appeared on Focus with JP McCarthy at WJR, along with later FCC Chairman Jim Quello and Hal Youngblood. Graham and Joni got together in LA, and set up housekeeping. Graham Nash wanted to marry her, in a most traditional way. He did write a great song about it, "Our House", a real place where they lived. Joni didn't want to repeat the mistakes she had made in the past, with Chuck and other men, and declined.

Joni Mitchell wrote "Woodstock" based on what Graham Nash told her about it. She wasn't there herself.
