    I think Stephen Stills wrote this for Judy Collins, and the “suite” also meant “sweet”. They used to have a thing for each other.

    In your Judy page, you’ve posted a song from her Paradise album, sung by Judy and Stephen. “The Last Thing on my Mind”.

    I played this a week or so ago (several times) and for a couple of mornings woke up with it in my head—the first thing on my mind was “The Last Thing on my Mind”.

    There’s a youtube of Stephen and Judy singing Ian Tyson’s “Someday Soon”, hosted by Graham Nash on TV.

    And, I suspect that Stephen Stills wrote “Southern Cross” while sailing off to the South Pacific to forget Judy. But that is unproven, and may be the Italian in me talking.

    Graham Nash and Joni Mitchell are another story, out of which comes “Our House”.

      Ted,
      That makes perfect sense with the blue eyes and all, but I didn’t know that about her and Stephen.

      Judy was one of my very first folk favorites. I have seen her three or four times and always come away from the concert an even greater fan.

      I do that too-play a song over and over because it touches so many part of me, and I can’t get enough.

      Someday Soon is another great song, as is The Last Thing on My Mind. I find that many times the composer is outdone by another singer. Someday Soon was a big Tyson hit but so many others have done it better.

      You name so many great songs in this one comment!

      Our House, another favorite of mine, from one of my all time favorite albums, Deja Vu.

      So many couplings in those early folk years!
