FlinterFile: Crosby, Stills & Nash- Marrakesh Express
Graham Nash made a trip from Casablanca to Marrakesh in 1966. His experiences resulted in this song, which is named after the train he took to Marrakesh. He had written the song and proposed it in 1968, when he still was with the Hollies, to record it. It was rejected, as the other members thought it wasn’t commercial enough. He left the Hollies and when he joined CSN, he proposed it again. They liked the song and put it on the debut album. It was their first hit, number 28 in the US and number 17 in the UK. Enjoy
