Album released on this day in 1970.

Déjà Vu features guest appearances by Jerry Garcia, who contributes some
of his patented pedal steel guitar action to “Teach Your Children,” and John Sebastian, whose harmonica can be heard on the title track. By Stephen
Stills’ estimation (in Crosby, Stills & Nash: The Authorized Biography), the
album took about 800 hours to record, all told, but given that it’s earned a
spot on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums list.
