Stephen Stills & Judy Collins Book Co-Bill Tour

The love story of Stephen Stills and Judy Collins is well known to fans, documented in the suite Stills wrote and Crosby, Stills & Nash recorded called “Suite: Jude Blue Eyes.” Nearly 50 years since that release, Stills and Collins are now preparing for their first joint tour in support of their first album together.

Stills and Collins first teamed up in the studio to record the title track for Collins’ 1968 album, Who Knows Where The Time Goes. Stills stuck around the New York studio to record the song “Judy” and the demo was later released in 2007 as Just Roll Tape: April 26, 1968. Following their breakup, Collins wrote the song “Houses” about their relationship and included it on her 1975 album, Judith.

Though their two-year courtship was long ago, the esteemed singer/songwriters obviously still think fondly of one another.

Stills & Collins is due out Sept. 22 on Wildflower / Cleopatra Records. Along with songs from their history, the joint effort includes duets of classic tunes like Bob Dylan’s “Girl From The North Country” and Leonard Cohen’s “Everybody Knows.” Collins also wrote a new song called “Rive Of Gold” for the album.

The duo produced the album with Marvin Etzioni and Alan Silverman. It features Russell Walden on piano, Kevin McCormick on bass, and Tony Beard on drums.

The accompanying tour begins July 26 in Highland Park, Ill., at Ravinia Festival At Ravinia Park.

Cities on the routing include Denver, Atlanta, Beverly Hills, Atlantic City, Las Vegas and Charlottesville, Va.
