Like a lesson in permutation, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young relates to a dizzying number of recording acts: CPR (Crosby, Pever & Raymond), Manassas, Stephen Stills, The Stills-Young Band, Crosby & Nash, Graham Nash, Neil Young.

But it's the original post-Byrds-and-Buffalo-Springfield supergroup that's in action for the moment: CSN announced this week plans to record an album of covers with legendary producer Rick Rubin. Graham Nash told that Rubin wants the band to make "an album of all the songs we love, all the songs we wish we've written."

On the last CSN studio effort, 1994's After The Storm, the band flexed its cover-craft with a take on Beatles classic "In My Life." No word yet on what the trio will choose to include this go-around, but anyone betting against the prospect of one or two more Lennon/McCartney numbers should probably get out of the betting business.
