Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young: American Dream

"American Dream is the 1988 reunion album for Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. Released on November 3, 1988, there was great anticipation for the quartet's first studio album in eighteen years, but all four performers were at various ebbs in their songwriting. ... The title song, written by Neil Young, was a satire of sensational political scandals involving Oliver North, former presidential candidate Gary Hart, and televangelist Jimmy Swaggart. Other songs included 'Got It Made,' written by Stephen Stills with help from Young, and 'Compass,' David Crosby's lament on how much time he had wasted on drugs. ... American Dream peaked at number sixteen on the Billboard charts and went platinum. Young moved on and revitalized his solo career, while the remaining trio turned to touring and recording occasional albums together" (Wikipedia).
