All Aboard the MarrakeSh Express
Take home a signed piece of music history from Graham Nash celebrating the 50-year anniversary of the song: with a personally autographed guitar by Graham Nash especially for tonight, the lyrics signed by Graham Nash, and an original 1969 '45' single of "Marrakesh Express" recorded by Crosby, Stills & Nash. Nash wrote the song, which debuted at Woodstock and reached No. 28 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1969. His inspiration? His Moroccan train trip from Casablanca to Marrakesh in 1966.
