David Crosby has shared a previously unreleased demo of Laughing, a track from his solo debut album, If Only I Could Remember My Name, ahead of the album’s 50th anniversary reissue.

The reissue will be available on vinyl and a 2CD set which includes the album lovingly remastered from the original analogue tapes, accompanied by a bonus disc that features a dozen unreleased demos, outtakes, and alternative versions. The new remaster was overseen by original album engineer Stephen Barncard with restoration and speed correction using Plangent Processes. The deluxe edition will be available on 23 October. On the same day, the newly remastered version of the original album will be released on 180-gram vinyl. The music will also be available from digital and streaming services the same day.

The second disc uncovers nearly an hour of unreleased recordings from the making of If I Could Only Remember My Name. That includes the album’s first seeds, which Crosby planted on March 28, 1968 at Hollywood Recorders in Los Angeles. Together with producer Paul Rothchild, he recorded nascent versions of songs like Tamalpais High (At About 3) and more. Those tracks are joined by several unreleased session recordings, including Coast Road, Dancer, and an alternate version of Cowboy Movie that features Neil Young soloing instead of Garcia.
