My mom used to play this album back when it was fresh and new in the late 1960's. I think the blonde (Michelle Philips, I think) is the only living member of the band at this point.

i'm sorry, but this song is more than a classic for my generation, it's one of its psalms, it's almost like you can remember the first time and place you heard it. like, but not quite like, when i heard Kennedy had been shot: french class age 18. french teacher said we should carry on till we had more info. no way. we just left. sorry i digress. but not really.
