Stills is a 1975 studio album by American musician Stephen Stills. It is his third solo album and his first release on Columbia Records. Stills began recording a solo album in 1973 under the tentative title As I Come of Age, and it was "almost completed" by February 1974. He may have recorded more in early 1974, but from May to December Stills was busy with a reunited Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young

Album · 1976 · 10 Songs. And by the time of the album’s release in 1976, Stills was nearly three years out of his band Manassas but he still had a foot inside the forever-feuding Crosby, Still, Nash & Young. And it sounds like it. The Latin-tinged Soldier and the dobro-stoked Stateline Blues would’ve fit on any CSN&Y album, while the closer, Circlin’," with its piano riffs and guitar jams, sounds like a wonderful cosmic folk song that Manassas forgot to record

Stephen Stills is top-heavy with 1970 sensibilities, to be sure, from the dedication to the memory of Jimi Hendrix to the now piggish-seeming message of "Love the One You're With. Yet, listening to this album three decades on, it's still a jaw-dropping experience, the musical equal to Crosby, Stills & Nash or Déjà Vu, and only a shade less important than either of them.

Dacus had a heavy hand on Stills' previous album (not including the "Live" album), 1975's "Stills", but he comes to the fore even more here-he contributes to the songwriting on a handful of tracks, plus he seems to handle a majority of the background vocals and even gets lead vocal spotlights on 3 songs. Illegal Stills" is indeed very slick in a mid-'70s kind of way, and on the whole it has an lightweight feel for Stephen, but it's a highly enjoyable listen. Latin rhythms crop up repeatedly, always to excellent effect.
