Info for Graham Nash & David Crosby (Remastered)
This self-titled release is one of -- if not arguably the -- most impressive side project to arise from CSN. Taken beyond face value, Graham Nash/David Crosby is a direct reflection, if not an extension, of the musical and personal relationship between its co-creators.
Likewise, the results remain true, enhancing rather than detracting from the very individualistic styles of Crosby and Nash. The best elements of each are readily available here, punctuated at every turn by their complicated vocal arrangements and air-lock harmonies.
In the wake of the enormous successes garnered by the albums Crosby Stills & Nash, Déjà Vu, and Four Way Street, the principal members were essentially given carte blanche studio access to pursue solo projects as well. This release is the first in what would turn out to be a series of collaborative efforts between Crosby and Nash.
Musically it continues in much the same vein as their respective debut solo releases, If I Could Only Remember My Name and Songs for Beginners. Nash's contributions include 'Girl to Be on My Mind,' 'Stranger's Room,' and 'Southbound Train' -- a twangy piece of Americana featuring a high and lonesome steel guitar solo from Jerry Garcia that likewise hearkens to the Grateful Dead's American Beauty, Elton John's Tumbleweed Connection, or the Band's Music From Big Pink. These tracks co-exist in stark contrast to Crosby's more cerebral and incisive contributions, such as 'Whole Cloth,' 'Games,' and 'The Wall Song.'
Graham Nash/David Crosby offers much of the same unique songwriting and personal style which informed their better contributions not only to the CSN-related efforts, but as far back as their offerings with the Hollies and the Byrds. Interested enthusiasts are also urged to locate Another Stoney Evening -- a live acoustic release from October 10, 1971 -- which includes seminal live versions of 'Southbound Train,' 'Where Will I Be,' 'Immigration Man,' and 'Stranger's Room.'

has helped shape the world around him through ideas, innovations, and influential works of art for more than four decades. One of music’s most legendary singer-songwriters and vocal harmonists, Nash has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice - with The Hollies and Crosby, Stills & Nash - and is in the Songwriters Hall of Fame. He is also an internationally renowned photographer and digital imaging pioneer. In 1990, his passion for photography led him to establish Nash Editions, recognized by the Smithsonian for its role in the invention of digital fine art printing.
Born in the seacoast town of Blackpool, England, and raised near Manchester, Nash was appointed OBE (Order of the British Empire) by Queen Elizabeth in 2010. That same year, the group with which he first rose to fame, British Invasion icons The Hollies (named for Buddy Holly), were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Their 1960's chart success rivaled that of the Beatles and the Stones with hits including “On A Carousel,” “Bus Stop,” “Carrie Anne,” “King Midas In Reverse,” and “Pay You Back With Interest.” In 2011, the DVD documentary The Hollies: Look Through Any Window 1963-1975 was released, featuring live performances, vintage television appearances, and new interviews. The film was produced in cooperation with Nash and other Hollies members.
Nash departed The Hollies in 1968, and went on to form Crosby, Stills & Nash (CSN) with David Crosby and Stephen Stills after connecting and harmonizing with them in Laurel Canyon. Among the classic songs he’s composed for CSN (and CSN&Y) - with whom he still tours and records - are “Marrakesh Express,” “Teach Your Children,” “Our House,” “Lady Of The Island,” and “Just A Song Before I Go.” The trio’s landmark 1969 debut earned CSN that year’s GRAMMY® for Best New Artist. Neil Young joined them for the follow-up, 1970’s #1 CSN&Y debut Déjà Vu - both albums are included on Rolling Stone’s list of the 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time. Other highlights include the 1971 CSN&Y live double-LP 4 Way Street, CSN’s Daylight Again (1982), and CSN&Y’s American Dream (1988) and Looking Forward (1999).
As a solo artist, Nash’s repertoire reaches back to 1971’s Songs For Beginners, which introduced signature songs including “Military Madness” and “We Can Change The World” - it is bookended by 2002’s Songs For Survivors, his latest solo title. Nash’s ongoing collaboration as a duo with David Crosby also dates back that far, a partnership captured early on with the 1971 live recording Another Stoney Evening. In 2011, digital/vinyl editions of that album became the inaugural releases on Blue Castle Records, the duo’s new label, followed up by the DVD release of Crosby-Nash: In Concert, presenting a full show, filmed in high definition, from their 2011 U.S. tour. All aspects of Nash’s musical life are surveyed in the three - CD retrospective boxed set Reflections (2009).
With his photography, Nash has drawn honors including the New York Institute of Technology’s Arts & Technology Medal and Honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters and the Hollywood Film Festival’s inaugural Hollywood Visionary Cyber Award. His work is collected in the book Eye to Eye: Photographs by Graham Nash; he curated others’ work in the volume Taking Aim: Unforgettable Rock ‘n’ Roll Photographs Selected by Graham Nash (2009). In 1990, his passion for photography led him to establish Nash Editions, which evolved out of experimentation in the late 1980's scanning and manipulating Nash’s photographs on a computer. Now one of the world’s top fine art photographic printmaking houses, Nash Editions is recognized by the Smithsonian Institution for its role in the invention of digital fine art printing. Since 2005, its first IRIS 3047 printer and one of its first published works - Nash’s 1969 portrait of David Crosby - have been in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History.
As ever, Nash’s passionate voice continues to be heard in support of peace, and social and environmental justice. The No Nukes/Musicians United for Safe Energy (MUSE) concerts he organized with Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, and John Hall in 1979 remain seminal benefit events. In 2011, Nash was instrumental in bringing MUSE back to the forefront with a concert to benefit Japan disaster relief and groups promoting non-nuclear energy worldwide. In addition to CSN, the event at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Northern California featured Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, Jason Mraz, Tom Morello, the Doobie Brothers, Kitaro, Sweet Honey in the Rock, and Jonathan Wilson. Also in 2011, Nash was part of the line-up for an all-star concert benefiting the Fund for Civility, Respect, and Understanding in Tucson, Arizona.
