Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Long time compatriots and bandmates David Crosby and Graham Nash have joined forces yet again to release the oddly named Crosby/Nash 28 years after their last studio effort, Whistling Down the Wire. This double-disc is certainly worth the wait, despite the fact that most of the 20 songs are profoundly introspective and tinged with an elegant melancholy and sense of regret for an idealized past. To their credit, after four decades, Crosby and Nash are still in perfect voice, and remain graceful foils for one another, although some of the songs don't do justice to their prodigious talents. A handful are without focus and seem to be impressions in search of a hook, save the lovely, ethereal "Lay Me Down" (penned by Crosby's son, James Raymond) and the rather esoteric '60s throwback "Luck Dragon," with its elegant space jam ending. Nash's contributions are a bit more prosaic, and seem to be autobiographical ruminations about middle age, except the chilling environmental cautionary tale, "Don't Dig Here" and haunting post-9/11 song, "Half Your Angels." But the disc really comes alive when the duo shows their old ire, "They Want It All," a clear potshot at corporate greed and politics, and a wrenching read of "My Country 'Tis of Thee." --Jaan Uhelszki

Product Description

It's been almost thirty years since venerable rock legends David Crosby & Graham Nash recorded the last of their three endeavors as a duo (1976's Whistling Down The Wire). The studio band for this project is a hybrid of old friends & new friends. Crosby & Nash have surrounded themselves with some of the most talented musicians they have come across in the business. Russ Kunkel, drummer from their 70's projects, & his son Nathaniel, are co-producers of the album of all new material. Crosby/Nash will be embarking on an extensive US tour with Stephen Stills this summer & will be hard at work.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Prayer for Grace in a Dark Time August 13, 2004
Format:Audio CD
While nobody was looking, David Crosby and Graham Nash have recorded one of the most powerful, poignant, and musically solid albums of the year. A couple of songs here -- "Lay Me Down" and "Jesus of Rio" -- stand up with the very best work of Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young, but this album is not a hollow nostalgia exercise by a couple of quaint relics of the Woodstock Nation. Instead, it's a master class in songwriting and performance from two artists who have retained their integrity and commitment to innovation even after decades of being ignored or ridiculed by the mainstream press.Hearing this album in the era of George Bush is like discovering that a wilderness area that was supposed to have been paved over to build another Wal-Mart was somehow spared and is thriving with new life.

The last few CSN/CSNY projects have seemed enervated and oddly plastic, but "Crosby/Nash" charges into new musical territory while retaining the smart soul-searching lyrics, melodic exploration, and exquisite harmonies that made these guys so beloved in the first place. Some of the credit for the freshness of this album belongs to the band, which includes Crosby's astonishingly talented son James Raymond on keyboards, the very fine young guitar player Jeff Pevar (respectively, the R and P of Crosby's underrated band CPR), and under-the-radar guitar genius Dean Parks, who provided the witty, stinging guitar lines on Steely Dan classics like "Haitian Divorce." The presence of drummer Russ Kunkel and bass player Lee Sklar -- the celebrated rhythm section on dozens of albums by the likes of James Taylor and Jackson Browne -- reaffirms a continuity with the duo's earlier work, but even Kunkel and Sklar sound reinvigorated here.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Of This Year's Best CDs So Far August 15, 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What a beautifully recorded and sung album! My God, these guys sound as good as they did back in the seventies! Sure, their voices are a bit lower now and maybe they can't hold the notes quite as long, but this is as excellent a collection as anything else they've done. Kudos to fantastic instumental accompaniment by James Raymond, Dean Parks, Jeff Pevar, Lee Sklar and Russ Kunkel! And the songwriting is consistently powerful as well--"Lay Me Down," "Don't Dig Here," "Jesus Of Rio," "Milky Way Tonight," and "Live On (the Wall) are instant classics. If there's anything to criticize, it's the length of disc two, which is just about 29 minutes long, but, no matter, I would've gladly shelled out the $20 if they'd put the whole thing on one cd. This is definitely one of the year's best releases so far!

5.0 out of 5 stars Their best work ever February 2, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Because I know I'm excited, and the last reviewer was SO wrong, I want to be very careful to be calm, here, and avoid any trace of hyperbole.

CROSBY & NASH is the best thing either of those gentlemen has yet produced, separately or in any combination. I speak as an expert on their work and a wannabe musician.

It is impeccable. They've never been in better voice. And James Raymond's songwriting gift and voice are stunning, even in this context. In some places the album had me doing an unconscious Ray Charles imitation: hugging myself, rocking back and forth, eyes shut, grinning like a fool--in other places it produced effects similar to deep meditation--and in others it evoked grief insupportable. It left me with the overall sense that America is still well worth saving, and that we CAN still take it back if we have the heart and guts to try. It ends, magnificently, brilliantly, with the quietest, gentlest, most wistful, poignant, yearning arrangement you've ever heard (by Michael Hedges), just one acoustic guitar and two heartbroken voices, of "My Country T'is Of Thee."

POSTSCRIPT:

Three days ago, as I write this, this album was of tremendous personal help to me, in a time of great trial. Seriously.

At 2 AM, I experienced in my right eye symptoms I've had before, in the other eye. Small transient flashes of white light, flickering just at the edge of vision, for half an hour...followed by a blizzard of small sharp dark black dots, swarming in all directions like gnats. When that happens it means that a tear has occurred in your retina, and if you do not IMMEDIATELY have laser surgery, the retina will detach, leaving you blind in that eye.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank God someone can still write music February 6, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I've never bought a Crosby-Stills-Nash-Young-etc. album in my life. Not for not liking them; they were just one of those groups that were sort of ubiquitous and heard on album radio all the time. That's no longer the case, nobody these days knows how to sing, and I've been longing for good old fashioned three and four-part harmony like the people with southern Gospel and bluegrass roots used to do. My musical taste is eclectic, I listen to a great many things I wouldn't buy. Something made me buy this album today, even though it's probably a year old. Why? I heard "Lay Me Down" on KRXO radio's Sunday Morning Over Easy program for the first time this morning, I knew instantly who it was before the announcer even said, and by the end of this song I'd never heard of I was singing along with it. When announcer does tell me the name and where it was from, I'm amazed. I thought it was from a much older album instead of one from last year. Imagine! A brand new song that's done in the style of the old classics. I had to reward that kind of originality! Next thing I knew I'm over to Best Buy paying less than they sell it for here, a double album for a single album price. I listen, and while a little disappointed there wasn't as much harmony as I'd hoped, I'm impressed with what Crosby and Nash have to say, and I'm not selling this one. I'm sharing it with all I know who love harmony and remember CSN.
