Album Review

As confusing as the back story on this European import is, the fact remains that the Crosby & Nash [Forever Gold] is — simply put — a non-North American (read: pirated) pressing of the David Crosby/Graham Nash album Wind on the Water (1975). One reason for its spuriously legal release was undoubtedly a conspicuous unavailability of the contents on compact disc throughout the 1980s and '90s. In fact, it would not be until UMe's comparatively superior upgrade from 2000 that Wind on the Water would be given the audio quality and packaging it so deserves. As such, this CD was apparently copied from the mid-'80s budget pressing — as it contains many of the same audio anomalies as its predecessor. In regards to the contents, Wind on the Water is definitely one of the duo's best, second only to their flawless debut collaborative effort Crosby & Nash (1971). The pair are backed by the "Mighty Jitters" — a conglomerate of semi-regular studio heavyweights whose membership was bolstered by Russell Kunkel (drums), Leland Sklar (bass), David Lindley (guitar), Danny "Kootch" Kortchmar (guitar), and Craig Doerge (keyboards). Plus, friends James Taylor (guitar/vocals), Carole King (piano/vocals), and the Band's Levon Helm (drums) also make sizable contributions to the proceedings. Some of Crosby's finest compositions can be found here. Among them are the dark and brooding "Bittersweet" and "Homeward Through the Haze" which had originally been earmarked by the mid-'70s re-formation of CSN&Y. The album also features the first Crosby & Nash written collaborations on both "Naked in the Rain" as well as the brilliant "To the Last Whale..." suite. Crosby's classically influenced a cappella "Critical Mass" is wed to Nash's enormously emotive title track "Wind on the Water." Despite the reappearance of the aforementioned and digitally remastered Wind on the Water, Bittersweet has remained in print, while continuing to demand the collector's status typically accompanying European imports. It bears reiterating that the 2000 North American domestic pressing is significantly less expensive, easier to locate, and offers more value for money.

The singular odyssey of David Crosby remains one of the more remarkable tales in the annals of music history. As a founding member of the pioneering American groups the Byrds and Crosby, Stills & Nash, he helped create and popularize the highly influential folk-rock sound, forging the richly harmonic, radiantly acoustic approach that defined the West Coast music scene for years to follow; he also sold millions of records and enjoyed a cultural impact equaled by few of his contemporaries. Yet despite...
