iTunes Review

After a 1974 tour with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, it only made sense that David Crosby and Graham Nash carry on and make their second album as a duo. Just because the members of CSN&Y rarely got along didn’t mean that the rich blending of Crosby and Nash’s voices should go to waste. This was 1975, and the two gents were now a little older. The music reflected that; it’s an album as gentle as its title. The songs play off a dynamic of Nash’s sing-along pop (listen to “Love Work Out” and “Cowboy of Dreams”) and Crosby’s more figurative turns. It’s rich with themes of death (the beautiful “Carry Me” about the passing of Crosby’s mother), music-biz thievery (“Take the Money and Run,” which features David Lindley’s wonderful violin), the fruitless search for emotional security (the slow-rising “Homeward Through the Haze,” complete with references to Samson and Caesar), and the environment (“To the Last Whale: I. Critical Mass: II. Wind on the Water”). Guests include Jackson Browne, James Taylor, and Carole King, as well as unheralded pedal steel player Ben Keith and The Band’s Levon Helm.

Customer Reviews

Brilliant! Here's a track by track and then a review...

Carry Me= touching story and singalong-ability Mama Lion= Nonesense with music to make it seem so serious Bittersweet= a cheesefest Take the Money= rock CN style Naked in the Rain= thought provoking Love Work Out= Massively groovy and strongly agressive (helps balance the lighter stuff) Homeward= very thoughtful, bringing new depth to an old metaphor To the Last Whale= may be hippie political save the whale stuff, but you really can't argue with the power and mystery of the wonderful music and vocals. I am a huge Pink Floyd fan, and this may sound strange, but that is why this album works for me. The delicate soundscapes on "To the Last", the overall use of production to set the instruments light among the vocals. Somehow the whole feel of each song is what grabs you, gotta love whoever produced this stuff. But beyond production it is the voices and lyrics by Crosby and Nash, and the music of the Jitters that makes this album unstoppable. They carry on the crystaline perfection that is CSN(Y).

A Classic

Before attending a CSN concert in the early 80's a friend told me that if they did "To the Last Whale" it would give me goosebumps. Well CSN did perform it and yes it did give me goosebumps. A must have for any true CSN fan. I loved it in college and I love it now.


The actual release date was September 15, 1975 - not January 11, 2000. This album is a worthy follow-up to their first release. Wonderful side folks - David Lindley, Levon Helm, James Taylor, Carole King, Jackson Browne, and others.

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.
