EDITORS’ NOTES

Within David Crosby and Graham Nash's gossamer vocal harmonies anyone could hear there was a bond between the two that went beyond anything musical. This was even more apparent in a live setting as evidenced on this 1977 recording when they were touring 1975's Wind On the Water. Where the original vinyl mix sounded rushed with vocal takes buried under a poorly equalized band, this re-master brings the album back to life, giving every element a near tangible presence, starting with a vibrant version of "Immigration Man." Mellower songs like "Lee Shore" and "Page 43" really let you hone in on the chemistry between their voices. Previously unreleased tunes "King of the Mountain" and "Bittersweet" are bona-fide gems. The former floats on a stellar piano intro that approximates a hammer dulcimer before Crosby sings a riveting vocal performance, waxing on the repercussions of stardom and loneliness. The latter tune is such a treasure of a lost song that you have to wonder why it was omitted from the original release when it's (arguably) the best thing here.

About Crosby & Nash

This subset of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young featured David Crosby (b. Aug 14, 1941) and Graham Nash (b. Feb 2, 1942) relying on their sweet harmonies and strong songwriting. The duo lasted from 1972 to the more-or-less permanent re-forming of Crosby, Stills & Nash in 1977. They produced a trio of well-received albums, but also re-formed occasionally in subsequent years, releasing the self-titled double-album Crosby & Nash in 2004. ~ William Ruhlmann
