A stunning selection!

Crosby & Nash's first album as a duo balances sing-a-long rockers with reflective mood pieces which suprise and delight. Of the two artists, Crosby produces the quieter moments - 'Where Will I Be?'is one of his most depressing yet beautiful songs, balanced by the answer song of 'Page 43,' his first steps to recovery following the death of Christine Hinton. He also succeeds with the calmness of 'Games,' a song rejected by the Byrds.Nash equally shares the spoils - 'Southbound Train' is a Dylan-Eagles type song but with the glorious harmonies, while 'Stranger's Room' & 'Immigration Man' were based on reallife events. Equally 'Frozen Smiles' was written about Nash's troubled friendship with Stephen Stills at the time - showing that C&N didn't really need him at this point. Atlantic's decision to re-release this album was a wise one indeed. An excellent album all round.
