5.0 out of 5 stars Ordsall Lad
Graham has been involved right in the heart of some of the greatest music of the last, almost...50 years ..WOW. This Ordsall Lad is proud to have gone to the same school as Graham Nash and to have followed his career through the Hollies, CSN, CSN&Y and Crosby and Nash. But what is often criminally neglected especially in the UK is the solo stuff. Graham's first two solo...

2.0 out of 5 stars A guy defined by his company
Put this on right after Crosby's box, and you hear an enormous difference. Mr Nash is thought to be so evolved, but this cannot be a musical judgement. His tunes are trite, lyrics are cliched & with inconsistent metaphors and he is sooo self-righteous. His buddies seem to take away from his empathy: he writes that it was only thru his wife Susan that he understood that...

Graham has been involved right in the heart of some of the greatest music of the last, almost...50 years ..WOW. This Ordsall Lad is proud to have gone to the same school as Graham Nash and to have followed his career through the Hollies, CSN, CSN&Y and Crosby and Nash. But what is often criminally neglected especially in the UK is the solo stuff. Graham's first two solo albums were magnificent as was the early work with the the aforementioned abbreviated American/Canadian troubedour trinity he was an equal member of, make no mistake without Graham these bands would not have worked. Not that Neil needed anybody else, mind you. There will always be gripes about omissions when you consider a lifetimes work and I wonder why the Hollies only get 3 tracks, surely "Tell me to my face",and "Lullaby to Tim" not to mention "Stop right there" would of only enhanced this set and provided greater career balance. But to concentrate on what is here there are riches aplenty tunes simple yet expansive of heart and concience such as "Wounded Bird", "Better Days" and "Chicago" from the first solo album and "Southbound Train" and "Mutiny" from the Crosby and Nash period, stunning music, perfectly produced and lovingly played by some of the best musicians available. The obvious well known stuff is here as you would expect and you won't be dissapointed when you "Teach your Children" or visit "Marrakesh Express" again. Rare tracks are few but "Right between the eyes" is welcome and it would have been good to hear a few alternative versions. There was a period in the eighties and early nineties where quality was questionable especially in the production department but some stuff was excellent like "Barrel of pain" and "Wasted on the way". Grahams later work has returned to form, check out "These empty hands" and "Dirty Little Secrets". In conclusion this is a must have career reflection of one of the UK's paramount singer/songwriters. If you don't have the originals and like what you have previously heard you will be delighted and enraptured, if you have all the albums already perhaps there is little new here but at least you can have a good selection for the car.

I have to apologize to Graham Nash.Throughout the seventies,eighties and much of the nineties i looked upon him as the weakest,almost irrelelvent part of CSNY.Time and Mr Nash"s work have proved me to be very wrong.This is a gorgeous,sumptuously produced set of his very underrated work.If their is a complaint of mine,it is not the inclusion of live tracks from the classic Crosby/Nash concerts or the many missing Nash classics i expected to see here ie CSN"s version of Chippin" away or Half your angels.This set does justice to Graham and his work.Their is a Stills" set in preperation.On the evidence of this one and the Crosby set,please don"t take too long to release it.

Great collection of songs spanning the Career of Graham Nash - goes right back to the Hollies and covers early CSN material as well as outakes, unreleased material and some great solo stuff. - A must for CSN fans!

5.0 out of 5 stars CSNY 'The Weakest Link' ?, 3 Feb 2009

Graham Nash's box set comes in the light of a further delay to Neil Young's archives. Whilst Neil has the luxury of a 10 disc set from 62-72, Graham has a 3 disc set from 66-09. Not the most prolific songwriter but his first couple of solo records and most of the records with Crosby are well worth investigating. Whilst most of these songs appear on earlier releases, these are alt versions and the booklet is very good. As this is a career overview it would have been great to hear more unreleased songs as long as they are not from Graham's 80s synthesiser period.

4.0 out of 5 stars Reflection of Ras, 8 April 2009

This review is from: Reflections [Box Set] (Audio CD)
This multiple CD was purchased as a requested present, as such was well received and is being much enjoyed. However, the recipient was not aware of how much it cost - 3 CDs at over 16 each is too extortionate as many of the tracks are compilations of previously published work. When will the music industry stop taking the public for a ride?

We can't forget that Graham Nash is one the great artists of the 70th to 90th, alone or with CSNY : this beautiful collection is a real opportunity to remeber this, and the choice of the songs are perfect.

Nash's solo work rarely get's the acclaim that his fellow CSN colleagues receive, despite being much more productive than Crosby and equally as good a songwriter as both Crosby and Stills.
This lovingly complied collectors set does re-balance the equation to a certain degree ad give those who have limited knowledge of Graham's solo work an opportunity to hear it on tandem with many of the songs he also composed for CSN, CSN&Y and The Hollies ( don't forget them!)

4.0 out of 5 stars Mastering problem?, 18 Feb 2009

This review is from: Reflections [Box Set] (Audio CD)
Having listened to this carefully put together retrospective there is much to admire. However annoyingly there is a strange noise emanating out of my right speaker on the alternate versions of the songs. It sounds almost like a bird humming/buzzing in the background and is rather annoying/distracting. Having paid 45 for this set it surely cannot be a manufacturing problem with the discs can it? Anyone else notice this?

2.0 out of 5 stars A guy defined by his company, 28 Feb 2011

This review is from: Reflections [Box Set] (Audio CD)
Put this on right after Crosby's box, and you hear an enormous difference. Mr Nash is thought to be so evolved, but this cannot be a musical judgement. His tunes are trite, lyrics are cliched & with inconsistent metaphors and he is sooo self-righteous. His buddies seem to take away from his empathy: he writes that it was only thru his wife Susan that he understood that parapaleic children have a difficult life. Mr Nash was lplresent at the creation of the expression "politically correct", and his songs fit that category, over and over and over. Boring.

Even without comparing him to the more illustrious half of his famous duo, Mr Nash has not successfully carried an album since 1970, and the box demonstrates a lack of interesting musical work. Musically, he was a good backkup singser, but was totally out of his depth when he tried creative songwriting. He was carried by his friends whom he was lucky to have. Mr Nash's career, lacking the musical talent of his associates, seems to have been cheerleadingthe guys who really were talented.
