Everything you likely already cherish about these two is present here, heartfelt and immaculate harmonies, strong and distinct compositions from both artists, and superb musicianship -again provided by the 60's elite of California's session players.
When it comes to specific songs, it's more a matter of personal choices than objective hierarchies. Nash's songs are particularly moving and fiercer -as much as "fierce" is ever something to be said about Graham Nash- than anything in "Songs For Beginners." Crosby's pieces carry the wonderful dramatic undertow he could invoke -it seems, at will- ever since The Byrds' days and, more poignantly, in his first solo album and Deja Vu.
All in all, a thing of beauty. No disappointments, no proverbial "black holes."
An example of the significant music that you could still expect in the early seventies, before that decade turned grandiose and stupid.
This album though kicks off with the splifftastic ' Southbound Train' by Nash and even if you gave up chasing smoke circles in '74 it evokes that folky feel.Wheres my Freak Bros mag gone? I would highly reccomend this album and hope a version with bonus tracks and info book comes out as I'm sure they must of recorded more at these sessions and I , and it seems most other people know very little about this not quite lost gem.
Nevertheless, this CD is quality stuff from beginning to end. Crosby's 'dark' and slightly obtuse approach to song structure is perfectly complimented by Nash's more direct approach. Anyone who regarded Nash as 'the lightweight' amongst CSN&Y should think again. True, his contributions to the early CSN(&Y) were the poppier elements of their sound, but also some of their most instantly recognisable and commercially successful numbers. Here Graham has added a bit more bite to his songs, particularly the closing 'Immigration Man'.
The album opens with Nash's 'Southbound Train' which has Nash moving from his english pop mode of Deja Vu's 'Our House' into a truly American mellow country rock sound, similar in sound and feel to much of Neil Young's 'Harvest' album, and with great success.
Crosby follows up with the excellent 'Whole Cloth', and their trend of (by and large) alternating tracks, which is followed on their next 2 albums is set. If it works so well, why change it.
Anybody who admires Crosby's work in either The Byrds, CSN(&Y) or his brilliant 'if I could only remember my name' solo debut will not be disappointed in any of his work here. In fact songs such as 'Where will I be?" and "Page 43" could be among his very best.Read more ›

Very pleased with this album. It's the first time I have heard Nash and Crosby singing without Stephen Stills and I am impressed. Nice selection of songs and very good vocals.Published 9 months ago by Maxine Hopkinson
Nice first CD from C&N. If you liked CSN & Deja Vui records then you won't be disappointed with this. I was brought up on the Hollies & Byrds so enough said.Published 21 months ago by CMcC
I love their harmonies and actually prefer them as a duo rather than as part of Crosby, Stills and Nash. This music is so evocative of the time and never grows old.Published on 30 May 2014 by SJ
