Wind on the Water

All Music Guide - Jason Elias
As two of the most distinctive artists from the '60s and '70s given their work in CSNY, Crosby & Nash also did great work as a duo act. Wind on the Water was released in 1975 after the previous year's CSNY reunion tour and the dissolution of their contract at Atlantic. In many respects, this alliance made perfect sense. When it was just the two of them, they were often more likable. Crosby wasn't as much of a blowhard and Nash became more pragmatic. Wind on the Water's virtues are apparent with the first song, the warm and pensive single "Carry Me." "Homeward Through the Haze," "Low Down Payment," and "Naked in the Rain" are gems that all but sum up their complicated ...

When it was just the two of them, they were often more likable. Crosby wasn't as much of a blowhard and Nash became more pragmatic. Wind on the Water's virtues are apparent with the first song, the warm and pensive single "Carry Me." "Homeward Through the Haze," "Low Down Payment," and "Naked in the Rain" are gems that all but sum up their complicated harmonic and melodic style. Besides Crosby & Nash being on their game, the studio players here are impeccable. Lovers of '70s pop
ock will love to hear players like Danny Kortchmar and David Lindley effortlessly doing their identifiable riffs. James Taylor, Carole King, and Jackson Browne also showed up for these sessions, but do not intrude or overshadow Crosby & Nash. Without a doubt, despite the strong production, the stars of the show here are Crosby & Nash. The album concludes with "To the Last Whale...: Critical Mass/Wind on the Water." The song is not only a testament to the album's skill at making the complex seem effortless, but it also gets its point across without being mushy. Wind on the Water has an instant classic, lived-in sound and is a definite must-have.

    One of the great Crosby/Nash albums

    This is a great album and just one of several Crosby/Nash made together as a duo. There is no excuse for the lack of availability of their other great albums such as "Whistling Down the Wire" and their self titled album. These are certainly worth seeking out as they have been released on CD in the past.

    A Mid 70s Gem That Holds Up Well

    Anyone who loved the soaring beautiful harmonies of the original Crosby, Stills & Nash (and later Young) is sure to find some pleasure in this mid '70s duo album of Crosby & Nash. Opening with the hauntingly beautiful "Carry Me," the album draws the listener in to a universe of harmony and melody. It continues through many other songs as well ("Mama Lion," "Bittersweet," and the powerful anti-whale killing closing track, "To The Last Whale.") Some tracks are not as strong as these but still offer something interesting musically or lyrically. The CD reissue offers a way to hear these classic songs in a crystal clear way without the pops and cracks and compression of vinyl records. Enjoy it!

    DON'T BUY THE IMPORT VERSIONS

    This is a great, milestone record by David and Graham and one of the major releases of 1975. Warning, those other versions out there (mentioned by the previous reviewer) are NOT the same as this release -- they were not created from the original master tapes and not sanctioned by David and Graham. Do yourself a favor and AVOID the imports - this is the one they'd like you to hear, and besides had great liner notes and additional photos the others don't have acces to. How do I know all this? I produced the reissue you see on this page.

    Equal in quality to Deja Vu

    This album represents the best work of David & Graham between the breakup of CSN&Y and the reformation of CS&N. ''Carry Me'' is one of the best tracks Crosby ever wrote, and is rivaled only by ''Shadow Captain'' on CSN. ''Critical Mass'' and ''Wind on the Water'' each contribute to the mood of the other, making it the best track on the album. By the way, there is NO DIFFERENCE at all between this album and (the bootlegged, I think) Carry Me album. Any CS&N fan will go nuts over this album.
