Graham Nash Revisits His Solo Beginning On Stage

Not a lot of artists started their solo career in such privileged position as Graham Nash who, by the time he decided to do so, was twice a superstar, having first hit the big time with THE HOLLIES and then in the company of David Crosby, Stephen Stills – and Neil Young. As a result, the veteran’s fans didn’t know what to expect of him when, in 1971, the British-American musician decided to venture off not as part of any collective; they only knew it would be a high quality collection of songs. Indeed, the “Songs For Beginners” LP made it into Top 20 on many markets, and although that album’s follow-up, “Wild Tales” from 1974, fared less successfully, both records are long considered classics, and Nash’s aficionados were delighted to hear them both played in sequence, save for a single swap in the order, in 2019.

Those performances, especially pieces aired from a Boston stage, got preserved for posterity, of course, to be released under the simple title “Live: Songs For Beginners / Wild Tales” on May 6th, looking like this – and not featuring none of the heavy guests who left their mark on the studio versions:
