Graham Nash David Crosby is the first album by the partnership of David Crosby and Graham Nash, released on Atlantic Records in 1972, catalog SD 7220. It peaked at on the Billboard Top Pop Albums chart, and a single taken from the album, "Immigration Man", peaked at on the Billboard Hot 100 on June 17 and 24,1972. It was certified gold by the RIAA, and it was dedicated to Joni Mitchell, as "to Miss Mitchell".
Taken beyond face value, Graham Nash/David Crosby is a direct reflection, if not an extension, of the musical and personal relationship between its co-creators. Likewise, the results remain true, enhancing rather than detracting from the very individualistic styles of Crosby and Nash.
Stephen Stills and David Crosby have been taking it on the chin lately, and the blows hurled against them have not been without justification: the live album of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young may have been an accurate reflection of that group’s performance, but it conveyed the feeling of a slipshod half-effort, while the two Stills solo LPs were marked by. distressing egocentricity at all levels, and the Crosby solo effort by a stupefying vagueness. It wasn’t evaluations of a cool, objective nature, however, that mattered most. Neither David Crosby, another original Byrd, nor Graham Nash has ever gotten anywhere near as offensive as Stills at his worst. But then, neither Crosby nor Nash has the capacity to catch fire, as Stills is always threatening to do.

Crosby Stills & Nash's debut album was released in the early spring of 1969. I was nineteen years old then, already a huge Byrd and Buffalo Springfield fan. And so how could I not flip over the beautiful air-tight hamonies of Suite Judy Blue Eyes, Merrakesh Express, Wooden Ships and Lady of The Island. That brings us to Graham Nash & David Crosby @ 1972. I guess the best way to desribe this album is to say that both kind of took a step back. Yes they both enjoyed early success in their respective bands The Byrds and The Hollies in the mid to late sixties.
