Crosby and Nash: More Kick-Ass Than Anyone Expects

Cameron Crowe, Rolling Stone, 23 October 1975

THANKS TO A band featuring such polished musicians as Danny 'Kootch' Kortchmar (guitar), David Lindley (fiddle and Hawaiian steel guitar), Craig Doerge (keyboards), Lee Sklar (bass) and Russ Kunkel (drums), Wind on the Water is easily the most sophisticated album David Crosby and Graham Nash have ever done. "For once," explains Crosby, "Graham and I wanted to make a record - a pushy record - that came right out and collared you." In the two months spent recording in LA, Crosby and continually put the tracks cut for their album to that test. Nearly every visitor to their shared bungalow here at the Chateau Marmont was treated to a spirited listening session.
