Graham Nash/David Crosby - nice secondhand find, but not a patch If I Could Only Remember My Name
Nice, timely find. It’s a solid 50/50 album and you know instantly who wrote each song. But yeah the Crosby tunes are stronger on his solo debut.

Both great listens though.
Yes, I think I was hoping they would be doing something a bit more unusual with their harmonies and vocal arrangements on this one.
Let’s be honest, these guys were recording & releasing virtually anything to fulfill quotas & keep the cheques in the post. Those coke habits didn’t pay for themselves.

Don Henley might have been worse for this, and a bit more late 70s/early 80s though. The music was pure dirge.

Went to Rough Trade to pickup the new Rick Rubin book & found some unexpected surprises:

Alvvays - Blue Rev (signed)
Belle & Sebastian - late developers (/500)
Sister John’s new album with 75% off. It’s not a brilliant album, but it’s worth £5.

I’ve been loving the new belle & Sebastian album
