“Graham Nash Live”: Songs from fifty years ago are still relevant today

“Graham Nash Live”: Songs from fifty years ago are still relevant today

Fifty years ago, Graham Nash was writing songs about relationships, politics and wars. Those songs that were so relevant to our lives in the early 1970s haven’t lost their relevance in the early 2020s. From Joni, Nixon and Vietnam to his new wife, Trump and Ukraine, only the names have changed.

Yesterday, Nash released his latest album, “Graham Nash Live.” It’s live versions of “Songs for Beginners” and “Wild Tales”, his first two solo albums.

It’s amazing that someone who turned eighty…that’s right…80…in February is still on the road. Nash has been touring this year after sitting out the last couple of years due to the pandemic. He’s been playing small venues, such as Space, in Chicago suburban Evanston, which has a capacity of only two hundred fifty seats. It’s a long way from the olden days when he was playing to packed stadiums as part of Crosby, Stills and Nash. But, smaller actually makes it better.

IF what you hear on the album is what you’ll see on this tour, it’s well worth the money you’ll spend to see the concert. Yes, Nash’s voice isn’t quite as strong as it was in his peak, that’s to be expected at age eighty, but it’s still more than strong enough to carry the album.

The songs are still great. They’ll bring you back to a time that was just as volatile as now. “Graham Nash Live” is well worth your time and money.

Every five years or so I decide to update this section. I can’t believe I’ve been doing this for close to ten years. The last time I did this I was close to sixty years old. Now I’m just a few months away from the big 7-ZERO. Scary AF!!! I’m pretty sure I won’t be doing an update when I hit 80, but you never know. But until then, lets just be grateful.
