Graham Nash - 'Reflections' (3 CD Set) Box Set Release Febuary 2009

On February Rhino celebrates Graham Nash’s career with Reflections, a three-CD boxed set containing 40 years of music with 64 songs; half of which are unreleased mixes, alternate versions and unissued tracks.

This is a deluxe package that features a 150-page booklet with 75 unseen photos and track notes by Graham Nash.

"Arranged chronologically, Reflections spans Graham Nash’s recordings from 1967 to 2007, starting with a trio of singles he released with The Hollies in 1967: “On A Carousel”, “Carrie Anne” and “King Midas In Reverse”. Nash left the group a year later, joining with Crosby and Stills to record the trio’s self-titled album......Reflections gathers several songs from that album-and its follow-up, released a few months later with the addition of Neil Young - including “Pre-Road Downs”, “Marrakesh Express”, “Our House” and “Teach Your Children”. The set also includes tracks from the group’s other albums: “Just A Song Before I Go”, “Wasted On The Way” and “Heartland”.

The collection also brings together several classics from Nash’s four solo albums, ranging from the politically-charged (”Military Madness” and “Chicago” / “We Can Change The World”) to the emotionally raw (”Simple Man” and “Sleep Song”) and the socially conscious (”Barrel Of Pain” and “Chippin’ Away”.) Reflections spotlights 32 songs with different mixes and alternate versions that have never been released. Among the highlights is Nash’s solo acoustic demo of “Right Between The Eyes”. Recorded during the Déjà Vu sessions, a live version of the track popped up in 1971 on a CSN&Y live album. The compilation contains six unreleased tracks, including “Water From The Moon”, “Try To Find Me” and “In Your Name”, a song he recorded in 2007"
