Review Text This European import is, in actuality, a pirated version of David Crosby and Graham Nash's 1975 release Wind on the Water. Legalities aside, those looking for this material should direct their attention to the MCA reissue from 2000, as both the audio quality and packaging are infinitely better. This title was apparently copied from the mid-'80s budget CD, as it contains many of the same audio anomalies as its predecessor. In regards to the contents, Wind on the Water is definitely one of the duo's best, second only to their flawless debut collaborative effort Graham Nash/David Crosby (1971). The pair is backed by the Mighty Jitters -- a conglomerate of semi-regular studio heavyweights that include the likes of Russell Kunkel (drums), Leland Sklar (bass), David Lindley (guitar), Danny "Kootch" Kortchmar (guitar), and Craig Doerge (keyboards). Plus a few friends -- James Taylor (guitar/vocals), Carole King (piano/vocals), and Levon Helm (drums) -- also make sizable contributions to the proceedings. Some of Crosby's finest compositions can be found here. Among them are the dark and brooding "Bittersweet" and "Homeward Through the Haze," which had initially been documented during the mid-'70s re-formation of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. The album also features the first Crosby & Nash-written collaborations on both "Naked in the Rain" as well as the brilliant "The Last Whale" suite. Crosby's contributions include the classically influenced a cappella "Critical Mass," which is wed to Nash's enormously emotive title track "Wind on the Water." Despite the reappearance of Wind on the Water, Carry Me has remained in print throughout the EEC and continues to demand the additional pricing that accompanies European imports. However, caveat emptor -- as the domestic version is significantly less expensive and offers more value for the money. ~ Lindsay Planer
