Liner Notes

From his house in Los Angeles (complete with his kids running around in the background), Graham Nash phoned in to talk with Scott Muni shortly after the release of the first CSN&Y album since Déjà Vu. And while the album and the reunion dominate the conversation recorded here, Nash is also a little more nostalgic about the tunes he decides to introduce to fulfill his responsibility as DJ for the World of Rock radio show. Besides some cuts from the new CSN&Y album, he also gives the back-story on songs from The Hollies, Woodstock, and Joni Mitchell.
