Graham Nash: Songs for Beginners

Lenny Kaye, Rolling Stone, 22 July 1971

IF YOU ACCEPT Graham Nash on his own terms, which is simply as a nice guy who somehow wound up a musician, then you probably find him to be an agreeable sort. Add a sharp ear for melody, a pleasant voice that tends to grow on you, and a surprisingly restrained and beautiful production, and you have a good sense of what Songs For Beginners is all about.
