Instant Gratification: Graham Nash, “Teach Your Children”

Monday, June 18, 2018
Graham Nash - Over the Years...

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the founding of one of rock ‘n’ roll’s greatest super-groups – Crosby, Stills and Nash, so there’s more than a small amount of appropriateness to the fact that we’re about to honor one of that trio’s members with a new anthology.

OVER THE YEARS… is a 30-song compilation which features songs from throughout the 50 years since Graham Nash departed The Hollies, even kicking off with a demo of “Marrakesh Express,” the song that served as a line in the sand, creatively speaking, for Nash: when The Hollies rejected the tune, his frustration ultimately led him to travel to Los Angeles, which in turn set the stage for the beginning of Crosby, Stills and Nash.

The CD and digital versions of OVER THE YEARS… will be released on June 29, with a 15-track, 2-LP version hitting stores on August 31. Until then, however, you can enjoy a little instant gratification by listening to the demo for “Teach Your Children” that appears on the set.

And, hey, while you give it a spin, check out the track listing for OVER THE YEARS…
