The album is one of reflection and transition of a singer-songwriter whose career (the Hollies, CSN, CSNY) has spanned more than five decades and counting.

8 Military Madness   filmed by info4allat 

 “Military Madness” helped to get a lot of things off my chest. England had been bombed by the Germans, and when I moved to America I realized that the same issues were going on in Vietnam. The battle was raging, and I wanted to say something about the madness of the military agenda waging preemptive war – which is what happened later in Iraq and Afghanistan.(Graham Nash)

 12 Lady of the Island   filmed by Arthur

 "Lady of the Island" is a folk song written by Graham Nash in the late 1960s. The song appears on Crosby, Stills & Nash's critically acclaimed, self-titled debut album. The song is notable for taking its inspiration from fellow folk musician Joni Mitchell, with whom Nash was romantically involved at the time. Although the album contains another love song to Mitchell, David Crosby's "Guinnevere", Nash told Mojo magazine in April 2009 that this potentially tricky situation did not create any problems. He explained: "The way that we went about our lives did not entail jealousy and it didn't entail raging about somebody being with somebody else's woman. Me and David and Joan didn't think anything of it, that's for sure.

13 Just a song before i Go     filmed by info4allat 

 "Just a Song Before I Go" is a song by Crosby, Stills and Nash that appeared on the 1977 album CSN.

It is also one of the band's shortest songs, with a running time of only 2:14. In Canada, it peaked at number 10.
The song was written by Graham Nash about leaving loved ones behind before going on a concert tour. It was written in Hawaii in about 20 minutes at the piano while Nash and Leslie Morris were staying with a friend, waiting for the rain to stop before leaving the house. The opening line came from the question: "You've got half an hour, why don't you just write a song before you go?"[1]

It was re-released in 1977 as SD-19188 and the cover was changed from black to brown. In 2003, the album was ranked #148 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. Certified septuple platinum by RIAA, the album's sales currently sit at over 8 million copies. It remains the highest-selling album of each member's career to date.

    Van Morrison - And the Healing Has Begun (album Into The Music)

     Into the Music is the 11th studio album by Northern Irish singer-songwriter Van Morrison, and was released in August 1979. The record received widespread acclaim that year, and was named by critics as one of the year's best albums.

    And the healing has Begun
    Live at the Hollywood Bowl 21 April 2006

    John Allair,Robin Aspland-keyboards,Crawford Bell - Acoustic guitar,trumpet,backing vocals
    Cindy Cashdollar-steelguitar,Ned Edwards - guitar.David Hayes -bass,Kate Kissoon-backingvocals,
    Jason Robert -violin. Neil Wilkinson -drums.

    Biographer Brian Hinton calls it the central song in the album and perhaps in Morrison's whole career: "It starts just like 'Cyprus Avenue', no coincidence as the line about 'songs from way back when' hints, and with a walk down the avenue (of dreams), to the sound of a haunted violin. A song of full, blazing sex as well as revelation. The healing here is like that in Arthurian myth, the wounded King restored through the action of the Holy Grail, but it is also through as graphic a seduction, almost, as the original live version of "Gloria"'.
    Author Clinton Heylin concludes that "what makes the song, and indeed Into the Music work is its self-awareness. Gone is the awkward self-consciousness... It is replaced by a newly assured tone, born of a genuine awareness of what he (Morrison) was attempting

    The sky is cryin, look at the tears roll down the street.
    The sky is cryin, look at the tears roll down the street.
    I'm wadin in tears lookin for my baby,
    And I wonder, where can she be?

    I saw my baby one mornin, and she was walkin on down the street.
    I saw my baby one mornin, and she was walkin on down the street.
    Made me feel so good,
    Until my poor heart would skip a beat.

    I got a bad feelin, my baby, my baby don't love me no more.
    I got a bad feelin, my baby don't love me no more.
    Now, the sky's been cryin,
    The tears rollin down my nose.
