Songs for Beginners is British singer-songwriter Graham Nash's debut solo studio album. Released in May 1971, it was one of four high-profile albums released by each partner of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young in the wake of their chart-topping Déjà Vu album of 1970. It peaked at No. 15 on the Billboard Top Pop Albums chart, and the single "Chicago" made it to No. 35 on the Billboard Hot 100. It has been certified a gold record by the RIAA.
About Songs for Beginners. Nash released his solo debut, Songs for Beginners, in the spring of ‘71 – a time in which the singer/songwriter found himself in the midst of both professional and personal flux: CSN&Y were in a temporary split and Nash’s relationship with Joni Mitchell recently ended. The album was a hit with critics, peaking at No. 15 on Billboard and spawning the top 40 hit Chicago. Songs for Beginners Q&A.
Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). But for the most part, I've been blown away by "Songs For Beginners"-I never suspected to discover such a strong album here. If you lean more towards the ROCK & ROLL end of things, you might find your attention wandering-the album absolutely never goes beyond mid-tempo, and with the possible exception of "Chicago"/"We Can Change The World", nothing can even remotely qualify as a 'rocker'.

As I stated earlier, Graham assisted in the remix of this album and I have to say, it's far better than the original release. You are going to hear some differences though. The vast majority of the album stayed pretty much true to form, but occasionally Graham may have chosen a slightly different studio take and then blended it in to the mix. Now, I see your antennas going up, but hold tight and read on, really
