“Most guys my age would have done a covers record or duets on old material. This won’t be a huge hit. It’ll probably sell nineteen copies. I don’t think kids are gonna dig it, but I’m not making it for them. I’m making it for me. I have this stuff that I need to get off my chest.” See Where Crosby, Stills & Nash’s ‘Suite: Judy Blue Eyes’ Ranks on Our 500 Greatest Songs of All Time Work on Croz,which was recorded at Jackson Browne’s Groove Masters studio in Santa Monica, California and James Raymond’s home studio, began about two years ago. “We didn’t have any money,” says Crosby. “None. We could have gone and gotten a deal, but everybody in the music business is very leery about the big companies and what kind of lifespan they might have. Most people are doing it on their own, so that’s what we did.” Croz is a mellow, moody record unlike anything else in Crosby’s vast catalog and many songs were written while Crosby was touring with Crosby, Stills and Nash. “Writing, man, you take it when you can get it,” he says. “A snatch of words will come, a piece of melody, you hang onto it and work away at it.” Throughout Croz, Crosby explores a diverse set of subjects. “Morning Falling” is about America’s drone strike policies, while “If She Called” – a stark track featuring nothing but soft electric guitar and Crosby’s voice – was inspired by a group of young prostitutes that he saw near his hotel in Belgium. “It was cold out and they had these skinny legs,” he says. “They were trying to entice these drunk animals to fuck them. It was so gross, man. So sad. I imagined these girls had come from Kosovo or some place really hideous and they were working their way west, trying to get their way out of the horror show that happened in the middle of Europe.
