Crosby & Nash, "To the Last Whale: (A. Critical Mass/ B. Wind on the Water)"
The closing track to this distilled duo's 1975 Wind on the Water opens with a full minute and a half of abstract a capella tones, then another minute of somber keyboard strikes and overlaid whale calls. And then it gets really bizarre when the pair harmonizes balefully about whales that have beached on the shore. Their voices crest prettily but overall, the song struggles to stay afloat in its own ponderousness.
