Wild Tales is a 1973 album by Graham Nash. All songs that appear on this album were written by Graham Nash.
Contrary to later reports, the darker tone of this album was not inspired by the murder of Nash's then-girlfriend, Amy Gossage, by her brother; that tragedy happened more than a year after the release of this LP. Rather, Nash was in a somber mood in the wake of the failures of his relationships with Joni Mitchell and Rita Coolidge, and the unwillingness at the time of the other members of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young to reunite for a new album.
This album failed to break into the Top 30 on the US chart, a fact which Nash blamed on supposed lack of support and promotion from Atlantic Records. As a result, Nash left the label and signed with ABC Records for several duo albums with David Crosby.
