After The Storm is the thirteenth album by Crosby, Stills & Nash, their fifth studio album in the trio configuration, released on Atlantic Records in 1994. It would be their last release on Atlantic, excepting reissues, for almost two decades. It peaked at #98 on the Billboard 200, the lowest charting position of their eight studio albums. It is currently out of print, although it is available for streaming on Spotify.
Unlike the group's previous album, except for one cover of a Beatles song all the compositions are by the trio, with no outside writing contributions. The sessions were somewhat of a multi-generational affair, with Stills' children Jennifer and Christopher appearing as well as Ethan Johns, the son of the album's producer, Glyn Johns. Johns was the first producer to receive credit on a CSN album without the principals.
To promote After the Storm, the group played almost 100 concerts in 1994 including Woodstock '94, and played both The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Late Night with David Letterman. However, according to Nash, even with the high visibility of the Woodstock anniversary festival and the television appearances, Atlantic did little in the way of promotion, which contributed to the album's low sales. Like their previous album, it received middling to negative reviews from both critics and fans. Also like their previous, none of these songs found a truly permanent place in the group's repertoire, with "Unequal Love" and "After the Storm" revisited a handful of times beyond the 1994 tours.
