Byrds songs Product Information
The Byrds emerged in 1965 with one of the most identifiable sounds of the 1960s, and proceeded to evolve from folk-rock to psychedelia to country-rock. The Byrds were defunct by 1972, but re-grouped briefly in 1973, with all of its original members, to record one last album. BYRDS is in the country-steeped vein of the 1968 classic SWEETHEARTS OF THE RODEO, shimmering with chiming 12-string guitars and lush, multi-part harmonies. ...See Full Description

||Gene Clark Was "The Byrds"|
Although some will say that Roger McGuinn was the Byrds and I guess you could say that because he did assemble the Byrds but it was the real genius of Gene Clark behind The Byrds. Gene's vocals were superb and his writing talents were far above McGuinn. "Full Circle" the opening track on this disc really shines Gene's writing talent and many more after that. (And check out that mandolin solo by Chris Hillman on that track). Gene left the Byrds twice only because of his fear of flying and I believe there might have been some personal issues between him and McGuinn. Can't blame him on his flying issues. I do not care for flying either. R.I.P. Gene. You may be dead but you are not forgotten. I rest my case.

||Not Classic Byrds but Still Very Good|
"Byrds" probably sounds more like Crosby, Stills, and Nash than classic Byrds. McGuinn's 12-string Rickenbacker is mostly absent or lost in the mix, and the vocal harmonies fail to recall the good old days of the original Byrds. But Chris Hillman's mandolin playing is prominently superb througout, and the overall musicianship is excellent. Gene Clark's two songs rate with the Byrds finest, and his covers of two Neil Young songs are also excellent. Not what critics expected to here from the orignial Byrds, but very good anyways.
