Editorial Reviews

A totally unreleased live Byrds concert, 51 minutes of decidedly country-inflected Byrds with the jaw-dropping picking prowess of Clarence White spearheading the way! Includes Nashville West; Medley: Turn, Turn, Turn/Mr. Tambourine Man/Eight Miles High; So You Want to Be a Rock 'n' Roll Star , and more. Great sound, too!

4.0 out of 5 stars - DR. ROCKING BYRDS MEETS MR. COUNTRY HYDE BYRDS May 20, 2000
Format:Audio CD
When Chris Hillman left the Byrds in October 1968 to join Gram Parsons in forming the Flying Burrito Brothers, Byrd leader Roger McGuinn was the only original Byrd left. McGuinn did consider disbanding the Byrds - but after a rich folk, rock and even jazz legacy McGuinn opted to continue with a formula one-half country and one-half rock and roll.
With the brilliant guitarist Clarence White and his cohort, steady drummer Gene Parsons already on board, McGuinn hired the young John York to replace Hillman on bass and vocals. This was an inspired choice for York's harmonies were adaptable to those of David Crosby, Gene Clark and McGuinn himself. And remember, as brilliant as White was on guitar - he was certainly no Gram Parsons or Hillman in the vocal department.
But the Country guitarist White wanted to play more rocking guitar, just as the Folk-Rocking McGuinn wanted to sing more country vocals - definitely a Dr.Byrds meets Mr. Hyde mix!
After several months of recording and live shows, the new Byrds ventured north to 'Frisco to play Bill Graham's venerable Fillmore in February 1969. The result is this album - a nice, great, yet not grand blend of psychedelic rock and down home country riffs n' tunes.
The hard right towards country which began with "Sweetheart of the Rodeo" continued with White and even after the departures of Hillman and Parsons - and the country tunes featured on "Fillmore" are the best of the live album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Let's hear it for Clarence White! March 10, 2000
By Jules
Format:Audio CD
Without Clarence White, the latter period Byrds would have been a much duller beast. One can only wonder what would have happened if he'd prized daring over guaranteed cash and taken up the offer to form a Parsons-Hillman-White-Parsons lineup of The Flying Burrito Bros!
But he didn't, he stayed with The Byrds. Here he comes now, all sinewy stringbending stood-stock-still showmanship - listen to the way he plays the instrumentals "Nashville West" and "Buckaroo" here, and weep with joy and envy.
I disagree with the Amazon staff reviewer. It may not be the best ever Byrds mk II concert, but it's noticeably better than the live sections of the new expanded (UNTITLED)/(UNISSUED). And nor do I feel that they're missing Gram Parsons here - he certainly wasn't known for his way with a pitch-perfect lead or harmony vocal! I actually miss Chris Hillman's bass and singing more, especially on "Time Between".
But, hey, they do an energetic banjo-fuelled "Pretty Boy Floyd" and the Medley, far from being a typical let's-get-the-hits-over-with exercise is truly exciting - McGuinn's on fine form (but where's John York when you need him doing the David Crosby harmony parts! ). Similarly upbeat is the version of "Rock 'n' Roll Star".
Also present is a cool live take of "Bad Night at the Whiskey" (the single released from the contemporary DR BYRDS AND MR HYDE LP) which outclasses the muddy studio original. In fact the DR BYRDS album gets my vote for the worst ever Byrds LP - it's not helped by its ill-judged production sound, and must have lead many (I'd have been amongst them) to write the group off as a dead dodo.

5.0 out of 5 stars Newly Hatched Byrds Take Flight March 9, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Remember, this is a live recording of a newly formed band. Roger Mcguinn (guitar, vocals) remained the only original member, and the recent recruitment of Clarence White (guitar), Gene Parsons (drums) and John York (bass), meant this band was just starting out, attempting to encompass their newly written material with the legacy of the earlier, popular, trend-setting, group. I forgive these musicians the rawness on some of the tracks. For BYRDS fans, this is a MUST HAVE recording. It is an historic snapshot of the Byrds lineup that became the hard-working band that earned the reputation of great live performers, as witnessed on the UNTITLED album. The sound is not bad, considering the year (Feb '69). Mcguinn's vocals emanate cool energy, and the song selection is eclectic. Every prior album is represented (except NOTORIOUS). Their performance peaked in the middle (cuts #10, 11, and 12) with a series of their newly-recorded songs: King Apathy III, Bad Night at the Whiskey, and This Wheels on Fire; songs that were identified with this lineup. Also included were a mix of old country and folk songs, by writers such as Merle Haggard, Buck Owens, the Louvin brothers, Bob Dylan, and Woody Guthrie. As a card carrying BYRDS fan, I endorse this disc as ESSENTIAL for all BYRDS followers. For country rock fans, this is a live recording of the first band that popularized the genre.( To enjoy the BYRDS country rock studio masterpiece, buy SWEETHEARTS OF THE RODEO.) This disc is also a fine showcase for Clarence White's underrated lead guitar playing; few examples exist. At times, the guitar interplay between Mcguinn and White is just ear candy.
