Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Arguably the last truly great album from the Byrds, this was a double vinyl set when it appeared in 1970. The 16-minute "Eight Miles High" took up an entire side--allowing for plenty of the free-flowing guitar, bass, and drum solos that were in vogue at the time. The live portion of the program opens with a gritty "Lover of the Bayou" and an inspired take on Bob Dylan's "Positively 4th Street." The studio set centers around the group's biggest latter-day hit, "Chestnut Mare," as well as Roger McGuinn's haunting "Just a Season." Here, Untitled is supplemented by Unissued, a whole bonus disc of rare and unreleased material. There are storming concert versions of Dylan's "You Ain't Going Nowhere," "My Back Pages," and "This Wheel's on Fire." Studio highlights include "Lover of the Bayou" and an undubbed "Kathleen's Song." Complete with detailed sleeve notes, recording details, and bonus tracks, Untitled/Unissued perfectly illustrates how archive recordings should be packaged. --Patrick Humphries

Product Description

Sony added the "Unissued" to the title of this 1970 studio/live double album because, in addition to the entire album on one disc, you get another disc of completely unreleased material!

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth Every Penny! February 25, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
As a long-time admirer of the Byrds' Untitled, I have to admit I was a bit skeptical when I heard that another CD was being added to the re-release, with studio and concert outtakes. Forgive me for doubting. The added studio tracks are a revelation. "All the Things" seems like a completely different song, with a brilliant arrangement that features complex vocal harmonies and a prominent McGuinn guitar--one of his most heavenly 12-string riffs. "Lover of the Bayou" features a heavily echoed McGuinn vocal and a strong harmonica backing, plus great guitar interplay between McGuinn and Clarence White--ferocious! Then there are two quiet, acoustic songs with Gene Parsons's vocals that are the real sleepers here--"Willin'" and "Yesterday's Train." The latter has an understated vocal so achingly beautiful that all the song's wistful longing comes through. And the acoustic version of "Kathleen's Song" has a similar fragile beauty. All in all, 22 minutes of unreleased studio cuts than are as strong as anything on the original album. As for the live performances, a great "Jesus is Just Alright"--it's about time a live version is now available. And the arrangement of "Ballad of Easy Rider" is far superior to the studio version, with lovely bitter-sweet harmonies at the end. From a double album to a double CD--and every bit worthy of the name. One of the greatest Byrds albums, now even more awe-inspiring.

5.0 out of 5 stars superb April 23, 2001
Format:Audio CD
"Untitled" is by far my favorite Byrds lp, regardless of what era of the band it was. There are many reasons for this- mainly being that the countrified Byrds of McGuinn/White/Battin/Parsons was the most stable lineup of the band, and with it produced numbers that ROCKED harder than anything they had ever done.
Disc one opens with live material, with obligitory Dylan numbers, the country/rocked out glory of "Nashville West," showcasing the late Clarence White's amazing guitar work, and the blissful 16 minute workout of "Eight Miles High"- proving that when they were inspired, the Byrds could flex their solo muscles and go with it. The studio material offer many wonderful nuggets, such as the McGuinn classic "Chestnut Mare," the Parsons/Battin's religiously based "Yesterday's Train," Leadbelly's "Take a Whiff on Me," sung by White, and White's wonderful take on Lowell George's beautiful "Truck Stop Girl."
The beauty of a whole cd worth of unissued material is more than enough reason to get this gem of a re-release. It showcases the wonderful democracy (or as close as McGuinn would allow it to be) of the band at this point, and with it, the immense talents of all 4 members. Highlights include the studio version of McGuinn's "Lover of the Bayou," Parson's cover of Lowell George's "Willin," and White's "White's Lightning Pt.2," part of a studio jam. Also included are more live tracks including "Jesus Is Just Alright," soon to be the Doobie Brothers' breakout hit.
Many people regard this lp as the last great Byrds lp. This is debatable, of course (I feel "Last Time Around" is a brilliant, if tired, effort), but what is clear is the absolute brillaince of this lineup.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Byrd's fly smoothly on last true classic May 1, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Turmoil. It ain't easy when you're band breaks up one-by-one. First the band's best songwriter Gene Clark left during the recording of the third album (leaving behind his classic "Eight Miles High" which McGuinn modified for his spectacular guitar parts). Then David Crosby left amid hard feelings even (at the time) accusing McGuinn & Hillman of taking his name off the credits of some of the songs. Finally, after the band made the transition to country rock (and had just added the hedonistic Gram Parsons to their line up)Hillman left with Parsons to found The Flying Burrito Brothers. Thank God for Clarence White and his spectacular playing as White's brilliant playing (Hendrix was among his admirers)nicely compliments McGuinn's and the duo bring many of the classic Byrds tunes to life on teh live album. His playing is a highlight here as well. White had appeared as a session musician on "Sweetheart of the Rodeo" and also appeared on a Gene Clark's early country-rock solo albums. He had been a bluegrass star from his early teens and his playing is truly amazing comparable to other icons of the time (Hendrix, Beck, Clapton) in its complexity but also in its creativity.

"(Untitled/Unissued)" is the last complete masterpiece from The Byrds. The first half of the expanded CD (which was the first album when it was released on vinyl in 1970)featured a stunning live set from the band including the new McGuinn-Levy classic "Lover of the Bayou" and concluding with a stunning, rambling jam that filled up an entire LP side with "Eight Miles High". In between the new line up more than distinguishes itself as a powerful live band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent December 24, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The original "Untitled" was a landmark album, showcasing the latter-era Byrds at their best; although some of the studio tracks were less than stunning, the live tracks reaffirmed McGuinn's assertion that the Clarence White-era Byrds were the best live Byrds lineup. With the addition of a disc full of previously unreleased material, a great album has become even better. The studio version of "Lover of the Bayou" is superb, although it is vastly different from the live version, as is the excellent studio rendition of "Willin'", a staple in the band's live repertoire. The added live tracks are also great, with the legendary Clarence White in fine form throughout. The hidden track is a stunning a cappella version of "Amazing Grace", which confirms that this lineup was capable of stunning vocal harmonies. In all, this set is a bargain, and will please old and new fans alike.

"Unititled" was Roger McGuinn's triumph. He had made the Byrds relevant again, and he did it largely on the strength of his own songs. Read more
