Does anyone know of, recall The Byrds reunion (McGuinn, Crosby, Hillman) with Bob Dylan in 1990? Has there ever been a video/DVD release of this? Two songs; "Mr. Tambourine Man" (with Dylan) and "Turn, Turn, Turn" were released on CD on The Byrds first box set in 1990 (Columbia/Legacy label). The credit notes in the box set booklet states that these two songs were taken from a Roy Orbison tribute concert in 1990. If I'm not mistaken, this concert was originally from a Cinemax Sessions cable show, I think. The box set booklet also has pics of this show. SO, does anybody out there have any info on this? It's driving me nuts trying to find a video/film documentation of this show! Why wouldn't something as important like this be released? This is like the lost final chapter or epilogue in The Byrds story. I think even the The Byrds first box set is out of print now. These fantastic live versions of these two songs were never released on any other format. Help a Byrd fanatic find the Byrds lost treasure! Thanks

7 & 7 IS says:
I remember watching it several times-my brother-in-law recorded it on VHS and gave me a copy-now a mass of mildew, location unknown.
I recall after they played Crosby approached Dylan from behind and punched him in the arm and Dylan turned around and punched him right back, but harder.
I think it was issued as a bootleg Dvd a few years back as "Bob Dylan Live Transmissions: Part One."But never officially.
I thought The Byrds also did 'He Was A Friend of Mine' on it as well.

I have that one on DVD, courtesy of my local bootlegger. It's a nicely produced compilation which includes all of the Byrds live TV broadcasts including the TNT show (their best live performance IMO). I'm grateful for the bootleggers...without them, none of this stuff would be available. They forced the hands of the big record companies (e.g. Capitol and Columbia) into releasing previously unavailable Dylan/Beatles/Byrds recordings which would NEVER have seen the light of day without them.
