The Byrds – San Juan Capistrano 1989-01-04




A visitor asked for a reupload of this concert. It made me notice that out of the 3 "reunion" concerts they did in January 1989, only the first one (this one) was posted on this blog. So this is a reup with complete artwork added, and it will be followed by both performances in San Diego (Jan 5) and Ventura (Jan 6). All 3 are audience recordings.
