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.

The Byrds lineups:

I had to re-tag the tracks as the makers of this CD mistagged this item as being Vince Neil’s “Carved In Stone” CD. Seems they didn’t see or hear the difference between music and noise.
