Update: I had to remove the link, because, unfortunately, my original source for this recording strongly opposes and objects to making it available to the world. Don't blame me; I'm as disappointed as you are.

Am I missing the link somewhere? This looks great, I hope it is for real and not a late April Fools joke.

Wow! This looks like a real find! I wonder how the sound quality compares to the other couple of recordings that exist by this particular line-up? Can't wait for the link! Thanks, by the way, for all of the terrific music that winds up here, Rocking--Byrd. I don't comment on everything that I listen to but I really do appreciate your efforts and the opportunity to hear things that all of us "byrds of a feather" have an ear for!

Certainly looks interesting, but without the link we will never know....

good thing all the generous collectors who shared tapes and contributed to this and other Byrds sites don't feel the same as this fellow. what a shame; looks like a great show from an unrepresented Byrds period.

too bad the source has decided not to let you share this. looks fascinating ! maybe he will , hopefully, have a change of mind at some point, as there's so little Parsons-Kelly Byrds stuff available.
keep up the great work.

Such a shame. Maybe one day soon...?

What a shame, is right. This looks like an incredible set. To blog followers, I recommend the Byrds' set at the Piper Club in Rome, also on this Rocking-Byrd site, featuring the same line up in a truncated version of the same set. To Rocking-Byrd, thank you for posting such great stuff.
