Ironically, MCH sounded better live than on CD. Stripped of the late 70s production, MCH was a much better group, as this and other recordings testify. The sound quality is irregular, but that's no problem for those who appreciate the music. Thanks for the post.

Completely agree with you Steve. For me , the 1st MCH album is unlistenable; total garbage production, especially after being fortunate to see McGuinn & Clark a number of times before the lp came out. I'll agree they were better live than the lp, but I never liked Greg Thomas as a drummer: to me he was way too "Busy" for a Byrds-band drummer.For what it's worth, I didn't like Jim Gordon's stuff on "Notorious..." for the same reason. The best stuff they did live was when they had George Grantham playing with them, just 4 piece. If you can find shows with him, those are the best MCH shows, at least in my opinion , to get. Thanks to RB for letting us voice our opinion on this fine site !

I agree with David about the MCH line-up that featured George Grantham on drums. You probably already know that he was the drummer with Poco for many years, off and on, before he was sidelined by a stroke. He also contributed fine high harmony vocals to MCH during this period as well. Another thing that I really enjoy hearing during the four-piece period is McGuinn's lead guitar playing, which took such a back seat after Johnne Sambataro was added to the group (no disrespect intended toward Sambataro or his abilities, but I just love the sound of the Rickenbacker 12-string). I personally thought that Jim Gordon's playing on "The Notorious Byrd Brothers" was phenomenal, though, in my own humble opinion.

Thanks for this show, RB.

Isn't it a bit slow? Gene's voice sounds too low (and too slow).
