First time I've heard this, and it's pretty good. York's voice would have gone well with the later Byrds if he'd have stayed on, and his songwriting might have been more appropriate for the group than Skip Battin's (although all we have is Fido--not exactly a masterpiece). The selection of songs is good, with a few Byrds songs and others, many presumably by York (don't know which ones). Patrick Brayer's accompaniment adds much to the performances, though York plays guitar pretty well himself. Despite being a member of the Byrds, York never really made a mark musically, but he was a talented musician who deserves a little more appreciation. The sound quality is very good. I'm probably the only one who will comment on this concert, so thanks R--B for providing it.

I dare to say you are in (good) company, as this concert is definitely good and anyway it's always interesting to have another piece of the past available thanks to ROCKING BYRD!
