The Byrds – Tambourines And Twelvestrings – The Best Of Live In Concert

The Byrds – Tambourines And Twelvestrings – The Best Of Live In Concert

Living Legend LLRCD 067 (Italy 1990)

Jim / Roger McGuinn, David Crosby, Michael Clarke, Chris Hillman, Clarence White, John York, Gene Parsons, Skip Battin

The artwork wrongly states that all the concerts took place in the USA 1969-1970. Tracks 9, 10 and 11 are from Stockholm February 1967 and the Monterey Pop Festival June 1967, hence the mistakes in the participating musicians (David Crosby, Michael Clarke, Chris Hillman and John York are not mentioned on the artwork).

1. Jesus Is Just Alright (3:44)
2. Tulsa Country (3:25)
3. He Was A Friend Of Mine (2:51)
4. Mr. Spaceman (3:01)
5. Lay Lady Lay (3:19)
6. The Ballad Of Easy Rider (2:37)
7. It's All Over Now, Baby Blue (4:01)
8. Way Behind The Sun (2:44)
9. Mr. Tambourine Man (2:31)
10. Hey Joe (3:07)
11. So You Want To Be A Rock 'n' Roll Star (2:18)
12. I Shall Be Released (2:59)
13. My Back Pages (5:28)
14. Lover Of The Bayou (4:18)
15. This Wheel's On Fire (7:18)
16. Eight Miles High (12:35)

Yes, the artwork has it wrong, only the last five tracks are from the Battin group. All the other non-Stockholm tracks are by the John York Byrds, and they sound like a rough version of either the Boston Tea Party gig or the Avalon Ballroom one, or maybe both. I like the concerts of the York-era Byrds and it's nice to hear what's around. Jesus is Just Alright sounds moody and less frenetic than the later versions. An interesting mix for an album. Thanks.
