Love this song (and the Byrds).

Tom Petty does a good version of this, also.

Me too! And the Eight Miles High on Untitled is pretty sweet, too. And the Byrds always did such justice to Dylan - a couple of their Dylan covers on this one, too.

It's always great to see Byrds topics here.

Untitled is a great album, was quite an ambitios project as it was a double-LP. Reminds me of Cream's WHEELS OF FIRE, which was also half studio and half live.

My favorite studio cuts are CHESTNUT MARE, JUST A SEASON, YOU ALL LOOK ALIKE, Leadbelly's TAKE A WHIFF ON ME. Also a early Lowell George tune TRUCK STOP GIRL, which appeared on Little Feat's debut LP.

The centerpiece of the album is definitely EIGHT MILES HIGH. In 1970 many bands were jamming, and extending the limits, past the 3 minute song. This was the Byrds' attempt at hipness, and they sure do succeed. Clarence White, Skip Battin and Gene Parsons were great musicians, and this is where they shine. I dig the bass and drum solo!!

Wow, thanks for posting this. It brings back a lot of memories from my first musical experiences. I heard this album and specifically "Lover of the Bayou" for the first time when I was nine or ten. Up until then I had listened to mostly pop and folk rock. "Lover of the Bayou" and "Alabama" by Neil Young were the first songs that I really listened to that had any balls. I used to put that side on just to hear the electricity of the "LOTB" opening. - great vocals too. Man I can remember sititing there with the headphones, thinking - oh so this is what they mean.

Byrds did have some amazing vocals. I think anybody you get David Crosby singing harmonies with you the vocal side of things is gonna turn out pretty great.

Great thread! I love these music threads that remind me of a passion ... will be pulling this one out tonight for some listening time.

I guess this could go in the other thread, but I met Roger Mcguinn at a solo gig in Dallas 1981, he was a great guy to talk to, very friendly.

Very cool photo. He also invented the String Bender with Gene Parsons (not Gram) the drummer for the Byrds during that period.

Jimmy Page used the String Bender a lot for a while there.....he uses it on the ARMS concert DVD. Had a very cool sound. Clarence White could make it sound almost exactly like a pedal steel.
