Been listening to a lot of this music today, It's amazing how good this music still sounds. Nice little trip down memory lane, as I listened to this when it first came out, guess I'm showing my age, but nevertheless this music still holds it's own quite well. You know 66 to 71 really was my favorite era of music (yeah I more into "rock and roll" than "rocK', always have been), don't think any era as done beter. Just about anybody worth a sh*t is still trying to sound like they came from that era (think Grace Potter, the lastest dTb, Susan T., ect). Music really did "Hit the Note" back then. And all the good artists are still trying to "lock in" to that groove. I'm glad that I was there when it was first happened.

I listened to my Byrds 78 min. CD-R last night. The music is just as fresh as the day it was released. Crosby's harmonies, Hillman's bass, Gene, Roger, Micheral Clarke. Fantastic combo. Great songs. I saw the original lineup in '65. They sounded just like the album.

The Byrds were undoubtedly the finest American band during the era of the British Invasion. They were able to embrace all the various kinds of music that was popular back in the mid 60s from Folk to folk rock to country, to psychedelia and even early electronica. THE NOTORIOUS BYRDS BROTHERS that was made at the end of 1967 is a psychedelic masterpiece. Of course SWEETHEART OF THE RODEO was a country rock classic. The various LPs that followed SWEETHEART were just as good, and followed in its footsteps. On THE BALLAD OF EASY RIDER, Roger McGuinn used moog synthesizer to good measure.

Both of these bands are favorites of mine but the Buffalo Springfield had such a short run. The Byrds however ... This is the music of my youth (and it has carried through to my current 'older-youth' period )

Such great talent in both Bands. Stephen Stills, Neil Young, Richie Furay, and Jim Messina were all in the Springfield. Chris Hillman, Roger McGuinn, David Crosby, and Gene Clark were talented as well.

Parts of both bands were together in Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young, Manassas (Stills and Hillman) and the Souther-Hillman-Furay band (Furay and Hillman).

Mcguinn's Back From Rio from the 80's is very true to the Byrds sound.

I don't know if it is on the same subject, but Chris Hillman's Desert Rose Band was very good. Sort of a modern day Byrd's country sound.

i always thought that it was a shame that only the original 5 byrds were inducted into the r&r hof and not the later members also. imho white, parsons, parsons, battin, york and kelly contributed just as much to the byrds legacy as the original quintet.

byrds of a feather.....


l to r: doug dillard, gene clark, gram parsons, michael clarke, richie furay (sitting), jon corneal, rusty young, chris hillman, sneaky pete kleinow, gene parsons, clarence white

If you look at some of the online photos of the group HOURGLASS (Gregg and Duane Allman's mid 60s pop band) you can tell how much the Buffalo Springfield inspired their appearance. I bet the music went down with some BS inspiration as well!
