Description

When the Byrds cut the two songs featured on Live In Holland 1971 they may have been nearing the end of the trail, but this totally revamped Byrds lineup had plenty of firepower left in their mighty arsenal. Byrds vocalist/12-string legend Roger McGuinn--along with guitar whiz Clarence White, bassist Skip Battin and drummer Gene Parsons--sound better than ever sailing through muscular renditions of new Byrds fave (and Dr. John tribute) "Lover Of The Bayou."

Making at least its third appearance in the Byrds' recorded canon, "You Ain't Goin' Nowhere" is their rockingest version yet of the Dylan chestnut. McGuinn's vocals, spurred by Clarence White's joyous guitar, sound positively buoyant here.

McGuinn admits he kept the name of the legendary Los Angeles combo intact for the sake of his old pal (and new fretboard foil). "Clarence White always wanted to be in the Byrds ... and now he had his chance," says McGuinn.
