Avatar 3:29pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@bbyrno: Yes! Cribs live set coming up a bit later in the show!
  3:29pm P-90:

The guys in Yes always say that The Byrds were a big influence in them in their early days, but one their fans never recognize.
  3:30pm Miles:

"Stellar !" ** ( said w my bEst Brando impersonation )

Geez this stuff is fabulous!
  3:31pm bbyrno:

yay! thank you!! your show is the BEST how on earth did you get them?? so cool <3<3<3
Avatar 3:32pm Matt Clarke:

P-90: They did cover "I See You." Maybe a more subtle influence than just having a jangling Rickenbacker guitar.
  3:33pm J&E in Ithaca NY:

This is another one with another version released at same time if not mistaken? A little more stripped down?
Avatar 3:34pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

the bYRdS for those few most crucial years were like a Rawk Miles Davis - riding & driving the changes & evolutions. Bands tend to be like The Beatles, Stones, Who - or bYRdS... They define a specific kind of Kewl - a particular unique harmonic Transcendence both Futuristically streamlined & warm in Tradition...
Avatar 3:35pm Matt Clarke:

J&E: There are a few versions with just Gram singing out there
Avatar 3:35pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@J&E in Ithaca NY: Pretty sure the alternate versions of "Sweetheart..." songs came out later.
  3:35pm J&E in Ithaca NY:

Thanks Matt! That’s the one I was recalling

Here for the Desert Rose Band
  3:35pm Jett:

Love the Byrds, one of my fave groups of all time, all incarnations.
  3:36pm P-90:

Steve Howe said that practically everyone in the late-60s London music scene was smitten by The Byrds. Which is cool because the guys in The Byrds had been smitten by the early-60s London music scene.

Burritos in a sort of tug of war with Keith Richards for Gram Parsons' presence - is my understanding...

  3:47pm Sid Griffin:

Todd, cool show! The Pretty Things and The Action both covered the Hillman-era Byrds a fair bit. Most of the songs on Gilded Palace Of Sin were sped up by producer Larry Marks, hence the Gram/Chris harmonies on Devil In Disguise being a bit Alvin & The Chipmunks. The Byrds' version of Miles Davis' Milestones was said to be quite good by producer Gary Usher but Lord knows where it is now. I would kill to hear it...only heard the little bit on that SongMakers TV special. Play some bluegrass, Todd, how about Chris' band The Hillmen? C'mon!

How about something from the Rice, Rice, Hillman, and Pederson albums of pure bluegrass? Their cover of "Friend of the Devil" is really good.
  3:55pm Kuba:

Hello! Greetings from Poland everyone!

The Boise Yankees! I saw Manhattan Yankees, Staten Island Yankees, and a tiny farm team in Virginia who were the Yankees. Never known about the Boise Yankees. Chuck Conners was in the Angels system as I recall and yes, Todd, I will try to stick with music here. I saw Desert Rose twice, they had a lot more grease live than the rather polished C&W hits they enjoyed.

Morphester. My friend John actually lives on Croxted Road, so next time I’m down that way...

Forgive me for keeping the British end up... The Downliner Sect actually released a ‘country rock’ album in 1965, their second, The Country Sect. I believe I’m right in saying that Gram himself actually acknowledged it as the first country rock record. Do shoot me down if I’m wrong on that.

That Naomi story reminds me of the two owners of the St. Louis team in the ABA, when they were denied entry into the NBA. The owners turned down the 3.3 million buyout and instead got 2% of NBA TV revenue, netting them about 400 million
Avatar 4:35pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@Joe B: Good comp! I read about that in Terry Pluto's history of the ABA: "Loose Balls".

Yeah Matt @ 4:18, "Sky" off the reunion album is a strong cut.

the version of Louisiana Man I saw was on this great ABC tv show called Music Scene ( 1969 one season) hosted by David Steinberg . 10 years After , The Archies, csn&y and of course Charlie Pride all performed live there's also a comedy element in the show & featured lily Tomlin in the cast

I saw Kershaw recently on a Johnny Cash Show rebroadcast. He produced a New Orleans garage 45 in the sixties, though which one escapes me at the moment. I talked to him at the last Ponderosa Stomp...I loved chatting with him though I have no idea what he said!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:04pm JohnEBGood:

Super John was from New Haven Todd! New Providence? Knicks or Celtics ?
  5:05pm Miles:

Well the Archies weren't live they had an animated film but THEN weeks later a gospel choir performed Sugar Sugar live which was amazing
Avatar 5:05pm Ross T.:

I remember Music Scene. I would watch it on the little TV in my parents' bedroom as everyone else was watching whatever on the big one. I remember Sly, Janis, Ten Years After, and all the Sugar Sugar stuff.
  5:06pm Gerry from Miami:

@Creature Boy. No, it wasn't Beach Boy DAVID Marks that produced the first Burritos LP. Any blame for botching the job should be laid at the feet of LARRY Marks.

@todd the flip side of Louisiana Man ," Make Me Realize" sounds like gram or th birds or somethin!

When the Byrds were at Ciro's Sonny Bono showed up with a tape recorder and recorded their set. The Byrds were flattered. A few weeks later Cher but All I Really Want To Do after hearing it in the Byrds set. Ouch! Of course here in England the Byrds version was the hit, not Cher's. Great show tonight, Todd!
