The Byrds, untitled...the band that started it all...this is also the photo I used to have up on my newly formatted Facebook page - called Timeline. Most people don't like that, but this is not about Facebook. The Byrds are/were one of the most important bands ever. I don't think new bands can really attain important-ness. This album is referred to as Untitled, their 9th, it was released in 1970 on Columbia. It is a double album, but s not a DLA, because the first disc is live recordings from some early 1970's performances in New York City, but the second disk is studio recordings. That is an odd format. Genesis had 3 sides live. This album was the first official release of any live recordings by the band as well as the first appearance on a Byrds' record of new member Skip Battin, who replaced the band's earlier bass player John York. The studio disc is has songs by lead Roger McGuinn and a Broadway theater director Jacques Levy, they had some idea to try to do a country rock musical, but that never go off the ground, so those songs ended up here. The single "Chestnut Mare" and b/w "Just a Season", was released in the U.S. in October 1970 and reached #121 (wow!) on the Billboard chart. Side two has one song on it - Eight Miles High, at all of 16 minutes.
