    Any Byrds fans out there? Get the latest Uncut magazine. Its got a nice feature on the 64-68 period and a free CD of Byrdsian inspired stuff (Edwyn Collins, Replacements, Coal Porters etc).
    Makes me wanna track down those early LPs right now!

    I am!

    Roger Mcguinn was one of rock musics big inventors, Folk Rock, Psycedelica and Country Rock.

    I'm a little strange in that I think the 'Dr Byrds & Mr Hyde' is the best album. Particulary the closing medley. Typically then that the reviewers think different...

    The Byrds were all-round good guys, always very listenable. My fave tracks by them would be Hickory Wind and Eight Miles High.
    I would also take the opportunity to recommend a quite stunning album by Gene Clark and Carla Olson from the late 80s called 'So Rebellious a Lover'. It's long out of print so expect to pay around £25 on ebay, but it's well worth it! If you think you don't like country music this record might just change your mind! Ace!!
