    Fun In Frisco

    Live At The Avalon Ballroom - San Francisco, CA - On November 1st and 2nd, 1968


    The Byrds performances across the weekend of the 1st and 2nd November 1968 at the Avalon Ballroom in San Francisco were performed at a time of great change and uncertainty for the band. Gram Parsons, who had joined a faltering line up in early '68, had departed prior to a disastrous tour of South Africa for which McGuinn notably had received much criticism. The country rock album they had recorded with Gram, Sweetheart of the Rodeo, alienated many Byrds fans and equally attracted hostility from the traditional country music community. It remains their poorest performing record, despite its status in later years as the first proper country-rock album. Clarence White (Guitar) and Gene Parsons (Drums - no relation) were both brought in around this time, but then Chris Hillman quit! The Avalon show was the gig first performed by the line-up of McGuinn, White, Gene Parsons and new recruit John York on bass and harmony vocals (very apparent on this recording), who had only been a Byrd for about a week at the time of this show.

    Burrito Deluxe

    Gram Parsons had a habit of taking over whatever band he happened to be working with, and on the first three albums on which he appeared - the International Submarine Band's Safe at Home, the Byrds' Sweetheart of the Rodeo, and the Flying Burrito Brothers' The Gilded Palace of Sin - he became the focal point, regardless of the talent of his compatriots. Burrito Deluxe (1970), the Burritos' second album, is unique in Parsons' repertoire in that it's the only album where he seems to have deliberately stepped back to make more room for others.


    The album includes songs like Cody, Cody, and Older Guys. It also contains the first issued version of the song Wild Horses, released almost a year before its appearance on Sticky Fingers by The Rolling Stones. The band sounds tight and they play with genuine enthusiasm. Burrito Deluxe is certainly better than your average Country-Rock album.

    Sweetheart Of The Rodeo

    Pressed On Limited Edition 180 Gram Translucent Gold Vinyl


    Gatefold Cover


    Sweetheart of the Rodeo is the sixth album by American rock band The Byrds and was originally released on August 30, 1968 on Columbia Records. Recorded with the addition of country rock pioneer Gram Parsons, it was influential as the first major country rock album by an established act and represented a stylistic move away from the psychedelic rock of the band's previous LP, The Notorious Byrd Brothers. The Byrds had occasionally experimented with country music on their four previous albums, but Sweetheart of the Rodeo represented their fullest immersion into the genre thus far. The album was also responsible for bringing Gram Parsons, who had joined The Byrds prior to the recording of the album, to the attention of a mainstream rock audience for the first time. Thus, the album can be seen as an important chapter in Parsons' personal and musical crusade to make country music fashionable for a young audience.

    Sanctuary IV

    First time on vinyl for all tracks! Annotation by Byrds' Roger McGuinn, Chris Hillman and Kevin Kelley!


    The Sanctuary spotlight shifts with volume IV to the Nashville sessions for the Byrds' landmark 1968 album Sweetheart of the Rodeo. Spurred on by new member Gram Parsons, formerly of the International Submarine Band, the Byrds traveled to Nashville to fashion the innovative country/rock blend that's been part of American culture ever since. Sanctuary IV collects all of Parsons' vocal takes for the first time, as well as other outtakes and rehearsals which document the creation of an album unlike any other.

    Now Is The Time For Hearts & Flowers

    Though they are often only referred to in passing, as a sort of footnote of '60s West Coast scene, Los Angeles group Hearts And Flowers were actually one of the most eclectic groups of the time, incorporating elements of psych and country into their folk-rock sound. Founded by Larry Murray, a southern transplant to LA, and a graduate of the same vibrant Southern California bluegrass scene that gave way to Byrds and Burritos, the group's 1967 debut, Now Is The Time For Hearts And Flowers, is a classic album that deserves mention in the same breath as Sweetheart Of The Rodeo or Bradley's Barn. Reissued on 180g vinyl in a deluxe tip-on jacket from 4 Men With Beards.
