    Byrd At The Gate

    To a great many people, the name of Charlie Byrd and the updated samba beat known as bossa nova will always be intertwined. The guitarist did play a most important role in the introduction into this country of the compelling Brazilian rhythm-first on that major hit with Stan Getz and then on his own Bossa Nova Pelos Passaros. But before, during, and after the craze, Byrd was capable of much more-a remarkable impoviser and a richly versatile in-person performer. This 1963 live session at a celebrated New York club, the Village Gate, offers a little South American flavor and a lot of other jazz elements, including the guest appearance of trumpet great Clark Terry.

    Younger Than Yesterday

    Ranked 124/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    'Younger Than Yesterday' is The Byrds' fourth album and was originally released in 1967.


    As on its predecessor, the album features elements of psychedelic rock like experimenting with new musical textures, including brass instruments and reverse tape effects.


    On the other hand the first country and western influences can be found on the album, being early indicators of the country rock direction the band would pursue on their later albums.
    Nowadays 'Younger Than Yesterday' is considered one of The Byrds' finest albums.

    The Byrds Greatest Hits

    The Byrds' Greatest Hits is the first greatest hits album by American rock band The Byrds and was released in August 1967. It is the top-selling album in The Byrds' catalogue as it provides a summary of The Byrds' history during Gene Clark and David Crosby's tenure with the band and also functions as a survey of the group's hit singles from 1965 to 1967, a period when the band had its greatest amount of success on the singles chart.


    From classics such as Mr. Tambourine Man, Turn! Turn! Turn! (To Everything There Is A Season) and Eight Miles High these are chiming timeless songs that will fill your heart with warmth.

    Sweetheart Of The Rodeo

    Ranked 117/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    With one mighty swing of the axe, the Byrds changed not only the face of rock 'n' roll but country music, as well, with their sixth album, 1968's Sweetheart Of The Rodeo. Tired of dipping a toe into the genre, Roger McGuinn and Chris Hillman added singer Gram Parsons and drummer Kevin Kelley and went for total immersion. The baptism of country-rock was a natural with Parsons, former International Submarine Band frontman, now on board. And the repertoire was wide open for country classics by the Louvin Brothers (The Christian Life) and Merle Haggard (Life In Prison), as well as Depression-era ballads (Woody Guthrie's Pretty Boy Floyd) and honky tonk weepers cut by George Jones (You're Still On My Mind). The town wasn't big enough for both of them, of course, and Parsons soon split to form the Flying Burrito Brothers, but it sure was nice while it lasted!


    We're proud to present the reissue of this monumental recording in its original, stereo incarnation, cut directly from the original Columbia Recordings analog stereo masters, with perfect artwork restoration and meticulously faithful mastering.

    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.

    The Byrds were truly a gift to rock music fans all over the world. There will never be another collective of superstar talent like The Byrds. Their amazing sound and membership is of legendary proportion, as it truly was shown in 1966 with their brilliant third album Fifth Dimension.
    Jam packed with 11 classic rock champions like Eight Miles High, Mr. Spaceman, I See You, Hey Joe and of course the smash title track, Fifth Dimension, making this one of the most important albums ever in classic rock. With the lead vocals and unmistakable 12 string guitar work of Roger McGuinn, the musicianship and lead vocal work of the legendary David Crosby, the solid bass playing and lead vocal work of Chris Hillman, along with the stellar lead vocals of Gene Clark and the hipster Michael Clarke on drums, all of these ingredients made The Byrds a force to reckon with like no other. Cultivating their folk and rock influences into psychedelic electric treasures, their music will forever stand the test of time.

    Fifth Dimension (MONO)

    By 1966, the Byrds had powered up like a mammoth Atlas rocket boosting Astronauts into orbit around the Earth, with their third album, Fifth Dimension. This amped-up new soundimmediately dubbed raga-rock due to the Byrds newfound fascination with the music of Ravi Shankar and John Coltraneis best exemplified by Eight Miles High, yet another national pop smash, and 5D (Fifth Dimension), both swirling, multi-hued masses of sonic energy on an interplanetary scale. 5D is tethered to a generation newly interested in LSD mind-trips, while Eight Miles High details the Byrds' first transcontinental flight to the United Kingdom. Folk-rock, always a Byrds staple, appears in the luscious form of Wild Mountain Tyme and John Riley. Hey Joe, soon to become a standard of shaggy-haired garage rock nation, is a standout, while Mr. Spaceman, a brilliant, humorous blend of deep space and country-rock also scaled the national charts.


    Unavailable for over 40 years, we're proud to present the first ever reissue of this monumental recording in its original, highly-sought-after mono incarnation, cut directly from the original Columbia Recordings analog mono masters, with perfect artwork restoration and meticulously faithful mastering.

    The Columbia Singles '67

    When Mr. Tambourine Man first rumbled out of car radio speakers in 1965, it was a pivotal moment in pop history. With its jangling 12-string and epic sweep, it was the dawn of a new day: the birth of folk-rock.
    And the Byrds were just getting started. The next two years saw one hit after another, from the Biblical prophesies of Turn, Turn, Turn to the raga-rock of Eight Miles High, from the exotic orchestration of So You Want To Be A Rock 'N' Roll Star to the Byrds bringing it all back home with My Back Pages.
    Here they are again, 30 landmark recordings in their perfectly constructed, radio-friendly mono mixes: the forgotten rarities, withdrawn singles and, of course, all the original A and B-sides. No one has ever had a stronger run of singles than did the Byrds in their prime. No one.

    Ballad Of Easy Rider

    Mastered by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios with Kevin Gray & Pressed at RTI!




    After a huge number of hit singles, top charting albums, concert tours and international television appearances, The Byrds developed into a very influential band along the lines of The Beatles, The Beach Boys and The Rolling Stones. Spearheaded by their founder Roger McGuinn, The Byrds continued to be a major recording entity and delivered over a dozen of the finest classic rock albums in their decade together of making legendary music.



    With the close of the turbulent '60s dawning, The Byrds reunited once again with their original producer Terry Melcher (Mr. Tambourine Man/Turn, Turn, Turn) and delivered the classic Ballad Of Easy Rider. With a whole new audience developing from their college concert tours and the beginning of the powerful FM radio coverage, this masterwork hit the top thirty album charts and brought the band continued acclaim.



    The LP consisted of some of their most memorable songs like the aforementioned hippie anthem Ballad of Easy Rider, which also received tons of exposure thanks to being featured as the title song to the Jack Nicholson/Peter Fonda motion picture Easy Rider. The album also treated the listener to some Byrds favorites like Jesus Is Just Alright, Oil In My Lamp, Fido and a revisit to the Bob Dylan catalog with their hit interpretation of It's All Over Now, Baby Blue.



    Featuring the legendary twelve string guitar and lead vocals of Roger McGuinn, the sorely missed lead guitar and vocals of the late great Clarence White, the powerful drum and vocals of Gene Parsons, and the solid bass and vocals of John York, The Byrds' Ballad Of Easy Rider was an all around hit with underground radio, college campuses and traditional radio and retail audiences. This album is consistently recognized as one of the finest efforts in their deep catalog of hit recordings.



    In an effort to continually offer consummate music lovers with the greatest rock recordings of all time, Friday Music proudly presents for the first time ever on 180g audiophile vinyl, the anniversary edition of The Byrds classic Ballad Of Easy Rider. Impeccably mastered from the original Columbia Records tapes by Joe Reagoso (The Byrds, Elvis Presley, Deep Purple) at Friday Music Studios with Kevin Gray, Ballad Of Easy Rider also continues the second release in the extensive The Byrds/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series.



    In addition to the brilliant rock and roll classics contained on this stunning release, to celebrate this limited edition album, Friday is also including a first time gatefold cover which features the original artwork from the 1969 release as well as some very rare photos from The Byrds archives at Columbia Records. Also included is a poly lined sleeve to protect your vinyl and a poly bag to keep your album cover in mint condition.

    Two Sides To Every Story

    Two Sides To Every Story, the criminally long out-of-print solo album from founding Byrds member, Gene Clark, finally returns to vinyl. 35 years after its initial 1977 release on RSO, High Moon Records re-mastered, 180-gram audiophile vinyl LP is presented in stunningly rich and crisp audio fidelity that will shed new light on this underrated, beautifully-crafted Gene Clark classic. The album was produced by Thomas Jefferson Kaye, producer of Clark's masterpiece, No Other, and features an all-star cast of musical co-conspirators: singer Emmylou Harris, banjo-virtuoso Douglas Dillard (The Byrds, Dillard & Clark), Country violin legend Byron Berline, guitarist Jeff Skunk Baxter (Doobie Brothers, Steely Dan, Joni Mitchell), and pedal-steel ace Al Perkins (Flying Burrito Brothers, Bob Dylan, Rolling Stones). Gene Clark served as The Byrds chief songwriter in the mid-sixties, penning some of their most essential songs, including Feel a Whole Lot Better, Eight Miles High and You Showed Me.


    Clark's inimitable songwriting and singing continue to inspire and influenced countless artists. Among them: Robert Plant and Alison Krauss (who recorded TWO of his compositions on their 2010 Grammy® winning Album Of The Year, Raising Sand ), Bob Dylan, Fairport Convention, REM, Tom Petty, Yo La Tengo, the Flamin' Groovies, Teenage Fanclub, and Wilco.

    White Light

    After playing in various teenage groups, Gene Clark was offered a place in the sprawling New Christy Minstrels in late 1963. He stayed long enough to contribute to two albums, Merry Christmas and Land Of Giants, before returning to Los Angeles, where he teamed up with Jim (Roger) McGuinn and David Crosby in the Jet Set. This fledgling trio evolved into the Byrds. At that point Clark was the leading songwriter in the group and contributed significantly to their first two albums.


    As founding member of folk-rock pioneers the Byrds, Gene Clark had emerged as a uniquely gifted singer/songwriter and master of the minor key melancholy ballad. His departure from the group in 1966 was met with critical anticipation and commercial indifference. Tiring of the Hollywood fast lane by 1969, Gene and new wife Carlie moved up to Mendocino on the Northern California coast where the tranquility, pastoral beauty and laid back lifestyle of the coastal community appealed to his country boy roots. It inspired a body of songs unlike anything Gene had composed before. Their stark simplicity and stripped down arrangements, acoustic guitar, harmonica and voice, evidence a deeper insight into life and an overall optimism rarely found in his previous body of work.


    The resulting album, White Light, produced by renown guitarist Jesse Ed Davis, remains one of Gene's most accessible and much-loved recordings among fans and critics, topping several domestic Best Album of the Year lists and being voted Album of the Year by rock critics in the Netherlands. Songs like For A Spanish Guitar, With Tomorrow and Where My Love Lies Asleep are delicately evocative while the title song draws on Gene's appreciation for country music. One In A Hundred harkens back to his finest Byrds compositions.


    Buoyed by his new surroundings, friendships, marriage, a feeling of contentment in his rural retreat and the imminent birth of his first child, White Light reveals singer/songwriter Gene Clark at the top of his game. Rolling Stone declared the folk-based album a fresh and innovative look at what came before in a new framework. One of the most interesting and exciting records of 1971. Relive that excitement on this Sundazed edition! Mastered directly from the original A&M analog session tapes on high-definition vinyl.

    The Preflyte Sessions

    Before turning rock 'n' roll on its ear in the spring of '65, the Byrds spent countless hours creating and refining their unique sound at LA's World Pacific Studios. Hear history literally in the making as McGuinn, Crosby, Clark, Hillman and Clarke record newborn, spine-tingling versions of classics-to-be like Mr. Tambourine Man, You Won't Have To Cry, I Knew I'd Want You, and Here Without You, as well as lost gems such as The Reason Why, Tomorrow Is A Long Ways Away, and You Showed Me. (later a smash for the Turtles).


    This is the most comprehensive collection of the Byrds' pre-Columbia recordings ever assembled. The double High-Definition Vinyl LP Preflyte Sessions set is filled with 40 World Pacific Studio recordings circa 1964 and '65; tracks include all cuts found on the original Together-label Preflyte album, plus unissued and alternate versions from both the acoustic and electric Byrds' sessions, early David Crosby demo recordings, and the rare pre-Byrds Jet Set recording of The Only Girl I Adore.


    The Preflyte Sessions features a historical essay by Rolling Stone Senior Editor David Fricke -based on new interviews with Roger McGuinn, Chris Hillman, original Byrds' manager Jim Dickson and others present at the sessions, and is handsomely adorned with an absolute wealth of previously unpublished photos by Jim Dickson and legendary rock photographer Barry Feinstein. The Byrds' Preflyte Sessions captures the newly-kindled fire and enthusiasm of one of the most legendary and influential groups of all time.

    Now heavily influenced by the earth-shaking creations of two master musicians -John Coltrane and Ravi Shankar-the Byrds began recording their new single, Eight Miles High and Why, along with tracks for their upcoming album Fifth Dimension at Columbia Studios in Hollywood. Growing more confident by the day in their studio acumen and songwriting skills, the Byrds logged long nights of hypnotic in-studio jamming, then hammered the white-hot magma into songs that will live forever. McGuinn's solos soared as never before, his technique now fusing the familiar, melodic overtones of the Rickenbacker 12-string with a powerfully new staccato dissonance absorbed from the majestic saxophone of John Coltrane. Michael Clarke's drumming never sounded better, his Elvin Jones-like cymbal splashes and rolling-tom thunder driving the band like an atomic generator approaching critical mass. Chris Hillman's swooping bass lines took on a McCartney-esque timbre that filled in every corner of the canvas with bold, melodic strokes. But it was perhaps David Crosby, playing in a brashly percussive way no one had ever heard before from a rhythm guitarist, who best digested and interpreted the Eastern influences of the day: the ragas and talas of Ravi Shankar. Crosby's contribution to Fifth Dimensionwas as outspoken and defiant as the man, himself. Acreative zenith in the Byrds' career, these fascinating sessions deserve closer scrutiny than they've previously been afforded. Alternate instrumental takes and extended experimental workouts give essential insight here into the songs' final versions. Also included are early versions of songs before the addition of any studio sweetening-strings, percussion or sound effects. To top things off, we've included a small handful of unique finds that give a fly-on-the-wall glimpse into the creation of one of the most important records of our time.

    Brazilian Byrd (Pure Pleasure)

    The arrangements by Tommy Newsom for strings, brass, and woodwinds may be a bit sweet and the 12 performances may be overly concise (often under three minutes), but the resulting music is strangely pleasing. Acoustic guitarist Charlie Byrd always had a strong affinity for Brazilian jazz, and he sticks exclusively to Antonio Carlos Jobim songs during this tasteful and melodic effort. Truly beautiful music.



    Musicians:



    • Charlie Byrd (guitar) & with strings, brass & woodwinds




    Recording: 1965

    Production: Teo Macero



    About Pure Pleasure



    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Pure Pleasure all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existent tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasize that Pure Pleasure Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    Dr. Byrds & Mr. Hyde

    A key transitional touchstone in The Byrds' fabled canon, 1969's Dr. Byrds & Mr. Hyde
    was the next stop in the band's pioneering country-rock trajectory and the first album by
    the post-Gram Parsons lineup. With leader Roger McGuinn at the helm of a stellar new
    edition of the band featuring guitar god Clarence White, drummer Gene Parsons, and
    bassist John York, Dr. Byrds & Mr. Hyde sees The Byrds bridging the gap between the
    psychedelic flights of the group's mid-'60s albums and the down-home, country-based
    style developed only months earlier with Sweetheart of the Rodeo.


    In addition to containing strong McGuinn originals (King Apathy III, Old Blue),
    more of the band's beloved interpretations of Bob Dylan classics (This Wheel's on Fire
    and a medley blending The Bard's My Back Pages' with Jimmy Reed's Baby, What You
    Want Me to Do), and even a Gram Parsons collaboration (the bemusing Drug Store
    Truck Drivin' Man, which cleverly celebrates The Byrds' love of country music while
    simultaneously taking a dig at small-minded rednecks), Dr. Byrds & Mr. Hyde also boasts
    two tracks composed by McGuinn for the obscure, racy '60s cult movie Candy.


    Mastered from the original Columbia Records analog master reels, Sundazed's exact
    reproduction of the original LP will have Byrdmaniacs everywhere soaring to high heaven!

    The Sanctuary spotlight shifts with volume IV to the Nashville sessions for the Byrds' landmark 1968 album Sweetheart of the Rodeo.

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.
