BYRD PARTS 2 (More Oddities, Curios, Rarities & Essentials by members of the Byrds, alone and together – 1962-1986) RVCD-165


The 1998 release of Raven’s Byrd Parts was greeted with considerable joy by the Byrds collector community. The painstakingly compiled 24 track CD brought together Oddities, Curios, Rarities & Essentials by members of the Byrds, alone and together, 1964-1980. Inviting buyers to nominate inclusions, Raven has prepared a second volume even more enticing than the first. This edition, spanning 1962-1986, includes rare and precious recordings by the Byrds as the Jet Set, the young David Crosby alone and with Les Baxter’s Balladeers, Gene Clark with Chip Douglas, the Flying Burrito Bros, Roger McGuinn and Textones, the (70s) Byrds with Earl Scruggs, Jim McGuinn with Hoyt Axton, Judy Collins and the City Surfers, Gram Parsons with Delaney & Bonnie, Clarence White with Johnny Darrell and the Everly Brothers, an unissued McGuinn film song, and more.
