Description
The Byrds pull no punches kicking off their fifth album, 1968's The Notorious Byrd Brothers, with "Artificial Energy," a devastating haymaker aimed at the go-fast generation. In the blink of an eye, they're into the most beautiful baroque folk-rock ever created, the Carole King/Gerry Goffin-penned "Goin' Back." It was the song that caused David Crosby to leave the band (witness the empty horse stall on the cover photo) an odd reaction, considering most of Notorious was layered with a phased and eerie deep-space vibe that seemed to come from another galaxy. "Space Odyssey" is the perfect post-film mint for Stanley Kubrick's intergalactic thriller 2001: A Space Odyssey. The heartbreak of "Draft Morning" says plenty about being eligible for conscription during the Vietnam War, while "Wasn't Born To Follow" was a perfect fit for silver screen epic Easy Rider, whose main characters were based directly on McGuinn and Crosby. Insanely rare and 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. -SUNDAZED.COM
