This live broadcast recording is a marvelous showcase for the talents of four of the prime movers in one of America's most popular groups. Roger McGuinn, Gene Clark and Chris Hillman - and their star guest this evening, David Crosby - were all leading lights in what was really the USA's version of The Beatles, The Byrds. During this unique performance, at San Francisco's intimate Boarding House, each of the main trio is given a chance to shine in a solo spotlight before reuniting for some great reprises of Byrds classics. The ensemble is further bolstered by the welcome addition of David Crosby in an eight song tour-de-force to close a legendary show. Roger, Gene and Chris were frequent collaborators around this time, coupling intermittent live performances with studio albums, McGuinn, Clark & Hillman (1979) and City (1980). They also had a minor hit single with the infectious Don't You Write Her Off in 1979. The late Byrds founder-member, Gene Clark kicks off this evening's proceedings with a sterling rendition of the starkly beautiful Silver Raven, from his best-known solo album, No Other, released in 1974. Before turning over the stage to Chris Hillman, he also essays, Release Me Girl, a fine song co-written with collaborator, and producer, Thomas Jefferson Kaye. For his own turn centre-stage Hillman chooses to highlight two tracks that were originally included on the double-album, Manassas, which he recorded with Stephen Stills in 1972, Bound To Fall and It Doesn't Matter. Next up is the one constant member of the ever-changing Byrds line-ups, Roger McGuinn, who plays two songs most closely associated with him personally, Jolly Roger from his excellent 1976 solo album, Cardiff Rose and Ballad Of Easy Rider which was co-written with Bob Dylan. Next, the three principals combine for spell-binding reworkings of the highly evocative Chestnut Mare - originally from The Byrds 1970 double-album, Untitled - Thomas Jefferson Kaye s Crazy Ladies, and Gene Clark and Bernie Leadon's superb Train Leaves Here This Morning (originally written for the 1968 album The Fantastic Expedition of Dillard & Clark). Completing a quartet of masterful musicians, David Crosby joins the others for a tremendous journey through a selection of The Byrds finest moments: their groundbreaking folk-rocking versions of Dylan's Mr. Tambourine Man and You Ain't Going Nowhere, Pete Seeger's Biblical adaptation Turn! Turn! Turn!, the iconic Eight Miles High and (So You Want To Be A) Rock n Roll Star and Gene s glorious Feel A Whole Lot Better. The ensemble also find time for a fine version of the Dylan favourite Knocking On Heaven's Door (originally written for Sam Peckinpah's Pat Garrett soundtrack) and McGuinn's Bye Bye Baby.
