As for me I am a known hardcore Byrds fan and I really dig this recording as it proves there was life in them right up to the end. Okay, Citizen Kane is not anyone's fave Byrdsong but there is a good version of Tiffany Queen and once again Clarence White proves he is the C&W answer to Hendrix. Which I mean from the bottom of my bluegrass heart.
One further niggle: Hold It, their set closer, was not written by Unknown as stated on this CD's credits but was in fact a number three (!) R&B hit for Bill Doggett in 1958. As Doggett is relatively well-known for his immortal hit Honky Tonk Part 1 one might think it was no trouble to find out the authors of Hold It are listed at PPL as "Scott/Butler". I only hope the Byrds and Messers. Scott and Butler get their royalties as this release seems in the grey area between legality and bootleg.
I've always enjoyed The Byrds 70's output (Untitled, Byrdmaniax & Father Along), the band struck a good balance between rock, country & Bluegrass, which McGuinn & Co performs successfully at this concert.
Recorded in Washington, which gives the gig a more edgy/political atmosphere, in front of musically knowledgeable student crowd (there're not just here to hear the hits).
Highlights for me is an acoustic/harmonica version of "Mr Tambourine Man" closer to Dylan's original & "8 miles high" which has a great-extended funky intro.
So a great social snap shot of time, just a shame about the sound.
