By Lozarithm VINE VOICE on 13 Jun. 2007
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Since the extensive remastering project of the Byrds' entire Columbia catalogue that begun to appear in the shops in 1996, Sweetheart Of The Radio is the only Byrds CD to have been subsequently revised and expanded into this 2CD Legacy Edition. This says something of the importance and stature that this album has gradually acquired over the four decades since its release, to the point that it could be argued to be their most important release. Ironically, when released in 1968 it was widely reviled and nearly brought about the destruction of what was left of the band. Half of them had left during the recordings of the previous album, Notorious Byrd Brothers, leaving only Roger McGuinn and Chris Hillman from the original line-up.

Even the magnificent single You Ain't Going Nowhere (with a safer B-side, Artificial Energy, drawn from Notorious Byrd Brothers) faltered at no. 74 in the US charts and did hardly any better in the UK, just nudging the Top Fifty; this despite being one of their famous interpretations of a new Dylan song, culled, like the album closer Nothing Was Delivered, from the unreleased Basement Tapes. Its follow up, Pretty Boy Floyd/I Am A Pilgrim, sunk without trace.

The new members were drummer Kevin Kelley and singer-guitarist Gram Parsons, fresh from the International Submarine Band, and it was his love of country music, widely regarded at the time to be the exclusive provenance of Southern rednecks, that had led to the startling new direction of the band - a fusion of rock music, country, bluegrass, Southern soul (filtered through William Bell and Otis Redding) and folk - at a time when country rock had not previously existed.

At a masterpiece
thats right
the amazing album(with its companion bonus disc)
brings all the flow of the original album to you in detail
First of
the glourius sound quality!
You hear it right from the first track, as lloyd greens pedal steel guitar get that perfect overwhelming guitar sound while the acoustic guitar, shimmering.. clearly like never before
As for the harmonys.. how they should be.. really strikinly.. to the word all clear.. and all together well its neatly surrounding it all neatly
drums and cymbals smack neatly and the banjo and mandolin on the cd sounds surprisingly crispy and really adds to the greatness of the disc.. and no one can deny the fiddle playing.. giving it a jumping.. but yet warm sound.
that being said.. just about the soundquality of the disc
It is one amazing album on its own.. especially now when chris hillmans tasty mandolin stands clearer and greater than ever.
(the mandonlin, as fasinating Instrument that we would not hear much of on a byrd album after this until the reuinion album 1973)
the certain flow this album has never lacks in feeling.. and really, all the song on it are done sucessfully
and for those who doubt it beacuse of what might find "boring drumming" (which is not at boring really, but done with extreme touch) just listen to the high hitting and smashing feel on track such as the dylan track "nothing was delivered" and the gram parsons penned "one hundred years from now"
Life in prison is swingin, hickory wind, being grams from the heart full of feeling number.

Sweetheart Of The Rodeo must have been considered a major change in direction back in 1968. Roger Mcguinn Was a major follower of Bob Dylan from the early 1960s and covered many Dylan songs. I am convinced Dylans interest in country music was also a contribution to the change of direction to The Byrds sound and music.
Gram Parsons came into the Byrds at a time when rock music was changing again, psychedelic music was no longer the same, folk was also changing, country was where the major singer/songwriters were getting into at the time.
Johnny Cash had several huge albums and had influenced Dylan as a friend and musician.
What I love about this album is the huge influence Gram Parsons had. He sadly was not in the band for long but left some great songs that hold up today better than they were considered back in 1968.
What we have in this 2CD set is some very groundbreaking music that began what some people call country rock. I prefer to just call it great music that has a strong country influence by a group of brilliant musicians.

A must get set if you are seriously into good music.
