Those of you that made it along to out Box of Records event will have witnessed Steve treating us to some of his 45’s.
We convinced him (it didn’t take much) to curate September’s event, where he treated us to an evening based around The Byrds.
We had a good mix of tunes, including the work of individual members of the group, especially Gene Clark and Gram Parsons.
Thanks to everyone that also brought their Byrds related tunes along to add to the evening’s musical offering.
After a spell in The Byrds, Gram Parsons went off to do his own thing, and this was his second solo album. Solo, except it had a great supporting cast, includung Emmylou Harris who sings on practically all the tracks.
“The best record ever made” according to Steve who looked after us on our Byrds night.
“You can’t have a Byrds night without playing some of their of their best known hits”.
We also got one of the best Byrds covers – Eight Miles High by Husker Du.
