About this album


As a true fan of Byrds-music I was often a little disappointed with the solo efforts of Roger McGuinn, because the musicians who played on his albums did not always seem to understand where he comes from, or they didn’t tune in to his music. This album is the exception: the chemistry works really well here, having such helpers as Tom Petty, Elvis Costello and Dave Stewart on his side. Superb production combines with jangling guitar work, majestic vocal harmonies and a well chosen bunch of songs: „King Of The Hill“ is a true classic and would sound great on any Byrds record. Still it has to be pointed out, that production becomes the major artform here, because that band never went out on the road to play. It’s sort of a „virtual“ Byrds-album so-to-speak, but a great one. Welcome back, „phantom“ Jim McGuinn!

P.S. The German cover is much more tasteful than that of the American
issue: it seems to be trendy today to make a mockery out of certain
flower children…
