THIS ITEM IS CURRENTLY BEING REPRESSED. WE ANTICIPATE NEW STOCK SHORTLY.
After the enormous success of Mr. Tambourine
Man, sold out concerts and massive television appearances, The Byrds developed
rather quickly into a very in uential band along the lines of The Beatles, The
Beach Boys and The Roll- ing Stones. Spearheaded by founding member Roger
McGuinn, The Byrds for over a decade continued to be a major recording entity
and delivered over a dozen of the nest classic rock albums of our time.
With the turbulent sixties in full bloom, The
Byrds (Roger McGuinn, David Crosby, Gene Clark, Chris Hillman and Mi- chael
Clarke) embarked on a second LP session with producer Terry Melcher and
delivered the classic Turn! Turn! Turn!. With a whole new audience developing
from their recent radio and retail exposure, this masterwork hit the upper
rungs of the album charts and brought the band continued acclaim. The LP
consisted of some of their most memorable songs including the blockbuster #1
single Pete Seeger’s Turn! Turn! Turn! (To Everything There Is a Season). The
hit album also treated the fans to some newer Byrds favorites like Gene Clark’s
brilliant Set You Free This Time and Roger McGuinn’s classic It Won’t Be Wrong
as well as two more Bob Dylan interpretations The Times They Are A-Changin’ and
Lay Down Your Weary Tune, plus more Byrds originals like the Crosby/McGuinn
smash Wait and See.
Featuring the legendary twelve string guitar
and vocals of Roger McGuinn, the soulful voice and guitar of David Crosby, the
thundering bass and vocals of Chris Hillman, the sorely missed guitar and
vocals of the late great Gene Clark and the powerful drumming of the late
Michael Clarke, The Byrds’ Turn! Turn! Turn! was a global hit album. To this
day it is consistently recognized as one of the nest efforts in their deep catalog
of hit recordings.
In an effort to continually offer consummate
music lovers with the greatest rock recordings of all time, Friday Music
proudly presents for the rst time ever on 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl, the
