The Best Of The Byrds: Greatest Hits Vol. 2
by The Byrds
Released: Nov 1972
A funny thing happened on the way to the '70s. The Byrds became the Beards. They loosened up, and their jingle jangle electric folk-pop passed through Gram Parsons, landing smack-dab in the middle of peaceful easy canyon country. "Chestnut Mare" is a romantic metaphorical narrative, and the late, great Clarence White bends that B-string all over this awesome compilation.
