Months and months after being announced, this DVD has finally become available from some outlets.
The Byrds – The Lost Broadcasts
Roger McGuinn, Clarence White, Gene Parsons, Skip Battin, Jimmi Seiter
Lost Broadcasts are a series of DVD
sets featuring performances that have rarely been seen since the original
transmission on german television, in some cases more than forty years ago.
The Byrds first
session from the 19th of May 1971 featured newer material including Chestnut
Mare from the band’s critically well received album Untitled
alongside the classic songs So You Want To Be A Rock ‘N’ Roll Star, Mr
Tambourine Man and Eight Miles
High. The second session comes from October 1972 and they perform three
versions of Black Mountain Rag and
two versions of So You Want To Be A Rock ‘N’ Roll Star.
