The Byrds Ballad Of Easy Rider limited edition 180-gram LP

Mastered by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios with Kevin Gray and pressed at RTI

After a huge number of hit singles, top charting albums, concert tours and international television appearances, The Byrds developed into a very influential band along the lines of The Beatles, The Beach Boys and The Rolling Stones. Spearheaded by their founder Roger McGuinn, The Byrds continued to be a major recording entity and delivered over a dozen of the finest classic rock albums in their decade together of making legendary music.

With the close of the turbulent 1960s dawning, The Byrds reunited once again with their original producer Terry Melcher (Mr. Tambourine Man/Turn, Turn, Turn) and delivered the classic Ballad Of Easy Rider. This masterwork hit the Top 30 album charts and brought the band continued acclaim. The LP consisted of some of their most memorable songs like the aforementioned hippie anthem "Ballad of Easy Rider," which also received tons of exposure thanks to being featured as the title song to the Jack Nicholson/Peter Fonda motion picture Easy Rider. The album also treated the listener to some Byrds favorites like" Jesus Is Just Alright," "Oil In My Lamp," "Fido" and a revisit to the Bob Dylan catalog with their hit interpretation of "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue."

In addition to the brilliant rock and roll classics contained on this stunning release, to celebrate this limited edition album, Friday is also including a first time gatefold cover which features the original artwork from the 1969 release as well as some very rare photos from The Byrds archives at Columbia Records. Also included is a poly lined sleeve to protect your vinyl and a poly bag to keep your album cover in mint condition.

A really wonderful, surprising remaster. This is one of my favorite, perhaps my favorite Byrds releases; I have the original 1969 release and would never have guessed there was so much sound in the original tapes. One of the best remasterings I have had the pleasure of purchasing.
