McGuinn: More unreleased Byrds on the way

A 1971 of the Byrds live in London is due out next month on the Sundazed label, and it's just the first of several releases coming from the band's vaults, says Byrds singer-guitarist Roger McGuinn.

“We’ve carried these tapes around for 30-something years,” he said. “We just never paid much attention to them. [Sundazed’s] Bob Irwin came down, and he’s a genius at discerning these things. He could look at a box, and go ‘Oh, this is that, and so-and-so was there, this is wonderful.’”

Irwin has taken further tapes from McGuinn, with a view to further releases. “He’s gonna check them out,” said Roger. “There are tentative plans to put out good things we find, but I’m not sure what.”

You can pre-order The Byrds Live at Royal Albert Hall 1971 from Amazon now.
