DEAD LINKS

NOTE : DEAD LINKS
We'd like to thank everyone for preventing us of dead links. For the moment, we are note able to re-up them.

Feel free to keep on preventing us of those dead links. We will update them when we (I and Jeb-E-Diah) have more time to (understand : from september). Some of them will be partially or completely repacked considering albums which would have been issued thereafter and surely with new and improved artworks.

Stay tuned !

THE BYRDS (ABO #294)

THE BYRDS
EIGHT MILES HIGH:
ANTHOLOGY OF A POP LEGEND (1965-1973)

Hey there. Hope you like the new header...
So... Today, after the industrial music of Einsturzende Neubautent, the (free) jazz of Magma's Christian Vander, the classical minimalism of Steve Reich, the ambient art of Mr. Brian Eno, the French pop/chanson of Alain Souchon, the oh so sweet soul/funk of the dearly missed Isaac Ayes, the electronic music of Art of Noise and the ethno-disco of a Voyage comes the pop/psych/country-folk extravangaza The Byrds' career has been.
Yeah, we do indeed love music in its most various forms and we'll continue to display such diversity as long as Baistophe's will live (and, once again, your suggestions and own compilations are welcomed).
As for the Byrds, I feel it's unnecessary to introduce them as they are one of the most influencial acts of the American sixties' scene. A great band that gave us plenty of good music that anyone not yet familiar with should try, now!










My BYRDS Top Three
1 - Fifth Dimension (1966)
2 - Sweetheart of the Rodeo (1968)
3 - Mr. Tambourine Man (1965)

My BYRDS Bottom Three
1 - Byrdmaniax (1971)
2 - The Byrds (1973)
3 - Dr. Byrds and Mr. Hyde (1969)

(it has to be noted that, with the notable exception of "Byrdmaniax," all Byrds' albums are worth your attention)

RIYL:
Buffalo Springfield, The Beau Brummels, Love

Love the Byrds. Hate "Chestnut Mare" and always have. Probably has to be included in a Baistophe, and that's okay. Well, not really.

Love you guys anyway!
