The Byrds scored several hits in their early days with their Bob Dylan–inspired folk-rock, but the group's devotees know The Byrds hit their stride as musicians during the post–Gram Parsons period. Sure, they didn’t top the charts with any more jingle-jangle hits like “Mr. Tambourine Man” or "Turn! Turn! Turn!" And as The Byrds evolved, Roger McGuinn’s 12-string guitar often took a back seat to the innovative B-bending Telecaster of six-string deity Clarence White. Here, this is immediately apparent with his pedal-steel approximations in the opening live version of “Love of the Bayou,” as White bends and slides all over McGuinn’s arpeggios as if he had six fingers on his left hand. Setlist: The Very Best of The Byrds curates the band’s most impressive live performances recorded between 1970 and 1971. In this nearly 16-minute version of “Eight Miles High,” McGuinn’s guitar playing returns to the forefront and we can really hear how John Coltrane’s modal notes on the saxophone inspired McGuinn's leads—more so than on the studio version.
