The AMG review is pretty accurate. Roger McGuinn seemed to lose his bearings after shutting down the Byrds. Although he was their leader, he seemed to need someone else to inspire his creativity. On this tracks his signature 12 string electric guitar is noticeably missing. Finally in 1991he turned it looseon Back To Rio, a worthy follow-up to his Byrds work. None of these tacks come from that album. None of the 70s tracks collected here are bad, but that lack that crtain spark, even the couple Byrds remakes. Two of the best are covers of artists like Dylan or Joni Mitchell. I saw Roger about 15 years ago and he was still an engaging performer. .

This is a good collection. Just don't expect it to sound like the Byrds or Roger's later Back From Rio. He downplayed his 12 string sound during this peroid. I'm glad to have it, but I miss the old Byrds jangle. It seems to go in and out of print, so buy it right away if you want it. I saw McGuinn in concert a few years ago, and he can still sing well and does a nice show.
