Many years ago I bought the original two LP set titled simply Untitled. Ir was the last major album from The Byrds. By this point Roger McGuinn was the only original member left. He was generous, letting other group members write and sing many of the songs. The problem was that none of them was very distinctive as a vocalist. The live tracks that open the original album, now CD one, give Clarence White an opportunity to shine on guitar and Lover Of the Bayou is great swamp music. The minus is an endless, almost totally instrumental Eight Miles High that seems to go on forever. I once saw McGuinn play a ten minute live version with Richard Thompson on second acoustic guitar and it was spectacular. Not so this turkey: it gets about eight inches high. Some of the studio stuff is good; Chestnut Mare and Hungry Planet are Byrd classics. Most of the rest is just adequate. The bonus CD adds more studio outtakes and live cuts. The studio stuff is OK; the live material is better than what was on the original set and much superior to Live At The Fillmore West 1969. All in all, I think this double CD shows off the McGuinn-White Byrds well enough to serve as an anthology of that era.
