Description

    With one mighty swing of the axe, the Byrds changed not only the face of rock 'n' roll but country music, as well, with their sixth album, 1968's 'Sweetheart Of The Rodeo.'

    Tired of dipping a toe into the genre, Roger McGuinn and Chris Hillman added singer Gram Parsons and drummer Kevin Kelley and went for total immersion. The baptism of country-rock was a natural with Parsons, former International Submarine Band frontman, now on board.

    And the repertoire was wide open for country classics by the Louvin Brothers ("The Christian Life") and Merle Haggard ("Life In Prison"), as well as Depression-era ballads (Woody Guthrie's "Pretty Boy Floyd") and honky tonk weepers cut by George Jones ("You're Still On My Mind").

    The town wasn't big enough for both of them, of course, and Parsons soon split to form the Flying Burrito Brothers, but it sure was nice while it lasted!

    Amidst a demand for iconic records and resurgence of vinyl sales comes the "Classic Album" series, a 2CD product line focused on the jewels of the Sony Music catalogue.

    We are taking the critically acclaimed Legacy Edition versions of these albums, many out of print, and creating high quality mini vinyl replicas, similar to the much-loved Japanese paper sleeves. 2CD gatefold digi-pack, Black polycarbonate discs (to mimic vinyl look), Booklet, Obi strip, Inner CD wallets, Plastic outer sleeve
