Performer Notes
  • The Byrds: Roger McGuinn, Chris Hillman, David Crosby, Michael Clarke.
  • Reissue producer: Bob Irwin.
  • Includes liner notes by David Fricke and Johnny Rogan.
  • Building on the maturity of their previous effort YOUNGER THAN YESTERDAY, the Byrds delivered a suite of songs that naturally flow into one another with uncanny ease. It is one of the few vinyl releases where both sides would always be played, and 30 years later it begs to be heard uninterrupted--played individually, the songs lose their power. This was an artistic triumph and a commercial disappointment, as the memory of Crosby faded only to be replaced (allegedly) by a horse on the album sleeve. The Byrds moved on to their country phase and numerous line-ups but they were never to sound so perfect again.

Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (12/11/03, p.136) - Ranked #171 in Rolling Stone's "The 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time"

Rolling Stone (9/2/99, p.117) - 4 1/2 stars (out of 5) - "...exhibits [their] overt country leanings....[evoking] hope and uncertainty, familiarity and daunting strangeness. Those combinations make [NOTORIOUS] a brilliant window onto an unforgettable place and time."

Entertainment Weekly (4/4/97, pp.81-82) - "...finally captures the album's spatial wistfulness and is recommended for fans of the strings-and-things indie rock of Eric Matthews..." - Rating: A

Uncut (9/01, p.94) - "...Seamless, multi-textured and remarkably coherent given the fractious circumstances of its recording, THE NOTORIOUS BYRD BROTHERS is a fascinating portrait of a band at the height of its powers..."

Blender (Magazine) (p.82) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]hey seemed to be surging forward, experimenting with electronic psychedelia and country, and paying tribute to nature and the nascent hippie culture."

Simon on
Created without Dave Crosby, the cover suggests a sound from the Wild West, this album could definitely be seen as a steeping stone from the 60s psych to the 70s country folk rock sound. Despite this, and the collision of technology (Moog and slide guitars!) this is cohesive and has some great songs, full of Byrdsian melody. As good an album as they have ever done.
