The Byrds :: The Ash Grove, Los Angeles, CA – August 22, 1970

"The more you drink, the better you're gonna like us," Roger McGuinn tells the crowd of Angelenos early on during this set. "And the more we drink, the better we're gonna like you..." And indeed, this is a well-lubricated performance, teetering occasionally on the edge of disaster, but generally keeping it together. Barely. If you're looking for the Byrds at their tightest during the group's latter days, take a listen to Untitled or Live at the Royal Albert Hall. But if you want the Byrds at their loosest, rowdiest and most fun, you're . . .
