With the recruitment of Gram Parsons the Byrds go the whole country hog. There's no irony here, it is done with the utmost sincerity, and is also a lot of fun. Roger Mcguinn takes most of the lead vocals as a lot of Parsons' singing was erased just before release. As for the music itself, even though the Byrds are now rootin' tootin' cowboys, there's still room for a couple of the obligatory Bob Dylan covers in, you ain't goin' nowhere, and, nothing was delivered. The highlights include, the Christian life, one hundred years from now, and Parsons' timeless, hickory wind. After the departure of Parsons just before a tour of South Africa, The Byrds would dispense with the country music(although there still would be the odd country number on future albums), but the importance of this LP cannot be understated. Country rock is born.

This is one of my favorite Byrds albums, and the songs, and the quality of their playing their instruments, makes this
one of the the best Byrds albums, and still is today. Their crossover to county wasn't liked by all, but sure is miles
above some of the country you hear today. This music will stand the test of time, and be forever outstanding.

The Byrds try to sing country, and, it turns out, they aren't very good at it. Only "Nothing was Delivered" sounds like the Byrds and "You're Still On My Mind" was the only other enjoyable song on it.

It's all right. I mean, not being a big fan of country (at least Western country, anyway), it's not really enjoyable. But I liked the fusion they create here with the addition of Parsons, I prefer earlier Byrds however.

An amazing album (unless you're a Byrds fan). Gram Parsons joined the Byrds and managed to completely change their sound and do a rock record heavily influenced by country.
Unfortunately, this visionary album was before it's time and was alienated by both rock and country audiences.

This is the roots of country and rock fusion, and it's damn good and easily to obsess over. The Highlight Track is "You Ain't Going Nowhere," written by Bob Dylan.

Gram Parsons helped make this the most consistent Byrds album. Hearing this in 1968 must have alienated more fan than it made.

Gram Parsons is a great addition. Was modern country born on this album?
