Music of the day

David Crosby, Roger McGuinn, and Chris Hillman — three original members of The Byrds—get together at the Roy Orbison tribute concert and sound fantastic performing classic hits Turn!Turn!Turn! and Mr. Tambourine Man. They totally rock the house when Bob Dylan joins them for the second song. The songs are available as part of The Byrds’ CD box set. Watch this and be reminded why they are all in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Music of the day

The Beach Boys doing one of my all-time favorite songs, and a remarkable rendition with just the five of them on The Ed Sullivan Show. Though I wonder… did the cameras never show supporting musicians? Later, their touring bands got to be enormous and must have cost a small fortune.

The Beach Boys — Do It Again — 1968
