THE BYRDS BOXED SET

1990

Roger McGuinn, David Crosby, Chris Hillman, John Jorgenson, Stan Lynch, Al Kooper

get the story

  
He Was A Friend Of Mine  (McGuinn) From A Distance  (J.Gold)
Paths Of Victory  (Dylan) Love That Never Dies  (McGuinn/Lynch)


McGuinn tells the story:
Sony Music said "Well, would you guys be willing to do some new tracks?", so we went to Nashville and Crosby and Hillman were there, and we did a couple of songs together, then it was time to do my song, that Stan Lynch and I had written together called "Love That Never Dies" right? So Crosby and Hillman bug out. They said "Well you guys can handle it." [laughter] So Stan Lynch, John Jorgenson and myself were the Byrds for that song. There are no other Byrds on that song.
