“(Untitled)” by The Byrds - album review

TJR says

Into the seventies they go… with a double album to welcome in the new decade. The first LP includes concert material (the first release of any live Byrds recordings), highlighted by a sixteen-minute rendition of 1966’s “Eight Miles High” that was popular on progressive rock radio. The second disc is a new studio effort. In all, 5 of the 16 tracks had appeared on the previous albums, hence the “b” status. New treasures are virtually non existent on this one, although “Chestnut Mare” is an obvious exception. McGuinn’s got his chiming 12-string Rickenbacker guitar back in action and it’s no co-incidence that the single gave the band their first UK Top 20 hit since their cover of Bob Dylan’s “All I Really Want To Do” way back in September 1965. The song’s spoken verses recount the story of a man’s quest to tame a wild horse, continuing familiar Byrds’ themes of nature and freedom.
