24kt Gold Plated Disc

Jim McGuinn (guitar, vocals)

With (on “Mr. Tambourine Man” and on “I Knew I’d Want You” only) Hal Blaine, Larry Knechtel (Lawrence Knechtel), Bill Pitman (William Pitman), Leon Russell (Claude Russell Bridges) and Jerry Cole (Jerry Kolbrak).

Journals is a 9 CD (4 double CDs and 1 single CD) set housed in a 12” x 12” golden metallic box.

The Byrds in the Columbia studios, playing and singing multiple versions of tracks from their first 3 albums (“Mr. Tambourine Man”, “Turn Turn Turn” and “Fifth Dimension”) and of tracks from these sessions that weren’t officially released until the remastered CDs came out in the 90s.

Vol. 9 is a compilation of tracks from the 8 other CDs.

A further double CD, titled “Lost Studio Series”, was later released by another label, with all known outtakes not on this 9 CD box. It also contained outtakes from the 4th LP (“Younger Than Yesterday”) and a couple of other oddities from the same era. It was posted here some time ago.

Ladies and gentlemen, sit down and relax. You are now in the control room at Columbia studios, and standing next to you is producer Terry Melcher. Enjoy!

Re-ups / Downloads

Why would some people ask for reups and then fail to download the reupped files, is beyond me.

Considering how time consuming running this blog is, new requests for reups won't be fulfilled as long as the previously reupped files haven't been downloaded.


Thank you.
