The Byrds – Monterey International Pop Festival (one song)

The Byrds – Monterey International Pop Festival (one song)

Jim McGuinn, David Crosby, Michael Clarke, Chris Hillman

50 years ago today (June 17, 1967), The Byrds performed 8 tracks at the Monterey International Pop Festival:

1. Renaissance Fair
2. Have You Seen Her Face?
3. Hey Joe (Where You Gonna Go)
4. He Was A friend Of Mine
5. Lady Friend
6. Chimes Of Freedom
7. I Know My Rider (I Know You Rider)
8. So You Want To Be A Rock ‘n’ Roll Star

All tracks were officially released, except for track 7. Legend has it that a noisy plane flew over the festival ground when that track was played, and that the resulting sound was horrible.

Now you can judge by yourselves, as here’s track 7 (in comments):



  2. Thanks a lot! I've been looking for this one. Do you know if other audience recordings from Monterey exist?

  4. Rocking-Byrd:
