the byrds byrds

[17] In addition, McGuinn and Hillman have both suggested that with the exception of Gene Clark, the songwriting members of the band were reluctant to bring their strongest compositions to the recording sessions, preferring instead to hold those songs back for their own solo projects. Turn! [59][62] Band biographer Bud Scoppa has remarked that with the album's lackluster chart performance, its lukewarm critical reception, and the high-profile loss of Clark from the group, the Byrds' popularity began to wane at this point and by late 1966, the group had been all but forgotten by the mainstream pop audience.

(To Everything There is a Season))」が発売されたが、これら2曲はバーズのシンボル的な曲となった。, バンドは1964年にロサンゼルスで結成され、それぞれソロ・フォーク歌手やフォークグループに参加し、コーヒー・ハウスやトルバドール・クラブ(en)、ウィスキー・ア・ゴーゴーといったライブ・スポットで演奏活動し、ビートルズの影響でバンド結成を思い立ち集結した。地元のエレクトラ・レコードから「ザ・ビーフィターズ(The Beefeaters」)名義でシングル制作で録音(当時未発表)、ジム・ディクソン(en:Jim Dickson (producer))に注目されデモ・テープを制作している(後の1969年に『プリフライト(Preflyte en』として発売)。, 1966年初頭にはジーン・クラークが脱退、3月14日当時のサイケデリック・ムーブメントを先取りした先進的な楽曲「Eight Miles High」が発表される。この曲は世界初のサイケデリック・ロックとする見方もある。ロジャー・マッギンの12弦ギターの奏でるうねるような不協和音的イントロは、ジョン・コルトレーンの影響を多分に感じさせる。また、ラヴィ・シャンカールなどのインド音楽からの影響もあったことであろう。この作品のインパクトは大きく、いくつかのラジオ局が「ドラッグ体験を連想させる」との理由で放送禁止にした。後のビートルズの『リボルバー』などの作風に大きな影響を与えている。ロジャー・マッギンの12弦ギターは、ジョージ・ハリスンの影響が最も強い。本人も、ビデオなどで述べている。, 1967年アルバム『昨日よりも若く(Younger Than Yesterday en)』は、ゲストにヒュー・マセケラを迎え、コンセプト・アルバムでは先駆的作品の一つだった。評価が分かれた前作アルバム『霧の5次元(Fifth Dimension en)』以降、マッギンの独裁へ主にクロスビーが反発を強め、メンバー間それぞれの不和軋轢へ発展していた。荒れるメンバー間の関係に、折からのヒッピーカルチャーで浮かれる音楽ファンとロックスターを担ぐ音楽ビジネス業界を皮肉り、受け入れられない創作意欲への批判を嘆く厭世的な感傷(「昨日よりも若く」希望を、前進を。)を込めた社会風刺的な内容だった。前作で行ったサイケデリックな楽曲アレンジの先駆は流行になり、関連する実験的音楽、音響効果を最小限に留めフォークロックスタイルに立ち返ったが思索的な詞などは受け入れられず、程なくビートルズのサイケデリック作品『サージェント・ペパーズ・ロンリー・ハーツ・クラブ・バンド』が話題をさらい、脚光を浴びる機会を逸した。, 『名うてのバード兄弟(The Notorious Byrd Brothers en)』は1968年1月15日に発売された。先行して1967年10月20日発売されたシングル「ゴーイン・バック」は、ジェリー・ゴフィンとキャロル・キング の作品で既にダスティ・スプリングフィールドが1966年7月発表した楽曲で、完成が遅れていた『名うてのバード兄弟』へ臨時処置の発売だった。アルバム録音はメンバー間の確執から6月から12月の長期間に渡って収録され、クロスビーは自作曲「Triad」を巡って孤立し楽曲制作の遅れから完成の目途が立たない新作アルバムに場繋ぎとして、この「ゴーイン・バック」カバーでシングル発表することをレーベル側から提案された。一度はバンドとして拒絶し説得に応じスタジオ入りしたのは発売の11日前だった。その後、「ゴーイン・バック」はアルバムへの採用が決まりクロスビーは前後して脱退、楽曲不足にジーン・クラークが招聘され一時的に復帰した。バンドの協調結束力は崩れマッギンのワンマン体制下メンバーチェンジに繋がった。, グラム・パーソンズが唯一参加した『ロデオの恋人(Sweetheart Of The Rodeo)』(1968年)は、ナッシュビルで録音され、サイケデリックな作風から一転、カントリーの要素が色濃く反映されている。アルバム発表後、グラム・パーソンズは、クリス・ヒルマンとともに脱退し、オリジナル・メンバーはロジャー・マッギンただ一人になった。, その後はクラレンス・ホワイトのギターをはじめ、高い演奏能力でカントリー・ロックを聴かせるライブ・バンドとして定着するが、新曲やチャート・アクションとは無縁の状況で惰性的な活動に陥り、マッギンはソロ活動で打開を構想し、活動を非公式に休止した。1973年に突然オリジナル・メンバーで再編し、アサイラム・レコードからアルバムを発表し、新作記念のライブ活動を短期間行ったが、同年中に解散した。, 脱退したメンバーのその後は、ジーン・クラークはソロ活動、デヴィッド・クロスビーはクロスビー、スティルス、ナッシュ&ヤング、クリス・ヒルマンはグラム・パーソンズと共にフライング・ブリトー・ブラザーズを結成している。, Turn, Turn, Turn! [36] Impressed by the group's rendition, Dylan enthusiastically commented, "Wow, man! [233] While in England for an appearance at the Lincoln Folk Festival, the Byrds decamped to CBS Studios in London with engineer Mike Ross and between July 22 and 28, 1971, they recorded an album's worth of new material. The Byrds emerged in 1965 with one of the most identifiable sounds of the 1960s, and proceeded to evolve from folk-rock to psychedelia to country-rock. Gene was one of the original writer/singer guys. [119], The band returned to the studio between November 28 and December 8, 1966 to record their fourth album, Younger Than Yesterday. ", An excerpt from the Byrds' recording of ", A sample of the country-influenced Chris Hillman composition "Time Between", which foreshadowed the Byrds' later exploration of the, An excerpt from the song "Old John Robertson", highlighting the Byrds' extensive use of, "They came over and said that they wanted to throw me out. [3] During concert performances, a combination of poor sound, group illness, ragged musicianship, and the band's notoriously lackluster stage presence, all combined to alienate audiences and served to provoke a merciless castigating of the band in the British press. The Byrds était un groupe rock américain originaire de Los Angeles, Californie. [171][172] McGuinn attempted to counter this criticism by asserting that the tour of South Africa had, in some small way, been an attempt to challenge the country's political status quo and protest against apartheid. [266] Crosby and Hillman were booked to appear at the event separately, but McGuinn, who was not listed on the bill, made a surprise appearance and joined his two former partners on stage. [87][94], On December 22, 1965, the Byrds recorded a new, self-penned composition titled "Eight Miles High" at RCA Studios in Hollywood. [225] The band themselves were publicly critical of the album upon its release, with Gene Parsons referring to it as "Melcher's folly". [21][150] Then, in September, Crosby refused to participate in the recording of the Goffin–King song "Goin' Back",[150] considering it to be inferior to his own "Triad", a controversial song about a ménage à trois that was in direct competition with "Goin' Back" for a place on the album. [67] Despite the success of "Mr. Tambourine Man", the Byrds were reluctant to release another Dylan-penned single, feeling that it was too formulaic, but Columbia Records were insistent, believing that another Dylan cover would result in an instant hit for the group. Turn! [156][160], On March 9, 1968, the band decamped to Columbia's recording studios in Nashville, Tennessee, with Clarence White in tow, to begin the recording sessions for the Sweetheart of the Rodeo album. [185] However the album fared much better in the UK, where it attracted glowing reviews and reached number 15. [142] Crosby felt that the band should rely on self-penned material for their albums, rather than cover songs by other artists and writers. Find album reviews, stream songs, credits and award information for Ultimate Byrds - The Byrds on AllMusic - 1998 - When the four-CD Byrds set was first released in… When the four-CD Byrds set was first released in 1990, it was something of a landmark in Columbia Records' history on several counts. [260] Author Johnny Rogan has stated that most die-hard fans of the Byrds were mortified by the existence of this ersatz version of the group, while Byrds expert Tim Connors has commented that "no chapter in the history of the Byrds caused as much consternation and controversy among fans. [239] Plans for a reunion accelerated in mid-1972, however, when the founder of Asylum Records, David Geffen, offered each of the original band members a sizable amount of money to reform and record an album for his label. [261], The reunion concerts were a resounding success, but with Michael Clarke continuing to tour with his Byrds tribute, McGuinn, Crosby and Hillman filed a lawsuit against the drummer in the spring of 1989, suing him for allegedly false advertising, unfair competition and deceptive trade practices, as well as seeking a preliminary injunction against Clarke's use of the name. [110][111] Clark was subsequently signed by Columbia Records as a solo artist and went on to produce a critically acclaimed but commercially unsuccessful body of work. [209] Plans for the musical had fallen through and as a result, McGuinn decided to record some of the material originally intended for the production with the Byrds. [183] Hillman had become increasingly disenchanted with the Byrds since the South African débâcle,[184] and was also frustrated by business manager Larry Spector's mishandling of the group's finances. [254][255] The trio toured internationally and recorded the albums McGuinn, Clark & Hillman and City. [165] In the album's final running order, Parsons is still featured as lead vocalist on the songs "You're Still on My Mind", "Life in Prison", and "Hickory Wind". [209][210], The latter-day, post-Sweetheart of the Rodeo version of the band, featuring McGuinn and White's dual lead guitar work, toured relentlessly between 1969 and 1972 and was regarded by critics and audiences as much more accomplished in concert than any previous configuration of the Byrds had been. Turn! [98] The title track, "5D (Fifth Dimension)", was released as a single ahead of the album and was, like "Eight Miles High" before it, banned by a number of U.S. radio stations for supposedly featuring lyrics that advocated drug use. [128] Although it received generally positive reviews upon its release, the album was, to a degree, overlooked by the record-buying public and consequently peaked at number 24 on the Billboard chart and number 37 on the UK Albums Chart. [259] Although Clark and Clarke's Byrds tribute group was inactive at the time of this high-profile get-together of McGuinn, Crosby and Hillman, Michael Clarke did mount another tribute tour shortly afterwards, this time featuring former Byrd Skip Battin and newcomers Terry Jones Rogers and Jerry Sorn, under the banner of "The Byrds featuring Michael Clarke". にも。気になる洋楽の日本語の意味がわかります。JASRAC許諾事業 , between June and August 1969, the Byrds était un groupe rock américain originaire de Los Angeles Californie!
