Roger McGuinn in Belgium - July 19, 2009

Roger McGuinn played the Peer Rhythm And Blues Festival in Belgium yesterday (July 19, 2009).

The artists were (in no particular appearing order): Jeff Beck, Dereck Trucks, John Mayall, South Side Johnny, Roger McCuinn, Steve Winwood, Joe Bonamassa, Rod Piazza, Liz Haley & The Zydekatsflyers, Lightnin' Guy & the Mighty Gators, Boo Boo Davis...

We couldn't make it, but here's what a visitor from the Netherlands has to say:

Roger McGuinn was to me the highlight of the festival. This very sympathetic man brought us back to the 60s, with his typical jangling 12-string guitar sound and his soft high-pitched voice. The Byrds, but also a brilliant solo carreer. Turn Turn Turn, Mr Tambourine Man, You Ain't Going Nowhere, Pretty Boyd Floyd, Chesnut Mare and all those other fantastic songs. Seeing and hearing this man only was worth the trip to Peer.

Watch it here

Thanks to Arthur for the picture and the review

Byrds Flyght Will Soon Sell Its Byrds Collection

Byrds Flyght will soon start parting with its huge collection of Byrds and Byrds-related items (records, reel-to-reel tapes, cassette tapes, CDs, CDRs, DVD, DVDrs, VHS video tapes, posters, books, magazines, etc…).

As far as records and CDs are concerned, we have a near-complete collection of every Byrds album release (official and unofficial) as well as every solo or group album release by the 11 ex-members and every participation by the 11 ex-members in other artists’ albums (except for recordings by and with David Crosby – we only have a few by him). We also have many 7’’ singles and E.P.s. Most of what we have can be viewed on Byrds Flyght’s pages.

So now is the time to get this rare item that you’ve been searching for for decades. Send an e-mail to Byrds Flyght at

with details of what you’re looking for, as well as the maximum price (including shipping) you’re willing to pay to get it. No funny low prices please. Serious offers only.

We will answer every e-mail, but of course we often have one copy only of each item. So don’t be disappointed if the answer is negative. If so, it’s either because the item has already been sold or because your offer doesn’t reach our own estimated value price. In the latter case, we will tell you so and give you a second chance to make a higher offer.
