CANDY Original Soundtrack released on CD

The CANDY Original Soundtrack has been released on CD on the Reel Time label.

It features a radically different version of The Byrds' "Child Of The Universe", a song from the band's "Dr Byrds & Mr Hyde" LP.

Strangely, the song "Candy" (written especially for the movie by Roger McGuinn and John York) does not appear on the movie soundtrack.

Byrds live recording from December 1967 has just surfaced after 45 years!

An unofficial recording of a Byrds performance at the Winterland, San Francisco, on December 9, 1967 has surfaced yesterday.

The lineup is the trio of Roger McGuinn, Chris Hillman and Michael Clarke.

A true find, and adding to the surprise is a 5:25 long version of "Milestones", an instrumental which has long been the Holy Grail for Byrds completists. It is sandwiched between "My Back Pages" and "Eight Miles High", a place that would soon be filled by "B.J. Blues" in later concerts.
