Armadillo World Headquarters Austin TX 1979

The McGuinn, Clark & Hillman project came when the three founding members of The Byrds undertook a triple-bill tour with their respective solo bands in Europe in 1977. The subsequent reunion two years later was felt to be an extension of what the original band had accomplished -- and no disco lick from their latest album could dilute it. Their legendary appearance together at the famed Armadillo World Headquarters in Austin, Texas, on May 22, 1979, survives as one of only a handful of FM broadcasts that capture the pivotal essence of the legendary Byrds. The return of Gene Clark alongside Chris Hillman and Roger McGuinn was a profound chapter in the later careers of these seminal figures who choose to showcase their new album in true Byrds fashion with a glorious smattering of classics from The Byrds songbook. Air Cuts proudly presents the entire original broadcast in professionally remastered sound with background liners and rare archival photos.
