Album artwork for Live in Rome 1968 by The Byrds

This LP helps answer one of rock's great what ifs. What if Gram Parsons had stayed with the Byrds? Given how few gigs this line-up played, it is lucky that Dutch and Italian radio recorded this May 1968 show live in Rome. Founder Roger McGuinn and newbie Parsons both sing lead, and the result is a fascinating set of "Cosmic American Music". As an added bonus included here are two further Bob Dylan covers from TV program Playboy After Dark, recorded in September 1968 after Gram had left the band but still true to his vision.
