Scarce Japanese First Pressing In Beautiful Condition! Heavy Grade Cover Includes Insert With Lyrics In English & Japanese. The Second Byrds Album Features Roger McGuinn, David Crosby, Chris Hillman, Michael Clarke & Gene Clark.
Crosby Was Fired Mid-Way Through The Creation Of The LP, Due To His Radical Opinions & Unreliability At The Time. (The Band Denied That The Front Cover Was Intended To Show Crosby Replaced By A Horse!) However, The Album Is Very Cohesive, Ethereal & Progressive, Praised As One Of Their Finest Works!
*Issued in U.S. in 1968, ‘The Notorious Byrd Brothers’ LP wasn’t released in Japan until 1970.
Condition – Vinyl: NEAR MINT! Appears to have hardly ever been played!!
Condition – Cover: EXCELLENT! So well preserved for over 53 years!
Japanese vinyl pressings are highly sought after by audiophiles and collectors, due to their premium sound quality and beautifully presented packaging. The sonic quality of Japanese records is regarded as the best in the world. No wonder all the original Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab records were pressed in Japan! The covers are printed on better quality heavy stock paper too. Near Mint original Japanese pressings are becoming scarcer ~ therefore more collectable and valuable every year.
