McGuinn's album picks

Posted: Thursday, January 31, 2008

We asked Roger McGuinn: "What five recordings by the Byrds or from your solo career would you recommend?"

Here are the ones he picked:

"Younger Than Yesterday" (The Byrds): Includes such songs as "So You Want To Be a Rock 'N' Roll Star," "Have You Seen Her Face" and "Renaissance Fair."

"The Notorious Byrd Brothers" (The Byrds): One of the band's most adventurous, with McGuinn becoming one of the first rock musicians to use a synthesizer.

"Cardiff Rose" (Solo): Includes some fine originals ("Jolly Roger" and "Partners in Crime").

"Back From Rio" (Solo): This excellent album from 1991, dates back to a 1987 European tour that McGuinn took with Dylan and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.

"The Folk Den Project" (Solo): An excellent introduction to folk music in general.
