Written by News Bot on September 14, 2020
September 14, 1970: The Byrds released their ninth album, the eponymous album also known as "(Untitled)". The album, a continuation of the country-rock sound The Byrds had been working on since 1968, was a double album, with the first LP featuring live concert recordings from early 1970, and a second disc consisting of new studio recordings. This waa the first official release of any live recordings by the band, as well as the first appearance on a Byrds' record of new bassist Skip Battin, who had replaced John York in late 1969. The album would peak at #30 on the US charts and at #11 in the UK.
