The Byrds: (Untitled); MC5: Back in the U.S.A.; Burning Red Ivanhoe

Richard Williams, Times, The, 12 December 1970

BESIDES BEING ONE of the seminal rock and roll bands, the Byrds also possess perhaps the music's oldest case-history. Of the group which came out of Los Angeles in 1965 having virtually invented folk/rock, there is only one man left, and even he has changed his name.
