Review

Roger McGuinn, whose voice and 12-string guitar had been signature elements of the Byrds, was flying high again on solo albums three and four: Roger McGuinn & Bandand Cardiff Rose. Released in 1975, the former longplayer features McGuinn's tortured vocals on screaming rocker "Somebody Loves You," a mindbending version of Bob Dylan's "Knockin' On Heaven's Door" and a churning reprise of McGuinn classic "Born To Rock And Roll." Rejuvenated by a featured spot in Dylan's fabled Rolling Thunder Revue in 1975, McGuinn hooked up with storied producer/guitarist Mick Ronson to create Cardiff Rose, the solo LP many consider his best. From the ringing opening chords of "Take Me Away" and the scurvy buccaneer tale, "Jolly Roger," both fascinating postcards from Rolling Thunder, to the swaggering "Rock And Roll Time" and Joni Mitchell's fervent "Dreamland," McGuinn's feet barely touch the ground on this 1976 masterpiece. Accompanied by liner notes penned after recent interviews with the great man himself, both McGuinn classics now available on compact disc with bonus material, have been sourced from the pristine Columbia Records master tapes and have never sounded better!
