Poor Gene made a habit of being in the right place at the wrong time; burning through bands and record labels faster than a tech startup bleeds money. At his best he was Gram Parsons, Dylan, Phil Ochs and John Hartford rolled up into one and at his worst, a sad drunk.
I could never find a chance to choose 
Between a way to win or a thing to lose 
                 – from Set You Free with The Byrds

♥ Most of these songs are available on studio albums. I chose a non-album version when it suited the song better.

♥ As you listen, note that Gene is/was one of the only folk/country songwriters to value bass players. This doesn’t get talked about enough.

♠ Byrds bandmate Roger McGuinn groused that Gene never read anything yet could be so poetic. Maybe that’s why he so often resorted to weather reports in his songs.

As your pilot I would like to raise a glass or 7 and toast this flight tonight.
