JAZZ, CLASSICAL MUSIC AND THE ARTS IN NEW YORK CITY

Song of the Day 8/3/09

Every day, our top 666 songs of alltime countdown gets one step closer to #1. Typically we do a lot more than this here – we’re currently working feverishly updating this month’s  NYC concert calendar. In the meantime, Monday’s song is #359:

The Byrds – The Times They Are a-Changing

Just imagine for a second how much more amazing Dylan would have been if instead of the Band, he’d had the Byrds playing behind him. “Your sons and your daughters are beyond your command.” No, they weren’t, actually – many of them would grow up to vote for people like Bill Clinton and Dick Cheney. Still, you gotta love the sentiment. The best album you’ll find this on is The Byrds Play Dylan reissue compilation from 1999.
