Avalon Ballroom, San Francisco November 2nd 1968 (CD)

This remarkable set was taped for radio broadcast very soon after the band’s new line-up of Roger McGuinn, Clarence White, Gene Parsons and John York had coalesced. Despite the turmoil in their recent history, they turn in a superb series of performances on a fascinating selection of songs (several of which they rarely played), featuring especially noteworthy guitar work from the great Clarence White. It’s presented here with excellent sound, complete with background notes and rare photographs, making it a vital document for all connoisseurs of 60s rock.
