    Whole lotta Skip and Gene in this... I'm wondering if they lost the footage of the camera that was on Clarence, or if he was just too boring to watch?

    There isn't much film of them from this era, but there are piles of live audio recordings (many of which are very good) of the Byrds from '69-'72.

    Skip and Gene sure earned their pay here.
    I wore the Untitled album out when I was in the 9th grade.
    Great stuff!

    I never realised this. From Wikipedia:

    Although the basic idea for the song had been discussed during the band's flight to England, it didn't actually begin to take shape until the Byrds' November 1965 tour of the U.S.[9] To alleviate the boredom of traveling from show to show during the tour, Crosby had brought along cassette recordings of Ravi Shankar's music and the John Coltrane albums Impressions and Africa/Brass, which were on constant rotation on the tour bus.[18][19] The influence of these recordings on the band would manifest itself in the music of "Eight Miles High" and its B-side "Why".[18]
