Many thanks to Janet Krypers of Scars Publications, who is a dynamic poet, both with the written and spoken word, for including more of my photos to my art gallery at Scars.

Was listening to the 1968 album, The Notorious Byrd Brothers, a record that for me ranks up there with the greatest music from that period--Love's Forever Changes, Spirit's Twelve Dreams of Dr. Sardonicus and The Blues Project's Projections. The album was one of the first that used a moog synthesizer and there are all kind of studio effects to predate electronic experimentation that was to follow in the 70s and 80s. (Simon and Garfunkel, and The Monkees also used the moog on one of their efforts.) David Crosby, who was fired from the band in '67 appears on some of the tracks. Interestingly, one outtake from the album is the beautiful "Triad" that was later recorded by The Jefferson Airplane on Crown of Creation. What amazes me most about this album is how well it has stood up to to the test of time. After this experimental masterpiece, The Byrds followed a more country-styled music for their next venture--Sweetheart of the Rodeo. They were the first band I ever saw in 1970.
