The legendary album that was really a vehicle for Gram Parsons' cosmic country vision. The only Byrds album to feature him, and many of his vocals replaced by McGuinn. Still, the album is a cornerstone of American music. Essential.
Take It from the Man! Is gritty, swaggering R&B-influenced rock, delivered with remarkable assurance and attitude; singer Anton Newcombe is half-madman and half-shaman, and he commands each delirious moment with absolute mastery.
