2004 | Label: Re:Live / The Orchard

Live at the XM Studios feels as if Roger McGuinn were sitting next to you in your living room. There he is, playfully recounting his career with the Byrds and as a solo artist with short, insightful stories that preface his incredible songs, singing with the same angelic grace as ever, casually strumming and picking his acoustic guitar like a good friend spending the evening. McGuinn is in fine fettle, whether it's "I Lost My… read more »

O.K. Great that all this is available on emusic, but why are all his other Columbia/Sony/CBS albums not on this list. The mind boggles. Maybe next time.

Good Songs vs. Good Records

UncleNed

A huge gulf exists, in general, between a *good record* and a *good song* Way too many *good records* made from *not-so-good songs* Here, the *Songs* stand as tall as the records. I enjoy this forum, ofttimes more than the records which came so long before. In Roger's hands, the already *good songs* are well served - as *served* they should be.

A Favorite From an Icon of American R & R

Bungelow_Ed

Roger McGuinn and his music sum up one of the most volitile and troubling periods in recent American history. Everything from 60's protest anmd commentary to early country rock, it's all here. One album that is always close at hand when driving.

Hero!

I downloaded this after having seen Roger on his recent UK tour which is the same content. Absolutley fascinating to listen to a guy who was so closely involved in the development of modern American music. He is a living legend and deserves big respect. Every track has a story and is performed with skill and passion. Listen and enjoy!

Roger McGuinn Live @ XM Studios

hgoodrich2

This is a generous portion of great songs. I especially liked the striped down nature of the arrangements , just Roger on his 12 string. Ordinarily I don't like alot of talking w/ my music but the short anecdotes that he gives for each song are interesting bits of music history. I would reccommend this download to any one interested in learning any of these songs because it is easy to break down and figure out what chords he is using.

Don't be STUPID!

eMusic offers nothing better. If nothing else, you are required to download "Eight Miles High." As you're playing it back on your headphones, consider that this is a 60+ year-old crazy man (and don't call him "Jim") live on the air, playing alone with ONE guitar! If you get a chance to see him live, go (before he hangs it up).

Thanks, emusic!

This artist, on his own, with Bob Dylan and other artists hailing from the '60s-early '70s era, or in mystical union with the other great talents of the Byrds supergroup, shines brightly as one of the truly great writers and musicians of the classic rock era. He certainly is a wizard with 12-string guitar and is also a great vocalist: Needless to say: He's an extremely intelligent musician and is really memorable--very fondly--in concert!

BUY THIS NOW !!!!

This is an outstanding collection of songs which have brought me great peace. I could not imagine anyone not needing a little peace in thier lives. I strongly suggest you download this completely and now.

The test of time

dynaguytn

"Mr. Tambourine Man" is the song for which I first picked up a guitar, and "Turn, Turn, Turn" pointed me at the fingerstyle 12 String. These are the intimate & essential versions of these works, and the other pieces here are at least as good. The tunes have stood the test of time, but these versions are vital. Bravo, very well done!

Eight Miles High ...

BudSalt1

It's all been said above but I felt quite euphoric to discover this superbly recorded initimate concert with one of the grand masters of folk rock ... and that much more elevated having heard this album a few times. I love the way that Roger still loves to tell the stories as well as sing the songs - enthusiasm undimmed. May his light continue to beam bright on our music scene.
