CROWDED HOUSE I Feel Possessed (1989) w/ ByrdHouse – 3 Live Byrds Tracks With Roger McGuinn

I Feel Possessed (1989)
Maxi-Single w/ The Byrds’ Roger McGuinn

CD Maxi-Single issued to promote “I Feel Possessed,” from Crowded House’s Temple Of Low Men. For the bonus tracks, the band is joined onstage by Roger McGuinn, who performs three Byrds tunes, live from the Pantages Theater in L.A., April 7, 1989. Nothing revelatory here, but a cool rarity nonetheless. Under a buck @ Amazon, HERE.

    Thanks, Captain! It's always fun to hear Roger play that electric Rickenbacker, even if it's the same handful of songs over and over and over…

    That's funny. I remember McGuinn caught some flack locally from the media because he would sometimes show up onstage and play a few tunes when friends came through town (like Tom Petty, for instance). One of the newspapers gave him the same grief for always playing the same tunes during his cameos. Thanks.

    well, as far as playing the same tunes when he’d show up, its also a matter of what the band he is guesting with knows, too! I mean, I am as sick of “Tambourine Man” or “R & R Star” as anyone, but it’s pretty simple to play and i bet most bands know how to play them! It ain’t like he’s gonna launch into “Draft Morning” or something and everybody will just join in!!!!!

    Hell, those are the tunes most of the casual fans (someone else’s crowd) wanted to hear anyway, so there really is no beef. Except some writer subliminally bitching about his job, the excruciating chore of having to sit through Roger McGuinn play the same tunes 3 or 4 times (with different superstar bands he got free tickets to) over the course of a few years. Those are the types of writers you just decide to stop reading one day.
