It was a tour, Gene's 20th Anniversary Tribute to Byrds. Rick Roberts from FBB was also aboard. I love that Firebyrd album not sure where iit fits in. Gene eventually used the Byrds name and was on national TV at least twice fronting "the Byrds."
  Thu. 6/27/13 11:46am Robert:

"The Protectors" had co-stars playing 2 characters from vastly different backgrounds, one British, the other American, and that's actually about all I remember from it, other than that it was neither very good nor very bad.

"Dept. S" was pirated onto YouTube not long ago, then apparently booted. I learned it was there when searching for a particular episode, "One of Our Aircraft is Empty", which I considered to be a precursor to my friend David Lindelof's "Lost". Both were takeoffs (heh) on the A.C. Doyle story "The Lost Special".

Van the Man! Just saw a bio on Irish music a few nights ago. Naturally, he figured prominently.

Ridiculously sublime set, Joe.

@Carmichael Excellent choice for your ever-changing avatar. Break like the wind!

Best version of any song ever. Saw Van fairly recently and they made mistake of playing this over PA before he went on. Never ever play the same artiist over the PA. Or anything good!

"One of Our Aircraft Is Empty" was an excellent mystery, BTW. An airliner lands as scheduled, but its passengers & crew are all missing.

Thanks, Doug! :)

One of the best Dylan covers ever recorded, no lie. Maybe THE best, with all apologies to Hendrix.

I really dig the 13th Floor cover of this too.

@fleep: He he ... Shark Sandwich or, as the two-word review stated, "shit sandwich."

Ditto what Doug said.

Odd thing about Van. He is a protestant from Northern Ireland. He admits he grew up as Britisher had no knowledge of Irish folk music until he started singing it late in his career.

Thanks, Joe.
