The Byrds - My Back Pages
From my last trip down south - fourth in the series "The Road is Where You Are." I originally determined that I'm the Ocean and From the Edge of the Deep Green Sea would both be going on this one because they are both long songs and I usually don't put long tracks on this. They'd both been considered for other volumes in the series, and rejected. It helped that they tapped into similar themes. After that I just slide in the rest of the tracks around them.

For those curious - I've put out 4 volumes of road music - REM and the Byrds have appeared on each CD, a tradition I intend to continue. The Beatles have appeared on 3 CDs. Tori Amos, Belle & Sebastian, The Clash, The Cranberries, Dandy Warhols, Bob Dylan, Foo Fighters, Pearl Jam, The Psychedelic Furs, Radiohead, Simon And Garfunkel, Smashing Pumpkins, U2, and Neil Young have appeared on 2 CDs.
