Song of the Day: The Byrds - Lover of the Bayou [live]

I've posted a song by The Byrds before, but if ever a band could not be accurately portrayed by just one song, it's this band. This track does not feature the early Dylan 12-string chiming guitars and harmonies, nor is it Sweetheart-era country-rock - just a driving rock song, featuring Roger McGuinn's voice at its most gravelly, sans harmonies.  One of my favorite songs in their catalog.
