This version of “Fair and Tender Ladies” was recorded at New York’s Bottom Line in 1977. Gene Clark and I were on an acoustic tour of the United States. Gene was playing his beautiful Martin D-45 and I was finger picking my Rickenbacker 370 12-string - dripping with compression. Our songs spanned the music of The Byrds, our solo careers and included some traditional material - including this arrangement, which could easily have been on a 1965 Byrds record.

something about the lo-fi rainy-day strumming reminds me of the Bevis Frond
