After work yesterday, I stopped at the local Borders as I had a 33% off coupon and was browsing through their $8.99 bin.

And there it was. The Byrds album Sweetheart of the Rodeo.

Thanks to a good friend of mine, I became a Gram Parsons fan a few years back and ended up happily backtracking my way through The Flying Burrito Brothers and Gram's solo stuff. But for what ever reason, I never got around to picking up this one, even though I am a Byrds fan and even though Gram is on it and his influence is obvious.

I'm listening to it this morning and it is an uncovered gem for sure.

So, have you discovered a classic album lately that was a long long time coming?

And now that I think of it, I was rather late in discovering Seven Turns or Where it All Begins . I only acquired these two in the last year and after hearing them, you will have to eventually pry them from my cold dead hands ...

Almost ashamed to admit this but, Dylan's "Highway 61 Revisited".

To a certain extent, I have gotten into almost everything classic late in the game. I am 43 and have spent much of my musical life looking backwards. It really has been rare that I have caught a classic or totally amazing band in their prime or got a now-classic album right when it came out. By the time I really started buying my own albums, it was 1981, and think about how many great bands were missing pivotal members or whose best work was behind them.

That being said, the artists that I was waaaay behind the curve on include Dylan, Miles Davis, and the Doors.
For them, I will cite "The Basement Tapes," "Kind of Blue," and "Waiting for the Sun" as albums I only got in the 2000s.

I did not love my now-fave band the Rolling Stones until college. Understand that when I was in high school, the Stones were represented by songs that had been played to death on the radio or the horrifing sight of these dried-up British fops posing like fools on MTV in bad videos. It was not until college that a diehard Stones-head turned me on to the hundreds of amazing songs that the Stones had that I really got it. "Exile on Main Street" was the soundtrack to my senior year of college, 1989.

Who have I caught IN their prime? Black Crowes, Derek Trucks.

Hope you picked up the Deluxe version of Sweetheart with the restored Gram Parsons vocals that were removed from the original release.

And someone else you might check out (and mentioned on this forum in the past) is original Byrds member Gene Clark. If you don't have anything by Gene, I would highly recommend picking up copies of his albums No Other and White Light. Two different sides of Gene, but both are great albums.

Great tip, I would have to say Early or any Flying Burrito Brosthers. I had no idea how good or who these guys were until I bought the Live at the Filmore Double CD last year. Its amazing stuff.

I had never heard Jimmy Cliff's "The Harder They Come" until I bought it last year. I'm still wondering where the hell I've been, it came out in the early 70's. Quite possibly the best reggae album ever made. If this record doesn't lift your spirits, well, you must be REALLY down.

Any from the 60s and 70s because it was before my time. I was "late" getting into the Mule and DTB

On the other side I got Green Days American Idiot when it first came out liked it told my friends they shrug me off. Little while later when Blvd of Broken Dreams is a big hit they all come telling me how great the album is and that I should check it out

The first Rory album that I bought was because of his performance on TV, 'In Concert' or DKRC. He was doing some songs from 'Against The Grain'. That album led me to all the others, 'Blueprint' was next and then I went on to ''Calling card' and 'Photofinish' Really enjoy ATG though.

Too many to list, but Sweetheart of the Rodeo is on it. Unique Byrds release, for sure.

If you like Sweetheart, then you owe it to yourself to check out the first Flying Burrito Bros. album, Gilded Palace Of Sin. In that vein, I would also highly recommend the first album by Poco, Pickin' Up The Pieces as well as any of the Buffalo Springfield albums, especially Buffalo Springfield Again.
