By the time Roger McGuinn, David Crosby, Chris Hillman, and Michael Clarke entered the studio to begin work on this album, they were basically falling apart at the seams. "Ladyfriend", a song written by Crosby, had just failed miserably as a chart single despite the fact that he lobbied hard to get it released. This - coupled with the fact that he made what the rest of the band considered an embarrassing political speech onstage during their set at the Monterey Pop Festival, and then sat in with rivals the Buffalo Springfield the following day - pushed McGuinn and Hillman in particular to the limits of their patience. Then, for the Notorious sessions, Crosby presented a song called "Triad", written about a threesome, and although McGuinn and Hillman reluctantly agreed to record it, they later decided to place a less controversial Goffin & King pop number called "Goin' Back" on the album instead. Crosby declared the song banal and refused to sing on it. A few too many studio flare-ups later, McGuinn and Hillman finally screeched up into the Hollywood Hills in their Jaguars and fired Crosby on the spot. Also brooding during this period was drummer Michael Clarke, who had always borne the brunt of the other band members' rage while recording. He was by far the least accomplished member of the band musically, and when they suggested bringing in a studio drummer to embellish some tracks (Jim Gordon, later of Derek & the Dominos fame), he finally declared he'd had enough and moved to Hawaii to get away from the music scene altogether. So, McGuinn and Hillman were left to cobble together an album with the help of producer Gary Usher (known for his work with Brian Wilson, the Millenium, Sagittarius and many others). The fact that it turned out to be one of the defining albums of the 60s psychedelic pop experience was either a sheer stroke of luck, or a testament to McGuinn and Hillman's determination to prove that they didn't need Crosby's help to construct their masterpiece.

About the Author:

Ric Menck is a drummer, singer, and songwriter who lives in Los Angeles. He has been in bands since 1979, including the Drats, the Reverbs, Pop the Balloon, Bag of Shells, the Springfields, Velvet Crush and the Tyde. As a drummer, he has played on records by (and toured with) Matthew Sweet, Liz Phair, Aimee Mann, Willie Nelson, and Marianne Faithfull. He also runs a small record label dedicated to reissuing lost classics from the 60s and 70s, and he recently released a retrospective solo album The Ballad of Ric Menck, which PopMatters described as ‘one of the best albums of 2004'.

Review:

reviewed in Magic (France) (Etienne Greib)

"Inthis volume of Continuum's 33 1/3 series,Ric (call him Lightening) Menck rhapsodizes quite eloquently about what makesthe album so special, while looking under the hood, as it were, to examine howeach of the tracks came to be in the studio and putting the album in thehistorical and psychological context of the band."- David Biasotti, Ugly Things, Issue 25 (Ugly Things)
