Chimes Of Freedom

This song was written and recorded by Bob Dylan in 1964. The Byrds released their cover version a year later from their "Mr Tambourine Man" album.

During this recording session, and this being the last track for the album, David Crosby refused to sing with no explanation. After producer Jim Dickson put Crosby on the floor and with some very stern words that followed, Crosby relented and sang his harmony part on the track.
