Farther Along is an album by American band The Byrds, released in 1971 (see 1971 in music). Well aware of the stinging criticism that the over-produced Byrdmaniax was receiving (and none too pleased with the album themselves), The Byrds promptly dispensed with Terry Melcher again, headed off to London, England in the summer of 1971 and quickly cut a new album, producing the whole thing themselves.

Unfortunately, the damage inflicted by Byrdmaniax could not be undone, and the much more pleasing Farther Along went largely unnoticed upon release, stalling at #152 in the US - a no-show in the UK charts - and it disappeared quickly.

Time has been kind to Farther Along. Though by no means in the same category as The Notorious Byrd Brothers, or even (Untitled), Farther Along was a satisfying, if not stellar, Byrds album.

It would also turn out to be the last Byrds studio album with its latter day line-up and on Columbia Records. In 1972, Roger McGuinn would break the band up in order to facilitate an ill-fated reunion of the original classic 1965 group (with David Crosby, Gene Clark, Chris Hillman and Michael Clarke) and an underwhelming "comeback" album that would prove the final death knell for The Byrds.

RollingStone.com: Farther Along : The Byrds : Review (828 words)
Farther Along is the Byrds' first completely self-produced LP, and exists as a kind of backlash to Terry Melcher's elaborate string and choir-laden production of Byrdmaniax.
Farther Along opens with McGuinn's "Tiffany Queen," a "Johnny B. Goode"-based "115th Dream"–a series of surreal nonsequiturs with "a Tiffany lamp overhead" as the refrain.
"Farther Along," laced with acoustic guitar and mandolin, is this album's "Oil In My Lamp" or "My Destiny." "B.B. Class Road" is dedicated to the road managers of the world, and is, I suppose, a bit of recognition long overdue.
Farther Along (914 words)
After the priest performed the burial rites, Bernie Leadon and Gram Parsons began to sing "Farther Along." Soon many of the mourners joined in on the country gospel standard both the Byrds and the Flying Burrito Brothers had recorded.
"Farther Along," with its perfect harmonies and great mandolin work, has a country gospel arrangement authentic enough to outflank Gram Parsons's slightly earlier version on the Flying Burrito Brothers' Burrito Deluxe (A&M, 1971).
The Farther Along sessions are bookended by two pairs of songs released on Earl Scruggs albums.
