In October of 1972, the five original members of the Byrds: Roger McGuinn, Gene Clark, David Crosby, Chris Hillman, and Michael Clarke reconvened to record a poorly received reunion album. One of the album's highlights, though, featured the band tackling Clark's crystalline and wise "Full Circle." (The song was also included on Roadmaster). Enamored with the concept of the Buddhist Wheel of Life, Clark must have felt like the Byrds reunion was déjà vu all over again, his fortunes rising (the Byrds was his lone remotely lucrative project) only to plummet soon after: "Though you always look for what you know/ each time around/ there's something new again." This lineup of the band never recorded together again.
