Ricky Byrd, Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame Inductee (2015 with Joan Jett and the Blackhearts), originally released Sobering Times (Kayos Records) in September 2020. Initially available as a limited release on RickyByrd.com, Sobering Times will now be distributed worldwide to retail outlets and digital platforms via a new partnership with BFD / The Orchard. The lead-off single “Together” was dubbed The Coolest Song In The World in Little Steven’s Underground Garage in December 2020.

A slice of Rock ‘n’ Roll with a message of recovery, Sobering Times connected with listeners in unprecedented ways. With the COVID-19 lockdown proving to be an unexpected hurdle for those struggling with addiction; many fans reached out to Byrd, stating the album inspired them to stay clean and sober while weathering the pandemic, through his honest reflections of the depths of addiction and triumphs of recovery.

Byrd delivers this message through straight-ahead three-chord Rock ‘N’ Roll. On Sobering Times, he enlisted the help of several of his fellow rock brethren: Willie Nile, Liberty DeVitto, Steve Holley, Thommy Price, co-producer Bob Stander, Rich Pagano, Jeff Kazee, and Christine Ohlman.

All New Items on flyvintageandvinyl.com are Priced Below MSRP
and do not reflect our in-store prices and are not necessarily in stock at our physical store.
In fact, most items won’t be because we’re a small, family run business and don’t have space to stock nearly 500,000 new titles.

Separate Shopping Carts for New and Used Items
Because new items available on flyvintageandvinyl.com are fulfilled by our distributor and used items available on used.flyvintageandvinyl.com
(via the “Buy Used” button above) are fulfilled by us at our physical store, they require separate shopping carts and checkout procedures.
It’s a minor inconvenience, but we’ll try to make it worth your while with our selection, ultrasonic-cleaned used records and competitive prices.
Shipping within the U.S. is $5 for the first LP plus 50¢ for each additional LP via USPS Media Mail.

A Note About Pre-Orders
Orders containing both pre-orders and “Available to Order” items from flyvintageandvinyl.com will be shipped in one package when the pre-order title(s) is/are released.

International Orders, Box Sets and Larger Items
may incur an additional shipping fee and we’ll notify you by email before we process your order. Customs forms for international orders are marked as "Merchandise"
and we are not responsible for any additional customs fees when packages arrive at their destination country. Select items aren't allowed to be shipped outside the U.S.
and we’ll issue a refund for these if export restrictions apply. We reserve the right to limit quantities on select items.
