Background: Released in 1991, Back From Rio was the sixth studio album by Byrds founder Roger McGuinn.

The album reached #44 on the U.S. album chart.  The single “King of the Hill,” featuring Tom Petty on guest vocals, received considerable airplay. gave Back From Rio a 4 1/2 star review:

After spending the better part of the 1980s as a solo acoustic troubadour, Byrds cofounder Roger McGuinn landed a contract for a solo album with Arista Records at the turn of the 1990s. Featuring Tom Petty, Mike Campbell, and ex-Byrds David Crosby and Chris Hillman, the resultant album had a strangely modern feel, although it was primarily driven by McGuinn’s trademark Rickenbacker 12-string.
