The Byrds were truly a gift to rock music fans all over the world. There will never be another collective of superstar talent like The Byrds. Their amazing sound and membership is of legendary proportion, as it truly was shown in 1966 with their brilliant third album Fifth Dimension.
The album is jam packed with 11 classic rock champions like Eight Miles High, Mr. Spaceman, I See You, Hey Joe and of course the smash title track, Fifth Dimension, making this one of the most important albums ever in classic rock.
With the lead vocals and unmistakable 12 string guitar work of Roger McGuinn, the musicianship and lead vocal work of the legendary David Crosby, the solid bass playing and lead vocal work of Chris Hillman, along with the stellar lead vocals of Gene Clark and the hipster Michael Clarke on drums, all of these ingredients made The Byrds a force to reckon with like no other. Cultivating their folk and rock influences into psychedelic electric treasures, their music stands the test of time.
