Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Songs of All Time - "I'll Feel A Whole Lot Better" - Rated 237/500!
Unavailable for over 35 years, we're proud to present the first ever reissues of these monumental recordings in their original, highly-sought-after mono incarnations, cut from the original Columbia Records analog mono masters, with perfect artwork restoration and meticulously faithful mastering.
If any '60s rock band made more soup out of their first four albums than did these masters of 12-strings and heavenly harmonies, we'd like to know who they were!
"Wow, man, you can even dance to that!" said Bob Dylan when he heard the Byrds' heavily harmonized, electric twelve-string treatments of his material. The Byrds' debut defined folk rock with Pete Seeger and Dylan songs, and punchy, ringing guitars." - www.rollingstone.com
"The Byrds championed the songs of Bob Dylan, who in turn praised the exotic balladry of Byrd Gene Clark. 'I remember him saying, 'Gene is really interesting to me,' said bassist Chris Hillman. Clark wrote this about a girlfriend from their days at the L.A. club Ciro's. 'She was a funny girl, and she started bothering me,' he said. 'I wrote the whole song within a few minutes.'" - Rolling Stone
