Take flight with the ultimate American rock band!

Modern American rock starts here. When the Byrds initially took flight in Los Angles in 1964 the British Invasion, launched earlier that year on these shores by the Beatles, followed closely by the Rolling Stones, the Kinks, the Animals and numerous others, held the rock world in its sway. But the Byrds _ former folk, country and bluegrass musicians with a keen ear for the new, electrified sounds (as well as the words and music of Bob Dylan) _ changed all that. The jangly timbres of Jim (later Roger) McGuinn's 12-string guitar, and the ethereal three-part harmonies of McGuinn, David Crosby and Gene Clark gave the U.S. its own strong contender for pop primacy.

The Byrd's first five classic albums are collected in full in this exclusive vinyl box set. All LP's are exact replicas of the original classic albums and have been remastered for incredible sound and sourced from the original master tapes. Like many innovators, the Byrds were never satisfied merely to repeat themselves. Consequently, these five albums present not one musical approach, but several: the groundbreaking, chart-topping folk-rockers of Mr. Tambourine Man and Turn! Turn! Turn! fame; the psychedelic, raga-rocking space cadets who gave us "Eight Miles High" and "5D" on Fifth Dimension; the eclectic musical styles of Younger Than Yesterday and the country-rock outfit who made the pioneering Notorious Byrd Brothers album. Music has seldom sounded better than this.



Throughout rock's growing years, albums consisted of a hit and a handful of fillers. Mr. Tambourine Man would change that formula irrevocably. Intrigued by the single, album buyers this time discovered a solid 12 inches of jangly, inspired magic. Years before the advent of progressive or underground radio, the Mr. Tambourine Man album became a worldwide smash entirely via word of mouth. With this debut LP, the Byrds transcended pop to become the musical voice of an entire generation

In late 1965, a time of division and rage, Turn! Turn! Turn! was a much-needed voice of communion and reason. Timeless in the truest sense, this album continues to resonate with love and compassionÄnot to mention phenomenal songwriting and stellar performances.


Side A

1. Turn! Turn! Turn! (To Everything There Is a Season)

5. Wait and See

6. Oh! Susannah



It took considerable courage to unleash a record like Fifth Dimension in 1966. Yet its defining influence on American rock is still singularly deep and profound. The Byrds' volatile expression of adventure, risk and self-examination remains a work of considerable boldness and beauty.


Side A

1. 5 D (Fifth Dimension)

2. Wild Mountain Thyme

3. Mr. Spaceman

4. I See You

5. What's Happening?!?!

3. Captain Soul

4. John Riley

5. 2-4-2 Fox Trot (The Lear Jet Song)



Occasionally, music takes on a life above and beyond that of its creators. Which is exactly what happened with Younger Than Yesterday. Recorded at a time of great internal strife within the Byrds, this work continued (and continues) to speak with clarity, authority and unity. A mature and essential touchstone of the Byrds' recorded output, the newly remastered Younger Than Yesterday grandly lives up to its name.


Side A

1. So You Want To Be A Rock 'N' Roll Star

2. Have You Seen Her Face

3. C.T.A. - 102

4. The Girl With No Name

5. Why



1968's Notorious Byrd Brothers opened with a devastating one-two punch: a horn section marvel bemoaning the go-fast culture; and a baroque pop masterpiece that floated to heaven on wisps of pedal steel and harpsichord. The trenchant songwriting-answering recent work by The Beatles and The Stones-tackled subjects as diverse as the agony of the Vietnam war and the exploration of deep space on an album many people regard as The Byrds' best.


Side A

1. Artificial Energy

2. Goin' Back

5. Wasn't Born To Follow
