If you are a current fan of Americana music, I hope that you have taken some time to get to know the music of The Byrds. Undoubtedly one of the most influential American bands of all time, their legacy includes being pioneers of what was later labeled as Folk Rock, Psychedelic Rock and Country Rock.
The original Byrds included the big names of McGuinn, Clark, Crosby and Hillman with Jim “Roger” McGuinn the only one who made his way through all 12 of the LPs in the Byrds’ catalog. Here’s a schematic of the line-up changes that the band went through, culminating with a reunion of the original lineup for one last Byrds record in 1973.
Here’s a link to one or two of my favorite songs from each Byrds album for you to enjoy.
