The Byrds were one of the earliest groups who could combine the best of two worlds. They caught on to the energy of the British Invasion and combined it with the lyricism & musical elements of the contemporary Folk movement. Along the way they pioneered Psychedelic and Country Rock, always keeping things recognizable with their vocal harmonies accompanied by their jangly guitars.
Their 1965 debut Mr. Tambourine Man hit the flower generation like a bombshell. ‘One of the greatest debuts in the history of rock’, it melds their lyrical prowess with their compelling guitar riffs, and was the blueprint for their future sound. A classic!
