Holiday Hiatus - The Byrds

Some 60's psychedelic folk for you today courtesy of The Byrds
Taken from the Definitive Collection - 25 tracks but only one from Sweetheart of the Rodeo one of the top 10 albums of all time.
Something wrong there surely.
This post has given me an idea for a new  series - stay tuned

The Byrds - Eight Miles High

The Byrds - Mr Spaceman


  1. Pretty much as close to perfection as it gets?

  2. Is the new series something to with space?

    1. Now THAT's a great idea for a series. Wasn't there a band called the Tygers of Pantang?

  4. A lot more uninspired than all these suggestions!

  5. Got to say I prefer this period Byrds to the Sweetheart of the Rodeo period. Space rock rocks. Spacily.

  6. First time I ever heard Eight Miles High was the Roxy Music cover version on 'Flesh and Blood'. I'd always thought, without ever really listening, that The Byrds were hippies to be avoided at all costs. My musical tastes over the years have thankfully matured and expanded (in line with my body shape)
