Fantastic debut album. It still sounds way ahead of its time. Every track is a potential hit! The vinyl still packs a punch!

Non sono mai stati tra i miei gruppi preferiti, ma hanno il merito di aver reso più "poppeggiante" Bob Dylan ( specie nella canzone omonima di questo disco ) e quindi di aver contribuito a renderlo più popolare...

The Byrds debut album brings folk rock to the masses. It's an enjoyable album although sonically it all sounds the same, still, it's an excellent and influential LP. The jangly guitars dominate, a sound that The Beatles had used on the previous year's, what you're doing, on their, Beatles for sale, LP. As for the album itself, there are some great songs here, a third from the pen of Bob Dylan, including the stunning, Mr. Tambourine man, which takes Dylan's folk classic and turns it into a catchy pop hit. There's, chimes of freedom, and, all I really want to do(I'm still not sure about that middle eight), and, Spanish Harlem incident. Best of the originals is, I feel a whole lot better, and, here without you. There are a few throwaway's, but that was how it was then, still, an important album which would kick of a barrage of folk rock tracks but the Byrds are the original and best.

These guys had an original sound that proved to be hugely influential from the start. I'll Feel a Whole Lot Better is one of the greatest pop rock songs ever recorded.
