When I was young during the 60s revival of the 80s The Byrds were the joker in the pack. Beatles, Beach Boys, Velvet Underground? no: The Byrds. Strange that they seem to have vanished in some kind of obscurity in the last decades.

An underrated gem of the mid 60s, who perhaps are the single most important band in driving the folk revival and transferring that into rock music.

Really glad I finally took the time to check out this band after endless comparisons between them and Rubber Soul-era Beatles. Really nice band to just drift along with.

From Willie24 11/03/2013 17:18
The origin of the Byrds can be traced back to 1964 Los Angeles. Early success came through covers of Dylan songs in a style which was to become their trademark – essentially folk music played up-tempo with superb harmonies and the lush sound of Mcguinn’s 12 string Rickenbecker to the fore.

Essentially merging the lyrical beauty of Dylan and the musical inventiveness and harmonies of the Beatles the Byrds were highly instrumental in the creation of both Folk and Country rock. Such was their influence that the Beatles (particularly Harrison) repaid the compliment by copying the Byrds sound on certain tracks. (If I Needed Someone from Rubber Soul being the most obvious example).

Whilst the importance of the Byrds albums measured by critical acclaim or chart success is not high their influence is immeasurable. The artistic tensions that resulted in a continually changing line-up also fired great innovation and brilliant music that in retrospect puts the Byrds in the same class as the Beatles, Stones, Dylan and Hendrix. Their influence on folk, country, rock were critical to the generation of all of these sub- genres and should not be underestimated.

This really depresses me, a shame that this band has become under appreciated, especially after all they have done for rock music. They influenced Bob Dylan and the Beatles just as much as they influenced them....

I'd rather not dwell on the fact they are rated so low on this site. It brings out the misanthropist in me.
A magical band, at least between 1965-68.

Were these guys supposed to rival the Beatles? To me, they're in different genres of music. The Byrds were better once they realize they were rootsy, harmonic, and less poppy than the Beatles. Got better as they went along.
