The Original Singles 1965-67 / Volume 1

The Original Singles 1965-67 / Volume 1 by The Byrds
Released: Jan 1980
Label: Columbia
The Byrds' self-titled box set from 1990 is a four-disc monster that basically renders most of the band's older compilations and anthologies obsolete. Nevertheless, Original Singles teaches one of pop music's vital lessons: the Byrds were one of the greatest singles bands of all time, right up there with the Beatles and Beach Boys. In just under two years the band dropped eight singles that helped form the foundation for folk-rock, psychedelia, country-rock, jangle pop and indie-rock. Amazing.
