The Byrds were a popular American band formed in Los Angeles, California in 1964. They are considered one of the most important and influential bands of the 19.

Their music bridged the gaps between the socially and spiritually conscious music of Bob Dylan, the studio trickery of The Beach Boys, and the sardonic rock of The Beatles. Some of their trademark songs include pop versions of Bob Dylan's Mr. Tambourine Man and Pete Seeger’s Turn… read more

  • @NathelieJulienn Well, it's a little late, but just in case you've been in cryogenic sleep since February 23 or have resisted listening to the Byrds til your question gets answered, their most Psychedelic albums are Eight Miles High, Younger Than Yesterday and The Notorious Byrd Brothers. The ones before those are the Folk Rock/Pop albums that popularized that jangly 12-string guitar sound and the ones after are almost uniformly Country/Country Rock. However, Dr. Byrds & Mr. Hyde, which I think is incredibly underrated and underexposed, mixes Country Rock and Psychedelic Rock into one record.
  • I have a unhealthy obsession with there first three albums
