  16. Prof.,
    Thanks for shining up a "turd" created by Sony into the diamond it should've been. Your "it's all in the details" approach created another "industry standard" if the industry had high standards.

  18. Prof, thank you for putting together this excellent Byrds collection and including so many great Gene Clark songs. If you are looking for projects to undertake, check out the Clarkophile blog. They have proposed an excellent fantasy deluxe edition release of Gene Clark's Roadmaster and it looks right up your alley: http://clarkophile.blogspot.com/2021/08/how-id-create-deluxe-edition-of.html

  22. Terrific, thanks for this carefully assembled collection of the best sources!
    The best Byrds 45, though, is of course "Wasn't Born To Follow" from '68 ... ;)

  23. Yeah yeah, but that was a European only thingy..

  24. Many thanks for this sonically superior collection.

  25. Still remember the first time I heard "Mr. Tambourine Man". Thank you for this one too.

  26. Another great one! Thanks, Prof. Btw Track 9 (The Times They Are A-Changin') sounds exactly like the bonus track mono mix on Turn!Turn!Turn!. It is always given a recording date of 28th June 65, while here it says to come from 1st Sept 65...

    ReplyDelete
  27. Sorry, track 9 wasn't supposed to be a vinyl-only track anyway. That was 5-8!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Wonderful :) I never liked the sound of the Sundazed, so this is very welcome.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm sure the late Byrds biographer Johnny Rogan would approve and appreciate this great work of art. Many thanks for the great improvement on the Sundazed effort

  30. Thanks! My No 1 group forever. Amazing Job!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Thank You very much!

  32. Thank you very much Prof, just loving the comp! I must admit that I don't know too much about the Byrds, so would it be allright if you quickly ran through the bonus tracks? Are they alternate takes released on early pressings of 45s acccidentally, rare mixes, etc? Hope it's not too much of a hassle. Best wishes, Justin.

  33. Wonderful to have all the singles in one place in such fantastic sound!
    Thanks, once again!

  34. I've just played this all the way through. Outstanding. Many thanks!

  35. Listening to this as I type. The Byrds always make me happy. "It Won't Be Wrong!" I have all the 90s Byrds CDs and this is a wonderful companion. Thank you so much!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Thanks for this compilation - all hits, no misses!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Thanks again Prof!

  38. I have the songs in various cds, but now I can hear them the way I heard them originally on AM radio. But now they sound so much better! Thank you.
