You know, there use to be so much good music.
Heavy Theta
The physical downside to this later period Byrds collection of albums is in the very cardboard sleeves themselves.
Axis, Bold As Love
If you like this music this is a fantastic bargain!

Why is it that most single disc compilations of the Byrds pack the album with their Dylan covers and neglect some of their best songwriting? I grew up with the old Byrds Greatest Hits album and always assumed Tambourine Man was the only good thing they'd ever done. It was only through these 5 albums that I realised I'd underestimated the band for so long. There's some great stuff on these albums, in particular I like the later albums, which have more of their own material. Don't get me wrong, I love Dylan and have all his stuff, but I think the best of the Byrds comes through on their originals. This set is best for someone who likes just the music, who isn't out to collect CDs like stamps or stickers, but actually wants to listen to them. Who cares if the cardboard CD covers are just made of cardboard when you're getting so much music for such a low price? If music to you is more like stamp-collecting, then rather go for the expensive Japanese box sets - these cheaper sets are for those of us who are interested in paying money for MUSIC, not expensive manufacturing processes.

This 5 disc set collects the first five albums from The Byrds (Mr. Tambourine Man, Turn! Turn! Turn!, Fifth Dimension, Younger Than Yesterday, and The Notorious Byrd Brothers) in mini-sleeve replicas of the original vinyl issues. The audio (which includes bonus tracks) is the same as on the Sony/Legacy reissues from the 90's. No booklets are included, just the five mini-jackets (which can damage your CDs if you are not careful) and a neat, sturdy slipcase which houses the discs, and also lists the bonus tracks.

I am not reviewing the contents of the CDs themselves (you can read them directly for every individual release), but rather evaluating the excellent value of the purchase. Much cheaper than getting the individual sets, and in a very neat looking (although not particularly "healthy" for the individual discs, I have to admit, as they risk scratches). And these five titles are all great art-pieces. Recommended if you didn't have these albums before.

If you don't already own these albums, here's your chance at an unbelievable price. This is an incredible string of albums that absolutely changed the course of pop music.

The Byrds instituted the folk-rock sound and then sheparded in the psychedelic scene. So many great songs. And here you have a collection of their first 5 albums all remastered to sterling sound. (I bought the wonderful box set back when, and the fidelity here is superior.) I'm a big fan of all these boxes. Lou Reed, Otis Redding, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Weather Report, Dr. John, etc. You know, there use to be so much good music.

I mainly bought this for "SWEETHEART OF THE RODEO" and The Ballad Of Easy Rider".

Even a good Byrds fans might have forgotten about some of these albums, but they are outstanding. I think when David Crosby and Gene Clark left the group, some folks stopped listening as much, and this is a great way to get in touch with the fine work done by later versions of what might have been the best band in America at the time. And, oh yeah, this is an economical way of listening to 5 great albums. Price them out individually and you'll be priced out of buying them. This is a sweet deal on some great sounds. The best music purchase I have made in a while.
