I still keep my original 1967 mono vinyl LP as a treasure. Perfect space capsule soundtrack to present the Planet Earth culture to the whole Universe.

The Byrds at their best. An amazing album covering so many different musical styles and forms that it a miracle the album stands as a whole. This release also includes the singles released right after the album sessions concluded making this a "MUST HAVE" edition. The sound quality is great, but the music is awesome!

||The Byrds' Masterpiece|
The songwriting credits here are very democratic. Hillman gets several songs and all of them are impressive. Crosby's best work with the band is here as well. The musicianship is strong led by McGuinn's 12-string and Hillman's very competent bass. The highlights are superlative - Crosby's chilling Everybody's Been Burned, as good a song as he ever wrote, and the swirling, chiming Renaissance Fair; McGuinn's classic So You Want to Be a Rock 'N' Roll Star; and Hillman's double entendre Thoughts and Words with sitar-like guitars. The ONLY low point on the album is Crosby's blatantly self-indulgent Mind Gardens.

||A personal masterpiece|
At this time, the Byrds were easing out of the public spotlight, whether they wanted to or not. They had lost their most sensitive member, Gene Clark, to that very sensitivity, but they shouldered on and created this masterpiece. On "Fifth Dimension", they exploded into psychedelia, but on this album, they grounded it into slightly hippy realism. And it is this element that makes the best songs on this album. "Renaissance Fair", "So You Wanna Be A Rock'n'roll Star", "Time Between", "Everybody's Been Burned", all of them were absolutely amazing. It's a wonder that this album didn't sell as well as their earlier records, for this record beats those other relatively puny attempts hands down. The incusion of "Lady Friend" was a good choice for the reissue, especially with the controversy among the group surrounding that song. The Byrs were never more realistic, or more revealing and cutting-edge, than on this record, even though it didn't have a ton of hits like their earlier stuff. Give this album a shot, and you'll be kicking yourself in the behind for not thinking of getting this sooner. Look out, Sunshine Superman! Here's someone who's Younger than Yesterday!
