The Definitive Byrds Compilation This two disc set presents an excellent overview of, perhaps, the most important American rock band. The first disc covers the period 1965-1967 even better than Greatest Hits, and every track is excellent. Disc 2 covers the high points of the up/down period from about 1968-1972. While not nearly as consistent as the first disc, the second disc is very good. Oddly, the Byrds 1973 reunion is ignored completely; ("Full Circle" and "Cowgirl in the Sand" would have been nice additions.) This album renewed my interest in the Byrds, and confirms their historical importance. By Paul (Little Rock, AR) This review is for a different format.
