The Notorious Byrd Brothers - THE BYRDS

Excellent 1968 LP by The Byrds, encompassing a beautiful mix between country rock & psychadelia. Essential listening for those already in the know & a real find for those new to the Byrds or genre. Would love visitor's thoughts on this great record.... http://rapidshare.com/files/341079569/byrds_-_the_notorious_byrd_brothers.zip


  1. Im just downloading the discography of the Byrds, and listening everyone as it has been recently relesed.
    Great taste of music and excellent album.
    Cheers from South Brazil!

  2. Oh yeah...this album right here is CLASSIC, a masterpiece. Its not underrated but somehow people just don't know about it. I first heard it when I was about 10, in the car as we were going up a mountain in gold country in northern california, on a fly fishing trip. There were pine trees every where and a river below and I just picture that scene every time I listen. It has an earthy feel to it so it was very fitting. Nothing compares.

  3. This was an all encompassing moment for me as a babe in the woods when this album first came out. I was a freshman in college, and still remember the very thought processes
