THE BYRDS

Original Singles A’s & B’s 1965-1971 (2012)
Just One More Reason To Turn Japanese

Hard to go wrong here. A 2CD collection from the terminally obsessive Japanese gathering all the single A & B sides from one of America’s best. A perk of 45 gathering is the few alt-versions that never made it to official albums. 52 tracks in all. Gettable at Amazon if you’re just as terminally compulsive as you are obsessive. Check the archives for The Byrds Bonus Track Reissue Series, Roger McGuinn’s (not quite) Complete Folk Den, Cardiff Rose and a rare live EP with Crowded House, and other Byrd-related unmentionables.

    I forgot to add that this package reminds me of the Todd Singles set. Amazing how obsessive the Japanese are about getting sets like this right
