    The Byrds Fly Eight Miles High

    Although overlooked by their more successful British contemporaries, the Byrds were every bit as big in the mid-to-late 60s, releasing great albums and hit songs like "Mr. Tambourine Man", "Turn! Turn! Turn!", "Eight Miles High" and "My Back Pages". In this collection, which includes the Byrds' first five albums, you'll hear how the Byrds started as an electric folk rock band and soon developed a unique sound of their own, incorporating elements of folk, jazz and psychedelia to record some of the best albums of the 60s. The Byrds were a major influence of alternative rock bands in the 80s such as R.E.M. and The Dream Syndicate, so if you want to hear the sounds that gave birth to alternative rock, I highly recommend this collection.
