The Byrds-There is a Season

Columbia/Legacy

If ever a band merited two box sets, it would be The Byrds. In under a decade, the band pioneered what has collectively become known as Americana: folk rock, psychedelia, country rock and, eventually their through influence, alt-country.
 
“There Is a Season” improves on the first box set (now out-of-print) by giving a more complete picture of the band, beginning with the early recordings when they were known as the Beefeaters, then the Jet Set. Also included is a DVD with historic performances of such classics and “I’ll Feel a Whole Lot Better” and “Turn! Turn! Turn!” What emerges is a sound that will forever be associated with classic pop: perfect melodies, soaring harmonies and that glorious Rickenbacker jangle.  
 
With 99 tracks, this is essential listening for any fan of rock, folk or country.
