Of course I've heard the handful of songs that are commonly played but I've never owned any Byrds albums. Recently, I'm listening to XM radio and the station (underground garage, I think) sometimes plays some Byrds tunes I haven't heard - and they sound great to me, ahead of their time really. So what are the best Byrds albums to buy? I ask because I don't buy digital singles, rarely buy compilations - because I worry about missing out on some gems. I got to thinking about this stuff lately because of the Moody Blue's induction to the rock & roll hall of fame. They're an example of a band I liked, but sound much too dated for me to even listen to now. The Rascals, on the other hand are an old band that always sounded too pop for my tastes, until I recently noticed just how soulful, and occasionally raw, they sound. So I'm buying Rascals vinyl when I see it.
