After the enormous success of Mr. Tambourine Man, sold out concerts and massive
television appearances, The Byrds developed rather quickly into a very
influential band along the lines of The Beatles, The Beach Boys and The Rolling
Stones. Spearheaded by founding member Roger McGuinn, The Byrds for over a
decade continued to be a major recording entity and delivered over a dozen of
the finest classic rock albums of our time.
With the turbulent sixties in full bloom, The Byrds (Roger McGuinn, David
Crosby, Gene Clark, Chris Hillman and Michael Clarke) embarked on a second LP
session with producer Terry Melcher and delivered the classic Turn! Turn! Turn!.
With a whole new audience developing from their recent radio and retail
exposure, this masterwork hit the upper rungs of the album charts and brought
the band continued acclaim. The LP consisted of some of their most memorable
songs including the blockbuster #1 single Pete Seeger's Turn! Turn! Turn! (To
Everything There Is a Season). The hit album also treated the fans to some newer
Byrds favorites like Gene Clark’s brilliant Set You Free This Time and Roger
McGuinn's classic It Won’t Be Wrong as well as two more Bob Dylan
interpretations The Times They Are A-Changin' and Lay Down Your Weary Tune, plus
more Byrds originals like the Crosby/McGuinn smash Wait and See.
Featuring the legendary twelve string guitar and vocals of Roger McGuinn,
the soulful voice and guitar of David Crosby, the thundering bass and
vocals of Chris Hillman, the sorely missed guitar and vocals of the late
great Gene Clark and the powerful drumming of the late Michael Clarke,
The Byrds’ Turn! Turn! Turn! was a global hit album. To this day it is
consistently recognized as one of the finest efforts in their deep catalog of
