The Byrds Box Set (1990) 4 CD @flac
The Byrds is a boxed set released by American band The Byrds in 1990 on Columbia Records. A four-CD package, it is a career-spanning set (save for the 1973 reunion album released on Asylum Records, Byrds.).
This release is notable for its inclusion of rare and unreleased songs (many of which turned up as bonus tracks on the remastered CDs of the individual albums). It is also notable for its four new recordings featuring Roger McGuinn, Chris Hillman, and David Crosby. Both Gene Clark and Michael Clarke, still living in 1990, did not take part in the reunion.
Reaching 151 in the U.S. charts, The Byrds provides a well-executed overview of the band and their music. It is currently out of print.
