Product Description

Arriving just months after the folk-rock call to arms of their brilliant debut, the Byrds' second album closely follows the same formula, but what a formula: durable American folksongs (from Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan, and even Stephen Foster) and their own strong originals are laced with the band's keening vocal harmonies and chiming guitars in a mix since institutionalised as a perennial rock dialect. With Seeger's classic title song, the Byrds brought Ecclesiastes onto the charts, importing the urban folk movement's social and political consciousness to the pop mainstream. If the album couldn't repeat the revelatory impact of its predecessor, it's still an earful, from Gene Clark's urgent, ardent "It Won't Be Wrong" to Dylan's contemplative "Lay Down Your Weary Tune". Meticulously remastered, this restored version also boasts unreleased tracks and B-sides, including "She Don't Care About Time", noteworthy for a 12-string solo lifted from Bach. --Sam Sutherland

4.0 out of 5 stars Son of Tambourine Man 15 Jun 2007
Format:Audio CD
Coming within a year of their debut album, it's no surprise that The Byrds' second album is so similar in form. Even so, they seemed to have matured enough for this to be a more solid and polished production. My one minor quibble is the choice of some of the material. Gene Clark's songs showed that his contribution to 'Mr Tambourine Man' was no flash in the pan and he quickly developed his own writing style. In addition, the drone effect added to his 'If You're Gone' is eerily effective. Jim McGuinn's songs are also impressive, especially 'It Won't Be Wrong'.

With such fine material coming from within the band, I'd question why they dragged in some of the cover songs. They frequently mined Dylan with success, but I always felt that 'The Times They Are A-Changin'' worked better as a slogan than as a piece of music. 'Lay Down Your Weary Tune' is better and helps to vary the mood, but the traditional songs are unnecessary. The hit title track works well, though it's a bit long and could probably do to lose the ineffectual instrumental break. 'Satisfied Mind', another cover, doesn't really fit here.

The bonus tracks offer more than on other Byrds' reissues and David Crosby's instrumental, 'Stranger In A Strange Land', is a teaser. This is a worthwhile album for anyone who likes The Byrds, even though it lies in the impression made by the previous album.

By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
"Turn! Turn! Turn!" was the Byrds' second album and if it is not as good as their debut effort it is simply because this time around the sound was not as fresh. However, the seven bonus tracks with alternative versions and mixes of these songs is enough to ensure this reissue gets a five star rating even if you do think it is a second-level Bryrds album. Then again, the title track on this album is even better than "Mr. Tambourine Man," not only because of the way it sounds but because it is an original rather than a cover of a Dylan song. There are two more of those on this album, "Lay Down Your Weary Tune" and "The Times They Are A-Changing." The most interesting of the bonus tracks is a version of Dylan's "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue"). But this second album focuses more on original material, mainly by Gene Clark, who wrote "Set You Free This Time," "The World Turns All Around Her," and "If You're Gone." However, the most significant track on the album ends up being "Satisifed Mind," which represents the group's shift from folk-rock to country-rock throughout the rest of the Sixties. The Bryds put out six very good albums between 1965 and 1968, a track record that is exceeded only by the Beatles during that period. Consequently, the Byrds are one of the rare groups from the Sixties where you should pick up most of their albums rather than being satisfied with just one of their hits collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic but eclectic sixties album 23 Dec 2003
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Some people regard the Byrds as an American version of the Beatles but although there are some similarities, I don't. They didn't write all their own songs and their interest in folk and country music was much greater than that of the Fab Four. This eclectic 1965 album, with added bonus tracks, is a case in point. The line-up for this album, produced by Terry Melcher, was Jim McGuinn, Gene Clark, David Crosby, Chris Hillman and Michael Clarke.
The title track, a huge American pop hit but only a minor UK hit, is a cover of a Pete Seeger song. Pete's song was not really original - he had taken the lyrics from the bible and adapted them to create the song. It had been recorded by several folk singers including Judy Collins, but the Byrds made it into a pop song.
Bob Dylan was a strong influence. The original album contained two of his songs, Lay down your weary tune and The times they are a-changing. You get those here, plus It's all over now baby blue and an alternative version of The times they are a-changing. Dylan was a major influence on Gene Clark, who wrote three songs for the original album plus others that appear as bonus tracks.
The album also includes a cover of Satisfied mind, the first country song to be covered by the Byrds. Satisfied mind was originally a country hit for Porter Wagoner, whose other country hits included Green green grass of home (turned into a pop hit by Tom Jones), but whose most important contribution to popular music was to bring Dolly Parton out of obscurity and make her into a star.
The most unlikely song to be included here is Oh Susannah, the traditional folk song, which the Byrds update nicely for the sixties.
The eclectic nature of this album may not please everybody, but if you have broad musical tastes, this is a real treat. If not, you may find that you like some tracks and not others.

5.0 out of 5 stars a top notch Byrds record! 4 April 2005
Format:Audio CD
Many fans consider this as a second rate album but to my ears its an improvement on Tambourine Man only let down by a couple of weak tracks...Wait and See Oh Susannah and a rather unconvicing version of Times they are a changing (though there is a much better version as a bonus track )
it comes across as a bigger bolder record and more eclectic.This is apparent with the title track of the all time great singles...and tracks like Lay Down Your Weary Tune and If You`re Gone not forgetting the stunning Set You Free This Time
The bonus tracks are excellent especially She Dont Care About Time ( relegated at the time to a b side ) and The Day Walk..two Gene Clark songs left of the original vinyl due possibly to the other band members resistance to his increasing song writing royalties
All in all a great record in my opinion and one of the Byrds best..but there was even better to come !!

4.0 out of 5 stars They are getting better, and start to diversify.
My major issue with The Byrds' debut album was its lack of diversity in its vocal and harmonic approach.
