Record Store Day 2012 Limited Edition release



The Byrds’ “Mr. Tambourine Man” played a massive role in defining rock music in the sixties: it introduced the song’s composer to a wider – and younger – rock audience and, more than any other recording or event, it ushered in the reigning sound of ’65, folk-rock. But most importantly, it announced one of the essential musical experiences of the era, The Byrds. And if “Mr. Tambourine Man” sounded like an electric symphony, Gene Clark’s “I’ll Feel A Whole Lot Better” captured the group’s need to let loose musically with a thrilling up-tempo arrangement - one that would launch a thousand U.S. garage bands. Clark's unparalleled gift for songwriting was matched by a unique, at times world weary vocal delivery which is perfectly captured on the rare, alternate vocal take version of “I’ll Feel A Whole Lot Better,” included here. Also from the Mr. Tambourine Man album sessions, “It’s No Use” demonstrates that a raw Byrds album outtake is as good or better than most band’s finished masters. Sourced from the original, Columbia Records mono masters, these songs evoke the excitement of the Byrds at take-off, blowing minds and filling the dance floor at Ciro’s on the Sunset Strip.
