Here’s your chance to own five Byrds singles from 1965 and 1966 that almost existed... Comprised of unique mono mixes readied for release and then shelved at the last minute by Columbia Records, several of the cancelled songs on these 10 sides were later revisited and re-recorded; others, for reasons unknown, would remain unissued until now. The ’65-’66 era-Byrds possessed an unimaginable wealth of talent and vision. The group produced so many wonderful recordings that the process of choosing the next “hit single” was no easy task. The writing and recording skills of the band were being honed at lightning speed; as one session was nearing its end, the next studio date was already being envisioned. This scenario created an absolute wealth of finished Byrds’ masters, many of which served as candidates for potentially successful 45rpm single release.

The Byrds’ studio experiences captured herein were nurtured and guided by some of Columbia Records’ most visionary producers of the time: from the assertive, hands-on approach of Terry Melcher, who would shape and mold the obvious but raw talent of the defiant young Byrds into one of Columbia’s hottest properties on the teen market; and Allen Stanton who, amid the turmoil of the group’s first personnel change, helped guide the members through major artistic-growth during the masterful Fifth Dimension sessions; to Gary Usher, whose laid-back style and studio-diplomacy allowed the band to exercise near-complete artistic control and creative freedom, while simultaneously maintaining the unique Byrds Sound.

Housed in beautiful full-color picture sleeves featuring previously unseen photos, these gorgeous singles also feature period-accurate Columbia labels. This set also includes a 4-page "Cancelled Flytes" fold-out with rare archival photos and complete session details about the recordings!
