This is a project I’ve been working on for weeks.
The idea is to reconstruct the 13 original Byrds LPs with cover versions.
They are presented in the chronological order of the recordings (which means that disc 1 is Preflyte, although the LP was released in July 1969, between Dr. Byrds & Mr. Hyde and Ballad Of Easy Rider).
