Five Best: Byrds

Great folk-rock here from L.A.  Besides being a top group of the 60's, they were really a springboard for future success for their members, and a key part of The American Rock Family Tree*.  David Crosby of course went on to huge success with Crosby, Stills & Nash.  Chris Hillman was a part of the Souther-Hillman-Furay Band with J.D. Souther and Richie Furay.  James McGuinn, Gene Clark and Hillman later recorded as a trio, while Mike Clarke later joined the Flying Burrito Brothers and Firefall.  With Honorable Mention to "Mr. Spaceman", here are the Five Best from the Byrds:
1.  Turn!  Turn!  Turn!

2.  Mr. Tambourine Man

3.  Eight Miles High

4.  My Back Pages

5.  So You Want To Be A Rock & Roll Star
