yeah i know...me neither
the original dylan songs they cover
they're about £5.
Their best albums are the first one and Younger Than Yesterday.
My favourite period of them is what they did on Fifth Dimension though, because my 2 favourite instruments are sitars and Rickenbacker guitars. And that record sort of blends them.
I love the Byrds, but their albums can be a bit patchy. Only exception is Sweetheart of the Rodeo, which is solid gold, but quite atypical of their stuff. Of the other albums, I'd go for Fifth Dimension, which I love despite the filler.
You should be able to get a lot of the albums cheap these days, so buy several, but I'd go for _Younger Than Yesterday_ or _Notorious Byrd Brothers_ to start with.
