The Byrds plunged into psychedelic music on their third outing. By 1966 Gene Clark had left the band and Jim (Roger) McGuinn had begun to assert more control. His 12 string Rickenbacker electric guitar is all over the album and bonus tracks. This is the place to hear him cut loose. David Crosby begins to emerge with What's Happening, a preview of his woozy songwriting on the next couple albums. There is space rock (Eight Miles High, I See You), folk rock (Wild Mountain Thyme, John Riley), protest music (I Stand And Knock At Every Door) and a throwaway or two (Mr Spaceman). The band even is out in front of Pink Floyd; listen to the added tape sounds on The Lear Jet Song. Although there are a few flaws, this may be the highest The Byrds ever flew.

This album is excellent on its' own,even without bonus tracks! Our band used Captain Soul as our Break song for a while! The Lear Jet Song,Hey Joe Excellent Stuff!"We played their fast-paced version of Hey Joe as well!" Very nice vocal harmonies and slick guitar work! One side contrasts the other side,as more rock vs folksy-rock and it really works well. Probably their BEST if you are a fan of The BYRDS!

I like to collect all the CDs by The Byrds so I just had to get this one. I only liked a few songs on it though. In my opinion the best songs are... 1. 5D (Fifth Dimension), 3. Mr. Spaceman, 4. I See You, 7. Eight Miles High

At this point the Byrds are topping themselves with every new release and this third album has some fantastic cuts. Among the bonus tracks we get the greatest bonus cut ever released: the alternative version of "Eight Miles High"! What an amazing song. This version of "8 miles high" is a little more jazzy, a little more spontaneous, and it manages to even improve on the classic version everyone knows from the original album. Highly recommended.
