Re: The Byrds versus the Yardbirds!

The Byrds. One of the bands from the mid-60s whose music still sounds as original and fresh today as it did back then.

I would never say this version is better than the Band's but TDN did a fun version and it became a staple in their concerts so others liked the version also.

That album (if my memory serves me) may be the only one (or two) with vocals. The majority of his stuff are instrumentals.
