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

Re: The Byrds versus the Yardbirds!

I absolutely love Roger The Engineer by the Yardbirds but the Byrds have a stronger selection of songs.

The Byrds...........even though the Yardbirds gave rise to Clapton, Beck, and Page...The Byrds had better song writing and a deeper catalog of music.

Exclamation Re: The Byrds versus the Yardbirds!

This is a tough one for me since both bands have recorded stellar material I really like. My personal ranking however of their greatest hits would be as follows:

1. Heart Full of Soul - Yardbirds
2. Turn! Turn! Turn! - Byrds
3. Over Under Sideways Down - Yardbirds
4. Still I'm Sad - Yardbirds
5. Mr. Tambourine Man - Byrds
6. My Back Pages - Byrds
7. For Your Love - Yardbirds
8. Eight Miles High - Byrds

So the Yardbirds it is!
