The Byrds were an American rock band that were formed in Los Angeles, California in 1964.Although the band were only able to attain the huge success of contemporaries like The Beatles or The Beach Boys for a short period of time (1965–1966), they are today considered one of the most influential bands of the 1960s. In particular, the band were pivotal in originating the musical styles of folk rock, psychedelic rock, raga rock, and country rock. The Byrds underwent several line-up changes throughout their career, with frontman Roger McGuinn remaining the sole consistent member of the group until their disbandment in 1973. Rare Studio Outtakes & Sessions 1965-1967 is a fan compilated bootleg of rarities and alternate takes & mixes.

Fifth Dimension is the third album by The Byrds and was released in July 1966 on Columbia Records. Most of the album was recorded following the February 1966 departure of the band's principal songwriter Gene Clark. In an attempt to compensate for Clark's absence, guitarists Jim McGuinn and David Crosby stepped into the breach and increased their songwriting output. In spite of this, the loss of Clark resulted in an uneven album that included a total of four cover versions and an instrumental. However, the album is notable for being the first by The Byrds not to include any songs written by Bob Dylan, whose material had previously been a mainstay of the band's repertoire.

01 - 5D (Fifth Dimension)
02 - Wild Mountain Thyme
03 - Mr. Spaceman

Turn! Turn! Turn! is the second album by The Byrds and was released in December 1965 on Columbia Records. Like its predecessor, Mr. Tambourine Man, the album epitomized the folk rock genre and continued the band's successful mix of vocal harmony and jangly twelve-string Rickenbacker guitar. The album's lead single and title track, "Turn! Turn! Turn!", was a Pete Seeger adaptation of text from the Book of Ecclesiastes that had previously been arranged in a chamber-folk style by the band's lead guitarist Jim McGuinn, while working with folksinger Judy Collins. The arrangement that McGuinn used for The Byrds' version utilized the same strident folk rock style as the band's previous hit singles.

01 - Turn! Turn! Turn!
02 - It Won't Be Wrong
03 - Set You Free This Time
04 - Lay Down Your Weary Tune
05 - He Was A Friend Of Mine

Mr. Tambourine Man is the debut album by The Byrds and was released in June 1965 on Columbia Records. The album, along with the single of the same name, established the band as an internationally successful rock act and was also influential in originating the musical style known as folk rock. The term "folk rock" was, in fact, first coined by the U.S. music press to describe the band's sound in mid-1965, at around the same time that the "Mr. Tambourine Man" single reached the top of the Billboard chart. The single and album also represented the first effective American challenge to the dominance of The Beatles and the British Invasion during the mid-1960s.

01 - Mr. Tambourine Man
02 - I'll Feel A Whole Lot Better
03 - Spanish Harlem Incident
04 - You Won't Heave To Cry

Preflyte is a compilation album by The Byrds and was released in July 1969 on Together Records. The album is a collection of demos recorded by The Byrds (then named The Jet Set) at World Pacific Studios in Los Angeles during 1964, before the band had signed to Columbia Records. As such, the music on the album predates the release of The Byrds' debut single for Columbia, a cover version of Bob Dylan's "Mr. Tambourine Man", which topped the charts in America and the United Kingdom during 1965. The album's title is a deliberate misspelling of pre-flight, meant to emulate the misspelling of "birds" that the band had used for their name. In 2001, Sundazed Records released an expanded, double CD compilation of tracks from the World Pacific era, titled The Preflyte Sessions.

01 - You Showed Me
02 - Here Without You
03 - She Has a Way
04 - The Reason Why
05 - For Me Again
06 - Boston
07 - You Movin'
08 - The Airport Song
09 - You Won't Have to Cry
10 - I Knew I'd Want You

20/20 is the sole 1969 album release by The Beach Boys, and their last studio album to be released with Capitol Records for the next seventeen years. 20/20 got its name from its distinction of being The Beach Boys' 20th official album release (counting the three "Best of..." packages and Stack-O-Tracks). Brian Wilson poked fun at the title by hiding behind an eye examination chart inside the gatefold cover's photo. Otherwise, Wilson's involvement in the album was far less than perceived at the time. With increasing emotional problems, Brian Wilson began to withdraw from the band's recording sessions. He did participate on over half of the songs, but Wilson's only "new" contributions to 20/20 was a soothing waltz entitled (rather prophetically) "I Went to Sleep" and his and Mike Love's "Do It Again". It had been a hit in the summer of 1968, and was added on as commercial insurance, although a small snatch of the Smile-era "Workshop" session was hidden at the track's fade-out.

01 - Do It Again
02 - I Can Hear Music
03 - Bluebirds Over The Mountain
04 - Be With Me
05 - All I Want To Do

Friends is the fourteenth studio album by The Beach Boys, released in 1968. As work on the album began in February 1968, Mike Love, a recent convert to transcendental meditation (TM), departed on a two week trip to India (alongside The Beatles and Donovan) to study TM further with his new master, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. In his absence, the remaining Beach Boys, Brian Wilson, Dennis Wilson, Carl Wilson, Al Jardine and, now an official member, Bruce Johnston recorded the bulk of Friends along with selected members of The Wrecking Crew.

Smiley Smile is the twelfth studio album by The Beach Boys, issued in 1967.

Pet Sounds is the eleventh studio album by The Beach Boys, released May 16, 1966, on Capitol Records. It has been widely ranked as one of the most influential records ever released in popular music and has been ranked at #1 in several music magazines' lists of greatest albums of all time, including New Musical Express, The Times and Mojo Magazine. In 2003, it was ranked #2 in Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time list. Pet Sounds was created several months after Brian Wilson had quit touring with the band in order to focus his attention on writing and recording. In it, he wove elaborate layers of vocal harmonies, coupled with sound effects and unconventional instruments such as bicycle bells, buzzing organs, harpsichords, flutes, Electro-Theremin, dog whistles, Hawaiian-sounding string instruments, Coca-Cola cans and barking dogs, along with the more usual keyboards and guitars.
