At 16 tracks, this single-disc set can only begin to hint at the depth and importance of the Byrds in the 1960s, but it's a well-chosen sequence, featuring the obvious hits "Mr. Tambourine Man," "Turn! Turn! Turn!," and "Eight Miles High," but also featuring key tracks that weren't big hits but are essential to a sense of this innovative band, like "I'll Feel a Whole Lot Better," the lovely and orchestrated "Wild Mountain Thyme," Gram Parsons' "Hickory Wind," and Roger McGuinn's epic "Chestnut Mare." The end result is a well-rounded portrait (even if it barely scratches the surface) of the Byrds.
