TheByrds’ second album of 1965 led off with the heroic Los Angeles quintet’s second chart-topping single, “Turn! Turn! Turn!,” the song that placed them squarely on top of the mountain of a U.S. rock scene, feverishly bubbling away in answer to ’64’s British Invasion. The alchemical number, with lyrics straight out of the Bible’s book of Ecclesiastes, was a perfect fit for a growing hippie counter-culture about to turn the world upside down. “It Won’t Be Long” married chiming guitars to thrilling Byrds harmonies, while “Lay Down Your Weary Tune” and “He Was A Friend Of Mine,” the latter dedicated to recently assassinated President John F. Kennedy, were shining beacons of folk-rock at its very best. “The Times They Are A-Changing” is the perfect Dylan-penned anthem for a hip new generation, and “Satisfied Mind” emits just a sniff of country-rock yet-to-come.
