* ConceptAlbum: [=McGuinn=]'s initial plan for what would become ''Sweetheart Of The Rodeo'' was to record a double album that would showcase a history of American popular music, starting with early bluegrass and Appalachian music, then moving through country, jazz, R&B, rock, and finally culminating in electronic music played on the Moog synthesizer. The concept led [=McGuinn=] to look for a pianist with a jazz background, which was how Gram Parsons was recruited into the band.

The single was followed by two albums, ''Music/MrTambourineMan'' and ''Turn! Turn! Turn'', which relied heavily on [[CoverVersion covers]] of other songs, generally by Music/BobDylan or traditional folk songs, with original songs mostly contributed by Gene Clark. The latter album also had an EarlyBirdCameo for their future musical direction, as Hillman, whose musical background was more bluegrass/country than the others' folk, convinced the band to cover "Satisfied Mind". However, the band got bored with folk-rock and began to experiment with PsychedelicRock on ''Fifth Dimension'', which provided another hit with the creepy "Eight Miles High".

'''The Byrds''' were a band active in TheSixties who were the {{Trope Maker}}s for the genre of [[FolkMusic Folk Rock]] (alongside Music/SimonAndGarfunkel), although they experimented with different genres throughout their career such as PsychedelicRock and CountryMusic. The band was formed initially as a duo comprised of Jim (later Roger) [=McGuinn=] and Gene Clark as guitarists and singers. Third guitarist [[Music/CrosbyStillsNashAndYoung David Crosby]] soon joined up, and the Byrds was born. Drummer Michael Clarke (recruited partly because of his resemblance to [[Music/TheRollingStones Brian Jones]]) and bassist Chris Hillman joined shortly after the formation. Thus, the "classic" Byrds line-up was born. Thanks to their manager Jim Dickson's connections, they got signed to Creator/ColumbiaRecords.
