** They Covered Up "Jesus is Just Alright", first recorded by the Art Reynolds Singers, only to have The Doobie Brothers version Cover them Up.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Gene Clark and Gram Parsons both have reputations that transcend their brief stints as Byrds. While their solo work and [[DeadArtistsAreBetter untimely deaths]] have a lot to do with it, they both played important roles in the band's history. Clark was their best in-house songwriter on the early albums, and Parsons was responsible for their shift to Country Rock.
