The Byrds – Never again





The Byrds – Never again

SPA - The Early Years – 02-CD 3315 (Europe 1989)

* Tracks 12 and 16 (two Bob Dylan songs) are by a female singer backed by a band sounding like The Byrds. At the time this CD came out, the tracks were said to be demos for a then-unknown singer trying to jump on the “Dylan songs = hits” bandwagon and that the backing band was The Byrds. I have more than serious doubts about that but who knows?
