Younger Than Yesterday. David Crosby, Roger McGuinn, and especially Chris Hillman come into their own as songwriters on an eclectic but focused set blending folk-rock, psychedelia, and early country-rock. The sardonic "So You Want to Be a Rock & Roll Star" was a terrific single; "My Back Pages," also a small hit, was the last of their classic Dylan covers; "Thoughts and Words," the flower-power anthem "Renaissance Fair," "Have You Seen Her Face," and the bluegrass-tinged "Time Between" are all among their best songs.
Beyond their trademark sound-Roger McGuinn’s shimmering 12-string Rickenbacker and Gene Clark and David Crosby’s smoke and honey harmonies-the Byrds were musical game changers who transformed rock ‘n’ roll three times. With brilliant arrangements of Bob Dylan’s Mr. Tambourine Man and Pete Seeger’s Turn, Turn, Turn, they forged the folk-rock sound of the mid-’60s. When The Byrds released Younger Than Yesterday on February 6, 1967, four of the album’s best songs were penned by Hillman. Before joining McGuinn, Clark and Crosby, Hillman’s background was in bluegrass, playing mandolin before picking up electric bass. single from The Notorious Byrd Brothers whose album cover photo depicted now just three original members of The Byrds. In the fourth stall, David Crosby had been replaced by a horse.
Roger McGuinn is the first full-length solo album by Roger McGuinn, released in 1973. This album was released after The Byrds' 1973 reunion album, on which all five founding members of the group participated in the sessions. McGuinn himself has stated that any outtakes left over from those sessions appeared here, but this was later proven to be false with the discovery of several alternate takes and at least one outtake in late 2009.

The solo Albums of the Byrds frontman and guitarist Roger McGuinn, plus song tracks for each album. The closest I ever came was back in the late seventies when MCH released the first album. They were touring with America. I called ticketmaster WAY early, and managed to get FRONT ROW SEATS! (They were scheduled to open for America playing at Nassau Coliseum on Long Island). Only in my late teens and a huge fan of the Byrds, I had just recently discovered "Chestnut Mare" and was blown away. I couldn't wait to hear the new MCH sound (I loved the new album, slick-sounding as it was) and hoped to hear Chestnut Mare. Boy, was I ever totally bummed out when the show was cancelled
Their fourth album; many fans consider it to be their strongest album of the psychedelic era. It was their first album recorded with no contributions from Gene Clark; as a result, bassist Chris Hillman stepped up to the plate and wrote four new songs. Roger McGuinn and Chris Hillman wrote it about the success of manufactured bands like The Monkees. Roger says that people think it was meant to be mean spirited, but it's not. - Gg2000.
