The Byrds – Younger than yesterday

Younger Than Yesterday is the fourth album by the American rock band The Byrds and was released on February 6, 1967 on Columbia Records. It saw the band continuing to integrate elements of psychedelic rock into their music, a process they had begun on their previous album, Fifth Dimension. In addition, the album captured the band and record producer Gary Usher experimenting with new musical textures, including brass instruments, reverse tape effects and an electronic oscillator. The album also marked the emergence of the band’s bass player Chris Hillman as a talented songwriter and vocalist.Crosby’s songwriting skills had also developed rapidly, with journalist David Fricke citing “Renaissance Fair” (co-written with McGuinn) as an example of his increasingly wistful lyricism and writing style. Rock critic Robert Christgau, writing for Rolling Stone magazine in 2007, called Younger Than Yesterday “the Byrds’ first mature album, a blend of space-flight twang and electric hoedown infused with the imminent glow of 1967 yet underlined with crackling realism.
