New Byrds Box Set just released (13 CDs)

A new Byrds Box Set has just been released by Sony.

It’s called The Complete Columbia Albums Collection.

The box houses 13 CDs in 11 cardboard sleeves (replicas of the original vinyl covers) (11 singles and 2 gatefolds – Sweetheart Of The Rodeo Legacy Edition (2 CDs) and Untiltled / Unissued (2 CDs)).

Some of the covers are actual scans of used LPs, as one can clearly notice ringwear on the back.

The CDs are the remastered versions first issued in the 90s with bonus tracks.

There also is a 40 page booklet with all recording details (musicians, dates, etc…) and track-by-track comments.

Nothing new, but a nice object for completist collectors.
