Thanks for posting this! According to all available information (taken from the "There Is A Season" box-set and Johnny Rogan's "Timeless Flight" sessionography) both tracks are the genuine first versions of these songs, recorded on June 28, 1965. This should also be the same version of "The Times They Are A-Changin'", which has been performed on October 4 that same year by The Byrds on US-TV "Hullaballoo". It was LP-version 3, that was recorded on September 1, despite some misinformation by Sundazed Records.
