Huge Byrds collection for sale


Byrds Flyght is parting with its huge collection of Byrds and Byrds-related items (records, reel-to-reel tapes, cassette tapes, CDs, CDRs, DVD, DVDrs, VHS video tapes, posters, books, magazines, etc…).


As far as records and CDs are concerned, we have a near-complete collection of every Byrds album release (official and unofficial) as well as every solo or group album release by the 11 ex-members and every participation by the 11 ex-members in other artists’ albums (except for recordings by and with David Crosby – we only have a few by him). We also have many 7’’ singles and E.P.s. Most of what we have can be viewed on Byrds Flyght’s pages.


So now is the time to get this rare item that you’ve been searching for for decades. Send an e-mail to Byrds Flyght at




with details of what you’re looking for, as well as the maximum price (including shipping) you’re willing to pay to get it. No funny low prices please. Serious offers only.


We will answer every e-mail, but of course we often have one copy only of each item. So don’t be disappointed if the answer is negative. If so, it’s either because the item has already been sold or because your offer doesn’t reach our own estimated value price. In the latter case, we will tell you so and give you a second chance to make a higher offer.

Starry Eyed And Laughing - Byrds fans, this is for you


STARRY EYED AND LAUGHING



This Byrds-influenced band led by Tony Poole has released a CD in October 2014; we’ve just been told about it.

It’s called FOREVER YOUNG.

The track listing should appeal to Byrds fans:

Roger McGuinn’s I’M SO RESTLESS,
Bob Dylan’s LAY DOWN YOUR WEARY TUNE and YOU AIN’T GOING NOWHERE (also on the Byrds catalogue),
HE WAS A FRIEND OF MINE (also done by The Byrds, this is the version with McGuinn lyrics),
Bob Dylan’s FOREVER YOUNG,
Also tracks by Stephen Stills and Jackson Browne.
The 10 remaining tracks are written by the band members.
