Number 124 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums
Four of the five original members of The Byrds appear on Younger Than Yesterday, their fourth album recorded in 1966 and released in 1967. Time has shown it to be among the most durable of the band's albums. David Crosby, Roger McGuinn and Chris Hillman come into their own as songwriters and Michael Clarke continued to mature into an impressive drummer. The album successfully expands their musical styles into several different directions yet remains a focused and blending folk-rock, heavy psychedelia, jazz influences and early indicators of the country rock direction the band later pursued.
