I'm sure some readers out there will have read this article on Raouls 'Byrds Flyght' website, but I thought i'd post a link for those who hadn't.. it's pretty interesting if you're interested in the Byrds remastering project...

The only way to hear Byrds in their original form is to collect the old albums. The '96 to '00 masters a very good though, (I love 'em!) Irwin did a tasteful job.

As for mixing, most all Byrds were recorded on 1" eight track, and compression, reverb chambers and tape echos were added during the mix ..during the mixdown (taking place in the 60's). That can't be duplicated today, because the tube equipment at Columbia was removed around 1970. And Melcher is gone.

Anyway, 99% of the content (the Byrds themselves) is what we hear, no matter the mastering, remastering, or even remixing, thank God.
