The Byrds : My Back Pages

I am usually trying to post songs and/or write about music on here that aren’t as well-known as Dylan’s My Back Pages, but I have loved this song as long as I can remember. Another Side Of Bob Dylan is equally an album of which the same can be said. Dylan’s version is (of course) excellent as well, and with its simple acoustic guitar accompaniment (and that voice) pretty much unbeatable to me ear. At the same time I think that McGuinn’s vocals and the typical Rickenbacker Byrds sound add considerably to it and make it one of the best songs they have ever recorded (which is saying something about a group with an output as good as theirs)
