AllMusic Review by

A brief, ten-track sampler of the Byrds' Columbia Records output, this budget set has an odd assemblage of things, including obvious hits like "Mr. Tambourine Man" and "Eight Miles High," but also adds relatively minor album cuts like the group's so-so version of "Hey Joe" and David Crosby's then controversial "Triad," which was never actually on an official Byrds studio album. The end result is a hit-or-miss portrait of this important group.
