Tr. 05-08 are still unique to this vinyl-only release* and were taken from my old 2008 rip:

Technics 1210mk2 with AT-440 MLa stylus > M-Audio Microtrack 24/96 (A-D conversion 24 bit, 96kHz) 
NB: Audition 1.5 was used for adjusting DC bias, editing (incl. manual removal of clicks and pops), adding gain & collapsion  of the right and left channel to mono.

v1.0: 31-01-2008 (rip from Sundazed 2LP 24/96)
v2.0: 26-08-2021 (newly compiled, mostly from CD sources; EQ applied to old vinyl rip to correct the tone to neutral and also carefully de-essed) 

* not counting "Original Singles A's & B's 1965-1971" [2CD Sony Records Int'l 2012] which for inexplicable reasons was mastered from very poor quality sources

"When 'Mr. Tambourine Man' first rumbled out of car radio speakers in 1965, it was a pivotal moment in pop history. With its jangling 12-string and epic sweep, it was the dawn of a new day: 
the birth of folk-rock. And the Byrds were just getting started. The next two years saw one hit after another, from the Biblical prophesies of 'Turn, Turn, Turn' to the raga-rock of 'Eight Miles High', from the exotic orchestration of 'So You Want To Be A Rock 'N' Roll Star' to the Byrds bringing it all back home with 'My Back Pages'. 

Here they are again, 30 landmark recordings in their perfectly constructed, radio-friendly mono mixes: the forgotten rarities, withdrawn singles and, of course, all the original A and B-sides. No one has ever had a stronger run of singles than did the Byrds in their prime. No one."
