THE JET SET - The Reason Why

 
THE JET SET - The Reason Why (Columbia KC 32183) 1973

Before The Byrds became The Byrds they had rehearsed and recorded demos at World Pacific studios as The Jet Set. This would have been sometime in late 1964.
Eventually these rehearsal tapes were released as 'Preflyte' in 1969, then reissued four years later.

Any Byrds fan needs to hear these 'work in progress' recordings especially for the many Gene Clark jewels. All of these performances sound like young teenagers mixing folk with beat and coming up with a sound that would dominate Los Angeles for the next couple of years.
