THE BYRDS - 'All I Really Want To Do'/'I'll Feel A Whole Lot Better' (CBS 201796) Aug 1965
The second Byrds 45 coupled a Bob Dylan composition 'All I Really Want To Do' with the all time folk rock classic 'I'll Feel A Whole Lot Better' by Gene Clark and I think it's only right that this Byrds monster is number 1 on my L.A. mix.
'All I Really Want To Do' is a different mix than the one that appeared on the LP 'Mr Tambourine Man'. Surprisingly, this 45 sold poorly in America especially after the million selling debut record. Soon after the single was released the B-Side was promoted as the A-Side with DJ copies issued on red vinyl. Maybe because Cher's version of 'All I Really Want To Do' was out selling The Byrds version?
The British seemed to dig it more and it reached number 4.
