Dickson recognized the quality of the lyrics and immediately tried to talk Clarence White into recording it with his bluegrass band The Kentucky Colonels. Then Dickson offered the song to The Byrds but it was met with great resistance as well. At first Gene Clark sang lead but gave it up to McGuinn. Dean Webb from the Dillards showed up at the studio and taught them bluegrass harmonies which they added to the mix.
Dickson next invited Dylan and his friends to the studio and had the band perform the song and after hanging out together they developed some new enthusiasm for the piece. The contract was only offered to McGuinn, Clark and Crosby, the singers on the tape. Melcher insisted that Clarke and Hillman sit it out and let the pros perform. Top tier studio musicians like Glen Campbell and jazz great Barney Kessel came and went as take after take unfolded.
The band had no leverage. They had to produce a quality single in order to have a future at Columbia and he thinks that the finished product was done well. Once the single was in the can and being prepped by Columbia for marketing Dickson hooked the band up with places to play. In March they were back in the studio recording the remaining tracks for their album and when the single was released in May they went on the road and appeared on television.
Its influence was immediate. So out of the tension between progress and nostalgia rock and folk and the exigence of art for commerce music for record sales - folk rock evolved as a new leafy but deciduous branch on the tree of popular music. And forgive the obvious metaphor, but there perched the Byrds - talented musicians in the right place at the right time taking the right advice. Password Forgot login?

This book is my favorite of the series so far. It is very evocative for me of the feelings of freedom, discovery and trepidation generated by moving out into the world from a small town upbringing, especially in those times when everything was up to be questioned. When the author writes, for example, "doughnuts taste like freedom" I am there!
I like the questions the three of them ask and the movements they are making towards self-discovery. The settings and historical context are real and inter This book is my favorite of the series so far.
