The Byrds: “Have You Seen Her Face” (1967)

If you’re a Byrds fan, you probably haven’t missed it. But if you’re “younger than yesterday” and your knowledge of 60’s pop has been mostly been radio-dependent, there’s a good chance you haven’t come across this one.

Fact is, as important and influential as the Byrds were and are, they weren’t a huge singles act, scoring only three top 20 hits total. And when you consider that “Mr. Tambourine Man” was a Dylan song and “Turn! Turn! Turn!” was co-written by Pete Seeger and God, “Have You Seen Her Face” was the second-highest-charting of their own compositions (after “Eight Miles High”). Still, it deserved a better fate than its #74 placing.
