Sealed copies of original pressings of both the mono and stereo pressings of They Byrds Greatest Hits
As with Bob Dylan, Columbia Records released a “best of” album for the Byrds in 1967, containing songs from their first four albums. As was common practice at the time, the album was originally released in both mono and stereo, with the mono pressings deleted in early 1968. All subsequent pressings were offered for sale in stereo only.
Offered for sale here is an unusual pair – two copies of The Byrds Greatest Hits, one in stereo and one in the rare mono version. Both records are still sealed in their original plastic inner sleeves and have never been opened or played. Both are original pressings featuring the original 360° Sound Columbia labels.
The cover on the stereo pressing is a beautiful VG++, with just traces of wear on the corners. The mono cover is VG, with the beginnings of ring wear on the front and back of the cover. There is a drill hole in the upper left hand corner of the cover, and a sticker on the back cover that says, “Compliments of Eastern Electric Company.”
This is a rare opportunity to pick up both the stereo and rare mono pressings of The Byrds Greatest Hits with sealed, unplayed records. You likely won’t ever find them offered for sale as a pair again.
