Twee # 28 The Byrds

Twee for the 'I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now,' line as well as the whole damned beauty of the thing. The Byrds were the very best Dylan interpreters of all of course in terms of clarity and melody. The photo above could well act as an early catalogue checklist for all things Twee. Note leather and suede jackets, Crosby's hat and pipe, McGuinn blowing bubbles, the hooped t-shirts and tight trousers. A thousand indie guitar bands took note.
