Here’s more proof that everyone was listening to everyone else back in 1965, and studying what they heard.
Released just a couple of months prior to the Byrds’ “Mr. Tambourine Man,” “Bringing It All Back Home” was hot off the presses, containing Dylan’s acoustic version of the song that Byrds used to launch their career. At virtually the same time, both George Harrison and Roger McGuinn were utilizing a chiming twelve-string guitar sound to provide some definition to the band sound.
Back then, ideas seemed to be interchanged with little concern for who might be stealing ideas from whom. The reborn rock and roll scene was still a small community, with The Beatles ruling Great Britain, Dylan redefining the sound of New York folk, and the Byrds inventing a West Coast hybrid that drew heavily from the other two.
