I've always considered the Byrds as making music where if they had never existed, and showed up out of nowhere tomorrow playing exactly what they played over a half-century ago, their sound would still
be considered fresh. They really did create a sound that was unique.
Gotta see "Echo in the Canyon," I've heard from others it's really good.
