Sounding Off: Byrds album opened up new genre for Goldmine reader

I’m submitting my choice for most influential album of the rock era. Please note that I am specifying “influential,” not favorite. It could be successfully argued that there are many that were more important, but I am trying to avoid retracing the oft-taken route of praising Revolver and other notable efforts. Maybe I should say, “influential but less often mentioned.”
