The Byrds were an American rock band that were formed in Los Angeles, California in 1964.

The bulk of the band’s releases were issued on Columbia Records or its subsidiaries, with a notable exception being their final studio album from 1973. This final album, titled Byrds, and its accompanying singles (“Full Circle”, “Things Will Be Better”, and “Cowgirl in the Sand”) were all released on Asylum Records. In addition, the band released a single under the pseudonym of the Beefeaters in October 1964 on Elektra Records (Pye Records in the UK), before they had signed a recording contract with Columbia.

The Byrds’ discography was originally released on the vinyl format, as full-length LPs, shorter EPs, and singles. Since the 1960s, the band’s back catalogue has also been released on reel-to-reel tape, audio cassette, 8-track tape, CD, MiniDisc, digital downloads, and, most recently, as streaming media. Between 1965 and 1968, the Byrds’ albums were released in both mono and stereo variations, with Sweetheart of the Rodeo being the first album to be released exclusively in stereo in the US (Sweetheart of the Rodeo and its follow-up Dr. Byrds & Mr. Hyde were both issued in mono and stereo configurations in the UK).
