On July 24th, 1965 The Byrds were at No.1 on the UK singles chart with their version of Bob Dylan‘s song Mr Tabourine Man.
This was the first song by Bob Dylan to reach the No.1 spot. The Byrds’ version of this song was influential in submerging folk and rock music. Many contemporary bands would go on to mimic this fusion.
