Released: March 1966

Originally called 'Six Miles High' in reference to the altitude of a commercial flight, 'Eight Miles High''s less specific title had people thinking about drugs, and the song was duly banned in the States. Still, it's a remarkable record, reminiscent of free jazz in its loose approach as The Byrds' West Coast harmonic rock falls apart all around them.
