The single instantly established the band on both sides of the Atlantic, introducing the new folk-rock sub-genre into rock and roll which would quickly become America's answer to the British Invasion of 1964. The distinctive features of that single, the vocal harmonies of Gene Clark, Jim McGuinn, and David Crosby, along with McGuinn's embodiment of the "jingle-jangle" suggested by the lyrics on his twelve-string Rickenbacker guitar, became the signature sounds of the band during this early period.

Those sounds permeated the album, a mix of covers and originals, the latter mostly penned by Clark, the group's central songwriter over its first eighteen months of existence. The haunting quality of "Here Without You," and the hipness of "I'll Feel A Whole Lot Better," which became something of a rock and roll standard receiving many cover versions, announced an original talent. The band excelled with the Dylan material, with three songs taken from his transitional fourth album, leading to accusations of the band being too reliant on his work. The other covers were also chosen well, with the Pete Seeger tune stressing folk music roots, and especially Vera Lynn's yearning anthem of hope from the war years in Britain, "We'll Meet Again," given a very sardonic reading, the band undoubtedly influenced by the song's appearance at the end of Stanley Kubrick's dark comedy Dr. Strangelove. In an era where rock and roll albums were generally eleven tracks of filler surrounding the hit, since the market focus for the music was still the 45, the Byrds presented an album of high quality. Along with other 1965 long-player releases by Bob Dylan, The Beatles, and The Beach Boys, Mr. Tambourine Man eased rock and roll out of its adolescence as strictly a music of hit singles, the album form by the end of the 1960s becoming the key format for artistic expression in the genre, joining its peers in classical, jazz, and the popular music of earlier eras.
