The Beefeaters made just one single in 1964, and were in fact an early version of the Byrds. When the nucleus of the Byrds were struggling to define their sound (and indeed pioneer the folk-rock genre) in 1964, they called themselves the Jet Set. Their manager, Jim Dickson, arranged for them to record a single, more to give them experience than to take a serious crack at a hit. Although drummer Michael Clarke was in the group by this point, only Roger McGuinn (on guitar), Gene Clark (guitar), and David Crosby (harmony vocals) played on the session, filled out by Ray Pohlman on bass and Earl Palmer on drums. "Please Let Me Love You" recalled the early Beatles and Peter & Gordon; the more forceful "Don't Be Long" would be redone on the Byrds' second album, Turn! Turn! Turn!, as "It Won't Be Wrong." Both tracks were embryonic folk-rock, callow but catchy and pleasing.
