Subject: Folk rock - Got a favorite?
From: Big Mick
Date: 05 Jan 02 - 01:57 PM

Being born in 1951 meant growing up in the 60's. While my tastes these days runs much more to trad forms of folk and instrumental music, I must confess to still loving some of these groups.

My favorite band ever, when I was young, was Buffalo Springfield. Sure I loved The Byrds and others, but I just flat don't think that anyone ever even came close to what Dewey Martin, Richie Furay, Stephen Stills, Neil Young and the rest did. I have a CD player in the car which carries 10 CD's at a time. Despite the majority of the CD's being names like Bok, Muir, Trickett, Fielding, Paton, Profitt (thaks karenk), Marum, Stewart, Bothy (LOL), Folk Legacy, etc (you get the drift), the first slot always has "Retrospective" by Buffalo Springfield. Songs like For What It's Worth, Kind Woman, Rock and Roll Woman, Broken Arrow and Learning To Fly are on it. Every so often I just turn it on, open the windows and sing like I was 17 again. I occurs to me that my interest in folk music was enhanced and encouraged by listening to these folks and wanting to know where their music came from. And to this day I still love the dual leads that Stills and Young did on those albums. Broke my heart when they split up, but that is what happens when you have too many truly talented folks in one group. All one has to do is look at the groups that were spawned by the folks in this band to know how truly great they were. And one does wonder which of these songs will stand the test of time.

Who are your favorites from this era.

My favourite folk rock tunes are mostly by Dylan...but he insisted he was NOT playing "folk rock" at the time. He has never admitted to playing folk rock. Typical.

I also like "The Weight" and some others by Robbie Robertson and a lot of the Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young material...which is definitely folk rock. Buffalo Springfield and the Byrds were great too, and Jefferson Airplane had a couple of neat tunes here and there.

My favourite folk rock tunes of all time? "Jokerman" by Dylan...and "Just Like A Woman" by Dylan...and "Visions of Johanna" by Dylan.

I liked Buffalo Springield, too, but until CSN&Y, the only song I knew by them was "For What It's Worth." Also liked America, Little Feat, Grateful Dead, and probably more I can't think of right now. I found Steeleye Span (I misheard the name and wrote it down as "Steel Ice Band") in the 70's, and along with Fairport, they got more play on my turntable than anyone else. Recently discovered (by me) band from the 70's: Five Hand Reel. The albums never were re-issued, and they're rare as hens' teeth. Max played one song from them - Carrickfergus - on a radio show.

I am sure that Simon and Garfunkel were considered as folk rock - especially because of the instrumentation used in "Sounds of Silence". They most certainly had an effect upon my musical upbringing. I quite nearly wore the grooves off every LP of theirs I had. The lyrics of many of their early songs have become part of my vocabulary (largely a tribute to Paul Simon, I know).

"...Like a rat in a maze, the path before me lies..."
"...And I watch as her breasts softly rise, softly fall..."
"...His heart is laughing, screaming, pounding..."
"...And as I watch the drops of rain, weave their weary paths and die..."
"...I kissed your honeyed hair with my grateful tears..."
"...When I look back on all the crap I learned in high school, it's a wonder I can think at all..."

I'm sure I could go on.

Lord, yes! How did I forget Simon & Garfunkel? That was great folk rock for sure, and I also played those albums again and again.

Paul Simon even did a parody of Dylan called "A Simple Desultory Phillipic (Or How I Was Robert McNamara'd Into Submission)! It was derivative (obviously), but kind of neat.

When I heard it, I thought of writing a letter to Paul Simon saying...

"You know, Paul, I find most of your material a bit, well, wimpy...a bit too "New York angst" and overly delicate and affected...but this new tune 'A Simple Desultory Phillipic (etc...)' goes off in a totally bold new direction...savage in its intensity, biting in its lyrical punch, uncompromising in its delivery, startling in its imagery! In short, a masterpiece! Paul, I think if you just would do more material along these lines, you will be destined for greatness. I await your new album with the highest hopes that you will enlarge on this first effort in what promises to be a revolutionary musical style without peer!

Your faithful fan,

Little Hawk :-)

(Paul Simon's very good, but he ain't no Bob Dylan. Wonder what he would have said?)

Hey, Crosby Still and Nash ' Teach your children well' - I love that song. I also have to confess a love for Rod Stewart....I was brought up on Rodders. Every Sunday morning mum and dad would play the Best of Rod Stewart while they did the house work. Not very folky I know, but he does do a great version of Blooming Heather (Purple Heather) It's well worth a listen and his voice is wonderful (of course, I could be biased!)

Gram Parsons. I don't know what the hell form of rock, folk, country, or whatever....but the guy had something real special. I'd also go with Hawk in saying that a lot of Dylan's stuff certainly fits the category and then add in damn near everything that The Band ever did....tremendous group even with that lowlife Robertson. CSNY has to be up there too.

But I really have to agree with Allan in a big way. S&G were wonderful, but the lyrics of Paul Simon are simply spectacular. As a "wordsmith"....not a poet, songwriter or whatever, but simply as a wordsmith, I don't think he has an equal. Interestingly enough though, he writes the words to rhythms and patterns, and as much to lines that just pass through his head as any particular imagery or symbolism. They all have a certain flow, a specific feel. And how many people can get by using "crapped out" in a slow ballad? Sometimes they force your mouth to work and that's part of the fun......"He was a mean individual stranded in a limousine." And for all of that lack of emphasis on imagery which he professes, it's hard not to think that you could possibly get any clearer picture from "The Mississippi Delta is shining like a National guitar."

funny...
for some reason I always draw a line (how very arbitrary of me) in the history of music, at the dissolution of Buffalo Springfield because this is when "folk rock" to me took on a different nature------a juggernaut that took the music "industry" by storm.

The nature of "folk" influence in music changed from truly folk, to singer/songwriter.

I see a big difference between The Byrds (god, how I loved them), BS, S&G,et al. ///// and the James Taylor, re-made-Carole King, Paul Simon sans Garfunkle, and then the CSN&Y,Eagles, Poco, Firefall, music that followed.

I even see CSN as three singer/songwriters accompanying each other, more than being the "supergroup" they were billed as (probably the keeping of personal identity has much to do with this perception).

Another change made in this era was a sort of refinement that included the allowance of experimentation, and the inclusion of more principles of music arrived at through a "jazz" mentality----hell, look at the left hand turn that happened in bluegrass at the same time (little coincidence that Clarence White would be found in the thick of the era). I mean, "newgrass" had its start at this point in time too.

Anyway, if it isn't Buffalo Springfield for me, then it's CCR (don't ask me why, but they always seemed as connected to "folk" as to rock)

perceptions are weird, aren't they?

Yeah, Mick, the Springfield were great. I try to play Expecting to Fly once in a while, but the beat changes play havoc with me. What was the song that went "when the dream came I held my breath with my eyes closed"?

I was a big Byrds fan '63-67, and loved Turn,Turn,Turn, Fifth Dimension and their other albums of that era. I started to lose interest about the time Crosby left and they recorded The Notorious Byrds Brothers. In retrospect, I've re-discovered many recordings from this era that I missed at the time, including the great Sweetheart of the Rodeo.

Another favorite was The Lovin' Spoonful. I also liked a couple of the Turtles' Dylan covers and even some of the Mamas and Papas hit material. Jefferson Airplane and the Grateful Dead had roots in Folk, though they followed other roads. Fairport Convention was a great Folk rock band, and were my intro to a lot of British Traditional music.

Funny thing about "folk-rock" though. In 65 and 66 when it was trendy, everyone, including the Beatles, was doing it. Rubber Soul and Revolver were essentially Folk rock albums, and groups from Jethro Tull to Led Zeppelin were incorporating the sound.

spaw,
I can remember sitting around listening to records in my trailer during college (yeah, I was traier trash back then---some things never change) and the words "...still, you don't expect to be bright and bon vivant so far away from home..." came over the speaker. My friend looked over at me and said, "who else writes like that?" --implied....nobody. He's certainly one of the best ever.



EJ,
Thanks for the reminder of so many good ones! I loved the 'Spoonful. One of my favorite childhood memories is waking up to "Do You Believe In Magic?" blaring on the home stereo. My brother had just picked the album and we played it all day.

You just beat me to it, Leej. Yeah, great song. And I loved Lovin' Spoonful, as well. I still love singing "Nashville Cats" to this day.

John Hardly and I met last summer, and I get to like the guy more as we go. John, you captured my next thought precisely, and it is an important one. And that is how Folk Rock changed, after Springfield. And it started down so many paths that were fascinating. I think your observation is spot on.

Simon and Garfunkel...........wow. Yeah, I remember hearing Sounds of Silence the first time. Al Lesert and I used to find bathrooms, locker rooms, whereever we could get the "shower" effect and sing this song a cappella. Paul Simon has been a love/hate thing for me for his whole career. Every time he gets out there on the edge, I love him. But when he falls into that "gotta make a hit" trap (Kodachrome), I just hate him.

The Byrds.........hmmmm. Of all the millions of versions of "Hey Joe" I have heard, I probably like theirs and Jimi's as well as any.........LOL.

The Band.........never was anyone any better than they were. I would have to say I liked them as well as anyone, but it was Springfield that got me going.

Bob Dylan....even though I never miss a concert when he is in the area, even though I agree that he may well have written some of the greatest songs ever, even though he had a tremendous impact on a generation, in spite of all that, I think he is over rated. He certainly ranks as one of the best. But is near-deity status, IMHO, is undeserved. Great? Yep. The greatest? Nope.

Must agree with Jeri about 5 Hand Reel - fortunate to have their 3 lps.

Obviously Fairport (upto 9) and Steel Eye (upto Below the Salt or the one after). Managed to see Steel Eye at B'Ham Town Hall in 1970 or so.

Original Albion Band was great - saw them at Reading in '73 I believe. And Sandy Denny at Reading U. when Gerry Conway and Trevor Lucas came on at the encore - basically Fotheringay after they disbanded!

Of the American stuff that would have approached "folk-rock" I suppose, the only group I really followed was It's a Beautiful Day"

Must admit apart from the folk I concentrated on numerous European (particuarly German) rock - the likes of Faust, Can and Amon Duul II - must admit also I still listen to this stuff much to the displeasure of my other half.

Cheers Rana

I'm not at all good at classifying music but I love to discuss it! I had a period some years ago when I checked out the history of the Byrds members through the years. I've always loved the Byrds! Just now listening to Lover of the Bayou, which is a bit different from the rest but very acrid (? Never sure if I use the right word...) You ain't going nowhere is my favourite. It was too long ago I listened to this tape!!!

From a friend who is most of all a country-fan I borrowed a CD with the Desert Rose Band and recorded. (Chris Hillman played with them) I just love Love reunited, One step forward and From a distance. Soooo… does somebody know if that is Folk rock? Or is it Country rock? Or is that the same thing???

I don't at all like (common) country as much as folk music but I'm not always sure where country ends and folk (rock) starts... Still I usually hear a big difference. I checked out Gram Parsons homepage now as he was mentioned here and it says "the worlds first and most outrageous Country Rock musician." But he's also mentioned here where folk rock is discussed.

Where are the bounds (?) between these different music styles? It's so interesting to discuss. And I guess I have some answers in my Rock Dictionary, which I read a lot when I was "researching". It's very nice to look in it again and it doesn't matter that it's from 1990 as all great stars were dead already then... ;-) Well, at least many of them...

My dictionary says that Gram Parsons band from 65 "The International Submarine Band" was the first real Country Rock group but before that he played in the folk music inspired group The Shilos.

Buffalo Springfield were great. My favorite song of theirs was "Kind Woman" God, I still love that song. Gram Parsons had an emormous effect(especially on Emmylou)despite the fact he never reached the pinnacle. There was a lot a great music that came out of the mellow marriage of folk and rock.

Mick, the thought of Lovin Spoonfuls "Nashwille cats" causes a big smile in my face! :-) I was born 1955 and already from 1966 I was absolutely crazy about pop music. I cried if I missed a pop program on the radio (very seldom) and my father went crazy as he wanted to listen to other programs!

well...this is where we ought to get into a debate about what constitutes "folk rock" most of the bands mentioned above were straight rock bands, even the Byrds, who really didn't do any rockefied folk music but rockefied acoustic music. Dylan was a folk singer/songwriter who then went rock. Grateful dead were a psychedelic country band. But if you're talking FOLK rock then Steeleye, Fairport, Albion Band are the ones for me. Though I love all the artists mentioned above, I would never call them folk rock.

So, who remembers Cat Mother and the All Night Newsboys, with Jay Unger on fiddle?.. Albion Doowah is a favorite album of mine, as is the Kaleidescope album titled Kaleidescope... never re-issued, either one, as far as I know... maybe I'll try eBay. I have both of the records, and they still sound fresh. And of course, I loved The Hangman's Beautiful Daughter by the Incredible Stringband... kinda precious rock, rather than folk rock, but it still sounds good to me. Their earlier album when they were a tree was close to a straight folk album. But then, they never really "rocked." I'd put the Holy Modal Rounders in there too... I remember Pete Stamfell when he was doing psychedelic Uncle Dave Macon as a solo.

Really early Stone Poneys ("Orion Look Down"). We Five. And the Zombies did an incredible and powerful anti-war song called "The Butcher's Tale" about WWI.

Heard a good interview with Eric Burden of The Animals a couple nights ago on NPR -- one of his early influences was Johnny Handle who was just one of the singers around town whom he used to hang out with. The Animals recorded more trad-based stuff than "House of the Rising Sun."

Steeleye and Fairport are still up there for me along with Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young and the greatest of them all for all you nodders out there, The Grateful Dead, great music to make love to...it just goes on for ever...or is that another thread...shit spaw done got me all darned confused and confubulated there.

So, Rick: What's all this about the Holy Modal Rounders? Pete Stampfel is an old Wisconsin boy who I heard many times in Greenwich Village in the early 60's at memorable joints like the Cafe Wha? and the Gaslight Cafe. AN old friend I used to play with, Luke Faust, joined the Rounders for a brief time, when they became the Bottle Caps. The first couple of albums of Timbuk Three have that same wacky feel to them as the Rounders, although not nearly as drugged out.

Love 'em or hate 'em, you had to love "I Want To Be A Bird."

The Lovin' Spoonful was my odds on favorite 60's band. But I like Buffalo Springfield a lot as well. But I will never forget the day I heard Connie Chung on NBC interview Beverly Sills, Bill Cosby and Johnny Cash. She had them discuss their favorites in music at the time and then Johnny lead them all in a chorus of "BOy Named Sue." Cosby, Sills Cash, and Chung have been my favorite quartet ever since.

This gets funnier by the minute.........you are so easy to get a rise out of. And that's what you want from others. Check this out, idiot. If you didn't care, you wouldn't have responded. You are so easy. I love it. Go ahead, rant away. No one cares. I say it again. YOu are so easy.

Now, back to the discussion.

Not really Big Mick because it is YOU who is responding to a nameless faceless poster. You just cant resist and you pawn it off as ME who cant. Thats the funniest part of all - a regular catter who should know better than to taunt and draw it out, yet here you are doing it. HAR HAR HAR You crack me up!!!!!!!!! You just dont realize how much of a joke you are! Ooooooooooo Big Mick is gonna show all the other catters that he can put a guest in their place - yeah right!

The Eagles.........hmmmmmm. Country Rock or Folk Rock? Probably a little of both. Another one that when they were on they were great, but one could always tell when they were pushin'.

Knew I forgot to mention someone in the UK Folk Rock league - the underrated(?) Mr. Fox, though did they actually have the "rock" part?

Mick, the Eagles were as folky as any of them. Half of the other bands named are probably only called "folk-rock" retrospectively. Pop was a different animal back then.

Yeah, I know Jeri. I have most of their stuff and the video from the reunion tour. I like them. They just had so many influences. I still think Seven Bridges Road is on of the great tracks ever. I used to love to listen to that on my KLH stereo. What voices, eh?
