  2. joan baez
    procol harum

    and just possibly, the greatest of the 60s or any other time, the beatles

    the kinks
    the small faces
    jeff beck

    I could go on (in fact, I will)

    Peter Paul and Mary

    without a doubt the greatest era of popular music ever; writers were using typewriters, not cash-registers :wink:.

    The Grateful Dead
    The Masters Apprentices

  8. Janis Joplin (Big Brother & The Holding Company)

    And a coupla Aussie ones, (well, Aussie immigrants) :

    The Loved Ones
    The Easybeats
  9. Yes, Soft Machine, The Velvet Underground, MC5, John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers, Chicago, The Beach Boys, Four Tops, The Band, Captain Beefheart, Traffic, Wilson Pickett, Family, Simon and Garfunkel, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Byrds, Barclay James Harvest, The Nice.
  10. Yes. Green is great, as are Spencer and Kirwan, but Buckingham is my favourite. He was just awesome at the Sydney show.

    Fleetwood sure has an ear for guitarists.
  11. and an eye for women :LOL:
  12. in particular "Workingman's Dead" and "American Beauty".

    for the West Coast country/rock - folk/rock sound:
    The Byrds
    Country Joe & the Fish
    New Riders of the Purple Sage

    for some good electric blues:
    Paul Butterfield Blues Band
    Super Session - Mike Bloomfield, Al Kooper and Stephen Stills
    The Electric Flag
    John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers
    (Mayall has been one of the most influential musicians ever. Eric Clapton, Peter Green, Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Mick Taylor and many more have been members of Mayalls band at some time)

    Blood Sweat & Tears
    Crosby, Stills and Nash
  13. Oh yes...

    Arlo of course :)
    - not just Alice's Restaurant but also some of his other earlier albums.

    and Hornet - how could a dedicated Parrothead like you forget early Jimmy Buffett in his pre- Margaritaville days. :-s
    with albums such as
    White Sports Coat and a Pink Crustacean,
    A1A (although that's really early 70's)
  14. Johnny Winter

  15. Oh yeah!!... Frankenstein!!
  16. King Crimson
    Emerson, Lake & Palmer
    Velvet Underground
    Allman Brothers
    Quicksilver Messenger Service

    and who could possibly forget (even though I'd like to)
    In-a-gadda-da-vida by Iron Butterfly,
    Procul Harum
    The Incredible String Band...
  17. ..Freddy and the Dreamers ...The Shadows
  18. Go along with all of those pretty much, but draw the line at Joplin. She wasn't a singer, I doubt she was even a musician. And I know I shouldn't speak ill of the dead so don't remind me.
  19. Check out a group called Focus. The guitarist is a god known as Jan Akkerman, quite extraordinary.
