The list author says: "Like '60s music? I do! For some peace, love, and flower power, check out these suggestions for folk-rock tunes of the decade. Then see my other Listmanias for related genres from this same era.""
"Tim Buckley. Though his later albums delved more into experimental jazz-rock sounds, his earlier albums like Goodbye and Hello reflected a beautiful folk-rock style. My fave: "Phantasmagoria in Two.""
"Simon & Garfunkel, the most successful folk-rock duo of the decade. Their low-key, harmony-driven sound scored them big hits like "Mrs. Robinson," "Bridge Over Troubled Water," and "Scarborough Fair.""
"The Lovin' Spoonful, an East-Coast counterpart (and chart rival) to the Byrds. They hit it big with their singles "You Didn't Have to Be So Nice," "Summer in the City," and "Do You Believe in Magic?""
"Seemingly singled out for tragedy all his life – fire, death, disfigurement, depression, drugs, divorce, loss of a child, physical problems, homelessness, even a final rally interrupted by a random shooting leaving him partly blind – the obscure Frank had one of the saddest stories in music, but his tunes influenced the likes of Denny, Drake, Jansch, and Paul Simon, who produced his sole album."
"Leonard Cohen. Originally an author, he didn't begin a music career until his 30s. His "Hallelujah" was later covered on Jeff Buckley's 1994 album, Grace, and also featured in the 2001 hit film Shrek."
"Incredible String Band. The British folk-rock outfit blended Celtic traditions with Eastern sounds; this package includes two of their albums, 1967's "Onion" & 1968's The Hangman's Beautiful Daughter."
"Ohh, Nick Drake, how I adore you! This British singer recorded only three studio albums of his somber, understated folk-rock before passing away in 1974, aged 26. This is his first, 1969's Five Leaves Left."
