All of this no doubt greased the wheels for both major and independent labels to give the green light to full-length albums in an incredibly diverse array of folk-rock styles.
We've also, somewhat regrettably, excluded fine retrospective CD compilations by artists who never managed to release an album while they were active, though anyone who's interested in rare '60s folk-rock (or folk-rock in general, for that matter) would do well to check out Blackburn & Snow's , all of them featuring unreleased material and/or rare singles on par with the LPs discussed here.
Plus there's nothing from the intimately-related-yet-different '60s/early '70s British folk-rock scene, many of whose rarities have been discussed in a couple of recent RC features by Colin Harper (in "Top 20 Neglected Brit-Folk Gems," RC 305) and Richard Morton Jack (in "Strange Folk," RC 309).
It was also hacked apart and reassembled for a confusing 1970 Mercury reissue, Richard Fariña died young (on April 30, 1966) and dramatically (in a motorcycle accident, on his wife's twenty-first birthday), right after publishing a well-regarded novel linking the beat and hippie eras ().
His wife Mimi -- sister of Joan Baez -- also died relatively young, albeit a quarter of a century later, after achieving renown in the San Francisco Bay Area as founder of Bread and Roses, an organization dedicated to staging musical events in prisons, old-age homes, homeless shelters, children's hospitals, and AIDs hospices.
Nor have they often been acknowledged as folk-rock pioneers, though their first jumps into the music roughly coincided with Dylan's.
