SORM Playlist #15-14: Tie Dyed Folk, Part 1
(airing the week starting 4-01-15)

Pops Orchestra play Simon and Garfunkel

Around 1967 the recordings in the folk music sections of record stores began to have quite a different appearance. Influenced by the psychedelic movement on the West Coast new artists began to appear. Tim Buckley, Joni Mitchell and established artists like Simon & Garfunkel began to change the musical palate. The Youngbloods and other folk-rock bands shifted their focus from New York City to San Francisco and Los Angeles. In Pt. 1 of Tie Dyed Folk we’ll focus on some of the artists who changed the face of American folk music after the Summer of Love.

  1. “8:05” by Moby Grape is one of the best unknown tunes from that era!!! Anything from Surrealistic Pillow by the Jefferson Airplane always deserves airplay!!! Both gentle and hard tunes on that album!!
