Ya, the hippie-styled lyrics were not of the ilk of your father's country music.

Parson, and Byrds, did indeed, run into redneck resistance. Country DJ, Ralph Emery, blasted the Byrds on his radio show. they responded with the brilliant, "Drug store truck drivin' man."

...and how, Bob! Ironic when you bear in mind how McGuinn and Crosby were reportedly the character models for Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper in.............that motorbike movie. This is not to suggest of course that Ralph Emery was in anything like the same league as the rednecks in that one!

What a time, eh? Culturally, the reddies at the time got it all wrong and jumped to conclusions that just weren't right in that McGuinn, Crosby, Hillman and Parsons etc RESPECTED that whole country tradition that they were singing about. They just didn't get it that the Burritos and Byrds had their own new country style.

many prejudice country-western fans were blinded by the long hair and colorfull clothing, and ignored the music, much of it using the pedal-steel, like Buck Owens' band did. Anti-drug hysteria, and pro-war rednecks kept hippie-country off the Country stations. That is still true today!
Country-Western is not allowed on any "country-western" station! Chris Hillman and Jorma Kaukonen, and Emylou Harris' recent releases are not allowed on "country-western" radio!
hell, even Merl Haggard and Willy Nelson were smokin pot back then, and they and Johnny Cash, are forbidden on ANY "country" station because it's too country.

The embroidered marijuana leaves on Gram's outfit didn't help matters... But hey, country music stations don't play country anymore, they play pop music recorded in Nashville.

Gene Clark talks about recording "Fantastic Expedition! of Dillard & Clark" ( one of my all-time favorites REAALLY!! )....they didn't sleep for days...partying with the likes of Doug Diilard, Merl Haggard, etc.....you know what they were smoking!! & just what are they passing back and forth on the cover??

yup, that D&C album is great! back then when Merl H.'s, "Okee From Muskogie" came out, I thought it was an anti-hippie record. but, no.
Haggard was smokin' it, and it was his satire on ignorant red-necks.

What a band. So glad to see two Clark songs covered on "Raising Sand".
Those two tracks make Dillard & Clark (2) worth owning. I guess T-bone is looking at some more Gene Clark (& Carla Olson!) songs for inclusion on the follow up to "Raising Sand". Nice.

It's not the Grammys, John, but I can't get enough of the video at Crossroads.

I'm unhappy w youtube

They've removed some of my favourites: Tim Buckley on the monkees (I even used the spanish TV version)the hoban anderson animations and the girls night out one.I thought I'd preserved them for memories. Bugger.

They've also taken Willie the Pimp off one of my own vids - but that's OK.
Cocteau twins are still there.

Oh I hope noone takes the love recordings off. My view is we had permission to record.

Keep on shining

Really am glad to see so many Buckley fans here....been listening to the Dream Letter Live 2 hour DVD...I envy those that saw him then!! His musical peak for me.

Nice mention of great music, rocker....btw, RW gave me an really nice interview he did with Chris in 92 & 99! What a great guy Chris is, and thanks to Rick for saving those interviews for us!
