HAIGHT ASHBURY, SAN FRANCISCO, early 1966
Although the West Coast sound is easily associated with weirdo wah wah and heavy electric stuff predating the harder rock of the end of the sixties, nearly all musicians who were responsible for the Frisco sound were folkies. And that’s exactly what they played in the beginning: folk, white American traditionals and folkblues; sometimes a more modern Chicago tune would seep in, but even then it would normally be played in soft tones, often using instruments that do not have a place in the heavier sounds that followed, like the violin or the mandolin. For example: Jerry Garcia was a skilled… banjo player who mainly performed bluegrass and folk before forming The Grateful Dead.
LISTEN TO The Great Society feat. Grace Slick, The Charlatans, Wild Flower, Country Joe & The Fish, Sons of Champlin and Grateful Dead’s entire first album from 1967.
RICHARD PERRY: HAIGHT ASHBURY, A HISTORY
“2005 marks the 40th anniversary of San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury district. The psychedelic community was probably the most widely written-about phenomenon of the 1960s apart from the Vietnam War. As unexpected as it was inevitable, the whole event from public manifestation to gaudy collapse appened in less than two years. In this acclaimed, definitive work, Charles Perry examines the history, the drama, and the energy of counter-cultures defining moment. First published by Rolling Stone Press in 1984 and now re-released with a new introduction by the Grateful Dead’s Bob Weir to time with Haight-Ashbury’s 40th anniversary, this highly acclaimed work is a must-have for anyone interested in the original sex, drugs, and rock n roll lifestyle” (Source: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/373497.The_Haight_Ashbury
