Best Folk Rock Bands of the 1960sBlue_Devereaux Criteria used to choose bands (in no particular order):
The Top Ten
First fully integrated band with two men and two women. Original sound. Original look--nothing or no one looked like they did, one reason Ed Sullivan liked them so much. Vocal harmonies are the best; no other band will ever sound like them. - Blue_Devereaux
The Mamas and the Papas suck! They should be zero
They invented folk rock
Roger McGuinn and his 12 string INVENTED folk rock!
The thing I love about Simon and Garfunkel is their minimalist approach. Often only a guitar and their voices (which are always in perfect harmony). Art Garfunkel's vocal arangements define Paul Simon's songs. They were never the same without each other. - PetSounds
So many wonderful hits... Bridge over troubled water, the Boxer, Mrs. Robinson... and so many more. - Beatlesboy9
They invented British folk rock.
