Subject: RE: 70s Folk Rock
Ya' know... I dug a few of the British alt folk rock bands... Mostly Fairport Convention and Steeleye Span and I'll be the first to admit that I never heard of most of the Brit folk rock bands that have been mentioned here but...

...here states side we had a bunch of real good ones... Here is a partial list of ours:

New Riders and the Purple Sage
Poco
The Grateful Dead
Cowboy
The Flying Burrito Brothers
Crosby, Stills and Nash
The Byrds
Teagarten and VanWinkle
Goose Creek Symphony
Bob Dylan
Crazy Horse
The Band

Oh, and for the record, we've had some fine folk rockers ever since:

Uncle Tupelo
Wilco
to some extent, Phish
Gillian Welsh
etc...
