Subject: RE: Review: 'Troubadors' documentary - '70s LA folk
Perhaps one could call this the Folk-Rock era at the Troubador rather than the earlier Folk era.

Note that with the exception of David Crosby and Jackson Browne, few of these people are native to the area, and even Browne was born in Germany to US parents.

David Crosby was born into a ShowBiz family in Hollywood and is, to say the least, a spoiled brat. No wonder the Greenwich Village crown resented these privledged folks taking all the air out of the room.

All these folks had early success, made lots of money, did lots of drugs, and never came within a county mile of the Roots music that inspired the NY crowd.
