Let’s play.

.

You know I’m not going to stop posting these. You might as well play along….

For me there’s only one answer. The band that provided the soundtrack to my adolescent formative years…

.

.

Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young.

Great harmony… and snappy dressers too.

When Neil left the band, I happily followed his solo career but still loved the remaining CSN.

My iPod is full of their songs and my vinyl crates hold a lot of their albums. Timeless music and a sentimental walk down memory lane.

How about you? Who are your favorite harmonizers…

      1. I woke up to take a leak and was ready to get up. I sat down to read the reader and was halfway through my comment when I nodded off at my desk. Forty five luxurious minutes later, I’m back and fresh as a December daisy.

  1. Ok, this was really tough since CSNY was the first to come to me, then I thought Mama’s and the Papas California Dreamer, then Beach Boys….but in the end, and it is something you may have to look up….but Saigon Kick “Love is on the Way” tops my list of best vocal harmonization.

      1. Agreed. That’s a good piece of work. When I think of lovey rock bands I always come back to Sammy Halen. From “Have you seen Junior’s grades?” to “How will I know when it’s love?” It makes me sad.

  2. This is hard, because there are so many groups I love. But I’m going to go with The Eagles, if you’ve never heard their song Seven Bridges Road, you should. This song captures their ability to harmonize extremely well. But as an honorable mention, Simon and Garfunkel.

  3. Not ready to play your game yet, but I thought you might like to know I watched Neil Young play when he was still with The Squires in Winnipeg, mid 60s, just starting out on his musical career.

      1. The ealiest, unless you count his days playing in a pre-teen group with friends with him playing ukelele or banjo (before he got his first guitar) but that was too early even for me — but not for hid mother.

  4. I guess my question has to be, what qualifies as harmony? I am tone deaf, so everything sounds good to me. Does singing back-up together qualify as harmony, or is that just voices singing together?
    I am going to say it’s voices singing together, and I want to offer you something you and your readers have probably never heard before. So, without futher ado, I give you the original Collectors from Vancouver, BC, Canada in about 1968. This was not a hit song, but one I love anyway. In fact, I love the whole album!

      1. Vancouver’s top rock band in the 60s. They toured the American mid-west for months and then settled in Los Angeles around the same time as the Doors were getting famous.
        Later as personnel changed they became Chilliwack, whom you may have heard of.

  5. Harmonious – I was thinking at first Beach Boys and then I thought The Temptatios, but I remember when I was a kiddo, the band Boyz II Men were in the charts – and I think their track was “End Of The Road”. It was such a big hit.

  6. CSNY was my first choice, as well. Hard to compete with that kind of velvety perfection. I’ll go with the best indie rock band nobody has ever heard of and say The Moondoggies. “Lead Me On” is a particularly fine example.
