June's Underappreciated Music: the links

The monthly assembly of undervalued and often nearly "lost" music, or simply music the blogger in question wants to remind you reader/listeners of...this month, a lot of bands and performers who haven't been Too terribly overlooked!--but also, even the most influential and legendary artists have produced some work that is easy to miss...even as we will miss a few of those cited below.

And, thinking of Ronnie Gilbert, Patrick Sky, most of the Byrds and others considered below, some folk-music magazine covers, including two from the two different magazines called Hootenanny, one keyed to the ABC television series (edited by Linda Solomon, a friend of then-fellow pro music critics Ted White and Harlan Ellison) and one not (edited by Lynn Musgrave and Robert Shelton, who helped Bob Dylan among others along, but Dylan particularly)...

"Joan Baez vs. Al Capp"? What was that about?

Richard--you might recall that in the mid/latter '60s, something flipped the mildly center-left Al Capp, and his comic strip "Li'l Abner", to a fairly reactionary stance, and one of the new characters was a strident folk musician, Joanie Phoanie (if I have the spelling correct). Baez was not altogether charmed.

I'll reprint these comments under the relevant pos below, the June Music...
