    Harmonies: What Groups or Duos Were Your Favorite For Being Great Harmonizers?

    I've always loves great harmonies. Do you have a personal favorite act that could harmonize with the best of them? I'll start and you can add some of yours.


    Three guys.

    Three Martin Guitars.

    Damn Near Perfection...




    Same group. Same Song. In Concert. Same Perfection.

    Poco created the country-rock sound that the Eagles and others made famous. In fact, were it not for Poco, there might have never been the eagles. Damn you, Poco. Just some sublime harmonies right here:

    In case you haven't heard it.

    Emmylou Harris = Greatest harmony singer ever.

    Not gonna post about the Beach Boys because you already know. Good Vibrations may not be the best song ever, but it's up there in the conversation.

I'll take my scorecard and pencil and beer and hot dog and rage at the dips and cheer at the highs, but I'm not ever going to stop loving this game and this team and nobody will ever take that away from me."

    You can put the blame directly on Linda Ronstadt for the Eagles. That is, if you aren't a fan of that particular band.

    From an online article:
    Destiny would soon strike in the form of Souther’s girlfriend, Linda Ronstadt, who was establishing a solo career after breaking out with the Stone Poneys in 1967 with “Different Drum.” Needing a band for a tour in 1971, Ronstadt hired Frey as a guitar player and the Texas-born drummer from another former Amos act called Shiloh, Don Henley. The musical chemistry between Henley and Frey was instant, and while on the road, they decided to form a band, with Ronstadt giving them her blessing.

    The tour ended, but Ronstadt had a gig at Disneyland coming up in July. For that date, Henley and Frey were rounded out by two men who had considerable experience with country-rock: Bernie Leadon, who had been in the Flying Burrito Brothers, and bassist Randy Meisner from Poco. The Eagles were born.

    If you want to take that a step further, blame Michael Nesmith of the Monkees for the Eagles existence. Ronstadt was in a group called the Stone Poneys. Their only song that was even close to being a hit was "Different Drum". That was written by Nesmith before he glammed on to the Monkees. Linda used the success of that song to launch a solo career, which precipitated the need for a backup band. That backup band was, essentially, the start of the Eagles. Will the circle be unbroken.

    These guys could hit the high 3 part harmony's like none other. This video is particularly impressive because there is no sound man mixing them on a multi-track board.

    I've been a fan of the Eagles since the mid-70's( that is, until morphed into mimes). $500 for a mime show--- I'll pass. Back in the day The Eagles could do some pretty fine harmonizing, as well.

    Saw these guys about 15 years ago in my town at an outdoor venue. Was blown away by how good they sounded live. Great, great harmonies.
