  • It has been posited that pioneering folk-rock songwriter Richard Farina was an influence on Bob Dylan; they moved in the same circles, and Richard's wife/musical partner Mimi was the younger sister of Dylan's then-paramour Joan Baez. However much credence you place on that theory, it's undeniable that Farina was a songwriter of the first order, and his best songs are certainly on a par with those of early Dylan.
  • On their debut album, Richard & Mimi Farina's keening harmonies emulate the folk/bluegrass Appalachian tradition, as do their stripped-down dulcimer and acoustic-guitar format, but Richard's lyrics marry sociopolitical concerns with a sophisticated use of poetic imagery way ahead of its time in the pop world. (Farina excelled in literature, too--his post-Beat/pre-Hippie novel BEEN DOWN SO LONG IT LOOKS LIKE UP TO ME made big waves in the publishing world, though he was killed in an accident right around the time of its release.)
