The Charlatans

No relation to the British alternative rock band of the same name, the San Francisco-based Charlatans have been widely credited as starting the Haight-Ashbury psychedelic scene. In retrospect, their contribution was more of a social one, planting seeds of a rock counterculture with their unconventional, at times outrageous dress and attitudes. While they occasionally delved into guitar distortion and fractured, stoned songwriting, the Charlatans' music was rooted in good-time jug band blues, not psychedelic freak-outs. That's not to say their records didn't have a low-key, easygoing charm, although they didn't match the innovations of the Jefferson Airplane and other peers. Cutting demos for a couple labels in 1966, most of the material they recorded at this time was unissued, and the commercial explosion of San Francisco rock passed them by. The band eventually did release a nationally distributed album in the late '60s, by which time personnel changes had diluted some of the crazy energy of the original lineup, although the LP has its engaging moments. ~ Richie Unterberger

The song Alabama Bound reminds me very much of the Jefferson Airplane (before they sold out!!).
I loved Dan Hicks and the Hotlicks!
Good comments, LEXOLICIOUS and BOBOnnit!

One more comment...I wouldn't list The Charlatans UK, The Jam, R.E.M. or Elliott Smith as Similar Artists to The Charlatans. I would list The Grateful Dead, Big Brother and Holding Company, perhaps Jefferson Airplane.

Looks like you fixed it! I'm lovin' it!

Interesting bio, great samples, but when I try to create a station for The Charlatans, instead it gives me Charlatans UK! Is there any way to fix that so I get a station for the San Francisco Charlatans from the 60's?
