    Default Bands with best voices in harmony

    I have been getting into a lot of classic rock bands of late, ones that I might not have been that interested in 40 years ago, but have now recognized the amazing beauty (or uniqueness) of voices in harmony. I'll give you a list of those bands I think were at the top of this list, and wonder if any of you have others you'd add:

    Queen
    Fleetwood Mac
    Crosby, Stills and Nash
    Chicago (some might disagree with this one)
    The Beach Boys
    Now, just a tiny bit less than an absolute drum newbie
    DW Collectors Cherry kit, Ludwig Black Beauty Snare, DW SuperSolid Oak/Cherry Snare, DW Sabian Vault Edge Snare

    I go back to my youth and think of The Crystals, Jay and the Americans. The Beach Boys are a given.

    Someone asked me when I retired what it would take to get me back playing. I told them that if they could find me a singer like Steve Perry or Ann Wilson, we would talk.

    The BEATLES were amazing.

    Give this a listen. Just vocal tracks.

    Beatles, Doobie Brothers, and Eagles are arguably the top 3 IMO.

    Mamas & Papas (California Dreaming)
    Eagles (so may early songs - later, Seven Bridges Road is a good example)
    Beach Boys (just about everything they sang)
    CSNY (before the drugs . . . at least before the heavy drug use)
    Bee Gees (everybody liked them but I'm one of the only guys confident enough in my manliness to admit it)

    Chicks would dig it if you listened to them - it worked. I let Barry Gibb put air in the tires and then I rode the bike.

    I liked a lot of what the Bee Gee's did. I just didn't realize you had to be a man's man to admit it.

    I liked Heart, so I guess it makes me a feminist.

    Thanks, guys. A bunch of bands/groups I had forgotten about or hadn't thought of... Of those, the one that I'd have to add to my list would be the Mama's and the Papa's, John Phillips' personal issues/habits notwithstanding... Incredible vocals.
