I think it at least has something to do with the way that Harry Smith's Anthology of American Folk music hit the late 50s / early 60s music scene: it articulated a bunch of progressive musical and political currents and created an expressive vehicle and set of venues. I suppose it makes sense that psychadelia, as a progressive music current, would align itself with folk, also perceived as a progressive music current. This is is poorly stated, but I think you see where I'm going.

That's a good point. Dylan factors in too, of course. It's a weird question I'm asking in that it has obvious answers that still don't satisfy me exactly. Maybe I'm not sure what I really want to ask. I've always been confused by the fusion of blues and acid, to give one example. Janis always seems to explode out from the scene instead of fitting in. Hendrix too, for that matter.
