I agree, Steve, and The Band was a great example of the fact that Harmony doesn't have to be pretty to be effective. Their voices were very far apart in almost every way, but they blended their harmony in a way that was quite striking. In the same way, the Grateful Dead achieved some innovative harmonies on American Beauty that far surpassed their individual vocal talents, or lack thereof.
