    1966 In Review

    Not too shabby!

    From this moment on, the rock album became a statement in itself, a measure of significance. Artists began looking at their albums as unified works.

    Just a year later came Alpert and Dusty Springfield in the great James Bond spoof Casino Royale (lusted over by audiophiles after HP made it a TAS Superdisc).

    Rust: I agree. My father bought many Herb/TJB albums on reel to reel back then and, it made me grow up being a second-generation fan of his sound.

    I STILL have Herb Alpert and the Tijuana albums I bought way back when. Excellent tune composition, excellent playing. Herb was quite successful with his endeavors with A&M records too.

    Herb Alpert had FIVE albums in the Top 10...so, that feat (coupled with: soundtracks from movies such as The Sound of Music and Doctor Zhivago) would've overshadowed what we'd -now- think of the legendary Classic Rock releases out then.

    I was 9 in 1966. I have (or had) many of those LPs. I also was able to create a playlist in Tidal with 38 of them, several of them Master files. We just don't get significant albums like that these days, at least not in any great numbers.

    I was 13 years old and starting to lust after girls. My favorite sex goddess was Sophia Loren.

    Anyway, I remember 1966 well. I had a copy of Revolver, loved the Beatles and the Lovin Spoonful. Great music everywhere. What happened to music?

    A few days ago I tried very hard to listen to new music. I lasted about 15 minutes. Its too angry.

    I was a junior in college and many of these bring back the memories, even though I was getting into classical music big time.

    I saw Judy Collins playing in a very small club in Joliet IL in the summer of 1963 (maybe it was 1962). There was a two drink minimum (milkshakes or sodas, no alcohol) and there must have been 15 people in the club and it was almost full. She was just doing folk songs, before she started singing Joni Mitchell and other contemporary composers' songs. By 1966, she was playing in giant auditoriums. Phil Ochs was to me the great protest singer-song writer of the time. I bought all of his albums as they came out - on Elektra, the same label as Judy Collins, whose albums I also bought (along with Joan Baez). Dylan's voice was a big barrier to me, so I heard most of his songs sung by other people.

    The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Beach Boys were all very popular, but I wasn't entranced by their music enough to buy any of their albums.

    Now that I have gotten seriously into tape, I have been getting more rock/pop albums in trades and I am starting to hear what I had missed from those days - Beatles Revolver, Rubber Soul, Buffalo Springfield self titled, Beach Boys Pet Sounds, Procol Harum self titled (from 1967), and Blood, Sweat and Tears Child is Father to the Man (from 1968 when Al Kooper was the leader after Blues Project mentioned in the article).
