  • 1967 - Both The Beatles and Jimi Hendrix appear twice on the first page

    What a year!!!!! Many musicphiles consider 1967 to be the best year ever for new album/artist releases and depending on your own interests, this could very well be so. I'm not sure personally as 1971 and 1973 are strong contenders for that honour as well, but I digress.

    Top 10 of 1967
    1. The Beatles - Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
    2. The Velvet Underground - The Velvet Underground and Nico

    4. The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Are You Experienced?
    5. Love - Forever Changes
    6. The Beatles - Magical Mystery Tour
    7. Pink Floyd - The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn
    8. Leonard Cohen - Songs of Leonard Cohen

    I remember when Disraeli Gears came out and my HS music teacher played it for our class! Another great example of how blues influenced rock and Clapton coming from playing with John Mayall.

    Sunshine of Your Love is amazing and great story behind it! Plus lots of soon to be renowned music industry people worked on Cream's albums!

        Same here! I just checked my digital files and didn;t think I had Love-Forever changes, but I do. Will change that in my first post.

      1967—the golden anniversary of which we will be celebrating all year long—was one amazing year for rock music. Here are some of the highlights.

        Five guilty pleasures from that list:

        The Association Windy
        The Easybeats Friday on My Mind
        The Buckinghams Kind of a Drag
        Lulu To Sir With Love
        Scott McKenzie San Francisco

        Were there two greater rock songs? Love ❤️ ya Grace!

        Thanks Johnny and Myles for stirring up some memories. I graduated from college in 1967 and headed out west for grad school at Berkeley. It was the summer of love in SF, and the Haight was the center of the psychedelic universe. Timothy Leary had been experimenting with LSD (I spent one traumatic night with my roommate who had taken some and was on a very bad trip) while I was in college, but the big drug scene was just a year or two late for me. As a classical music lover even in those days, my great musical experience of 1967 was seeing Luciano Pavarotti and Mirella Freni in La Boheme at the SF Opera in Pavarotti's official US debut. I had never heard of him, but thought he was very good!

        A year later it was over - Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy were assassinated, and Berkeley was closed when martial law was declared with protests of the expanding Vietnam war. We had truly lost our innocence.
