  • 1963 - A transition year! / 1964 - No turning back!

    Up to and including 1962 the charts were dominated by Jazz releases and sprinklings of Blues, R&B/Soul, RnR, Folk, etc. Joan Baez charted in 1960 and both Bob Dylan and The Beach Boys did so in 1962. Some other artists that charted back then were Marvin Gaye, The Everly Brothers, Supremes, Ike & Tina Turner and several others. But it wasn't until 1963 whereby the music of our youth really took hold. The transition was now in force and looked to be unstoppable.

    The Top 10 albums in 1963 included Bob Dylan, The Beatles (2), James Brown and Sam Cook. The TOP 10 in 1964 included 2 Dylan and 3 Beatles albums. The transition was now irreversible.

    The next decade would introduce us to music and new spinoff genres of rock (prog, metal, glam, etc) and the true birth of the singer/songwriter. R&B/Soul became huge and the Blues found a young new audience led by a lot of scruffy-looking and powerhouse British bands. Folk music never enjoyed more popularity and I could go on.
    Baby-boomers now had their own music heroes, sometimes much to the chagrin of their parents.

    Maybe on the album side but IIRC, the market and market direction was really still being dominated by singles? No song could be longer than 3 minutes. I remember a ton other groups that dominated the period who really didn't have albums.

      That's correct! The single still had a few more years of market dominance in it, but it's days were already numbered.

        What I was trying to say rock was already starting to dominate the market, but you might not know it by the album sales. I remember so many groups that really only had singles out on the market!

            God, this one was in constant rotation on the cafeteria jukebox all the time.



            as was this:



            Definitely not chick magnets there!

            This was a huge step up!



            Followed by this on the juke box:



            Well there was a little Zager and Evans thrown in there somewhere!
