Re: 1967 - A great year for music.

I still think the Beatles are the best and all, but I've become less impressed over the years by Pepper when I think of some of the other stuff that was released at about the same time, particularly Hendrix's debut, Disraeli Gears, The Doors first, Airplane, Buffalo Springfield, Traffic, etc. Not that Pepper isn't great and innovative and important, it just doesn't have same exalted place in my view of rock history as it once did and I don't hold it in the same esteem as Revolver and Abbey Road.

A good year? It was a phenomenal year. Rock music got turned on it's ear - lead by Sgt. Pepper.

Lots of new sounds. Lots of experimenting. Lots of great music. One of if not the best years for rock music.

Had the Beach Boys Smile come out in 1967, as it was supposed to, it would have been even better.

Oh, what could have been... but '67 was a phenomenon in music.

There's a good book about R&R that I read a few yrs back.
'Glimpses' by Lewis Shiner' tells the story of a guy who is
having some issues and 'recreates' or travels back to famous
recording sessions that never quite happened; the recording
of Smile is one of his trips; Hendrix is another one. It
was quite entertaining.

Re: 1967 - A great year for music.

I fully agree about SMiLE. But even without it, I still consider 1967 to be the greatest year pop music ever had. And what's really amazing is when you bring in what was happening in Brazil, South Africa, Australia, and parts of Asia along with all the fine British and American music. (Of course, I didn't discover that music until much later, and actually I'm still discovering it.) It was "bloody fabulous" (to quote Sir George Martin). Just listening to pop radio that year was totally a "trip" (sorry to lapse into flower-child talk, but it's my native language, really).

I was ten years old that year, very socially aware, and very into music. To be a child just a little "ahead of the curve" in '67 was a really wonderful way to experience that year. It was the year I first experienced intense affection for someone of the opposite gender, and the year that I experienced what I would now call my first "spiritual awakening". It was even the year that I discovered what would become my life's work. So when we start talking about 1967, I get really excited. It was truly the year that set the course of the rest of my life. And the "soundtrack" was perfect. It was all about all that stuff.

Re: 1967 - A great year for music.

Nice list Crimson! I would add Love - Forever Changes, The Rolling Stones - Their Satanic Majesties' Request and Frank Zappa - Absolutely Free.

Probably the greatest year for pop music indeed.

Sounds cool! I wish I had lived at that time!

Great List..... I would love to see a list of the top 50 or 100 albums released per year from like 1963 to current and watch the steady decline of good music

I own that book!!! You are the only other person that I've ever come across that has read it! Very entertaining read. You can tell that Shiner is a big music fan in reading it and I think he does a great job of fantisizing what the situations would have truly been like. Very cool.

Re: 1967 - A great year for music.

^I thought that was released in 1968..




But maybe it depends on the country. I'm not American, so 1967 might have been the correct date there, but not where I'm from (I think ).

"The 1967 release of the band's debut album Creedence Clearwater Revival paralleled the flowering of the San Francisco music scene, but the Creedence phenomenon had little in common with the "San Francisco Sound." That first LP contained rock standards such as Dale Hawkins's "Susie Q" and Screamin' Jay Hawkins's "I Put a Spell on You," as well as original material by John Fogerty, who was to emerge as one of rock's most influential songwriters. "Susie Q" was an immediate hit, soon followed by "I Put a Spell on You."

Re: 1967 - A great year for music.

"With the release of this extraordinary debut album in July 1968, Creedence Clearwater Revival was launched upon a career that little more than a year later would lead to enormous worldwide popularity. The four-man group from San Francisco's East Bay had worked ten years as a bar band and recorded several singles on the Scorpio label (under the forgettable name the Golliwogs), but it was with this Fantasy release that CCR caught fire. Lead singer/guitarist/writer John Fogerty emerges as a fine lyric shouter with "Ninety-Nine and a Half," "I Put a Spell on You," and "Suzie Q," a brilliant extended rendition of the Dale Hawkins classic that quickly became a Top Ten hit."
