50 years ago was 1967

this week, a special 2-hour "deep tracks" with music from 1967 in the order it was released. what an explosive year musically. it was seismic. it was 50 years ago...

1967beginning with revolutionary music from the doors, jimi, sgt pepper, as well as semi-forgotten gems like miriam makebe's "pata pata" and van morrison's innocent "spanish rose."

this could be boring if not flat trip down some pre-programmed memory lane, but i hate nostalgia and won't ever do that on my show.

but this week's 2 hour show only takes us through august 1967. stay tuned next week for some killer albums that were released in time for christmas 67.

the 3rd all-time best year of music!

in my countdown of the best years of music of all time, here's how the top ten looks so far:

10. 1968 moody blues

9. 1992

8. 2010

7. 1983

6. 1965

5. 1972

4. 1971

which means this week i'll present the musical reasons for what must be considered the 3rd best year of all time. admittedly, it got a lot of votes for #1, but all things considered, if you listen for the next 3 weeks, i think you'll agree with my final top 3 years of music.

without spoiling the fun by mentioning the year, let me just say this the 3rd best year featured 2 albums released by jimi hendrix, 2 by the beatles, the moody blues' [above] best album, the beach boys' best, the birth of cream, the doors, and psychedelia, the height of soul music, and the year of albums instead of singles--but there were plenty of great singles too.
