    I'm pretty sure that a year or two before they came out with their LPs, both bands played at my high school while my older brother was attending. He didn't go "because it cost three bucks" which was a lot. o_O

    I would have said "Hot Rats" but I didn't hear that until 1975 or so and it was a whole different world then.

    Forgot Tommy, a big deal to me at the time as a ten year old.
    Otherwise I wasn't a huge fan of the Who but that album stuck.

    Stand is maybe my fave Sly Stone album. Uneven, but Everyday People was on it so I’ll suggest it.

    Cheers,

    Already said but as far as something unique that still dazzles me it would have to be Tommy.

    Not mentioned: Burritos Gilded Palace of Sin.

    Jan. 12. I was wrong. I stand corrected.

    At one point zep 1 and 2 would have been right up there in my top 10. They’ve dropped some but they’re still pretty amazing.

    Cheers,
    Geoff

    The Stooges first record is my favorite of 69, but it was already mentioned.

    So I’ll say Let It Bleed by The Stones.
    Even though it was released in December of 69, it still counts.

    I will also say that for me 1969 is probably the year that the most music that profoundly impacted me was made. I turned 5.

    Cheers,

    Taste. Rory Gallagher before he went solo.

    Just the array of diversity in styles, thus far, highlights just how incredible ‘69 was!

    Oh my how could I forget, The Band.
    Probably my favorite album at the time along with Stage Fright in '70.

    I was ten years old in 1969. One thing I found was it was crucial to endear yourself to older kids with the means to buy records. I had a record player, Yesterday and Today (The steamer trunk cover) that I bought with my birthday money, and some hand-me-down Evlis records that came along with the record player from my cousin who had graduated to an actual console stereo.

    The local AM stations played top 40, which actually didn’t suck at all, but you would have been hard pressed to hear anything from Abbey Road. It was I think too weird for the taste of mainstream America. There was no iTunes or YouTube or none of that stuff. You really had to seek out these older sages and hang aroUnd the record stores to branch out of the bubble gum stuff.

    Anyway, what was my point? Oh yea, I didn’t really discover what was all out there in 1969 until a couple years later when I got a paper route and could buy my own records. Kids these days have a lot of advantages we could only dream of.
