    Miles Davis Bitches Brew was out but
    Miles Davis In a Silent Way was way better.

    I just YouTubed In a Silent Way, listening to that and thinking about what was going on musically in that first cut I hear a Grateful Dead Jam. The Grateful Dead put a lot of jazz in their extended jams.

    I was into 45's cuz they were far more affordable.


    My sister had Abbey Road but I wasn't into the Beatles. Plus I think the White Album was already out in 1969.
    My cousin was into Blind Faith, I was still listening to Cream in denile.

    I've had a look on Wikipedia. I am very tempted to say Surround Yourself With Cilla by Cilla Black or Ticket to Ride by The Carpenters just to be a contrary old git. However, apart from the Led Zep ones I think the only album I've owned from 1969 is Grand Funk so I'm saying that.

    I started playing guitar in 1967 and was still pretty much a beginner playing acoustic.

    Hmmm.... For sheer joy from the music I'll go with Abby Road and Threshold of a Dream.

    Fuel for my future guitar aspirations came from Terry Kath on the first Chicago record and Alvin Lee on Woodstock. Both of those guys just blew me away at the time. Come to think of it, they still do.

    Every time we speak of 1969 and music I'm overwhelmed. It's almost impossible to even begin this exercise with a list under 20. Just the sheer volume of music released in 69 that's stood the test of time is hard to believe. For me these are the more popular big ones that stand out but ask me again tomorrow and I'll probably have others.

    Let It Bleed
    The Band (brown record)
    Blind Faith
    Abbey Road
    Tommy
    Led Zep I

    69 gets all the buzz but the same argument can be made for 68 too.

    There's plenty of great other years too for people born later that we never seem to mention...sorry guys, boomer bias again. :(

    Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band's "Trout Mask Replica."

    Followed closely by the first Stooges album...

    The third (s/t) Velvet Underground album...

    ...and one that just slipped my freakin' mind.

    On Edit: I was thinking of 'Weasels Ripped My Flesh" by Zappa & The Mothers, but I checked and it was released in 1970.

    Trust me, ZEP's popularity wan't all that in 69. They were a contender, but far from the top. Most albums mentioned in this thread already top any ZEP album in quality and content. Most other albums here didn't plagiarize like LED ZEP OF BECK did. Most of ZEPS fans, like me, were in the guitar player category, attracted by the Yardbirds connection.

    Fleetwood Mac "Then Play On" should be given some consideration.

    I turned 18 in '69. In a band for 3 years at the time, thought I was "king". Zep 1 and 2 comes along,
    and it's back to the drawling board for me. I must have been trippin' to think music wouldn't change
    that much, but '69 now that was the best.

    Same with me. the Yardbirds connection was why I gave Led Zep a listen to, and I 'm thinking, well it's
    only "blues".......blues on "eleven"....

    No disrespect to the genius of Jeff Beck or his group, but Led Zeppelin took that blueprint above & beyond. Their rhythm section, alone, was far superior, in my estimation...then there’s those songs & riffs
