    Can't help you on this. I just remember the show fondly. And the red vinyl was coolio.

    The only other national act I can recall from 1969 in Corpus Christi was Steppenwolf. My band was the second opening act for them. It was a rush.

    A lot of great mentions. This is the album that kicked off Duane Allman’s Session career. I think he played on 4 tracks:

    Tough for me. At San Quentin if we're counting live albums. What an absolute tour de force of what a live show should be. Pure electricity.

    If not.... Oof. Toss up between Allman Bros Debut, Let it Bleed, or the Zep albums depending on the day.

    From Elvis in Memphis. A total masterpiece through and through.

    1969 was strangely not that huge of a music year, for me. Or, should I say I was still digging a lot of '68 and earlier stuff. A lot of my favorite bands were disbanding and 1969 was a "best of" year. Others have already been mentioned.

    But this record was very big and everyone owned it, as I recall:

    People here have mentioned Nick Drake's Five Leaves Left and the Burritos Gilded Palace of Sin but we must've found 100% of all the buyers of this record here at TDPRI. Nobody I knew bought these, and I couldn't buy everything. I heard them a little on the Album Rock radio station but no more than 20 minutes airplay to either of them. Trout Mask Replica we knew a little better. I'm pretty sure I got to hear it all the way through but by then it could've been 1970 or 1971.

    As you likely know, it was Duane playing on Hey Jude that caught Clapton's attention.:)

    I’m aware. I’m sure down at Muscle Shoals they didn’t need some famous Brit to tell them they had something special in front of them.:D

    There's a nugget I never heard about, gee I wonder what gear he used?

    I resisted putting Joe Cocker down as a best album of '69 but he deserves a mention of nobody else has yet.

    Yeah, I suppose the eponymous Poco album, two Neil Young albums and the CSN album was clearly not a bad year, but I sort of look past these with a sense of expectation of every year surpassing the previous one.

    There were some new bands breaking though. I just know that a lot of bands that were solid in the 1960s were in trouble by 1969. Or so I felt. I saw the Byrds, the Rascals, the Kinks, the Bee Gees, the Hollies, the Beach Boys, the Animals, Paul Revere and the Raiders and many others as in decline or kaput. Even the Rolling Stones as I saw it.

    ‘67 for me. Wish I’d been alive then.
