    Got 'em all on CD and plenty more from that year. They're all great albums, with the exception of Neil Young's first solo album, which I found somewhat boring, although The Loner's a good song.

    Some gems in there for sure... Love a lot of these albums, but recently listening to CSNY I couldn't get through it.

    I will add King Crimson - In The Court Of The Crimson King to the list.

    It's amazing to see how many bands put out 2 classic records in one calendar year. The rate they had to work and still come up with all time classic music is insane compared to the one album every 2 years at best we see now.

    I guess sh**y record contracts were great for creativity.

    I agree but suspect it is A LOT harder to just make something original, let alone original and good 50 years of "development" (for want of a better term) later....

    Back then you couldn't help but be at least interesting if not original...Nowadays a lot of the interesting stuff has been done.

    And at the rate of people saying that sounds like, is a take off of and being sued because of, I imagine it does take longer than it did....

    Yeah man, I was 12, and totally addicted to all the great, new, exciting music.
    I’m deeply grateful to the artists, and the visionary record labels that signed them.
    I was just going into junior high school.
    Unforgettable times, and music.

    Alas, I'm a bit older than Bill. It was my 3'rd year in college. I have most of these so far (vinyl) packed away in boxes. Great stuff. Thanks for the memories!

    I'm only a couple years younger than you Matt.....it was INDEED an amazing time to come of age, socially, politically, and (most significant) musically. It's impossible (for me, at least) to adequately explain what it was like.....the boundaries that were being expanded.....the envelopes being pushed....the MINDS being "blown"!....(and I never experimented with drugs. ;) ) For lack of a better explanation, it was a convergence in the cosmos that (IMHO) will never occur again.
