    I think Neil Young’s first solo album was released in 1968. This one was released in May of 1969....

    A truly golden year but one with a darkness to it. That said, I spent that summer in Nazareth, PA, and had the most memorable summer ever. That year was the soundtrack to my life. Just amazing the depth and breath of music one could hear on top 40 radio. OBTW, Nazareth's most famous resident won his only Indy 500. I remember his white and orange Camaro pace car in the parade.

    Yes, it was a memorable summer.

    PS - only this year did I find out that I'm distantly related to Mario. That explains why my Mom drove like she did...

    Here's a list of records released so far in 2019 that I think'll be discussed like this in 2069:

    I guess the 'younger' people hate hearing 'You had to be there to understand' - but it really is true. Mind boggling to have that quantity of quality music. We expected it - music was never better.

    That was the year I graduated high school, I guess I’ve owned most of those, maybe even a couple different formats over the years...now that we’re in the digital age, I’ve been giving them a new spin...that’s one thing about Apple Music...I’ve bought most of them before so instead of having to re-buy them, I can just download and listen as much as I want for $10/mo...

    All of this is very inspiring and brings back great memories but do you really have to point out that it's been 50 years??? I'm not that old:):confused::eek:

    And the other thing is (and the point of the thread, largely) we still enjoy hearing and playing this music.

    Some perspective: In the summer of 69, I was 14 and listening to all this stuff. I was at my grandparents, and they had both a Victrola and a collection of old 78s. I played some 50 year old music just for the h of it. The only one I really remember is Over There, the Cohen WWI anthem.

    It seemed so distant, so ooolllddd. It was equidistant in time as this 1969 stuff is today.

    I've always thought of myself as open minded and looking for good new music but maybe it's true that what we hear as youngsters is cemented in our brains as ''best''? How else can I explain the difference in how I perceive(d) the 1969 music versus the 1917 music? Were Cohen et al inferior to the 1969 artists?

    I'm gonna stop overthinking this and play guitar for a while before I go to sleep:)

    I was 18 in 1966, 21 in 1969, playing in a band, and it was a fabulously creative period in pop music.
    There was plenty of crap out there, but so many great records!

    Every one of those was an AWESOME album. Much of what's being put out today doesn't even come close to how fantastic THAT music is.
