Your favourite albums from 1963 to 1973
« on: March 30, 2011, 08:10:57 PM »

Since I consider that 1963-1973 were the best years in rock music, I'd like to know which are each one's favourite albums from each year of that period.

These are my choices:

1963: Please Please Me (The Beatles)
1964: A Hard Day's Night (The Beatles)
1965: Rubber Soul (The Beatles)
1966: Revolver (The Beatles)
1967: Forever Changes (Love)
1968: Odessey And Oracle (The Zombies)
1969: Abbey Road (The Beatles)
1970: Lola (The Kinks)
1971: Who's Next (The Who)
1972: Exile On Main Street (The Rolling Stones)
1973: Quadrophenia (The Who)

Erm.....I don't own any albums from 1973. Not one. Or 1974. Or 1975. Or 1976..........
The last entry in 'the collection' is Pink Floyd's soundtrack to 'La Vallee' and was apparently released on June 2nd 1972!
If it ain't the 60s (or before) I'm just not interested.

However, the first three entries here have enough of a 60s hangover/fairy dust to warrant inclusion!

1972:     Nick Drake - 'Pink Moon'
1971:     Bert Jansch - 'Rosemary Lane'
1970:     Paul McCartney - 'McCartney' (Paul's best LP by a country mile)
1969:     Free - 'Free'
1968:     Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band - 'Safe As Milk' (released, I think, in 1968, not 1967, in the UK)
1967:     Beach Boys - 'Smile' (the one finally put out in 2011, not 'Smiley Smile')
1966:     Love - 'Da Capo'
1965:     Rolling Stones - 'Out Of Our Heads'
1964:     Rolling Stones - 'The Rolling Stones' (debut LP)
1963:     Beatles - 'Please Please Me'

1964:     Rolling Stones - 'The Rolling Stones' (debut LP)
1963:     Beatles - 'Please Please Me'

I think '73 might just be the best year:

The Who - Quadrophenia
Pink Floyd - The Dark Side of the Moon
Genesis - Selling England By The Pound
Elton John - Goodbye Yellow Brick Road
Paul McCartney - Band on the Run
Led Zeppelin - Houses of the Holy
The Stooges - Raw Power
King Crimson - Larks' Tongues In Aspic
Lou Reed - Berlin
David Bowie - Aladdin Sane
Aerosmith - s/t
Beach Boys - Holland

And some other acclaimed ones that I've yet personally to hear:

Stevie Wonder - Innervisions
Can - Future Days
Black Sabbath - Sabbath Bloody Sabbath
Roxy Music - For Your Pleasure
Lynyrd Skynyrd - debut
Tom Waits - Closing Time
Marvin Gaye - Let's Get It On
John Cale - Paris 1919
Al Green - Call Me
Mike Oldfield - Tubular Bells
Yes - Yessongs
Todd Rundgren - A Wizard, A True Star
New York Dolls - s/t
Neil Young - Time Fades Away

Holly hell, I'm in awe just typing the titles. What an embarrassment of riches.

P.S. Nice choices, oldbrownshoe. My reply is not strictly directed to you - I just wanted to point out how many albums I love from that year.

The only one of those LPs I'd go anywhere near is 'Innervisions', but I'd still prefer a Stevie Wonder 60s As and Bs compilation.
Hell would have to freeze over before Led Zeppelin, Roxy Music, Yes, Black Sabbath, Genesis or Elton John got anywhere near my CD deck (too hairy, too ugly, too prog), though I wouldn't say no to the Bluesology 45s.

As a footnote, Bowie's version of 'Let's Spend The Night Together' is the worst cover version (apart from 'American Pie' by Madonna......obviously!) I have ever heard.

But, Ovi, popular music/youth culture peaked in the 60s (fact) and thank the Lord that The Beatles weren't still around in 1975 or 1985 to make their version of 'Black and Blue' or 'Dirty Work'.
A 12 inch disco remix of a new 1978 Beatles' single anyone?

All the stuff you mention is just the padding, the stuff after the Lord Mayor's Show, made by people who'd either done better things in the 60s (Lou Reed, The Who, The Beach Boys, Paul) or by people who didn't do things as good as that from the 60s (Roxy Music, New York Dolls, Black Sabbath)!

Padding with increasing poor graphic design, quality of the actual vinyl (check out 60s vinyl compared to stuff released by, say, Wings), clothing, drugs, well.....just about everything.

It also represents, categorically, a far less interesting and exciting time to live in than the 60s.
Of course, other opinions are available!

Anyway, back to the story, you'll be pleased to know that I 'DO' own a record from 1973.....sort of.
In the 1990s Trunk Records put out a soundtrack LP for the 1973 film 'The Wicker Man'.
So.....
1973:     'The Wicker Man' soundtrack.

I can understand you preferring the 60's and thinking of them as the musical/cultural peak (I do, too), but to dismiss so casually and harshly some of the most popular and critically-respected (fact) artists just because a) they're not 60's artists and b) they may have done better things in the 60's? I just can't get behind that.

I would seriously like to know what you think about 'Quadrophenia' for example, since you've mentioned the Who and it was on my original list.

I tend to agree with you, although I do think that there's some good music after the 60's and even beyond, but in my vision of Heaven, only 60's artists play there.

I'm also glad that the Beatles ended when they did and didn't follow the way of such artists like the Rolling Stones or the Beach Boys. The Fab Four, more than anyone, belonged to the 60's. However, I think there are some worthy 70's albums made by 60's artists: Who's Next, Quadrophenia, The Who By Numbers and Who Are You by the Who; Sticky Fingers and Exile On Main Street by the Rolling Stones; Morrison Hotel and L.A. Woman by the Doors; Lola by the Kinks; Workingman's Dead and American Beauty by Grateful Dead; Twelve Dreams Of Dr. Sardonicus by Spirit.

I think those albums and some more are good enough to deserve a place next to the great 60's music, because the magical touch of those artists is still there.

All the stuff you mention is just the padding,




So what you guys are saying is that;

Deep Purples - Machine Head

Dylans - Blood On The Tracks

Pink Floyds;
Dark Side Of The Moon
Wish You Were Here
The Wall

David Bowie's great albums

Aladdin Sane
Low
Ziggy Stardust

Rumours by Fleetwood Mac

Marvyn Gayes - Whats Goin On

Genesis;

Selling England by the Pound
Nursery Crime

Carol Kings - Tapestry

King Crimsons - Red

All of Queens albums

All Supertramps albums

5 of The Moody Blues core 7 albums

Yes - Close To The Edge, Topographic Oceans

Mike Oldfields - Tubular Bells

The Doors - LA Woman

Derek & The D's - Layla

AC/DC - Highway To Hell

Black Sabbath - Paranoid

Neil Youngs;
Harvest
Goldrush
On The Beach

All the albums made by The Eagles, ELO, ELP, Kate Bush, America, Blondie, Dire Straits, The Police

All the above albums arent worthy because they were not made in the 60's, just padding ?

Nice choices, didn't expect you to pick Odessey and Oracle over Friends. Also, who is Jim Croce?
