1967

Beatles -- Magical Mystery Tour. Not exactly a favorite Beatles album, but I've always loved the non-album singles that Capitol included on the US (now the "standard") LP version of MMT. Penny Lane/Strawberry Fields Forever was the first record that I ever bought, it's still one of the best double A-side singles that I've ever heard.

I ran into a "40 best albums released in 1967" list just a little bit ago. I didn't start buying albums until 1969 (too young, no money), so it was a little surprising to me that I had a goodly number of these sitting on my shelf, most in vinyl, and most in vinyl AND CD. A pretty good year, I think:

Grateful Dead -- Grateful Dead
Beatles -- Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
Magical Mystery Tour
Jimi Hendrix Experience -- Are You Experienced?
Axis: Bold As Love
Doors -- The Doors
Strange Days
Rolling Stones -- Between the Buttons
Jefferson Airplane -- Surrealistic Pillow
After Bathing at Baxter's
Moby Grape -- Moby Grape
Big Brother and the Holding Company -- Big Brother and the Holding Company
Pink Floyd -- Piper at the Gates of Dawn
Byrds -- Younger Than Yesterday
Aretha Franklin -- I Never Loved a Man the Way I Love You
Velvet Underground -- VU and Nico
Cream -- Disraeli Gears
Arlo Guthrie -- Alice's Restaurant
Moody Blues -- Days of Future Passed
Bob Dylan -- John Wesley Harding
The Who -- The Who Sell Out
Donovan -- Mellow Yellow
Otis Redding and Carla Thomas -- King and Queen (and by the way, RIP "Duck" Dunn)
Buffalo Springfield Again

Sirius XM, just caught the tail end of 4/28/71, Fillmore East.

St Stephen > NFA > GDTRFB > NFA

Going Down the Road features an additional verse:

I'm going where those chilly winds don't blow
I'm going where those chilly winds don't blow
Going where those chilly winds don't blow
Don't want to be treated this way.

The first time I heard this, I thought that Jerry was singing "I'm going where those shitty winds don't blow." And maybe he was. But probably not.

Despite the dearth of jams, and despite the WOS vocals that sometimes seem to slice right through my head (I've got a fair amount of higher-frequency hearing loss; you'd think that these sibilant vox would help compensate for my hearing deficiencies, but no, instead they sometimes edge over into white noise territory for me-- a little unpleasant), I'm very much enjoying this one.
