    I agree, I could easily be satisfied with a list of ten from 67. I don't think I could even create a list of 20 that I actually own, truly like, and truly listen to.

    David Bowie - s/t
    Buffalo Springfield - Again
    Cream - Disraeli Gears
    Doors - Strange Days
    JHE -Are You Experienced?
    Love - Forever Changes
    Moody Blues - Days of Future Passed
    Pink Floyd - Piper At The Gates of Dawn
    Procol Harum - s/t
    Simon & Garfunkel - P, S, R & T

    I don't think so. I see this particular year as absolutely extraordinary time, it was like breakthrough 'to the other side'. A cornerstone year for rock.
    And the 20-names limit is not for naming many, on the contrary, it is for reducing some outstanding stuff to 20 names. That makes sense, not a long copy of 'many'.

    yeah, I agree too... but 68 nd 69 was soo much better in terms of quantity of quality release

    1. It's 1967! You'd have to make the list a lot longer than 20 before I ran out of things that I like.

    2. In any event, I don't think I've heard this Pretty Things album (heard the ones before it, though).
