Classic Rock Review of the Year 1967
One of the most influential album years ever, Classic Rock Review looked at the year 1967, during the summer of 2012. During 1967, some of the highest regarded and timeless music ever was produced and released, as the outer limits of the rock n roll universe were pushed into rich and entertaining fusions of genres and frontiers of technology.
There were two great albums put out by The Beatles that year, as well as a new band from California called The Doors. Many of the most vital acts of the sixties were in their prime, including Cream, Jimi Hendrix, and Love. Several more were just getting started with long and fruitful careers, including Pink Floyd, The Grateful Dead, and Jefferson Airplane.

One of the rewarding parts of doing these reviews is the things you discover when you really, really listen. It is a definate education and a “cleansing” of one’s own biases, assumptions, and misconceptions that may have been brought in before the serious listening began.
