53 Years Ago This Month

Last week, I published a post detailing how incredible the month of November was for new albums in 1970.

The same month was also very special in 1967.

Fifty-three years ago this month, six classic albums were released and each generated spectacular sales and critical acclaim.

The Monkees (Released Nov. 6)
Days Of Future Passed

    November knocks it out of the park again! These selections were seemingly made to be blended together into a medley. Smooth sound and I haven’t heard these in a very, VERY long time! May I also add my appreciation for the work you do at tweaking these tunes to perfection…The transitions are seamless and the overall sound is masterful. I’m thankful for your dedication! XOXOXOXO

      Thank you so much, Wendyl ❤️
      I do work very hard at trying to fine tune the sound. Some of these older songs were not mixed very well so getting them to sound better is not easy. I appreciate the compliment … and I appreciate YOU!
      XOXOXOXO

    Well Ray looks like you picked the Cream of 1967!! We all should be on that train!! I’m tapping my toes and am looking foward to Tuesday afternoon!! I am hearing gentle voices and I was worried when I heard there was a Buffalo in Springfield. I have been waiting so long for the sunshine!! I was very Moody and knew I had the Blues!! But as always you got me to take that Magical Mystery Tour!! I had Butterflys when you switched Gears and holy Hollies that’s what we are all about!!

    Good morning Ray. I echo the sentiments of your #1 fan, Wendy, nice job,
    I was struck by the way Mike Nesmith & Neil Young’s work sound like they were laying the foundation for their impending solo careers.
    The Moody Blue’s album was a real game changer. Prog Rock has arrived. An entire album of big, lush arrangements. Wow, an entire orchestra to play with! Different for sure.
    Cream also was breaking the mold. If I’m not mistaken wasn’t Desreali Gears a double LP? Bigger price, but a lot of music to dig. Longer tracks, lots a solos. Yes!
    I love the Hollies sound. They were prolific hit makers.
    Music was headed in a new direction, my direction.
    Thank you, Brother.

      Thank you, Don.
      I think Nesmith was always a country music kind of guy and I believe Young felt a little restricted in CSNY. BOth of them grew so much after their respective bands broke up.
      The Moody Blues practically invented Prog Rock. Without doing that, I think they would have faded from view and been remembered as a one-hit band for Go Now.
      Cream started the Power Trio format and I don’t think any band has ever done it better.
      The Hollies did have a unique sound. Their vocal harmonies were out of this world.
      So glad you enjoyed it and I appreciate the compliment very much.
      ROCK ON, BROTHER
