1967 was of course the year The Beatles released "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band", one of the most important albums ever. but a lot of other great and important albums were published that year. which ones do you like?

I like them all, by the way. 1967 was a great year. there is a lot of other rock music besides prog that I like.

that Rolling Stones album is the only one I like of them, by the way, though there is the occasional song by them that I like too ("Angie" for example)

Tough choice. The Doors, Incredible String Band, Pink Floyd and Hendrix are all top dogs but Zappa wins by a slight margin because THAT was totally out of the box. Definately a great year for music.

What a year '67 was. It's funny in that with all of these classic timeless albums being released, the biggest selling album of 1967 (in the US at least) wound up being More of the Monkees.

I'll pick two San Fran albums. As much as Baxters is awesome, I have to be in the right frame of mind for it, whereas I can put on Pillow anytime: driving, cookouts, chillin' out, whenever. I'll give it some love. Also that Greatful Dead debut is by far my favorite album of theirs. Lots of upbeat fun numbers, although these days playing "Good Morning Little Schoolgirl" could probably clear a room.

Hi,

Now you can see why I think that the late 60's and early 70's were so important artistically, specially in America, a place that actually had at least 3 VERY DIFFERENT scenes in it .. NY, LA, SF ... that are so well remembered and loved, even 50 years later!

If that is not the ultimate compliment to an artistic scene, and we have not even started on anyone like writers, film makers, painters and other arts ... to give you an idea of how huge that time and place was.

It's impossible for me, to choose one ... too many of them mean a lot more than just an album of music, or some rock band from Chinkapoo, Venus! I can not say that the NY scene is better than LA, or SF, though I have my heart in SF as the music lived until it died (a lot of it of Aids much later!), or in NY, that is not always discussed favorably, but so many folks come back to the Velvet Underground, and specially the undiscussed artistic scene in NY, of which Andy Warhol is the GOD, but there were many others that were far better and should be given some credit. Andy was simply the first one to make it big financially, and it brought the attention to the NY artists. They had been there the whole time, is the only issue!

SF's scene is the one that is not always looked at properly, and it took an outsider to help make it look like the scene in SF had totally died in Altamont! But on a rainy day somewhere in San Jose, you could hear Hot Tuna and Boz Scaggs and others in one night ... and learn that the SF scene was not just 3 or 4 bands ... and quickly!

This whole listing, is what my generation is all about ... and I will always cherish and love those arts ... and speak golden words of them!
... none of the hits, none of the time ... now try finding your own mirror/art! www.pedrosena.com

SF was also important for stand-up comedy, especially the "hungry i"

Clap and here have one of these..  a great craft beer from Philly.. Beer

Next to G.G's Knots..  I probably get the most looks from blasting that from the death machines sound system at stop lights.  Love that song..  probably my favorite of the many versions done of that song.

Yeah of course I love the Pillow... but the artistic and experimental slant to Baxters gives it the edge to me. Not mention the serious amount of ass being kicked on that album by Jorma and Jack.  And though not quite as experimental as the next was, due to the obvious Zappa input, I thought it a better and stronger overall album.

two glaring omissions though..  one I"m a bit surprised about. Figured you might have put in there Jean and it perhaps might have stolen the Baxter's vote. Really the only album of that time that might have taken the vote.

Buffalo Springfield Again

and the other omission.. perhaps the single best album to come out of west coast '67 IMO. The debut album by Moby Grape.

Strange Days, Days of Future Passed, and Are You Experienced (which is like a greatest hits album).

I've gone for Velvet Underground and the Moody Blues, although there are a lot of great albums here.

the Who Sell Out is a really good and strong album. Plenty of fun, rock, rebellion and spirit.

Plenty of strong albus listed in this poll, i need to listen to those i havent heard on before voting.

i hope Procol Harum gets some love cause its importance is is easy to forgett.

I admit that Baxters is the cooler album with more wild acid rock stuff going on. Honestly though, I've only really delved into Airplanes non-Pillow albums once I had the internet.Embarrassed
Pillow has all kinds of nostalgia value for me, especially outdoor parties for some reason. Hell, even last summer, at the one party my friends and I got absolutely ripping drunk, late at night outside we were all singing along as loud as possible..."You know I love you baby, YES I DO!!" It took me around three to four days to fully recover. I don't party much like I used to...

hahahah.. that is awesome man.  The Airplane is good for that.  Funny the last similar experience I had with was a damn RIO group from Kentucky..  dude..  I have legendary stamina for that kind of stuff.. but I went down hard for the count and stayed on the canvas for some days  The hell with metal groups..  you have to watch parties with or to RIO-Avant..  it can hurt.

Super amazing year, possibly the best ever, especially when taking into account that some of the biggest entries are really some of the most overrated ever (esp. VU&N)

Love the entries from Jimi, Airplane, Who, Doors, Cream, Floyd, Mothers, Big Bro, Traffic (down year for the Stones and I'll take Between the Buttons before Satanic Majesty's), but even with all that greatness, I still find it an easy vote for Days of Future Passed.

Other worthy rock selections not included:
The Kinks - Something Else by the Kinks
Love - Forever Changes

Other notable greats from the world of Jazz:
Pat Martino - El Hombre, Strings
McCoy Tyner - The Real McCoy
Gary Burton - Duster (considered by some to be the first fusion album) 
Steve Kuhn - The October Suite
Lee Morgan - The Procrastinator
Thelonious Monk - Straight No Chaser
Miles Davis - Sorcerer, Miles Smiles
Wayne Shorter - Adam's Apple, Schizophrenia
Don Ellis Orchestra - Electric Bath

And from the world of Blues:
Albert King - Born Under a Bad Sign
Buddy Guy - I Left My Blues in San Francisco
John Mayall and the Blue Breakers - A Hard Road
