It Was Fifty Years Ago Today…

It’s been half a century since The Beatles released what some would argue to be their finest album: Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. Many music publications have recently been celebrating the record’s 50th anniversary with laudatory articles expounding on its monumental cultural significance.

But Sgt. Pepper’s was only one of many astonishing albums to be released in 1967. Here are 25 more from that revolutionary year that should not be overlooked…

“An eerily smooth assimilation of the Beatles and The Bends that seems too pleasant to be true.”

“Coming on like the ocean, ancient, enveloping, and with just a little darkness beneath.”
-Under the Radar

This band has all of three fans on Facebook, and I’m one of them. All their stuff is good.
