    Those are the two artists I hadn't heard of either.


    Also now that I've woken up a bit I am going wonder aloud where Songs of Leonard Cohen and Chelsea Girl are and try to suppress going off into the complete lack of jazz on the list.

    And regret that I don't know Safe As Milk well enough to know if I'd put it here or not.

    That being said the albums I know from the 40 are all really good except for the Procol Harum.

    Man, 1967 was a really good year for music.

    That said, I've personally always been suspicious of the Rolling Stone overemphasis on the greatness of the Rolling Stones. Not that it's necessarily present on this list, I just remember their other "List" issues (500 greatest songs, 500 greatest albums) being extremely Rolling Stones-heavy.

    Tom, may I be so bold to ask your age? I was only a wee tot of 7 years in 1967 so I hadn't expanded my music knowledge beyond Mickey Mouse Club or Gilligans Island theme song yet...Elvis in 1969 opened my eyes. Once they were opened and Rock n' Roll became my lullaby's to sleep at nite, I stepped right into Zeppelin...I would have likedd to have been born earlier to experience afew of these on the list...

    I was going to mention something negative about The Zombies not being on this list but they released in 65 and 69.

    The Doors-I read Danny Sugermann's "no one get's out of here alive" and was a big doors fan in the late 80's. Can't listen to one song from them now days.

    The Velvet Underground-I miss Andy and Edie more than this band. Love Rock and Roll and Sweet Jane.

    The Kinks-I do not own 1 song from this group but have been interested in getting into them forever.

    Nothing showing for Crosby Stills & Nash showing either. Parts of Radiohead's in rainbows new album reminds me of this group.

    The flying burrito brothers-Nothing came out in 67. I read the review on the new Gram Parson's book this weekend. I need to pick up the book and a CD from these guys.

    Bob Dylan-There was a great thread in here that listed his career. I remember hearing his music 20 years ago and saying to myself "what a horrible angry person" I laugh at his songs today. What's that say about me?
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.
