Good list overall, they got them all right, just not in the right order. The Doors should be up at 2, Surrealistic Pillow should be up at 3, and the rest should all shift down accordingly.

Oh, list, you're so retarded...

FTFA, About the Stones album...

You won't find any of the band's classic songs on the Between The Buttons, but the non-album singles 'Let's Spend the Night Together' and 'Ruby Tuesday' came from the same sessions.

So... why the fark is the album on the list?

/liked The Monkees: Headquarters from '67, but that wouldn't fit on the list.. Neither would Smiley Smile, from The Beach Boys. And Porter Wagoner's Cold Hard Facts of Life was also released in '67.

Not certain which of three I would drop to replace with Moby Grape's debut album.

Actually, Magical Mystery Tour was officially an EP with songs from the movie. The version the article is talking about was the Capitol Records US version that was padded out with the Beatles 1967 singles.

So, the official UK version of the album was

Magical Mystery Tour, "The Fool on the Hill, Flying, Blue Jay Way, Your Mother Should Know, and I Am the Walrus.

Not much of an album there.

It wasn't until sometime in the 70s that the US version became the official version of the album. But as released in '67, the official UK release of Magical Mystery Tour pretty much sucked.
 
2012-12-09 01:33:53 PM
No Moby Grape, no Da Capo?

I would remove Magical Mystery Tour and Surrealistic Pillow for those two. And that's without getting overly subjective.

Sgt. Pepper's is pretty meh. There's some great stuff there, but half of the album is forgettable filler like Lovely Rita, When I'm Sixty-Four, Fixing a Hole, Within You Without You, Good Morning Good Morning (basically the entire 2nd side except for A Day in the Life). It's really good, but wouldn't even touch my top 50 albums of all time.

Thought as much; seemed kind of weird that a great set of songs (Strawberry Fields Forever, Penny Lane, et. al.) were mixed in with some clunkers.

Oh, I thought that was '68, which is why I mentioned Da Capo. Damn, hard to choose now.
 
2012-12-09 02:07:17 PM
Nothing bad on this list (although as others have pointed out, Magical Mystery Tour is far from a great album), but it's too short, especially if your going to give individual acts more than one spot.

Cases can be made for The Songs of Leonard Cohen, The Who Sell Out (hey, I like the fake commercials), Love's Forever Changes, and Pink Floyd's Piper at the Gates of Dawn, as well as the aforementioned Moby Grape

And when the author left out The Velvet Underground and Nico (which should have been #3 at least), he must have been undergoing a massive brain freeze, to put it charitably.

It was released in March 1967. Most of these lists go by release date, but if that was indeed their methodology, then I guess that's as good a reason as any for omitting it.

I disagree. Sgt. Pepper's is pure genius. One great song after another, and ends with the Beatle's best ever recorded song.

Easily should be in the top 5, and they could take out Magical Mystery Tour to make room for it. If MMT is getting credit for all the incredible things Strawberry Fields Forever & I Am the Walrus affected, it's silly to overlook Astronomy Domine & Intersetallar Overdrive.

How does one determine which version is "official".  For one, the full 11-track US version came out *before* the UK EP.  Is the latter "official" just because they're a UK band?
 
Serious question, no snark.

according to wiki, Surrealistic Pillow was recorded in '66, same with The Doors (TFA even cites a Jan. 4 release date); so I'm guessing it's all just a huge oversight. My guess is that Velvet Underground are not "classic rock" in the traditional sense, though VU&Nico is far more relevant than Jefferson Airplane.

also surprised no one's mentioned this:

Should be #2. Sgt. Pepper will always be #1. Forever Changes should be in the top ten albums of all time. 

Rolling Stone magazine ( I know, I don't like it either) has Forever Changes rated high than Dark Side of the Moon.
 
2012-12-09 03:26:07 PM
They should've taken Mystery Tour off there and put this in its place.

Otherwise that list is a great primer for late '60s rock.
 
2012-12-09 03:28:00 PM
To think, back then it was very common for a band to put out 1-2 albums per year. The Stones put out 4 albums in 1965.

I've always liked to point out to people that the following four albums were all released during 1967:

Beatles - Sgt Pepper's
The Doors - The Doors
The Band - Music from Big Pink
Velvet Underground - Velvet Underground & Nico
 
2012-12-09 05:01:39 PM
I'm partial to "Are You Experienced?" I was born in '65 and I remember listening to it or rather hearing it on my older cousin's "record player" when I was about five. It only took me about ten years after that to create my own interpretation of it.

But it's a good list, but I do think Pink Floyd's first should be on there

Why does a pop band appear at both the #10 and #1 spots on a list of Classic Rock albums? (reads again) Okay, the list just says top albums, but still includes the Beatles in the sentence saying how great 1967 was for rock music.

Outside of a handful of assorted songs, the Beatles were not rock artists. I think people today get it mixed up because they wrote songs and played instruments, but they were the boy band of the time. If they were on stage today, they would trade in their instruments for dance moves.

/I don't dislike 'em... just don't miscategorize 'em
