1969 was 50 years ago... Hard to believe. All these current and impending 50th Anniversary box sets won't let us forget. These music sets (and the copyright ramifications that go with them) have made musical 50ths a bigger deal than 5-0's in many other fields - besides the weddings and birthdays category. I was a baby then and couldn't see or hear much beyond the crib, but I would like to believe that the place I grew up in in the USA stayed sort of '1969-ish' until about 1974-75 - end of Vietnam war, maybe. Some locales changed slower than others. Abbey Road, Easy Rider, Woodstock, 'Space Oddity', Elvis in Vegas, Switched On Bach, Zeppelin I, Dylan gone Country, the Moon landing (conspiracies aside), the Manson murders, Altamont, the 'last' year of the 1960s... What are your favorite albums, songs, and memories from that year? Was the music as good as it was in '66, '67 and '68? The music and cultural touchstones from that year have persisted in the popular consciousness. Is it because a lot of folks who were alive then are still alive, keeping the memory alive? Or was it really a special time worthy of attention from even those who weren't around to remember it?
