Personally, I'm going with Spanish Castle Magic.
Whats next? Heaviest song from 1968? 1966?
We already have a thread for 1966.
Heaviest rock music released in 1966?
Richard & The Young Lions "You Can Make It"
The What's New-"Up So High"...I always thought the guitar line on this was pretty heavy.
Cabin fever rears its ugly head.
I have to go with Purple Haze ahead of SCM. Another contender has to be Beck's Bolero from Jeff Beck, b-side to the lightweight Hi Ho Silver Lining single.
The Attack - Magic in the Air (1967)
Skip Bifferty - On Love
Vanilla Fudge-- You Keep Me Hangin' On has to be a contender.
The garage tracks above aren't as "heavy" but they are great.
The Creation - How Does It Feel To Feel (US Version)
The Deviants (1967) PTOOFF!
If we're counting covers, this is heavier than "I Can See For Miles"
Spanish Castle Magic
The Attack - with John DuCann.
"You Keep Me Hanging On."
I found the 1966 thread kind of interesting, and I got some great new-to-me recommendations! The timing of the mid sixties in interesting for this topic. By the time Zep and Sabbath got going, there was lots of what we'd consider "heavy" rock that was well known. But in the years leading up to that, much of what was evolving toward that kind of heavy was much lesser known, so it's great to be able to discover what I might have missed back in the day.
"Red Sky At Night" by the Accent deserves a mention
Here's an obscurity contender from that year. Georgia's Bitter Creek - "Plastic Thunder".
Heavy Music Part 1 - Bob Seger & The Last Heard.
Heavy Music Part 2 - Bob Seger & The Last Heard.
I’m not the world's biggest Doors fan, but surely this must take the cake for 1967, no?
Purple Haze or Manic Depression
Sunshine Of Your Love
