Been listening to a lot of the music of 1968 this year- and as the 50th anniversary of that year ends- a list of my 25 Top albums of 1968. I am just going to list them- I have made comments or posts about all of them at one point in the past twelve months-usually on their 50th anniversary… now it’s on to 1969.

    • I like their stuff- but have never been a big Pink Floyd fan- either in the Barrett or post-Barrett era. I can understand their popularity though. To sum them up in a word- i’d say- it’s ok stuff but i’ve never been a fanatic.

  1. I‘m not familiar with each of these albums, but based on what I know, this is another great list.

    Surely, 1968 was a great year in music, as was 1969, so there should be lots of fodder for 50th anniversary stuff to write about next year!😀

    • Led Zeppelin I & II, Neil Young‘s first solo album, Joe Cocker‘s debut, The Who‘s Tommy, Blind Faith, Santana’s debut, The Band’s eponymous second album, The Beatles’ Abbey Road, The Allman Brothers’ eponymous debut, David Bowie’s Space Oddity, The Rod Stewart Album. And the list goes on and on – it’s friggin’ rock & roll heaven!

      BTW, I’m not some rock encyclopedia and peeked on Wikipedia!😀
