Rock Revival's Time Capsule (1967): The Best Year Ever in Music ?
What do you think is the most creative seminal year in rock ? For me (and i'm sure for many others) it has to be 1967, the world seems on the brink of destruction, China tests it's H bomb, the middle east is a powder keg, Vietnam rages but at the heart of the storm there is Monterey and the Summer of Love.
Take a look at the albums that were produced in this year; arguably this group are amongst the most important albums ever.
