    I've been getting into 1960s rock lately. I never really was before. One thing I always have loved, though, is whole albums, you know, not only "B" sides, but way down into albums. Here are a few I've bought in the last month:

    Beach Boys Pet Sounds
    The Jimi Hendrix Experience Are you Experienced?
    The Rolling Stones Let it Bleed
    The Beatles white album

    Now I need more, more, more. I was thinking maybe Johnny Cash live from Folsom Prison, or Bob Dylan's Highway 61 Revisited? I don't know all of the good music from the era (I wasn't there). What am I missing. Please, I'd like to hear from folks that lived through it all, and get your recommendations.

    Thanks.

    You got a great start there. I didn't live through the 60's but definately appreciate the music. After you get the Cash you might want to look into:

    Grateful Dead- Workingman's Dead (then start getting all the live stuff you can!)

    Rolling Stones- Exile on Main Street

    The Band w/Dylan- Before the Flood

    Beatles- Abbey Road

    Allman Brothers- Eat a Peach

    The Who- Isle of Wright

    Some of these albums might not necessarily be from the 60's, but they are of the era. My advice would be to pick one or two artists, start at the beginning of their careers, and then keep adding their albums. If you are like me, you will soon start craving more and more of your favorite bands and will start looking to trade live music. Soon your music collection will grow out of control and you will have more tunes than you know what to do with!

    Excellent stuff to begin with, all of the above, plus the ones you already mentioned...

    Pink Floyd- Umma Gumma ( if you like trippy 0

    Pink Floyd- Dark Side of the Moon....turned up LOUD

    Jimi Hendrix- Electric Ladyland....his last album

    Jimi Hendrix and the Band of Gypsies, 1+ 2... great stuff

    The Who- Quadrophenia (spelling?)

    Led Zeppelin 1,2,3,4, all of them....but start with 1

    The BeaTles- Rubber Soul...The White Album...Revolver...Magical Mystery Tour

    Yes- Yesssongs

    Yes- Fragile




    These are only a few of the greatest albums of all time, timeless and "must haves" .

    I would add Tommy and Who's Next by The Who. Both are solid from start to finish. Other suggestions:

    Led Zeppelin (commonly referred to Led Zep I). This album is both bluesy and trippy, and my personal favorite by them.

    The Allman Brothers Band and Idlewild South by the Allman Bros, which is also packaged together on one CD as Beginnings

    Sticky Fingers by the Rolling Stones. They were at their peak on this and the afore-mentioned Exile on Main Street . It's a shame Mick Taylor didn't stick around.
