    Both trax are fine but don't make me shiver & shake
    Maybe Hendrix [or some others] doesn't fit on this list wich consist mainly of garage/surf tunes, but that's the 60's

    Anything from Wanda Jackson. She is still touring around the world, 58 years after her first single in 1953. Then she toured with pubescent Elvis Presley and showed him how to treat a lady. I saw her a few years ago in Montreal in a concert organized by the local rockabillies and was impressed. She sure knows how to rock a church basement.

    Nah. Never mind the Sex Pistols. Here's the Clash.

    As hip as the Pistols were, they also were nothing more than puppets from marketing maestro Malcolm McLaren. Which he made very clear with his movie "The great rock'n'roll swindle". While The Clash were musicians and they did more than one album... Even Bruce Springsteen admitted he wished he had the talent of The Clash. ;-)

    And to those who pretend that the Sex Pistols invented punk, what a coincidence that their manager, Malcolm McLaren was also the last manager of the New-York Dolls in 1975, the band who, along with Iggy Pop and Lou Reed, were the original punks... But hey, Malcolm was a marketing genius as I mentionned.

    This is coming from an 18 year old who has been listening to the 60's music all his life. My favorite would have to be Seger's Ramblin' Gamblin' Man. That song, I can just CRANK!!! I hate that new (c)rap that they play on the radio now a days.

    I've been grooving to Harry Nilsson's "Jump Into the Fire" lately. It builds, fades and builds again, maintaining a high energy and interest level throughout.

    They don't play music on the radio near me -
    Talk talk, its only talk ...

    All the good prog and rock stations in my area are gone -
    I think WRNR out near Annapolis, MD is probably good -
    but their signal doesn't reach my place -
    even with antenna boosters & a rotor!
    2ch - Oppo981, JoLida502, JBL L200+, KEF 105.4
    HT7- XDA-2, BDP93, 4b NRB, B&K 5ch amp, Vandy 3A, 2Ce, VCC1, TF600 & JBL 4641

    60's music is was got me thru the war (conflict ? police action ? whatever..). AFVN radio
    (Armed Forces Vietnam) was a better rock station that what we have today
    (and no damned car commercials) ..anyway,

    its good to see an 18 y.o. appreciating some of the 60's tunes..it was quite an era ....my 30 y.o. son loves the punk/garage genre from then.

    I made some little 12 inch narrow shelves that are wall mounted and next to the 3 active turntables in the home. I put the jackets up when playing the disks and can tell later what is still on the turntable.

    The 3 currently displaying are : BS&T - Child is Father to the Man. 2. LedZep - first, and 3. Clash - Combat Rock.

    Great track! I've always really liked Harry Nilsson and that song still sounds fresh as the day it was recorded. Here are some more by Harry that come to mind (not recorded as loudly as "Jump Into the Fire" so crank them up!)......







    Harry had more talent in his little finger than many current day "retro" artists like Lenny Kravitz have in their entire body (nothing against Lenny)....

    I always liked his "you broke my heart , you tore it apart, so f*ck you"

    they don't write great lyrics like that anymore ...

    Yeah, that's another classic from the "Son of Schmilsson" LP. I remember when I was a teenager we'd always give that particular track a little extra volume!!!
