Ok, so let's have some fun with this.... One of the questions that was asked was for your favorite song from 1967, I thought Ken meant from Hendrix and said Red House but the more I think about it I believe he meant from that year in general and I would have to say The Doors Light My Fire although honestly Red House would be right up there. 

What say you guys? What's your favorite tune from 67?

Love White Rabbit & Purple haze goes without saying, nice choices!

One album I almost forgot would be Pink Floyd 'Piper at the Gates of Dawn' not one of their more well known releases but a great album nonetheless. Really set the stage as to what that band would become.

It's a lot easier for me to pick one than three.

Single: Whiter Shade of Pale (Procol Harum)
Album: Disraeli Gears (Cream)

Long stories connected to each of them

It's interesting to think about the choice from three perspectives.

1) What was my favorite in 1967?
2) What was most impactful/influential over time?
3) What is my favorite now?

Where and when I grew up I often didn't develop and appreciation for some music, or even hear it, until a year or more after its release. And in some cases it took decades for me to connect with it.

E.g., I didn't become a die-hard Stones fan until Beggar's Banquet was released -- and then I listened to all of the earlier recordings with a different ear. That said, Satisfaction was a favorite in 1965.

I have a number of favorites from 1967 but the Buffalo Springfield were probably my favorite group (you can add the Stones, The Who, The Spencer Davis Group, Van Morrison and the Doors). Buffalo Springfield's music just spoke to me. The Buffalo Springfield Again album was released in 1967 and along with the first album Buffalo Springfield (1966 release) are still two of my favorite albums. Here is my song list:

"For What It's Worth" Buffalo Springfield  
“Ruby Tuesday” Rolling Stones
“Gimme Some Lovin’ The Spencer Davis Group
“I Can See for Miles” The Who

Yeah Beggar's Banquet was a great album!  Thumbup

My favorite Stones album always comes down to either Let it Bleed or Sticky Fingers and I never can seem to choose. I wasn't old enough to appreciate them at the time but was great to be able to basically Binge Listen to so many great albums from so many great artists when I got older!

I didn't have any older siblings so didn't really start to get into Rock & Roll until I was about 7 years old and the album that started it all for me was Led Zeppelins Physical Graffiti. I'll never forget the first time I heard Kasmir, I was hooked immediately, not to mention Ten Years Gone, In the Light, and Trampled Underfoot. Physical Graffiti is still by far my favorite Zeppelin album and they are still in my top two or three favorite bands of all time.

Here's a question after reading @Oasisdave: What was the first single or rock album you purchased? Here are my first 45's from 1957, I was weeks from turning 10 years old.
Elvis - Jailhouse Rock/Treat Me Nice
Everly Brothers – Wake-up Little Suzie/Maybe Tomorrow

That's actually an easy one for me. I remember being in a Gemco store and they had their little music section right by the exit and all the top hits or newer albums displayed. That day I got Led Zep Physical Graffiti, Aerosmith Toys in the Attic and Bad Company Straight Shooter. 

It was actually my mom that bought them as I was only I think 8 at the time. I remember she got herself the first Journey album that day as well, at least I think that's the album she bought. 

Speaking of 45's my mom has a little case with a bunch of Elvis and other artists 45's in it. She doesn't really listen to music anymore but I know she still has the little case with them in it.

Earlier today, I was playing Pink Floyd's "Comfortably Numb" in my mother's kitchen.  Keep in mind, I'm 33 years old and most of the music I listen to is from a decade or two before my being conceived. 

To my shock & embarrassment, she walks in on me playing David Gilmour air guitar to the 2nd guitar solo of that song and I just hear her cackle & laugh!  The conversation went something like this:

"You are your father's son!" 

"Well, unless there was one suave, smooth mailman once upon a time then it must be true..."

"You have his walk, his talk, even his music taste.  Why aren't you listening to that computer-made crap that's on the radio today?"

"Like you said, ma, I like music that was made with soul, passion, and music you can feel touch your soul.  My music is the music you and pop grew up with, mostly."


Hendrix, Cream, Led Zep, Allman Brothers, Janis Joplin & plenty of those from way-back-when...Their music just caresses & warms my soul.

The first rock album I ever purchased was Aerosmith's Greatest Hits (Red version, CD).  I was 11 years old.

I am 34 and have the same taste in music.
I can't believe how bad today's music is. It just keeps getting worse and worse and worse. Not one band around today would have had a record deal back then.
Thank you for sharing.

Two things I can listen to all day are David Gilmour playing guitar and the voice of Sade.
