101 Iconic Underground Rock Albums 1966–1970

by Richard Morton Jack



Barnes and Noble Indiebound
The most colorful, detailed, and authoritative guide to the psychedelic albums of the 1960s ever published.
As the 1960s progressed, a socially conscious counterculture emerged—one defined by rock and roll. Artists began to explore trippy new sounds, musicianship reached unsurpassable levels, and for a brief, glorious moment, audiences embraced the genuinely experimental. Never before or since were so many classic albums made in such a short time. From Cream’s Disraeli Gears to the Zombies’ OdesseyandOracle, Psychedelia examines 101 of the era’s most groundbreaking records. Contemporary reviews, rare photographs, new interviews, and a plethora of iconic images and reproductions of cover artwork make this a treasure no music fan should be without.
The artists include:
The Beatles  *  The Byrds  *  Country Joe & the Fish  *  David Bowie *  Donovan * The Doors * Fairport Convention  *  The Grateful Dead  *  Jefferson Airplane  * The Jimi Hendrix Experience * Love  *  The Mothers of Invention  *  Pink Floyd  *  Quicksilver Messenger Service  *  The Rolling Stones  *  Small Faces  * Traffic * The Yardbirds * and more!
