1967

One of my favorite years growing up, probably as I was too young to appreciate the issues our country was facing at the time. I was not too young to appreciate the music, however, and enjoyed the Beatles, the Beach Boys, and a somewhat unusual choice for a seven/eight-year-old, Buffalo Springfield, an outlandish and outlandishly-talented short-lived supergroup. I was wandering through YouTube this evening and found this gem:

Buffalo Springfield - Mr. Soul - YouTube

^^^Enjoy the music and be bemused by the costumery and stage antics.

Ahhh yes. The year I graduated from HS. There was some great music that year (and some stinkers you never hear any more).

I enjoy the fact that some of that music still sounds good to my children and a lot of it still sounds good to me.

Viet Nam was hanging over the heads of all of us during that year and the following five years I was in college. It was a powerful motivator to keep my grades up.

Buffalo Springfield had a strong war protest song "for what its worth" that was played on the Smothers Brothers comedy hour and was considered very very over the line. I think it may have been a factor in their show being cancelled by the network.

1967...my first year on the big city police department. Just back from 'Nam. Very troubled times with much more ahead. The girls were loosened up, though. Did not like the British invasion music.... Four Tops, O'Jays, Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes, Smokey and the Miracles, James Brown, Otis Redding, Marvin Gaye, Temptations...THAT'S music!!!!

I still play their music, in fact, there are several tracks on my iPod I listen too on long motorcycle rides. Stephen Stills is, IMO, one of the greatest guitarists who ever existed, and his work with Buffalo Springfield was when he was at the top of his game.

I was 13 in 1967. What an incredible year for music. In those days, my sound system consisted of a 9-volt portable AM radio, and it seems in many ways the music sounded more fantastic then than it does now on my current Kplisch 7.1 system.

here, I have to agree with you. I still listen to monoral recordings from that era on my old Technics turntable and it sounds far better than the digital remasters

1967 - My dad was doing a tour in Vietnam, and the rest of the family lived near the military base in Italy.

We could get our hands on 45 rpm records of the latest hits like these, but they had import labels. I still have a Beatles "She Loves You" with an italian label on it.

Ahhh, yes. 1967.

Great year for me. Separated from active duty USS America, Portsmouth VA, November 1967. "Haze gray & underway" no more!
Had some hectic days a few months earlier on the fringe of the Six Day War.




There was an old expression in days gone by. (no slur intended)
Free, White & 21. Not a bad place to be in 1967..... and out of the service.

A few months later?... the draft lottery! Lots of howling in the quiet dorm halls that night! Ha Ha.

Old Vietnam era songs here. Nostalgia for some of us old timers.

Well, now you went and reminded me why 1967 was also a really bad year. The kid who lived a few houses down that I grew up with, his father was killed in Nam in 1967. It was an event that has shaped much of my current world view, and the point where I think my childhood ended and the real world intruded.

I was a big fan too. "For What It's Worth" could have been written last week.

There's something happening here
What it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
Telling me I got to beware
I think it's time we stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
There's battle lines being drawn
Nobody's right if everybody's wrong
Young people speaking their minds
Getting so much resistance from behind
I think it's time we stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
What a field-day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly say, hooray for our side
It's time we stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you're always afraid
You step out of line, the man come and take you away
We better stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, now, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

Thanks for the memory booster.
I think that For What It's Worth is one of their best works.
I was a Junior High school kid wise beyond my years at the time.
Or so I thought in that THC induced cloud

I didn't exist in 1967, but I do like the music and the cars from that era. The first album (tape actually) I ever bought was Jimi Hendrix Are You Experienced? which I believe was first released in 1967.

I was young enough not to have noticed most of the musical and fashion atrocities that happened in the 80's. I started paying attention around the time Nirvana first got famous. Incidentally, I'm wearing flannel right now.
