EPISODE 68 : 1968

They say it's not good to live in the past. The good news there, is that I wasn't alive in 1968! This themed episode was something I really thought about thoroughly and wrote about for about 2-3 weeks. The year 1968 just kept coming to mind along with all the wide variety of music that affected the culture that year. There was so much I just didn't have time to get to: The Beatles (White Album)- The Beatles, God Bless Tiny Tim- Tiny Tim, Scott 2- Scott Walker, The Basement Tapes- Bob Dylan and The Band, Music From Big Pink- The Band, The Progressive Blues Experiment- Johnny Winter, I Wish It Would Rain- The Temptations, The Silver Apples- The Silver Apples, Astral Weeks- Van Morrison, Randy Newman- Randy Newman, Electric Mud- Muddy Waters, The Ice Man Cometh- Jerry Butler, Aerial Ballet- Harry Nilsson, and The Soft Machine- The Soft Machine among many others... Hey, Clint! What the hell IS on this podcast from '68? Well....Musical visits occur from John Fred & The Playboys, Conway Twitty, The Zombies, The Human Beinz, Nico, Archie Bell & The Drells, Nazz, Joe South, Neil Young, and Manfred Mann. Along with more! Topics include "Elvis", Tower Records 1968 albums sale, "The Game of The Century" at the Astrodome, John Cale and Nico, From Hope To Nope, the anniversary of Frankie Lymon's death due to overdose, Mister Rogers' Neighborhood's first episode on NET, and how timeless so much of the music released in 1968 continues to be.
