1967 was a year that changed music forever, a year in which an almost mind-bogglingly absurd amount of classic albums were released. When you consider the stuff that gets churned out nowadays, this list is hard to fathom.

Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention - Absolutely Free
The Red Krayola - The Parable of Arable Land
The Incredible String Band - The 5000 Spirits or the Layers of the Onion
Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band - Safe As Milk

Nice list. I am glad someone is realistic rather than plugging albums maaybe a small fraction of people heard of at the time.

Powpowpow, braapbraapbraap.
