    All great tunes Glenn. You do realize that some of those groups were....well.....you know.....colored?

    I saw Billy Joe Royal at a country show in Wolf Trapp after he went back to his country roots. Down in the Boondocks is still a favorite of mine.

    In my early teens, I was divided between two social attractions; hallucinegenic drugs and dancing. I got along fine with the heads as well as the JC crowd. My motorhead friends could not understand what I saw in psychodelic music and my head friends could not understand why I loved Mo-Town tunes so much. The fact is, you can't dance very well to most psychodelic songs and Mo-Town music could be scary when doing certain kinds of drugs. As I was more and more shunned by the JC's for letting my hair grow and wearing more flamboyant clothing, I got more into the psychodelic scene.

    For a pretty good depiction of what the 60's and early 70's psychodelic scene was really like, check out the movie Psych-Out

    There are so many now obscure groups and one hit wonders that broke some musical barrier or another. The Zombies had a completely different sound. Status Quo had one of the most recognizable guitar riffs in music. The Blues Magoos mix of rythym and blues and psychodelic was phenominal even if it was dated. I truly do miss the diversity that was in music as I was growing up in the 60s and 70s. Disco, while I like some of it, was the death nell to innovative music.
    I thoroughly agree here... I would like to add: It appears there was a freedom of mind to create during that era... Blame it on drugs, suggest it was due to free thinking, see it as progressive change... whichever...

    The level of creativity has IMO not been matched since.

    Yeah well you know I do have enough diversity in me to appreicate some of the music by Black groups back in the 50's and early 60's when they still played good music. Can't say that anymore. Yeah I'm really open minded you know.

    Actually I liked "I knew you when" by Billy Joe best of all. Down in the Boodocks was great also. Just love the oddies but goodies. Just hated it when the Beatlies came along with their long hair and ruined music and kick started the drug culture big time in my opinion. Thank you, thank you very much.

    I can understand someone not particularly liking the Beatles music, but I don't see how anyone could dislike all of it. The Beatles, as Paul McCartny so aptly puts it, just sang mostly silly love songs.....what's wrong that?

    Here Glenn, educate yourself a little bit. Here is a sampling of 15 Beatles songs I want you to honestly listen to and give us a report on; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ho_xNXgq7gg

    You only have to endure about 20-30 seconds of each song, so at least give it a try.
