Wednesday Question: Best Album of the 1960s?
Ah, the 1960s. The birthplace of modern music, thanks to a movement which still echoes decades later. Much could be said about how the 1960s counter culture inspired youngsters to pick up guitars and start a revolution, or how live music could be set in a field with thousands of open-minded music fans in attendance. And just think - it was the Beatles broke the mould and showed that bands could write their own songs rather than rely on writers at labels. What would music be like without the events of the 1960s? That's why this week's Wednesday question is:

What are the best albums of the 1960s?

Okay, so the UG readership might not be as familiar with underground '60s releases as they might like, but in a way that's a good thing. You're better placed to pick out the long-standing classics which still influence artists today - and that's a real measure of a great album. The rules: post one album nomination per comment, and upvote any that you agree with. The album had to be released between 1960 and 1969. This is the last in our "best of the decade" series, so let's go out with a bang! Dive into the comments and let's figure out what the greatest album from the 1960s really is, and your nomination could appear in our top 10 list this Friday. Good luck!
