I'm pretty sure I own most of the essentials, however add them anyway in case I have forgotten or do not know of one. I currently dream of building an extensively beautiful 60's catalog.


You can never fucking trust Canada when Canada decides to report on world news that doesn't concern Canada. Canada is only in it for Canada's sake. Canada doesn't even know Batman.

You mean the essential collections? Don't buy best of albums. Every song is taken out of context in my opinion. If we are not talking about that then buy Blonde On Blonde and Freewheelin', every album by The Doors from the 60's and you'll be set.

I'm not going to claim that any of these are obscure, but here's a few of my favorite less gigantic 60s albums:

King Crimson-In The Court of the Crimson King
The Velvet Underground and Nico-self titled/studio album
Strawberry Alarm Clock- Wake Up...It's Tomorrow
The Stooges-The Stooges

I'll come back when I think of others.

i'd be inclined to participate if you had posted even a partial list of your current catalogue. but tbh, i see no reason to waste the effort in making a list of what you probably already have.

pet sounds - the beach boys

and check out a band called dr. dog. they're a modern day band but sound like they're straight out of the 60s. Really similar to the beatles/the beach boys. I uploaded a few of my favorites of theirs on my youtube account because they're not too well known and the songs aren't on youtube yet:

A couple years outside of the 60's, but still important to any vintage record collection is Satori by the Flower Travellin band.

This man speaks the truth. blonde on blonde, highway 61 revisited, freewheelin bob dylan, and bringin it all back home were my personal favorites and are all classics. Most of his albums are good though, at least all the ones I've heard, so I don't think you can really go wrong with getting any albums of his. Even his newer stuff that he released after 2000 is still amazing.

What about nirvana? (the uk based prog rock band not seattle based punk rock band) heres a bit from wiki to give ya an idea of their sound

"The group were in the school of baroque-flavoured, melodic pop-rock music typified by the Beatles of "Rubber Soul" and "Revolver", the Beach Boys of Pet Sounds and God Only Knows, the Zombies of Odessey and Oracle and Time Of The Season, the Procol Harum of A Whiter Shade of Pale, the Moody Blues of Days of Future Passed and Nights in White Satin and the Kinks of Waterloo Sunset and Love (band) Forever Changes. The majority of the tracks on Nirvana's albums fall into that broad genre of contemporary popular music, not easily categorized but perhaps best described as the baroque or chamber strand of "progressive rock, soft rock or "orchestral pop" and " Chamber Pop"."

L.A Woman was '72, but close enough.

Speaking of close enough, "The Madcap Laughs" by Syd Barrett is an obscure essential, though, it was released two days after reaching the '70's, I'd say it's close enough.

Pretty good list except the fact that you got L.A Woman of all the Doors albums. In my opinion the worst. (Still good). I'd pick the debut The Doors or Waiting For The Sun but that's just an opinion I guess.

I tried listening to that the other day and I couldn't get into it at all.

I'm just wondering, how many listens did it take for you to "get it"? Because it really didn't leave much of an impression the first time.

I started to enjoy it on my second listen, it got better with each listen after that. That said, you'll either love it or hate it, there's little in between.
