Album 1 Track 1 - Episode 7

This episode features rock music released between the years 1966 and 1970.  It is remarkable how many great bands emerged during that time, especially in 1968.

In this mix, you will hear iconic bands - like Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, and Jimi Hendrix - San Francisco psychedelia from Jefferson Airplane and Santana, and even some Foghat.

Two things that I find striking in the mix: how powerful and musical Chicago sounds against these other bands and how much the vocals in Spirit's Fresh-Garbage foretells the vocals of Pearl Jam's Eddie Vetter.

Hope you dig it.

Here is the playlist:

Good Times Bad Times by Led Zeppelin

Foxy Lady by The Jimi Hendrix Experience

For Your Love by The Yardbirds

All Strung Out Over You by The Chambers Brothers

Shakin' All Over by The Guess Who
