The 2T started with late "British Invasion" rock, and quickly moved into Hippie Rock / Psychedelic Rock. Acid Rock / Heavy Metal and Prog welled up nearly simultaneously. Then came Punk, Post Punk, New Wave (and Metal never stopped). Lots of good tunes from the 2T.

Here's an album I think Rags might like:



Best psychedelic record



Or is it this one?





Still allowed on you tube. Yeah!
Very nice movie theme from 1970 by Stanley Myers





Cavatina from the Deer Hunter.
Hmmmmm....  This thread needs some serious heavy metal additions ! Big Grin





Ahh yes, memories from high school..   Booze and Judas Priest go together like lipstick and leather.





"You've Got Another Thing Comin'" is a song by British heavy metal band Judas Priest. It was originally released on their 1982 album Screaming for Vengeance and released as a single later that year. In May 2006, VH1 ranked it fifth on their list of the 40 Greatest Metal Songs. It became one of Judas Priest's signature songs along with "Electric Eye" and "Breaking the Law", and a staple of the band's live performances. "You've Got Another Thing Comin" was first performed on the opening concert of the Vengeance World Tour at the Stabler Center in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, on 26 August 1982 and had been played a total of 673 times through the 2012 Epitaph Tour.





Insert cassette in car cassette player and party hearty, man.
This thread needs some more classical guitar, man. Especially with some gas. The true definition of "best" and "classical." And especially since you tube deleted the other video from the other thread.



and so the battle of rags and eric begins......

Oh, oh, by all means, classical guitar.  No 2T music should be without the penultimate guitarist of the era.

Jimi Hendrix.   If I had to pick one song to define the 2T, this is it! Big Grin






Heh,

Here's another trippy song.  I can get stoned just playing it through some distortion generation on VLC player.
A Jr. high favorite.  This song kicks ass.



Presenting one of the best albums of the 2T era. Cool 







Lots of Rock and Roll over stickers on book covers in Jr. High.

classical guitar, ha ha. Pretty good. But Tomorrow Never Knows is much greater. It defines maybe not the haze of the 2T, but its shining moment.

Mad Men paid $250,000 to use this song.  The show's creator believed it was worth it, to authentically portray the sixties. 





In this scene, the character Don Draper has been urged by his (much younger) wife to listen to this song, which is why he skips ahead to it when putting on the record.

This is a what was old, is new again sort of thing, man. Cool   It's an awesome song to do weed to.
One of the best bands    .... ever. Big Grin
