They don't have to be the "greatest" or most innovative albums of the decade (though they might be). But simply the three that you've enjoyed the most over the years.
My three favorites would have to be:
1 Pet Sounds - The Beach Boys (1966)
A beautiful record that is so good and so longing it brings tears to the eyes. I never fail to get chills hearing the production on this album. And the brief yet bittersweet songs seamlessly glide from one to the next.
2 Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band - The Beatles (1967)
This album is SUCH a landmark that it almost seems in vogue to dismiss it. I'll never understand why. To me, it remains the pinnacle of the Fab Four's fertile and expanding imaginations.
3 Led Zeppelin II - Led Zeppelin (1969)
It was a passing of the torch, of sorts, when the Beatles "Abbey Road" relinquished its #1 spot on the Billboard 200 to this amped up treasure. Led Zeppelin's debut set the course, but it was the Brown Bomber that remains my favorite of the two. From the ear-opening collage of "Whole Lotta Love" to the sweet delicacy of "Thank You", the next decade would belong to the mighty Zep. Their flight was ascending.
Feel free to pick your three favorites from the 60's.
