Rolling Stone : SUMMER OF LOVE: 1967
I usually don't buy any magazines about music, but I found this Rolling Stone at Los Angeles International Airport and bought at once. 1967 is one of the important years of rock music. First "Rolling Stone" was published in 1967, Otis Redding died in 1967, Bob Dylan came back after motorcycle accident (this was actually at Carnegie Hall on Jan 20, 1968), Beatles shooting Magical Mystery Tour, Martine Luther King delivered his "Beyond Vietnam" speach in NY, The Grateful Dead released their first album, The Doors debut, Buffallo Springfield's "For What It's Worth" went top 10 (No.7 at peak). Woodie Guthrie died, Montery International Pop Festival... In this issue Rolling Stone shows The 40 Essential Albums of 1967.
