Not a Bee Gee to be found

Over at the Ministry of Minor Perfidy, Johno points out what may very well be the best week in the history of rock and roll.

Check out the Billboard Chart for December 20, 1969:

No. 1, "Abbey Road," the Beatles
No. 2, "Led Zeppelin II," Led Zeppelin
No. 3, "Tom Jones Live in Las Vegas," Tom Jones
No. 4, "Green River," Creedence Clearwater Revival
No. 5, "Let It Bleed," the Rolling Stones
No. 6, "Santana," Santana
No. 7, "Puzzle People," the Temptations
No. 8, "Blood Sweat & Tears," Blood Sweat & Tears
No. 9, "Crosby, Stills & Nash," Crosby, Stills & Nash
No. 10, "Easy Rider" soundtrack (featuring the Byrds, the Jimi Hendrix Experience, and Steppenwolf)

Right there, you have the soundtrack to one kick ass roadtrip.

i thought to comment on this entry t'other day, but couldn't think of what to say. i'd like to brag that i have all these on vinyl, but i don't have 3, 7, or 10. i can't even boast that i have them all on cd, or mp3, but at least i can claim (along with millions of others who were walking and breathing in 1969) that i've heard them all.

Ted, i think you've found the perfect Folder One for your new ipod-substitute when you get 'round to getting it.

(aside to Mookie: so there you go)

ya'll have a Merry Christmas!

I'm missing 3 and 7. But I do have some Bee Gees, too, I admit it.
