The 11 Best Albums of 1969

1969 might be the best year for music...ever. The albums that didn't make the list are better than most albums that top the list for other years. Debuts from Crosby Stills Nash, Blood Sweat & Tears, Mott The Hoople, Santana, and Moby Grape all didn't make the list. Bob Dylan's Nashville Skyline is sitting on the sideline. Nick Drake's Five Leaves Left is left out. Stevie Wonder's My Cheri Amour found no love and the Beatles' Yellow Submarine is sunk.

Here are the 11 Best Albums of 1969:

1. The Beatles - Abbey Road
2. Led Zeppelin - II
3. The Rolling Stones - Let It Bleed
4. Led Zeppelin - I
5. Velvet Underground - V.U.
6. The Who - Tommy
7. The Band - The Band
8. Creedence Clearwater Revival - Willy & the Poor Boys
9. The Grateful Dead - Aoxomoxoa (Cosmic Charlie)
10. Blind Faith - Blind Faith
11. Merle Haggard - Okie From Muskogee

I didn't forget Johnny Cash's Live From San Quentin...one of the most memorable albums of this year...but it's a live album and a compilation...which is why it didn't make the list. Same for Ummagumma.

You can buy most of these albums here at my store!
