CLASSIC ’60s: The Who – ‘Tommy’

It’s far from perfect, but The Who’s fourth album ‘Tommy’ helped restore their reputation and established the archetype of the rock opera.

CLASSIC ’60s: The Beatles – ‘Magical Mystery Tour’

A double EP in Britain and a full album in the States, ‘Magical Mystery Tour’ is an interesting curio in The Beatles’ catalogue, and a full-stop to a brilliant 1967.

CLASSIC ’60s: Pink Floyd – ‘The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn’

Pink Floyd’s debut album ‘The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn’ is the greatest testament to the genius of Syd Barrett, as well as a key evolutionary milestone in British psychedelia.

CLASSIC ’60s: The Beatles – ‘A Hard Day’s Night’

The Beatles’ third album was their first to consist entirely of original compositions, and captures the Fab Four at the height of Beatlemania.
