Been about a year and a half since I've visited AOTM. Gave up on the site once the malware infiltration seemed insurmountable. But, hey, looks like it's been cleaned up and dramatically revamped, so I'm giving it another shot.

During that interim period, I cut way back on my mixes -- partly because, without AOTM, some of the fun was gone; and partly because, in the iPod age, I just don't make cd mixes that often anymore. But the one major project I undertook was going through my collection and creating 2-cd annual mixes for every year since 1966 (my birth year, and probably the first great year for rock & roll). I've been doing single-cd mixes at the end of each year for some time (and, before that, cassette mixes), but it seemed a worthy endeavor to go back and make it a more serious project.

While 1967 is when things really get going for me, '66 wasn't bad. Main challenge was including the obvious classics without it sounding too much like a predictable Time-Life collection that they'd market on late-night infomercials. Some of that was unavoidable, as some of these tracks simply needed to be here however much they've been seared into our collective consciousness by years of radio airplay. Rounded those out with plenty of Nuggets-styled garage/psyche tracks and loads of British Invasion tunes. Incidentally, this is the only time I used two songs from the same band, but Revolver had to be represented, and "Rain" is my favorite Beatles tune, so what can you do?

Absolutely solid... I'd give it a 96 (using the American Bandstand scale of greatness)!

How funny, Marc - I haven't visited aotm in quite some time. And what do I find? Your great mix. This is flawless, though I have to admit - I never quite got the appeal of Cream (or Clapton, post-Yardbirds). And in another weird coincidence, I was at the Natl. Air and Space museum yesterday - that Sopwith Camel album was there as part of the Red Baron display. Good to see ya here, man! Maybe I should get my ass back in mixing gear.

Far out mix.. I love the 60's. I also can relate to your fondness to 66. Would love to trade you my 60's for yours if interested.
