Album: Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (1967) / Artists: The Beatles

On May 26th, 1967, the sensational rock band, The Beatles released its eighth studio album, spending not one, or two but a whopping 27 weeks on the UK Albums Chart. This unseemly act by The Beatle’s exciting experimentation with orchestral overdubs and a range of sound effects with the prowess of producer George Martin made for a critically acclaimed album that not only supplemented devotion for its already faithful following but is described as a hallmark in rock music. The album art designed and made by pop artists, Jann Haworth and Peter Blake was also unorthodox, with the background holding some of the quartet’s heroes, celebrities of the time and some rather odd people too.

Album: I Never Loved a Man the Way I Love You / Artist: Aretha Franklin

On Spring of 1967, March 10th, this remarkable album was released, making this Aretha Franklin’s 11th studio album, and the first for Atlantic Records. “I Never Loved a Man (The Way I Love You)” climbed to number two on the Billboard charts and went certified Gold within the same year. Aretha wears her heart on her sleeve as she tells it with unfettered emotion in tracks like “Respect,” “Do Right Woman, Do Right Man” and “Drown in My Own Tears.” Although entertainment powerhouses like Rolling Stone berated the album for its lack of skillfulness, in part to the band, they were vindicated when the album was added to the magazine’s “100 Greatest Albums Ever”, making Aretha a notable force to be reckoned with.

Album: Velvet Underground and Nico / Artists: Velvet Underground

The Velvet Underground & Nico, a debut album by American rock band Velvet Underground recorded in ’96 and released during the spring of March 1997, proved more than its apparent apathy and lack of life. They ventured into themes such as drug abuse, and sexual deviancy aided by producer Andy Warhol which at the time, was utterly appalling but hypnotizing at the same time.

Album: Something Else / Artist(s): Ornette Coleman

Jazz saxophonist Ornette Coleman graces us with his debut album “Something Else!!!!” released in November 1958; Classified as “Free Jazz”. With the feature of a piano rarely to be seen in his subsequent albums, he brings out an invigorated look into how jazz is pliable and smooth. With traditional bebop applications that leave your face cringed with the twists and curls of the instruments, the responses they give; as if they are in a conversation and only the instruments are allowed to talk. This album is indeed something else entirely.

Album: Elvis Presley / Artist: Elvis Presley

Elvis Presley’s self-titled breakout album released in March 1956 to an all too accommodating crowd, made for good rock and roll. The album, recorded at RCA Victor recording studios, a subsidiary of Sony Music with a total length of 28 minutes 3 seconds. The self-titled album received accolades such as “1,001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die” and certified Gold the following year and Platinum in 2011. Presley seems to have that uncanny ability to change between his original blues accented, up-tempo feel and go to a more somber, stranger Elvis.

Album: Live at the Apollo (1963) / Artists: James Brown and the Famous Flames

Live at the Apollo” album was, to begin with, a riot in itself, a defiant act by James J. Brown who went against the advice of the head of now-defunct King Records to release a live version instead of a studio one. James ended up financing its recording on his own. Published in May of 1963, it received numerous awards and got plenty of airplay from the radio stations. The well-choreographed dances and complementary harmonies of the Famous Flames, only adds to the appeal of James’ reckless vocals that charm and his character as an aggressive artist.

Album: Tell Mama / Artist: Etta James

Blues and soul sensation Etta James’ eighth studio album and second with Cadet Records, “Tell Mama” was released on August 21, 1968. With the genius of a producer Rick Hall, the album received its fair share of accolades, from entering the Billboard chart and singles from the album hitting the Billboard Hot 100 charts. After much convincing from Leonard Chess, “Tell Mama” was recorded at FAME Studios receiving critical acclamation from Allmusic’s critic Bill Dahl. Etta James says it as it is in this beautifully arranged piece.

Album: Bringing it All Back Home(1965) / Artist: Bob Dylan

Bob’s fifth studio album “Bringing It All Back Home” was released on 22nd of March 1965; he recorded with Columbia Records. The album hit number six on Billboard’s Pop Album chart and crowned UK’s charts later that spring. Dylan had this extraordinary ability to blend rock and folk music that turned out to be quite useful. The type of musicality applied and lyrics spans the range of his emotions, leaving very little left to talk about after listening to this album, he covers a lot!

Album: In the Wee Small Hours / Artist: Frank Sinatra

Frank Sinatra’s ninth studio album “In the Wee Small Hours” was released in April 1955 with Capitol Records. The album did well as a commercial success due, in no small part to, Sinatra’s past accomplishments. We get to experience a different side of Sinatra as he explores themes such as solitude, unrequited love and depression, thus making the album one of the first concept albums: an album with a broad meaning as the sum of their songs, then they do individually.

Album: Pet Sounds (1966) / Artists: The Beach Boys

The Beach Boys’ eleventh studio album was released on the 16th day of May 1966, produced almost entirely by Brian Wilson. The album hit number 10 in the Billboard 200 and held top ten on UK’s charts for six months. Wilson, at the time, had stopped touring to focus on writing and recording, thus the zealous recording and pure music. His goal was one, to make the greatest rock album ever. In collaboration with songwriter Tony Asher, Wilson did just that, combining unique sounds with the rock genre that gave it that unique gracefulness, rivaling the likes of The Beatle’s “Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” as the greatest album of all time. The experimentation with music production influenced a lot of other productions afterward.
