It must have been tough for you during the Depression and the Wall Street Crash. Blimey, who'd have thought that the Charlston would have gone out of fashion, eh?

I love the music from all periods, but as I have to choose, I picked 1968-1972 as it has most of the bands I love at different stages:
- The Beatles at their peak and end - White Album thru Abbey Road
- The Doors
- KC, Jethro Tull, ELP, Yes, Led Zeppelin early years
- Pink Floyd moving from psychdelic to progressive
and many classics:
- The Who's Tommy
- KC's In the Court
- Yes' Fragile
- Bowie's Ziggy Stardust

There would be great examples from all periods...

Why didn't the options for 63-67, 68-72 and 73-77 list Miles Davis too? He was every bit as important as the others through all those slots.

this poll is unfair & biased

Postby picken on Sat Nov 10, 2007 1:08 am

missing option 2002-2007 (Porcupine Tree, KC semi-final edition, RF soundscapes, F&E return, Celine Dion.... the list continues)

So I had to vote for the Discipline, Talking heads, Blondie, Exposure, Hall & Fripp era instead. For nostalgic reasons, I can still recall the arguments I had with my friends who did not "get it" and up to this date think I am weird & somewhat retarded in my musical preferences.

Also 1969-2009 would have been an acceptable option for the poll: the Royal Crimson Years of Fripp with some silent & solo bits thrown in for good measure & required contrast.

Favorite period

Postby steven on Tue Nov 13, 2007 5:35 am

I voted for 1963-1967. Being a geetar player (well, used to be before arthritis in the fingers) that period encompasses everything that got me interested in playing music. The tail end of the surf guitar and rockabilly era (yay Link Wray!), weird pop stuff like Jorgen Ingmann and his Echoplex, the start of the British invasion like the Kinks, Stones, Yardbirds, Animals, further out stuff like Jimi Hendrix, Captain Beefheart. I know it's before our dearly beloved KC entered the ring, but it prepared my mind for things to come. Seeing as how I'm the only one who voted for it so far, I guess I'm showing my advanced age :). If I could make my own category, it would be 1964 to 1974, so it would include my fave KC stuff as well.

One of my all time favorite guitar singles is his version of "Apache". I loved that as a kid, and still do today. Each time I've seen the California Guitar Trio, I've tried to get them to play their version, but I've never gotten the job done. "Apache" has been recorded over and over again, but none even come close to Jorgens.

That was the song I was thinking of, I've never heard anything else by Jorgen, I think he was more of a jazzer except that single. It still gives me goosebumps when I hear it.

I went with 1973 -- 1977 (KC power years, early punk, David Bowie, Led Zep, Steely Dan, etc.). I think that so many bands that were great were more developed and technology was becoming more advanced. For example, I think that by 1974 Emerson, Lake & Palmer were so much further than in 1972. But I could have easily voted for 1968 -- 1972 (KC early years, Led Zep, Jethro Tull, Genesis, Yes, Pink Floyd, etc.) being that so many bands were fresh then and that was when so much great music was the most popular too.
