Rock music during the late sixties tended to be a smorgasbord of blues, jazz, psychedelia, country among other elements. Bands often featured innovative guitar players who were instrumental in creating many of the signature guitar effects we heard even today. And most of them could also engage in lively blues jams that could last upwards of half-an-hour!!

Recently, Guitar Player published a Top 40 list of Greatest Guitar Albums of 1967. Most of the usual suspects are present, including Jimi Hendrix, Michael Bloomfield, Peter Green, Magic Sam, Albert King. I own many of the albums mentioned in the list and discovered a few gems I didn’t know even existed – like the Chuck Berry and Steve Miller’s live album from the Fillmore.
