The REAL 500 Best Albums Of All Time - Part 21 of 100

 This 1969 LP by the Bay area's "It's A Beautiful Day" is a rather obvious choice for this list! Just look at it! There's never quite been another song like "White Bird!" Case closed!

Kaleidoscope - "Side Trips"   The psychedelic jug band music on this 1967 LP by Kaleidoscope is timeless, with titles like "Pulsating Dream" and "Keep Your Mind Open!"

 On Rolling Stone's list of the Top 500, there's one LP by Steve Miller, "Fly Like An Eagle!" Personally I find these three LP's that came out in a row to be his best!        From 1968 - "Sailor" with the titles "Song For Our Ancestors," "Living In The U.S.A.," "Quicksilver Girl," and "Gangster Of Love!" C'mon it doesn't get much better! 

"Brave New World" - 1969 with Lonnie Turner on bass and Tim Davis on drums! If for nothing else but "Space Cowboy!" That's enough by itself!

Five months after "Brave New World" was released, Steve Miller came out with "Your Saving Grace!" Let me just say, the band was in a groove! This is a beautiful record! How to this day this man is still not in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is incredulous to me!! Sinful!!


  1. All excellent picks! It's a Beautiful Day is really a wonderful record. Great to listen to when in a mellow mind-slacking mood.

    1. The It's A Beautiful Day record is extra special to me, because that gal who sang the haunting background vocals, the late Pattie Santos, was a very good friend of mine for a couple of years!
