No, we’re not covering Bob Dylan or Simon & Garfunkel. We’re going deeper in the vault. So, are you ready to experience the 10 best, rare acoustic albums from the 1960s?
The ’60s were an incredible decade for music. There was so much change, so much turbulence that fueled creative expression and artistic freedom. While titans like The Beatles, Rolling Stones, and Bob Dylan typically dominate the music conversations of the decade, I want to try something different this episode.
Instead of rehashing the genius of those artists, I want to take a closer look at some lesser known albums. From Son House to John Fahey, the artists featured in this episode eschewed mainstream success. However, their impact on the genre of acoustic music is huge.
Some of these artists and albums you may have heard of. Some of them may be completely new to you. And that’s okay! Part of my mission is to inspire and help you live your best acoustic life. And one way to live your best acoustic life is to expand your music horizons. So, be sure to give a listen to each of the albums on this list and find inspiration in a new light!
