1967 was a very good year for music to buy 45's & LPs



OK.   I'm getting old. The following songs take me back to 1967:

Hello Goodbye by The Beatles:



NY Mining Disaster 1941 by The Bee Gees:



Ruby Tuesday by The Rolling Stones:



Hello Goodbye was released around Thanksgiving '67.   The song was also included in the "Magical Mystery Tour" LP.   It followed "Sgt Peppers" released in the spring.

It was the 3rd single of the year for The Beatles. The other two were "All you need is love" and "Penny Lane/Strawberry Fields Forever".

"NY Mining Disaster" introduced The Bee Gees to the US and the world. It was one of 4 hits that the Brothers Gibb had in '67. The other three were "To love somebody", "Holiday" and "Massachusetts".

"Ruby Tuesday" by The Rolling Stones was from "Between the Buttons", a great LP with a great cover. The B-side was "Let's spend the night together" which did not get air play on Top 40 radio.

Anyway, there you have it. 

1967 was a great year for pop music!
