This awe-inspiring juggernaut of a debut both defined the band’s presence in pop-culture and defied the limited constructs of genre. Released on January 12, 1969, this American based band rearranged elements of traditional folk, blues, and contemporary rock to deliver what is arguably a pioneering keystone for our modern conceptions of hard rock. The album’s heavy reliance of fusing sounds and extrapolating the tracks’ length gives the record a theatrical appeal that helped change industry standards for what was considered a radio-friendly single. Listen to songs “Dazed and Confused” and “Good Times Bad Times” in Spotify and immerse yourself in the masterpiece that started a legacy!
