"In My Life"
The Beatles - Rubber Soul (1965)

I had actually already posted “Nowhere Man” here, but as I was saving the post, this song came on and I knew I had to put this up instead.  Interpret that as you will.

"Acknowledgement"
John Coltrane - A Love Supreme (1965)

It seems unfair to single out one track from this album given that it’s a tone poem.  Nonetheless, this is pretty much amazing.

Otis Redding
Wonderful World

"Wonderful World"

Otis Redding - Otis Blue: Otis Redding Sings Soul (1965)

Sometimes it’s nice to be told, and actually believe for a moment, that it really is a Wonderful World. 

Redding died in a plane crash just two years after this album was released.  He was 26.

"Outlaw Blues"

Bob Dylan - Bringing It All Back Home (1965)

Of the Bob Dylan albums I’ve heard so far in the context of this project (there have been 4 at the time of writing this), this one is probably my least favorite.  This feels very much a transitional album between The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan and Highway 61 Revisited.  Dylan was just discovering what he could really do, and the words were flowing, and he was ready to make something incredible.

"Pyscho"
The Sonics - Here Are The Sonics (1965)

These dudes never really broke nationally, but they found great success in the Northwest, where their “garage band” energy and pre-punk sound inspired a legion of bands to follow in their footsteps.

"I’ve Got A Tiger By The Tail"
Buck Owens And His Buckaroos - I’ve Got A Tiger By The Tail (1965)

Honestly, so much of early country music is just so excruciatingly difficult for me to get through, and this Buck Owens album is no exception.  But I can’t really do anything about that given my commitment to listening to every album in the book.  You, on the other hand, may want to skip it.
