Saturday Morning Flashback: 1969 [Playlist]

It was an historic year for space travel and a pivotal year for music. Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walked on the moon, fulfilling President Kennedy’s vow to get there before the decade ended. (And before the Russians!) Bands that would soon gain legendary status were finding early audiences at local venues like Chicago’s Kinetic Playground. Many of the artists who emerged in 1969 have remained among the most influential and memorable in the annals of rock.

Coming up:
