The period of musical growth from 1966 to 1969 was and remains unmatched in the realm of popular music. The landscape was changing at a feverish rate throughout the rock and roll world. Country music however is a traditional form and traditionalists didn't get the name for nothing. That's exactly why the outlaw country movement gets the attention it does.

That's also why none of these songs did well on the country charts. They were either too funky, too modern, or frankly, too black. The time wasn't right. That was then. Here we are right now though, about to go headlong into music you've probably never heard anything like.

I hope you have as much fun down the rabbit hole as I did.
