1967 was the year in music, with offerings, ranging from Ballads to Rock to Motown to Psychedelia. The UK invasion of Lulu's
"To Sir With Love" from the Sidney Portier classic film. Doors sang "Light My Fire" and an Australian pop group "The Seekers"
hit the charts with "Georgy Girl". Aretha Franklin wanted (and got) a little "R-e-s-p-e-c-t". With those hits in our ears we headed to
Vietnam to hear a whole new set as well. 1968 was "Born to be wild" (Steppenwolf), a turbulent time in Rock 'n Roll. Raw sounds
competed on the charts with Instrumentals and sweet melodic tunes under laid with solid gold Motown like the Supremes'
"I'm a love child" and Dionne Warwick's "Do you know the way to San Jose?" The Bee Gees were heard in Brisbane, and
Simon and Garfunkel went from lyrical strength to catchy strength. And nobody could write off the prolific Beatles,
whose every song seemed to levitate to the top of the charts.
