music friday: when i was a teenager

Here’s the Facebook meme:

List 10 albums that made a lasting impression on you as a TEENAGER, but only one per band/artist. Don't take too long and don't (over)think.

I came up with ten fairly quickly. The most obvious omissions, in retrospect, were Dylan and The Yardbirds. Anyway, here are my ten, in no particular order, with one selection from each (I turned 13 in 1966, so my choices come between that year and 1970, when I graduated from high school):

Jefferson Airplane, Surrealistic Pillow (“Embryonic Journey”)
The Beatles (White Album) (“Yer Blues”) (Hard to get Beatles on YouTube, so The Dirty Mac will have to suffice.)
Otis Redding, Live in Europe (“I’ve Been Loving You Too Long (To Stop Now”)
The Rolling Stones, Beggars Banquet (“Sympathy for the Devil”)
Judy Collins, In My Life (“Hard Lovin’ Loser”)
Van Morrison, Astral Weeks (“Madame George”)
The Steve Miller Band, Children of the Future (Side One)
The Velvet Underground and Nico (“Heroin”)
The Doors (“The End”)
Love, Da Capo (“7 and 7 Is”)
