This was, for the most part, an exercise to see how far back I could go with albums and still be listing LPs that I'd be more than happy to sit and listen to.  And I was surprised at how many gems I could find for 1963.  I'm pretty sure I couldn't manage to find as many as 20 albums for any previous year.  Singles, yes, but not albums.

I find it quite incredible how prolific many bands of the sixties were.
Managing to release 2 or even more classic albums within the same year!
Often with single releases not derived from the albums too.
And usually very busy touring schedules.

It was a hothouse environment.  The record business was attempting to milk the cow before it was put out to pasture, but the best bands rose to the challenge and surprised everybody, perhaps even themselves, by how much they could not only deliver the goods, but also by how much they could adapt, develop, and grow.
