November’s Record Club: 1968 – VINYL REVOLUTIONS


Glossop Record Club is back on Thursday 8th November for 1968: Vinyl Revolutions, exploring the music of this notoriously turbulent year that saw protests and riots on the streets of London, Paris and across the USA, unrest that found its way into the music of the time.

The sunny optimism and idealism of the music of 1967 gave way to an array of different sounds. Pop turned in to rock as album sales overtook sales of singles in the UK for the first time. Some bands went deeper into psychedelia while others rejected the Summer of Love and went for a back-to-basics approach, embracing early rock & roll, Americana, folk and electric blues…

Our full album will be The Zombies baroque psych-pop masterpiece Odessey & Oracle, a flop at the time but whose reputation slowly grew over the years, gaining cult status and finally becoming acknowledged as a classic.

We’ll also be playing tracks from albums of a similar pedigree, alongside lesser-known cuts and established acts that were experimenting with new sounds and styles. And if you’ve got a favourite 1968 record you want to share, please bring it along.

It’s all happening at Glossop Labour Club. Doors open at 8pm, the music starts at 8.30pm and it’s free admission. See you there.
