Week 28 of music1967.com is up! Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and more!

Week 28 of music1967.com has been delayed, but let’s forget that and pretend that it’s a bonus post for this week, as Week 29 will appear tomorrow as usual.

This week we leave the rippling wake of the Monterey Pop Festival to look at the burgeoning scene in Birmingham, in England’s industrial heartland. Here, artists from the Moody Blues and The Move to younger acts like Nick Drake and Robert Plant are just getting up a head of steam.

Remember, there are 27 previous weeks already posted at music1967.com, and still a couple dozen more to come – including Week 29 tomorrow!
